[This great prayer praying for all that is good addresses itself to all Gods, sages, beings, places and sacred waters. It is remarkable in the sense that many of them addressed are great human beings known to the Hindus. People reading this rare stotra (prayer) would definitely lead a life of fulfillment and reach the land of Vishnu.]
