Those who read the song sung by VyAsa, will be joyous, sovereign and powerful, and will succeed in appeasing obstacles, occurring by day or by night.
Bad dreams of men, women and kings alike will be destroyed and they will be endowed with unparalleled riches, good health and enhancing nourishment.
All the pain, devastation caused by fire, planets and stars will be of the past, so spoke VyAsa, emphatically.
Thus ends the song of praise of the nine planets composed by VyAsa.
