All the evil thoughts in my mind should by your Grace be converted into noble thoughts of meditation on you. All the uselessgossips occuring in my mouth should turn into paens sung by me in your praise. All the bad acts in my physique should become humble prostrations unto you. Thus goes his prayer. The word “jAyathAm” has been explained twice in each sentence. jAyathAm as a word that gives several meanings. Here first it comes in the meaning arham=qualified, eligible. Then it occurs in the meaning Prayer. This can be understood from the word by word meaning for the sloka.  Else, we can also take it to mean all thoughts in my mind should be in praise of Your divine Name, all activities in my physique should be prayerful offerings unto You.
