ॐ यत्प्रज्ञानमुत चेतो धृतिश्च , यत ज्योतिर्न्तर्म्रितम I
यस्मान्न ऋते किंचन कर्म क्रियते , तन्मे मनः शिवसंकल्पमस्तु II

OM YATPRAGYANMUT CHETO DHRITISHCH, YAT JYOTIRNTARMRITAM
YASMAANN RITE KINCHAN KARM KRIYATE, TANME MANAH SHIVSANKALPMASYU

Oh God! The mind is the source of wisdom, consciousness and fortitude in human beings; it is ageless, immortal, in the form of light and no work is possible without it. O Lord, purify such mind of mine, pious thoughts should evolve in it always.

Original writer: Rishi Vishvamitra

ॐ यज्जाग्रतो दूरमुदैति दैवं, तदु सुप्तस्य तथैवैति .
दूरंगमं ज्योतिषां ज्योतिरेकं, तन्मे मनः शिवसंकल्पमस्तु .

Om Yajjagrato Doormudaiti Daivam , Tadu Suptasya Tathaivaiti.
Doorangamam Jyotishaam Jyotirekam, Tanmay Mna Shiv-Sankalapamastu.

O God! The mind of man flees fast and far away in awakened state. It acts the same way during sleep as well.
It is the chief among all senses; such mind should be of pure thoughts.
