May I not be separated from the good fortune I have attained.
I am the owner of my kamma and must inherit its results.

May the guardian deities in this house be free from anger.
May they be free from hostility.
May they be free from adversity.
May they be happy.
May they be free from suffering.
May they not be separated from the good fortune they have attained.
They are owners of their kamma and will inherit its results.

all those destined for the states of loss, be free from anger.
