In this mantra the deities Indra, Pusha, Tarksha or Garuda and Brihaspati have been mentioned. These deities are directly connected to the Science of the stars. The sky is divided into 27 parts based on the Nakshatras. Nakshtra means a particular prominent star or a group of stars occupying a prominent place in the sky. Many of these stars have been given the names which are generally used for the prominent deities. Chitra is an important star in the middle of the nakshatras. The Lord of this star is Indra, who is mentioned first in the mantra.

Om shanno mitrah sham varunah; shanno bhavatvaryama
Shanna indro brihaspatih; shanno vishnu rurukramah

Tvameva pratyaksham brahma vadishyami
Tanma mavatu, tad vaktaramavatu
Avatu mam avatu vaktaram
Om Shantih Shantih Shanthi

Salutations to Brahman, salutation to Vayu (the God of wind).
You indeed are the perceptible truth.
I understand you to be the perceptible truth.
I understand you to be the laws of ritam and satyam.
Let the laws protect me, let them protect the teacher.
Protect me, protect the teacher.
Om Shantih Shantih Shantih.
