Those who read or hear these twelve names with devotion,
On the star Arudhra and Thithi Dwadasi would get rid of poverty and Leprosy,
Get rid of the fear of fire in forest and battle field,
And Get rid of the effects of the sin of killing a Brahmin or a cow and drinking alcohol,
If these are read daily for week, one can get rid of all problems,
Especially if it is read during eclipse or standing in water or in the banks of the river,
One would get the benefit of performing one hundred Aswamedha and go to the world of Brahma.
