महर्षीणां भृगुरहं गिरामस्म्येकमक्षरम् | यज्ञानां जपयज्ञोऽस्मि स्थावराणां हिमालय: ॥25॥
maharṣhīṇāṁ bhṛigur ahaṁ girām asmyekam akṣharam yajñānāṁ japa-yajño ’smi sthāvarāṇāṁ himālayaḥ
mahā-ṛiṣhīṇām—among the great seers; bhṛiguḥ—Bhrigu; aham—I; girām—amongst chants; asmi—I am; ekam akṣharam—the syllable Om; yajñānām—of sacrifices; japa-yajñaḥ—sacrifice of the devotional repetition of the divine names of God; asmi—I am; sthāvarāṇām—amongst immovable things; himālayaḥ—the Himalayas
Among the great sages I am Bhrgu; of words, I am the single syllable (Om) [Om is the best because it is the name as well as the symbol of Brahman.]. Among rituals I am the ritual of Japa [Japa, muttering prayers-repeating passages from the Vedas, silently repeating names of deities, etc. Rituals often involve killing of animals. But Japa is free from such injury, and hence the best.] of the immovable, the Himalaya.
