Translation

a1... having wrapped a turban on his head ... All knowing one, you, Brahma-god, are one who knows brahma.
a2You, who, having seized the vessel of compassion with the hand of your mind, all filled with the water of friendship, let go the world from the terrible Kleśas of eighteen kinds into the pure town of Nirvāṇa!
a4Lord, you made this world that is lost in the wilderness of samsāra, brought... Kleśa..., descend onto the (right) way.
b1You are... to the town of Nirvāṇa.
b1+The world has long been sick with the diseases of the Kleśas of eighteen kinds, without a doctor .
b2+With thirty seven medicines, you mixed together the sweet, wholesome immortal medicine that is the law.
b3+Whoever you give the immortal medicine that is the law to drink, they will avert illness and they never die.
b4+You who makes subside all diseases of the Kleśas, all-knowing one, you are the doctor who knows the teaching.

Other

b2+Mit den siebenunddreißig Heilmitteln hast du das süße Aṃrta-Heilmittel des guten Gesetzes gemischt. (Schmidt 1974: 459)
b3+Whom you give the nectar medicine of the law to drink, they will remove illness and never die. (Peyrot 2013b: 703)
b3+Denen du als Heilmittel den Gesetzesnektar zu trinken geben wirst, die werden die Krankheit entfernen und sterben niemals. (Schmidt 1974: 115)
