kara-nyasam tatah kuryad
kara-nyasam—the ritual known as kara-nyasa, which assigns the syllables of the mantra to the fingers; tatah—thereafter; kuryat—should execute; dvadasa-aksara—composed of twelve syllables; vidyaya—with the mantra; pranava-adi—beginning with the omkara; ya-kara-antam—ending with the syllable ya; anguli—on the fingers, beginning with the index finger; angustha-parvasu—to the joints of the thumbs.
Then one should chant the mantra composed of twelve syllables [om namo bhagavate vasudevaya]. Preceding each syllable by the omkara, one should place the syllables of the mantra on the tips of his fingers, beginning with the index finger of the right hand and concluding with the index finger of the left. The four remaining syllables should be placed on the joints of the thumbs.
