If this is read    in the morning along with the chanting of the  manthra.

Within six months  , you need not think any more about powers.

Boorje vilikhya   gutikaam   swarnasthaam   dhareyethyadhi.

12.If it  is  read   in the evening  without any dubt , Lord shiva would be with him,
And it can be written on palm leaf , put in a golden talisman and worn.

13.Purusho DAkshine vaahou  , yoshiddhama   buja thadhaa ,
Sarva sidhi yutho   bhoothva   Dhanavan o puthravan bhaveth.

And then he would get  all powers become rich and be  blessed with children.
