First dhyāna(dhyāna mantra of Viṣṇu/Vāsudeva of the Viṣṇujāgara/Gonda Cauphari Sabha) from the paddhati of Shri Nabin Chandra Sharma of Dipila village in Mangaldai

oṃ vāsudeva śuddhasphaṭika saṃkāśaṃ ajānulamvita vanamālopaśobhitaṃ।
pītavastrayugadharaṃ kuṇḍalāṃkṛta karṇāpāniyugalaṃ śrīvatsakaustubhoraskam॥
