Can the text be modified in the sens that the line should have rights below the translation? Means Line1. in Sanskrit followed by Line 1. in English, so that the person who reads it immediately finds the translationwithout having to scroll down. Unless we know the meaning of the mantra, it is useless to recite them! If you want I can help in organising the text in this way. You just need to post it.
