नारङ्गी नागरङ्गः स्याद्गोरक्षो योगसागरः

Meaning:
1: Narangi (Orange) is also called Naagarangah (literally means play of the Naaga), Goraksha (literally meaning protector of Go; Go means cow as well as water sometimes, so this may refer to its abundant juice) and Yogasagara (literally meaning an ocean of Yoga),
2: Naranga (Orange) is Amla (Sour, Sourness, Acidity), very Ushna (Hot, Warm), mitigates Pitta (A Dosha in Ayurveda which is compared to the Sun [Heating Principle]. The qualities are heat, sharp acting, fluidity etc) and Vata (A Dosha in Ayurveda which is compared to Air (responsible for movement). The qualities are coldness, dryness, lightness etc) and it is Sara (Purgative, Laxative, stimulates evacuation of bowels),
3: Its taste is a good combination of Swadu (Sweet) and Amla (Sour, Sourness, Acidity); it is Hrdya (Good for the Heart), Durjara (Difficult to Digest) and mitigates Vata (A Dosha in Ayurveda which is compared to Air (responsible for movement). The qualities are coldness, dryness, lightness etc).
