The letters at the end of each line are labels and don't count. When chanting, adding an a after each of them makes the chanting easier, though this a is never written.

Also, the a that come right after a consonant do not count. They are there just to make the chanting easier.

These fourteen lines are called mAhezvarANi sUtrANi, or zivasUtrANi, because and old legend tells that pANini heard them from ziva and they inspired him the whole grammar. To this day, all students of Sanskrit grammar start their study by memorizing them.

The label N appears in two places.

The letter h appears in two places.

The sounds H and M do not appear in the list, because there is no need. They are always replacement sounds of s r m n. No nounbase, no root and no affix contains any M or H.
