Translated by

 

P.R.Ramachander

 

Kasthuri panga  bhaswad  gala chalad amala  sthoola muktha valeekaa,

Jyothsnaa sudhaavadathaa  sasi  sisu makutalankrutha  Brahma pathni,

Sahithyambhoja  brungee  kavi kula vinuthaa sathwikeem Vag vibhoothim,

Dheyanme  shubra vastrhra  kara chala  valayaa vallakeem  vadhayanthi.                  1

 

May I be blessed with word power that is Sathvika by the consort of Brahma,

Who has moving necklaces  in her  musk applied shining neck,

Who has the luster of the body  which resembles the white luster of moon,

Who wears crescent on her head, who is the female bee enjoying the honey,

From the lotus leaf called literature, whose fame is sung by group of poets,

Who wears white cloths and who plays Veena with her bangles making sound.

 

Yekanthe yogi vrundai  prasamitha karanai  kshuth pipasaa vimukthai,

Swanandam  dhyana  yogadhbhi suguna sadhrusi drusyathe chitha madhye ,

Ya devi  hamsa roopa bhava bhata haranam  sadhakanaam vidathe,

Sa nithyam  nadha roopaa  TRibhuvana janani modham avishkarothu.                        2

 

Let her who exists in the mind  of  the sages , who have controlled all their senses

And have   won over hunger and thirst and are the meditating  with joy,

And appears clearly like a thread of a lotus at the end of  their Dhyana Yoga,

And  her  who with the form of swan  destroys the fear of birth among devotees,

And  her who is of the form of sound  and  the mother of the three worlds express her joy.

 

EEkshithri srushti kale tribhuvanamadha  ya thath kshanenu pravisya.

Sthemaanam prapayanthi  nija guna vibhavai  sarvadhaa vyapya viswam,

Samharthree  sarva bhasaam  vilayana  samaye swathmani swaprakasa,

Sa devi karma bhandham mama bhava karanam  nasayithwadhi Shakthi.                      3

 

 

Let the primeval power who at the time of creation  having seen all the three worlds Spreads her self -divinity  in the entire universe and protects them and at the end,

As well as Destroys all other powers  and merges them all within herself.

And who appears to the others as a self luminous  body ,

Destroy my ties with this world , which cause birth and death.

 

Lakshyaa ya chakra raje  nava pura lasithe  yoginee vrunda gupthe,

Souvarne saila srunge suraguna rachithe Thathwa sopana yukthe,

Mandrinya mechakangyaa kucha bharana thaya  kola mukhya cha saardham,

Samragnee saa madheeyaamadha gaja gamanadeergamayusthanothu.                             4

 

Found in the top of the golden mountain of Meru  the ladder of principles,

Constructed by the devas , which is found  to be present,

In the nine puras which were kept hidden by the Yoginis,

Accompanied by the black manthrinis decorating their breasts with ornaments,

Is the queen with a walk of  exuberant elephants  and let her give us long life.

 

Hreenngarambhoja brungi , haye mukha vinutha , hani vrudhyadhi heenaa,

Hamsoham  manthra ragnee  hari haya varadhaa haadhi manthaksha roopaa,

Hasthe  chin mudhrikadyaa hatha bahu dhanujaa hasthi krutha priyamaa,

Hardham sokaathirekam samayathu lalithaadheeswari pasa hasthaa.                              5

 

Let her Who is female bee  of the sound of Hreem,

Let her who is being praised by the horse faced ones,

Let her who does not either increase or decrease ,

Let her who is the Goddess of the Hamsa chant,

Let her who is the soul of mantras staring with ha,

Let her who wears the divine symbol,

Let her who has killed several asuras and the consort of Shiva,

And let her who is Goddess Lalitha and holder of the noose,

With love and softness put out completely my sorrow.

 

Hasthe pangeruhaabhe  sarasa sarasijam bhibrathim loka mathaa,

Kseero dhanwath  sukanyaa kari vara vinuthaa nithya pushtabhja gehaa,

Padmakshee  Hema varna  mura ripu  dhayithaa sevadhisampadhaam ya,

Saa may daridrya dosham dhamayathu  karunaa drushti pathai  rajasram.                      6

 

Let her who holds a lotus flower in her lotus like hands,

Let her who is the mother of the world, who was born in the ocean of milk,

Let her who was praised by the elephant who is forever famous,

Let her who has eyes like lotus and lives in a lotus ,

Let her who is of golden colour  and consort of the enemy of Mura,

And let her who blesses with wealth cure the defect due to poverty by her looks.

 

SAchid  brahma swaroopa amsa kala  guna yuthaam  nirgunaam nirvikaaram,

Raga dweshaadhi hanthrim  , ravi sasi nayanaam , rajya dhana praveenaam,

Chatwarimsath  trikone chathuradhika same  chakra raje lasantheem,

Kaamakshmi kamithaanaam  vitharana chathuraam  chethasaa bhavayami.                      7

 

I meditate on Kamakshi , who is the real form of the real divine Brhamam,

Who though having all good qualities does not have any qualities,

Who is without any emotions , Who destroys bias and hatred,

Who is one with moon and Sun as her eyes, who is capable of even giving a kingdom,

Who shines in the wheel with forty angles and who is capable of fulfilling all desires.

 

Kandharpe santhi darpe  trinayana nayana jyothishaa deva vrundhyai,

Sa Sankam sasrupatham  savinaya karunam yachithaa kama pathnyaa,

Ya devi drushti pathai  punarapi madanam jeevayaamasa  sadhya,

Sanithyam  roga santhyai  prabhavathu  lalithadheeswari  chith prakaso.                       8

 

When the God of love was completely burnt down by the light of the eyes of Shiva,

And when with humility and tears in her eyes Rathi devi

Begged the devas and Lord Shiva  for mercy  and  for his life

Then that Goddess by her simple sight  gave again life to the God of love

And let that  Lalitha Devi with her divine luster always cure my diseases.

 

Havyai  kavyaischa  sarvai sruthi chayta  vihithai karmabhi Karmasheelaa,

Dhyaanaadyai  rashtabhischa  prasamitha kalushaa  yogina parnna bhakshaa,

Yamevaneka roopam prathi dinamavanou  samsrayanthe  vidhignaa,

Saa may mohandhakaaraam  bahu bhava janitham  nasayathwadhi matha.                      9

 

Let the darkness due to passion which has crept in me over several births,

Be destroyed by the primeval mother   who destroys the sins of all those,

Who does fire sacrifices  and the yogis who are adepts in the eight fold path living in huts,

And who assumes many different forms for the sake of the good of people .

 

Lakshyaa moola trikone  guru vara karuna lesatha  kama peete,

Yasyaam viswam samastham bahu thara vithatham jayathe kundalinyaa,

Yasyaa Shakthi  prorohaadha  virala mamrutham vindathe yogi vrundam,

Thaam vande  nada roopaam pranava pada mayim praninaam prana dhathrim.              10

 

I salute the Goddess who is of the form of sound,

Who is pervaded with  the primeval sound “Om “,

Who gives the soul to all living beings ,

Who can be seen in the  kama peeta  in the basic triangle because of grace of Guru,

Who creates the entire world only through her own power as Kundalini

And who has the power to make available the rare nectar to her devotee sages,

 

Hreengarambodhi lakshmeem  , hima giri thanayaam easwaraanaam,

Hreem manthraradhya devim  sruthi satha shikarair  mrugyamanam mrugakshim,

Hreem manthra anthai sthrikutai  sthira thara  mathibhir dharya maanaam jwalanthim,

Hreem Hreem Hrem ithyaja srumhyudhaya  sarasije bhavayeham bhavaneem.               11

 

I meditate in the lotus of my  mind by chanting “Hreem, Hreem”, that Goddess Bhavani,

Who is the Goddess Lakshmi of the ocean of milk called Hreem,

Who is the daughter of the mountain, who is the goddess to Gods,

Who is worshipped by the sound “Hreem”,

Who is the deer eyed one can be seen by hunting  in the peaks of Vedas,

And who can be seen as light at the end of the Chant “Hreem” by great mediators.

 

Sarvesham dhyana mathraath savithuru daragam chodayanthi maneeshaam,

Savithri thath padarththa sasi yutha makuta   Pancha seershaa trinethraa,

Hasthagrai Shankha  chakradhy akhila jana parithrana  dakshayudhaanaam,

Bhibhranaa vrunda  mamba  visadayathu mathim mamakeenaam mahesi.                      12

 

Let my intelligence be given clarity and dept by that great Goddess,

Who is visible  as Savithri in the solar system , just by meditation of people,

Who wears the crescent, , who has three eyes, who has five heads and,

Who shines with weapons like conch and wheel in her hands for protection of people.

 

Karthree lokasya leela vilasitha vidhinaakarayathri kriyaanaam,

Bharthree swanu prvesadwiyadha anila mukhai, Pancha bhoothai swasrushtai,

Harthree  swenai vadhamna punarapi valaye kala roopam dhadhaanaa,

Hanyadhaa mulamasmath kalusha bhara muma bhukthi mukthi padathree.                   13

 

Let all the onus of accumulated sins of mine be completely destroyed by Uma,

Who playfully creates the world, who is the law giver behind all actions,

Who rules over all beings  created by herself using the five elements by entering them,

Who destroys every thing by her own power , who takes the form of “time” at deluge,

And who is  the one who is the good and bad of all giving them wealth and salvation.

 

Lakshyaa yaa punya jaalai guru vara charanombhoja seva viseshath,

Drusyaa swannhe sudheebhir  dura  dalitha maha padmena kosena thulye,

Laksham japthwapi  yasyaa manu varanimaa  sidhi manthro mahntha,

Sa nithyam maamakeene hrudaya sarasije  vasam angi karothu.                                      14

 

Let the pond of my mind be approved as her place of stay by that Goddess,

Who can be made the aim of any one by doing good deeds,

Who becomes visible to good people  by serving the teacher  in the maha kosa,

And all occult powers can be owned by any one who chants her mantra hundred thousand times.

 

Hreem Sreem Iym manthra roopaa hari hara vinuthaa, agasthya pathni prathishtaa,

Haadhi kadhyarna Thathwa, sura pathi varadaa , kama raja prathishtaa,

Dushtaanam dhanavaanaam mana bhara haranaa, dukha hanthri budhaanaam,

SAmragnee , chakra ragnee pradhi sathu  kusalm maha mongaraa roopaa.                      15

 

Let me given  great welfare  by the queen of Sri Chakra who is of the form of “Om”,

Who is of the form of “Hreem”. “sreem” and “Iym”,

Who is worshipped by Shiva and Vishnu,

Who is kept in her mind by wife of sage Agasthya,

Who is the meaning of the Haadhi and Khaadhi chants,

Who blesses Indra , Who is dear to Shiva, the king of love,

Who destroys the pride of bad asuras , who cures sorrow of sages and is the empress.

 

Sri mandrartha swaroopa , sritha jana duritha dwantha hanthrri  saranyaa,

Srotha smartha kriyaanaama  vikala phaladhaa  phala nethrasya dhaaraa,

Sri  chakranthar nishannaagruha vara janani, dushta hanthree varenya,

Srimath simhasanesi  pradhi sathu  vipulaamn keerthi mananda roopa.                         16

 

Let me given  great good fame by the one who sits on the throne,

Who is of the form of “Sreem”, who solves the problems of those who surrender to her,

Who gives results without problems to rituals prescribed in Vedas,

Who is the consort of God who has eyes on his forehead,

Who lives in Sri Chakra, who is the mother of Lord Subrahmanya,

And who is the killer of bad people and one who grants boons.
