Aarthi Sri Saraswathi ji ki


Translated by




( I found this prayer in Hindi in a small book published by B.M.Praminder Publications, Delhi -51.Aarthis are sung before the gods/goddesses in Hindu homes/temples in North India.)


1.Om Jaya Vinee vali , maiya , jaya Veene vali,

Rhidhi , sidhi  ki rahthi , hath there thali


Om Victory to the one who has a Veena,

Oh Mother, Victory to one who has the Veena,

By your blessings , growth and power always exist.


2.Rishi , muniyon ki budhi  ko  shudha thu hi karthi,

Swarna ki  bhanthi  Shudha  thu hi karthi.


You make the  knowledge of sages and saints  pure,

You make them as pure as gold.


3.Jnan pitha ko dethi , Gagan Shabdha se thu,

Viswa ko  uthpanna karthi , AAdhi shkthi se thu.


You give wisdom to the father by the sound in the sky,

And you create this world with your primeval power.


4.Hamsa vahini dheejai , bhiksha darshan ki,

Mere jag may keval , icha darshan ki


Oh Goddess who rides on the swan,

Give me the alms of seeing you ,

For in my mind  there is only,

The desire  to see you.


5.Jyothi jagakar  nithya, yah aarthi  jo gave,

Bhava sagar  ke dukh mein, Gotha na kabhi khave.


After lighting the lamp daily ,

He who sings this prayer ,

Would never suffer the tosses ,

In the ,ocean of sorrow of birth.
