mamava sada janani mahisasura sutani (amba)
soma bimba manohara sumukhi sevakakhila kama dana nirata kataksa vilasini (amba)
pura vimata vadana pankeruha madhupe narada mukha maunI nikara geya carite
sarasIruhasanadi sura samudaya mani caru mauli virajita caranambuja yugale
kanaka bhasura divya kalapa rajita gatri vanaruha dalaterapa vibhanjana ruci netri
munigana sammohana mananIya mrduhase vinata jana kalpakavallari giri sute
kurume kushalam sada kamalanabhanuje niravadhi bhava kheda nivarana nirade
carunutana ghana sadrusharajita veni daruna danujali daraaa patucarite
Oh, Mother! The destroyer of Mahishasura, always protect me.
Your face is lovely like the disc of the moon. Your glances shower boons on those who serve you.
You are the honey bee hovering over the lotus face of Siva. Your story is sung by a host of Rishis like Naradha. You are worshiped by Brahma and the host of celestials. Your looks shine with the crescent moon and your pair of feet are like lotuses.
Your body is shining like gold. Your eyes put to shame the pride of lotus petals. Your soft smile bewitch the hearts of Rishis. You are the Kalpaka tree to those who worship you. Oh, the daughter of mountains!
Oh, sister of Padmanabha! Give me happiness. You are engaged in removing the sorrows of Samsara. Your hair is lovely like a fresh cloud. You have the glory as an expert, in destroying the wicked demons.
