Oh! Daughter of the mountain! Kindly protect me. Your face resembles the full moon.
You reside on the banks of the Vahini river and you ride on the lion. You destroyed the clan of demons.
You are worshiped by Indra. Your bosoms are like the forehead of a youthful elephant. You are born from the fire of the third eyes of Siva. Your excellence is infinite.
Your eyes are like the lotus petals. You are gentle and moderate in your speech. The beauty of your gait rivals the swaying of the most beautiful elephant.
Your beautiful forehead, framed by tremulous curls, is adorned with Tilaka. Crescent moon adorns your tresses. You are worshiped by the kings of Vanci Nadu - Tiruvananthapuram. You give prosperity to their dynasty. You are the abode of excellencies. Kindly accept my hymns.
