Oh, Mother! You are transparent like the full moon! Always protect me.
You give all prosperity and destroy the mighty and cruel Canda and Munda.
You are the daughter of Himavan; give me well-being. You wear the crescent moon and are infinitely gracious. Your eyes are dark like rain clouds. Your conduct is lovely. You wear on your forehead the mark of sandal paste. You are the spouse of Nilakantha and you are the female elephant sporting in the forest of Vedas.
Your locks shine with fragrant flowers. Oh! giver of boons, your feet are worshiped by Indra and others. Your lips are red like the Japakusuma hibiscus. Your smile is effulgent like the lily. You are the Kalpaka creeper to your devotees.
Your form is exquisite. You reside in Kanyakubja. Your remove all the mass of sins. You dwell in the tranquil hearts. Your garlands are most pure and attractive. Your hair is dark as the rain clouds. You are the sister of Sri Padmanabha.
