The superwoman, creator, fearless and protector, O Devi you are the all-seeing one;
Be it Durga, Kushmanda, Chandraghanta, bringing abundant light like the shining sun!
Spread purity and peace with the lotus you hold, O my mother nature;
The epitome of wisdom and knowledge, pervade all, O Devi be my revered teacher!
Mother Kali, bring down your blade on ego and ignorant mind;
From depths of darkness, the righteous pure soul, make me find!
Bhramacharini, show me the eternal path to free me with Moksha;
For you brought the light to dark cosmos, showering pure sounds from your shankha!
Radiating light and glowing emancipation, washing away vice and sorrow;
Lifting burdens with your arms, O Gauri, bless me with inner peace for blissful tomorrow!
For you are the essence of the universe and reside within all;
Siddhidatri, invoke the Shakti in me so in timelessness my soul will stand tall!
