A vessel containing anectarine juice (or the very essence of nectar) adorns one of your hands, whilethe gong, proclaiming your victory over the demons, is producing a deep ringingsound. O Mother, the story of your origin is delightful, so say the Vedas andthe Puranas, who always join in singing your glory.
EKA SAMAYA ASA VIDHIBHAYE BAAMAA
MACHIGE DEVAASURA SANGRAAMAA
SURA ASURANA MAHAN ATI BHAYAKAARII
MACHYO YUDDHA TIHUN LOKA MAJHAARI

Once upon a time when Brahmawas displeased with the demons, a war broke out between them and the gods.  Itwas so dreadful a battle that all the three spheres turned into a vastbattlefield.
TABA MAHISHAASURA NIJABHUJABALA SE
SURAHIN PARAAJITA KIINHYO CHALA SE
BANI AAPUHIN DEVANA KAHAN RAAJAA
INDRAASANA PARA JAAYA VIRAAJAA

It was then the redoubtabledemon Mahisha displaying his own indomitable might, vanquished the gods with thehelp of a ruse and crowning himself king of the celestials, sat glorious onIndra’s throne.
LAKHI SHIVA VISHNU KUPITACHITA BHAYAUU
ATI RISABAADHI BRUKUTI CHIDA GAYAUU
MAHAALAKSHMI TUU HII STHALA SE
PRAGATI TEJA PUNJA KE BALA SE

Observing this (victory ofthe demon), Vishnu and Shiva lost their temper and with their fury growingintense, raised their eyebrows (at the demon’s behaviour). O great goddessLakshmi, you sprang from the rich soil all by your own great mass energies andradiance congealed into your own body.
LAKHI SURA MUNI PRASANNAMANA BHAYAUU
NIJA-NIJA SHAKTI MAATU KAHAN DAYAUU
MUKHA MEIN BASE TEJA BANI SHANKARA
VISNU OJA BANI BASE BHUJAN PARA

When the gods and asceticssaw you, they were filled with joy; each of them gave you a weapon (endowed youwith his own power). In your face dwells Shankara as your radiance and on yourarms lies Vishnu as your lustre and vigour.
CHARANA BRAHMAA ANGULIMAHIN BHAANU

Brahma became your feet andthe Sun your fingers; Agni, the god of fire, became the light of your eyes; Prajapati gave you the rows of beautiful teeth and Kubera your name Lakshmi.
SABAI SHAKTI DEVANA SOPAAII
MAAN BHAIIN TEJA PUNJA ADHIKAARII
ATAAHAASA KARI GARAJYO JABAHIN
KANPI UTHYO DASAHU DISHI TABAHIN

You derived all your mightfrom the gods and thus, O Mother, did you become the embodied strength of thegods. When you burst into guffaws and roared like thunder-clouds, all the tenquarters shook ad trembled with fear.
UCHALYO UDADHI CHALITABHAYE DHARANII
MACHYO YUDDHA TASA JAAYA NA VARANII
SAKYO NA SAHI MAHIBHAARA APAARAA
THAKYO SHESHA KIINHA PHUNKAARAA

The ocean leapt and theearth moved and a fierce battle raged which cannot be described. The infinitelyheavy burden of the earth was more violently with utter weariness.
DAGAMAGA DOLATA BHAYEGIRI KAISE
RAAMA VIMUKHA NARA NAHIN TIRA JAISE
MAHISHAASURA JABA RACHI BAHU MAAYAA
MAHAA THAITA BHAA PARA PAARA NA PAAYAA

Mountains trembled as do theminds of men averse to Rama (If one’s mind rambles, it is on account of hisaversion to Rama) When the demon Mahisha exercised his delusive powers invarious ways with no effect (on the gods or on the course of the battle), heconsequently got wearied (and abandoned his attempt to subdue the gods or tocomprehend the mystery of their invulnerability).
TABA MAAN KESHA PAKADIVADHA KIINHYO

Then, O Mother, you caughthold of his hair and slew him, which caused the celestial deities to beat theirkettledrums in joy. Blessed, all blessed are you, O Mother Shri, whose praise issung by the Serpent-King, the great Lord Shiva and many others.
TAVA SAMAANA KO ASA JAGAJANANII

O originator of the cosmos(the very source of all life), is there anyone who can match you I generosity?You bless even the most wretched and impecunious with happiness and prosperity.If one is truly devoted to you, O Mother, he is rid of all his fears andafflictions.
SADAA LAKSHMII SATYA KIICHERII

You, O Lakshmi are ever Iservice of Truth and dwell in the hearts of the truthful (of those who are trulydevoted to you). O Mother, if one sings your glories with all sincerity, youfill his home with inexhaustible treasures.
DARASATA MAAN CHAVIPARASATA CHARANANA
BARASATA MUDRAA CHANANANA CHANANANA
HARASATA MANA TANA TARASATA PUNI PUNI

Riches pour down on one whoobserves the beauty of your countenance and touches your feet. He is filled withrapturous delight, and yet yearns again and again for a sight of you. O Mother,hearing my repeated cries do show yourself to me.
SUNDARADAASA SUMIRIDURAVAASAA
