Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Devi Meena Nethri brova rave
Daya cheyyave brova ravamma,
Sevinchevari kellanu chinthamaniyaye ra
1. Bala neeve gathiyani nine chala nammina na pai,
Parakela daya cheyya neekidi mela,
Divyamba kaladivarini sad guna sheela kiravani,
Devi neeya niradaveni tRiloka janani devi,
2. Amba mukha nirajita shata dara bimba,
Rakshitha devatha tavamma natanija sutha guha,
Herambamba, Shyamalamba, Bimbadhari,
Gauri.kadamba vihari, amba kambu kanthi hima shaila,
Vruksha palika devi Balambika Amba.
3. Vani rema vanditha rudrani ni sathevaru,
Kalyani Shyama Krishna nutha keiravani,
Veena vinodhini Sri Chakra kona nivasini,
Girvana vandhitha padaravinda Shiva,
Devi Kathyayani Amba
Goddess with fish like eyes,
Come to protect me, please come,
To protect me
Come as a wish giving jewel to all who serve you.
1. On me who has completely believed you, who is the Bala as my only help,
Is it difficult for you to shower your mercy on me,
Oh divine mother, the total embodiment of all virtues,
Oh goddess with cloud like tresses, Oh goddess who is the mother of three worlds,
Oh the greatest goddess, Oh Bhavani.
2. Oh mother whose prettiness is hundred times more than the moon,
Oh mother who protects the devas, who is worshipped by Ganesa and Subrahmanya,
Oh mother of Ganesa, Oh dark coloured mother, Oh red lipped Goddess
Oh white coloured Goddess who roams in the garden of Kadamba trees,
Oh Goddess whose neck outshines the conch, Oh protector of trees of Himalayas,
Oh mother and Oh Mother Bala.
3. Goddess worshipped by Lakshmi and Saraswathi, the consort of Rudra,
The do-gooder, the goddess worshipped by the black colored Krishna,
She who enjoys Veena, She who lives in the angles of Sri Chakra
She whose lotus like feet is worshipped by devas, the consort of Shiva,
The daughter of sage Kathyayana and the mother.
