Bala Satha Nama Stotram
[Prayer to Bala using 100 names]
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
[Bala is the form of Parvathi when she is a young. She is energetic, playful, heroic and kind.]
Aruna kirana jwala, ranchitha, savakasa,
Vidhrutha japa vatika, pusthika Bheethi hastha,
Ithara kara varadya, phulla kalhara samstha,
Nivasathu hrudhi Bala, nithya kalyana roopa.
Let that Bala, who is perennially good,
Who is reddish like the morning sun,
Who unites people and who is slow and careful,
Who meditates with help of the prayer rosary,
Who has a book in her hand and other offers protection,
Who has the sign of blessing in the other hand,
And who stands on the fully open lotus flower.
Live in my mind as goddess Bala.
