Om Asya Sri Suddha Sakti málá mahá mantrasya
Upasthendriya adhisthayi Varunaditya Rishih
Devi Gayatri Chandah
Satvika Kakára bhattaraka pithasthita
Sri mat Kámesveranka nilaya
Sri mat Kámesvari devatá
Aim Bijam, Klim Saktihi, Souh kilakam
Sri Devi prityarthe Khadga siddthyarthe jape viniyogah
To the pure garland of prayers to Goddess Shakthi,
Which should be worshipped by all sense organs,
The Sage is the rising Sun,
The meter is Gayathri and the goddess presiding is Goddess Kameswari,
Who exists in the peaceful Kameswara who is sitting on the seat of Kakara Bhattaraka,
The root is Im, the power is kleem, Sopu is the pivot,
And is being chanted to please the Goddess and getting her sword.

He who makes the sword of her as his and keeps it in his hand,
Would become the emperor of all the islands in all eight directions.
Aarakthabaam trinethram arunima vasanaam, rathna thadanga ramyam,
Hasthambhojai sa pasangusa, madana dhanu sayakair visphuranthim,
Aa peeno thunga vakshoruha kalasa luta thara harai ujjwalangim,
Dhyyedh amboru hasthaam arunima vasanam eesawareem meeswaraanaam.
I meditate the goddess with lotus like hands, who is red in colour,
Who is Goddess of Lord Shiva, who is drenched in blood,
Who is having three eyes, who is of the colour of rising sun,
Who is pretty with gem studded anklets and who holds in her hand,
The lotus, the rope, the goad and has the bow and arrows of god of love,
Who shines in the garland of gems which are like stars,
Which is worn over her very ample and elevated breasts.
