Sri Saradakhyaya namo Mahimne

Who lives on Sringa mountain, who is very dear to Lord Brahma,
Who is the ocean of mercy to her devotees,
And who grants them knowledge, mercy and al type of pleasures.

Brungali vidweshi kuchojjwalaya,
Angadari bhootha manojna hemne,

Who living on banks of Thunga is honoured,
Whose shining breasts hates swarm of bees,
And who wears lovely golden ornaments on her limbs.

Kaanadha sastra pramukeshu chanda,
Prajna pradhayasthu, namo Mahimne

Holding Veena in her hands, who has red lips,
Who grants all luck to, experts in Sastra like Kanadha,
And who grants very great wisdom.

Salutations to greatness of Goddess who has nmmon as her brother,
Who wears on her head the crescent of moon from the killer of God of death,
Who is worshiped by Indra and other Devas and who is full of mercy.
