Mathruke, sarva viswaika dhathreem kshamaam,
Thwam sudham, sheethalaam puthra puthrinutham,
Sneha vathsalya dharayutham, janakim,

Oh Mother, who is the goddess
Who is the loving mother,
Who cares for the entire world,
Who is patience personified,
Who is the nectar itself,
Who is very comforting,
Who is saluted by sons and daughters,
Who carries love and affection,
And who is the daughter of Janaka,
My salutations to you.

Oh Mother, who is the goddess
Who is the loving mother,
Whose anklets grant happiness,
Who wears tinkling waist belts,
Who has necklace with hundreds of jewels,
Who wears chains made of precious jewels,
Who wears ear studs as ornament,
And who has a diamond studded crest,
My salutations to you.

Who is the loving mother,
Who has cloud like tresses,
Who shines with her slow smile,

And who is extremely pretty,
My salutations to you.

And whose feet is decorated by lotus flower,
My salutations to you.
