Soundaravalli Ashtakam

Soundaravalli Maha Lakshmi Ashtakam
Translated by P. R. Ramachander

[There are several temples in Tamil Nadu with Soundaravalli as the presiding Goddess. It is mentioned here that she lives in "Sri Saila" or the Mountain of Lakshmi. There is one Soundaravalli temple in Azhagar Malai. Possibly this prayer is addressed to that Goddess. I am not sure about it as the original "Sri Saila" is a Shiva temple.]

1. Soundarya nilayam Lakshmim, Sri Sailapura Vasinim,
Seegam aagathya sevathwam sritha sarvartha dhayinim.

Oh Lakshmi, store house of beauty, who lives in the mountain of Lakshmi,
Who gives all type of wealth, please come quickly so that I can serve you.

2. Soubhagya dhana chathure, Sasi mandha hase,
Dolasura suthalanoth drutha Sasthra hasthe,
Leela karabja vilasad mukha Chandra Sobhe,
Soundaryavalli charanou saranam prapadshye.

I surrender at the feet of Soundaryavalli,
Who is an expert in giving great luck, who has moon like pretty smile,
Who rapidly hit strongly Dolasura with weapons in hand,
Who shines with playful lotus like hands, and who shines like moon.

3. Kalyana Dathri, Kamaneeya padabja yugme,
Daridrya Dukha Bhaya harini, Bhaktha namre,
Vaikanasaya mahithe, Madhu bhedi Bharye,
Soundaryavalli charanou saranam prapadshye.

I surrender at the feet of Soundaryavalli,
Giver of auspiciousness, who has pretty lotus like twin feet,
Destroyer of poverty, sorrow and fear, who is humble before devotees,
Who is honoured by Lord Brahma and wife of the killer of Madhu.

4. Aananda dhayini, paraava sakshi bhoothe,
Narayani sritha janaa vana parijathe,
Brundharakedya charithe, Mahaneeya moorthe,
Soundaryavalli charanou saranam prapadshye.

I surrender at the feet of Soundaryavalli,
Who grants happiness, who is the witness for blowing away ills,
Who is the spirit of Narayana, who is forest of Parijatha flowers to those who depend on her,
Who is eminent has laudable history and who is Goddess with a praiseworthy form.

5. Mandhara, Kalpaka, Suchandana Parijatha,
Vrukshobhashobhi mani mandapa Madhya samsthe,
Bhaktharthi samharana padava pada padme,
Soundaryavalli charanou saranam prapadshye.

I surrender at the feet of Soundaryavalli,
Who sits in the middle of the gem studded arena,
Surrounded by trees of Mandhara, Kalpaka, sandalwood and Parijatha,
And who has the able lotus like feet which destroys the pain of her devotees.

6. Karunya poorna nayane, kalashobhimale,
Padmalaye, madhu komala vag vilase,
Sathpakath kalpa lathike, bhuvanaika vandhye,
Soundaryavalli charanou saranam prapadshye.

I surrender at the feet of Soundaryavalli,
Who has eyes full of mercy, who is the shining pot with garland,
Who lives in the lotus, who has ability to speak pretty and sweet words,
Who is the true wish fulfilling creeper and one worshipped by the world.

7. Keyura rathna kadakangadha karna poore,
Kanchi kalapa mani kanthi lasadh sareere,
Bhkatha vanaika vilasad kara padma yugme,
Soundaryavalli charanou saranam prapadshye.

I surrender at the feet of Soundaryavalli,
Who wears gem studded crown, bangles, bracelet and ear ornaments,
Who has a shining form due to the gem on anklets with bells,
And who has glittering lotus like arms blessing her devotees.

8. Devendra deva muni Narada kasyapa athri,
Vyasa angeera kalasa sambhava poojyapathe,
Santha antharanga nilaye, bhava thapa hanthri,
Soundaryavalli charanou saranam prapadshye.

I surrender at the feet of Soundaryavalli,
Who is worshipped in the form of a pot by Devendra, the deva sage Narada,
Kashyapa, Athri Vyasa and Angeeras,
Who sits with a peaceful mind and who destroys the pain due to birth death process.

9. Aapadha masthaka dhaya rasa poora bhare,
Thamradhara sphuritha hasa vidhootha chandre,
Sri saila vasa nirathe, karuna payobdhe,
Soundaryavalli charanou saranam prapadshye.

I surrender at the feet of Soundaryavalli,
Who is completely filled with mercy from head to feet,
Who has a moon like face which shines with copper red lips,
Who likes to stay in the mountain of Lakshmi and who is full of the milk of mercy.

10. Nerogadhaam nirupamanayacha prathapa,
Sampth yuthaam nigama sidha dasa tha aapthadhaam vai,
Sankeerthanan anudhinam labhadhe prapathya,
Kalyana bhagbvathi Soundhara veerudasthe.

Those who sing this prayer daily will get,
Disease free life, matchless fame,
And wealth and reach the world of god after their death,
And due to the blessing of Soundarya Valli would become auspicious.
