Oh Goddess PARVATI! Please protect me always.
You dwell in the lotus-hearts of eminent sages. You are GAURI, who is
skillful in destroying the evils of existence.
You are ruthless in subduing the cruel and proud ones. You bestow good
fortune on all those who worship your lotus-feet. You have the glory
of being worshipped by a host of celestials with great reverence and
joy. Your gait is like that of a king elephant. Your presence weakens
the enemies. Please dwell in my heart.
You possess rich tresses like dark clouds.
You sport fierce and formidable weapons.
You destroyed the demons like MAHISHA and are worshipped by all sages.
Your innumerable hands pervade everywhere.
You are the consort of SIVA, who subdued the pride of Cupid; the sagacious
sages, who have conquered ignorance, hold you in great esteem. Oh supreme
one with pure and noble virtues! You are adept in bestowing boons.
You, the one who is surrounded by BRAHMA, and other celestials and whose
tender feet are held in high esteem by a host of ascetics; do grace
me with a glance from your doe like eyes. Your form is exquisitely beautiful.
Please destroy all my miseries and relieve me of my sorrows. Oh the
immaculate one! Oh goddess with rich tresses like dark clouds, you are
adept in dispelling all difficulties. Oh sister of VARIJANABHA! You
are adored with gorgeous pearl necklace.
