Ambāṣṭakam

O Śāmbhavī! Mother Ambā, You are adorned with a crescent moon on forehead, You do not eat even leaves as food in fasting, You are known as Pārvatī, Kālī, Haimavatī and Śivā, You have three eyes, You are known as Kātyāyanī, Bhairavī and Sāvitrī, You are forever young, You bestow auspicion, You bestow kingdom and wealth, You are eternal bliss, You are above all, You are the Goddess, and You rule the Lords as Rājarājeśvarī.[1]

O Mohinī! Mother Ambā, You reside in the three worlds and grant eternal bliss. You are the speech (Vani), You like the music and song played by the flute of Krishna (One with flower in hand), You are auspicious, Your face is like the reflection of the Moon, You killed Dhūmrākṣa (a demon), You are eternal bliss, You are above all, You are the Goddess, and You rule the Lords as Rājarājeśvarī.[2]

Mother Ambā, You possess gems, stones and bracelet, You have a garland made of Keyūra, Your neck is adorned with a wavy garland made of jasmine, perfumes and pearls, Your hands are adorned by vīṇā (lute) and flute for merriment, You are seated in the Vīrāsana posture, You are eternal bliss, You are above all, You are the Goddess, and You rule the Lords as Rājarājeśvarī.[3]

O Bhadrakālī! Mother Ambā, You are Raudriṇī, You are Bagalā, Jvālāmukhī, Vaiṣṇavī and Brahmāṇī, You vanquish the three worlds, You are worshipped by the demi-gods, You are resplendent with light, You are Cāmuṇḍā, You are the mother who adorns, protects and nutures, You are Satī (the daughter of Dakṣa), You are eternal bliss, You are above all, You are the Goddess, and You rule the Lords as Rājarājeśvarī.[4]

Mother Ambā, You are wielding a monodent, a goad and a bow, You have a crescent-moon on the forehead, You are Vārāhī, You destroyed the demons Madhu and Kaiṭabha, You are honored by Sarasvatī and Lakṣmī, You vanquished Malla and Mūka demons, You are Māheśvarī and Ambikā (divine mother), You are eternal bliss, You are above all, You are the Goddess, and You rule the Lords as Rājarājeśvarī.[5]

Mother Ambā, You create, destroy and nurture the world, You are Āryā and Gāyatrī, You are devoid of adornment, You are full of the nectar of the praṇavākṣara Oṁ, You have separated the heaven and the earth, You are Oṅkārī, Your feet has been adorned by the son of Vinatā (Garuḍa), You destroy the imbecile demons, You are eternal bliss, You are above all, You are the Goddess, and You rule the Lords as Rājarājeśvarī.[6]

Mother Ambā, You are revered (bowed) by treatises, You are Āryā, and You are Mahādevatā. That Who gives birth to everyone — from Brahmā and others to the smallest ants, that Who entices the world, that Who gives birth to the five types of Praṇava syllables (like Oṁ), that Who is the art of intellect, You are that One, Who is adorned with a garland. You are eternal bliss, You are above all, You are the Goddess, and You rule the Lords as Rājarājeśvarī.[7]

Those who read these eight-cantos on Ambā (Mother), Which is staying continuously with the devotees of Ambā, Which is a result of the kind glance of the eyes of the Mother and Which has all the wealth absorbed in it, receive mokṣa from the Mother, Who is eternal bliss, Who is above all, Who is the Goddess and Who rules the Lords as Rājarājeśvarī, by the means of reading this best chant.[8]
