Tantroktaṁ Devīsūktam

We continuously salute that Goddess, Who is the Ruler of the world, Who is auspicion personified. We are prostrate, with hands together, before Prakṛti and Bhadrā. Salutations to Raudrā, Nityā, Gaurī, Dhātrī, and Jyotsnā. Continuous salutes to the moon-faced Goddess, Who is blissful.[1—2]

Salutations for Kalyāṇī, Vṛddhi, Siddhi, and Kūrmā. Acquiring the grounds, salutations for Lakṣmī, Nairṛti, and Śarvāṇī. Incessant salutes for Durgā, Who is beyond the demon Durga, Who is the summary of everything, Who is the reason behind everything, and Who is popularity. Salutes for Kṛṣṇā and Dhūmrā.[3—4]

Salutations for that Goddess, Who is very serene as well as very fierce. We are prostrate before You. Salutations for Devī, Who is the support of the world, and Who is the mundane existence. We salute that Goddess, Who is present inside every living being in the form of Viṣṇumāyā; Salute to You, salute to You, salute to You.[5—6]

I salute that Goddess, Who is known as life inside every living being; Salute to You, salute to You, salute to You. I salute that Goddess, Who is present inside every living being in the form of wisdom; Salute to You, salute to You, salute to You.[7—8]

I salute that Goddess, Who is present inside every living being in the form of shadow; Salute to You, salute to You, salute to You. I salute that Goddess, Who is present inside every living being in the form of Śakti or power; Salute to You, salute to You, salute to You.[11—12]

I salute that Goddess, Who is present inside every living being in the form of hunger; Salute to You, salute to You, salute to You. I salute that Goddess, Who is present inside every living being in the form of patience and forbearance; Salute to You, salute to You, salute to You.[13—14]

I salute that Goddess, Who is present inside every living being in the form of natural species; Salute to You, salute to You, salute to You. I salute that Goddess, Who is present inside every living being in the form of shyness; Salute to You, salute to You, salute to You.[15—16]

I salute that Goddess, Who is present inside every living being in the form of peace or rest; Salute to You, salute to You, salute to You. I salute that Goddess, Who is present inside every living being in the form of dedication; Salute to You, salute to You, salute to You.[17—18]

I salute that Goddess, Who is present inside every living being in the form of splendor; Salute to You, salute to You, salute to You. I salute that Goddess, Who is present inside every living being in the form of wealth or Lakṣmī; Salute to You, salute to You, salute to You.[19—20]

I salute that Goddess, Who is present inside every living being in the form of course of action; Salute to You, salute to You, salute to You. I salute that Goddess, Who is present inside every living being in the form of memory; Salute to You, salute to You, salute to You.[21—22]

I salute that Goddess, Who is present inside every living being in the form of benevolence or mercy; Salute to You, salute to You, salute to You. I salute that Goddess, Who is present inside every living being in the form of satisfaction or contentment; Salute to You, salute to You, salute to You.[23—24]

I salute that Goddess, Who is present inside every living being in the form of Mother; Salute to You, salute to You, salute to You. I salute that Goddess, Who is present inside every living being in the form of movement or power to move; Salute to You, salute to You, salute to You.[25—26]

The Goddess Who is the controller of sense-organs, and present incessantly inside all the living-beings — our salutations for that Goddess, Who is present inside every living being. That Goddess Who is established, having pervaded the entire universe — we salute again and again to that Goddess.[28]

In the old days, that Who was eulogized, by the means of earlier attained wealth, by the demi-gods and by Indra (the king of demi-gods) — may that Goddess, Who is for auspicion, bring beautiful fortune to us and may She destroy the various calamities.[29]

That Goddess, to Whom we are saluting properly, while troubled by the demons; that Goddess, Whose devotion-filled rememberance destroys any calamities or obstructions instantaneously — may that Goddess remove our obstacles.[30]

Footnotes:
