Devyā Ārātrikam

O Goddess! O Mother, Who is very beautiful, Who dwells at the bank of the River Pravarā, Who is put-forth by the Veda, Who roams in the Kṣīrasāgara ocean, Who is known as Nārāyaṇī, Who is present in the heart, Who is the summary of the creation, Who is the basis of existence, Who is wealth and knowledge, Who delightfully protects those who seek protection, and Who is worthy of praise from the groups of sages! Be victorious, be victorious. Absolve me, who has fallen into the well of metempsychosis here.[1—2]

O Goddess! O Mother, Who is very beautiful, Who has a face like that of a divine-moon, Who has teeth like shiny jasmine flowers, Whose nails of the feet are enough to humble the beauty of Madana (Kāmadeva), Who destroyed the demons Madhu and Kaiṭabha, Who has bloomed lotus-like eyes, Who reclines on the coils of the serpent-king, Who has the king of birds (Garuḍa) as a vehicle, Who is complex, and Who burns away the forest-like troubles! Be victorious, be victorious. Absolve me, who has fallen into the well of metempsychosis here.[3—4]

O Goddess! O Mother, Who is very beautiful, Who has anklets marked in Her feet, Who has ornaments made of jewels and pearls, Who is wrapped up with apparel, Who has a beautiful lotus like face, Who absolves the disease and fear of Śakra (Indra), Who causes bliss to the Brahman, Who is the final refuge, and Who absolved Gaja and Grāha! Be compassionate on me. Be victorious, be victorious. Absolve me, who has fallen into the well of metempsychosis here.[5—6]

Having slayed the neck of Rāhu, You saved the demi-gods from death. You give the all-protecting divine nectar of immortality to the demi-gods. You make the best and skilful demons fight in battles. O Goddess, Who gives boon to Madhvamuni! Protect the devotees. O Goddess! O Mother, Who is very beautiful! Be victorious, be victorious. Absolve me, who has fallen into the well of metempsychosis here.[7—8]

Footnotes:

1 This eulogy is written on Mohinī, the incarnation of Viṣṇu, envisioned as Divine Mother. It is really beautiful in metaphors and the concept seems rare to us as well. Hope the readers will like it.
