Nithyaananda kari,Varaa abhya karee,

Praaleyachala vamsa pavavakaree,
Kasi puraadheeswaree,
Bhikshaam dehi, krupaa valambana karee,
Mathaa Annapurneswaree.



O MOTHER ANNAPURNA!
Isvari, 2 who ever bestoweth happiness,
Granting gifts and dispelling fear.
O mine of gems of beauty,
Who washeth away all sin,
Who giveth purity to Thy devotees,
Who purifieth the mountain range,
Which is undestroyed even at the time of dissolution,
Presiding Deity of Kasi,
Mahesvari in every truth,
O vessel of mercy! grant me aid.

Mukthaa haara vilamba maana vilasa,
Dwakshoja kumbaan dharee,
Kasmeera garu vasithaa ruchi karee,
Kasi puraadheeswaree,
Bhikshaam dehi, krupaa valambana karee,
Mathaa Annapurneswaree


O Thou who hast clothed Thyself in cloth of gold,
Decked with ornaments made of many and varied gems,
Whose breasts rounded like a water jar,
Are resplendent with their necklace of pearls,
Whose beauty is enhanced by the fragrance of the Kashmir aloe.
O Devi! who presidest over the city of Kasi,
O Mother Annapur?a Isvari,
O vessel of mercy, grant me aid!

O giver of the bliss of Yoga,
Destructress of enemies,
Inspirer of devotion to dharma and artha,
Who art lustrous as the light waves of sun, moon, and fire,
Protectress of the three worlds
Giver of all dominion and all desires,
Presiding Devi over the city of Kasi,
O vessel of mercy, grant me aid!

Thou who maketh Thy dwelling in the cave of Mount Kailasa,
Who art Gauri, Uma, and Sankari, Kaumari,
Who giveth us power to understand the meaning of Nigama,

Opener of the panels of the door of liberation,
Presiding Devi over the City of Kasi,
O vessel of mercy, grant me aid!

And art the fount of the light of wisdom,
Pleasing the mind of the Lord of the universe,
Presiding Devi over the City of Kasi,
O vessel of mercy, grant me aid!

O vessel of mercy, grant me aid!

Thou givest all instruction onwards from the time of initiation,
And art the cause of the threefold manifestation of Sambhu.
Scented with the Kashmir aloe, Thou art the Isvari of the three regions.
Thou art triple waved,
And the night of dissolution.
Thou art the cause of all lasting things,
And fulfiller of the desires of those who desire.
It is Thou who maketh the greatness of peoples.
Presiding Devi over the City of Kasi,
O vessel of mercy, grant me aid!

Thou, Devi, art adorned with all various kinds of gems,
Daughter of Daksha,
Beautiful, pleasing the world
With the sweet milk of Thy left breast.

For Thou givest welfare,
And fulfillest the desires of your devotees.
Presiding Devi over the City of Benares,
O vessel of mercy, grant me aid!

Thou art She who shinest with the brilliance of millions of suns, moons, and fires.
Whose earrings are brilliant as the sun, moon, and fire,
Who art the cause of the colour of both sun and moon,
Who holdeth a rosary, a book, a noose, and a goad.
Presiding Devi over the City of Benares,
O vessel of mercy, grant me aid!

Protectress of Kshatriyas,
Great dispeller of all fear,
Mother, who art an ocean of mercy,
In very truth the ever auspicious giver of salvation,
The cause of the beauty of Visvesvara,
It was Thou who made Daksa to weep.
Remover of all ills,
Presiding Devi over the City of Benares,
O vessel of mercy, grant me aid!

Annapurne sadaa purne,
Sankara praana vallabhe,
Jnana vairagya sidhyartham,
Bikshaa dehee cha parvathy.
Mathaa cha Parvathy Devi,
Pithaas cha Maheswara
Bandhawa Shiva Bhakatamscha,
Swadesho Bhuvana Trayam.


O Annapurna! who art ever full (of bounty),
Who art dear to the life of Sankara,
O Parvati, give me aid!
My mother is Devi Parvati,
My father is Deva Mahesvara,
My friends and relatives are those who are devoted to Siva,
And the three regions are my fatherland.

Sri Adi Shankara
