Lalitha is the One Who Plays

Universe is Her play and display
In the morn hours I meditate on Her
On Her beauteous Lotus Face
With Nose shining like pearl
Eyes extending to ears
Wearing ear drops of gems precious
Festooned with perfume
And whose smile is so subtle !

Pratha Smarami Lalitha Vadanaravindam,
Bimbadaram pradhula maukthika shobhi nasam,
Aakarna deerga nayanam mani kundaladyam,
Mandasmitham mruga madojjwala phala desam



I pray to Her in the morn
Whose Hand is Abhaya Prada
Protecing, tutelary Deity
Wearing gems precious
Bangles golden with precious gems
Holding a bow of flowers
She is unrivalled in Beauty !

Prathar Bhajami Lalitha Bhuja kalpa vallim,
Rathnanguleeya lasathanguli pallavadyam,
Manikhya hema valayangadha Shobha maanam,
Pundreshu Chapa kusumeshu sruneen dadhanam

 

 

I bow before this Deity Great
Her beauteous Lotus Face
Blessing her devotess
With their wishes sincere
The Boat divine to cross this ocean
Of Samsar, of worldliness
Worshipped by celestials
Sitting in Padma Asana
The Lotus Posture
Holding Lotus, flag and goad
She is unrivalled in Majesty !

 

 

Prathar namami lalitha charanaravindam,
Bhakteshta dana niratham bhava sindhu potham,
Padmasanadhi sura nayaka poojaneeyam,
Padmangusa dwaja sudarsana lanchanadyam



I extoll Her in the morning hours

This Great Player of  the Universe
The Supreme Life Giver
Slayer of mortal arrogance
Her power and protection
Resides in the Vedas holy !
Mercy Personified, Auspicious, Pure
The Cause of Creation
Destruction and Sustenance
Transcending Scripture
Intellect, mind and senses !

Pratha sthuthave parasivaam lalithaam bhvaneem,
Trayyanha vedhya vibhavam karunanan vadhyam,
Viswasya srushti vilaya sthithi hethu bhootham,
Visweswareem nigama vang mana sathi dhooram

I chant Her Name holy
Always in the morning
Mother of the Universe
Supreme Celestial Deity
The Goddess of Learning
Of Word, of language
As the Mother Divine
Of relative states triune
Waking, dreaming and dreamless sleep
And as Fourth, Transcendence !

Prathar vadami lalithe thava punya nama,
Kameswarethi, kamalethi Maheswareethi,
Sri shambhaveethi jagatham janani parethi,
Vag deva thethi vachasa tripureswareethi

Phala Stuti

 

Who reades these stanzas five
Extolling this Great Player
Of the Universe
Will gain Knowledge, riches, fame everlasting
By Her Sovereign  Grace !

Ya sloka panchakam idham, Lalithambikya,
Soubhagyuam, sulalitham patathi prabhathe,
Thasmai dadathi lalitha jadithi prasanna,
Vidhyaam sriyam vimala soukha manantha keerthim
