O Mother Gauri, Bhavani, Durga ! Glory to you, glory to you !
Vishnu, Brahma, and Siva ever reverse you with devoted attention.
Your mid-hair streak is replete with vermillion and the mark of musk
looks enchanting upon your forehead. Your two eyes are very bright and
your face is beautiful like the moon. Glory...
Your body shines like gold and you are clad in bright red garments. A
garland of enchanting red flowers encircles your neck. Glory...
Your mount is a lion and you hold a skull in one hand and a dagger in the
other. Gods, humans, and sages are ever in your attendance, serving you, and
having all their afflictions removed by you. Glory...
