Meaning: (TK Govinda Rao’s book)

O Shankari ! Bestow good fortune. Your face is like the moon.

O Akhilaandeshwari - mother of the universe!

O Shaambhavi - worshipped by Brahma! You are Gowri

She is the eradicator of all difficulties; and the vanquisher of enemies. She is auspicious one - Kalyaani, who is benevolent to her devotees. She is the consort of Shiva and the Mother of this world.

She sports with Lord Jambupati - Siva, and enjoys protecting this world. Her neck is like a conch, and She is Bhavaani, bearing Kapaala and Sula - the trident.

She enchants Shiva, the enemy of Cupid and sustains the whole world. She confers auspicious things on her devotees. She is Mrdani, whose gait is like that of a swan.

She is the sister of Syamakrishna and is called Shyamala who has slender waist; she exults in the music of Sama chanting. Baalaa the maiden, who always burns to cinder the miseries of her devotees.
