MEANING:

O Goddess Kamakshi ! Protect me

Ekamreshwari, the sovereign of earth, adorned by Vagishwari, the goddess of speech, you are the supreme suzerain.

Please bestow on me the unflinching devotion of your feet. I am afraid of the various materialistic influences steeped in ignorance ("Ajaana"). You are soccour to the afflicted and the protected of devotees.

Parameshwari! You have the brave warrior ("Vitara") for a son. You sport the noose, the goad, bow and arrow. You are suvasini, the auspicious one dwelling in Sri Nagara.
