suṣumnāntarāle'titejollasantīm |

sudhāmaṇḍalaṃ drāvayantīṃ pibantīṃ

sudhāmūrtimīḍe'cidānandarūpām || 1||

 

I bow to that embodiment of ambrosia which is Consciousness and Bliss incarnate. It melts the orb of the moon and drinks (the moon-light). It shines with its profuse lustre inside the Sushumna located in the lotus of Sahasrara.

sulāvaṇyaśṛṅgāraśobhābhirāmām |

mahāpadmaki˝jalkamadhye virājat

I worship that Goddess Bhavani who is seated on the triangle which shines in the midst of the filaments of the white lotus. She is extremely beautiful with lovely and charming grace. She has a shining red body similar to that of innumerable rising suns.

 

 

kaṇatkiṅkiṇīnūpurodbhāsiratna

prabhālīḍhalākṣārdrapādāravindam |

ajeśācyutādyaiḥ suraiḥ sevyamānaṃ

mahādevi manmūrdhni te bhāvayāmi || 3 ||

 

Oh Great Goddess! I contemplate your lotus feet on my head as being served by the celestials such as Brahma, Achyuta (Vishnu) and others. These feet are wet due to red dye and dazzling with the gems of the anklets jingling with bells.

 

 

suṣoṇāmbarābaddhanīvīvirājan

mahāratnakā˝cīkalāpaṃ nitambam |

sphuraddakṣiṇāvartanābhiṃ ca tisro

valī ramyate romarājiṃ bhaje'ham || 4 ||

 

Oh Mother! I worship your streak of hair on the three folds on the belly, as also the shining navel circling to the right. I also worship your hip having the red garment tied around the waist, adorned by the girdle studded with gems and tinkling.

 

 

lasadvṛttamuttuṅgamāṇikyakumbho-

pamaśrīstanadvandvamambāṃbujākṣīm |

bhaje pūrṇadugdhābhirāmaṃ tavedaṃ

mahāhāradīptaṃ sadā prasnutāsyam || 5 ||

 

Oh Lotus-eyed Mother! I worship your two radiant breasts, round in shape comparable to lofty gem-studded pitchers. They are beautiful and are full with milk. Shining with a breast-lace and oozing at the top, they are beautiful and are full of milk.

 

 

śirīṣaprasūnollasadbāhudaṇḍair-

jvaladbāṇakodaṇḍapāśāṅkuśaiśca |

calatkaṅkaṇodārakeyūrabhūṣā

jvaladbhiḥ sphurantīṃ bhaje śrībhavānīm || 6 ||

 

I worship Goddess Bhavani who glitters with four arms delicate like the Sirisha flowers, and which carry arrow, bow, noose and goad and which shine with bangles and bracelets.

 

 

śaratpūrṇacandraprabhāpūrṇabimbā

dharasmeravaktrāravindaśriyaṃ te |

suratnāvalīhāratāṭaṅkaśobhā

bhaje suprasannāmahaṃ śrībhavānīm || 7 ||

 

I worship Goddess Bhavani who is extremely graceful and tranquil, who has Her lotus-face shining like the autumnal full-moon smiling with red bimbha-like lips. She is lustrous with ear-ornaments studded with gems.

 

 

sunāsāpuṭaṃ padmapatrāyatākṣaṃ

yajantaḥ śriyaṃ dānadakṣaṃ kaṭākṣam |

lalāṭollasadgandhakastūribhūṣo-

jjvaladbhiḥ sphurantīṃ bhaje śrībhavānīm || 8 ||

 

Oh Mother! I praise your lotus-face which bears musk on the cheeks and forehead, and the nostrils, the beautiful eye-brows and forehead, the lips and the graceful side-glance capable of conferring rewards.

 

 

calatkuṇḍalāṃ te bhramadbhṛṅgavṛndāṃ

ghanasnigdhadhammillabhūṣojjvalantīm |

sphuranmaulimāṇikyamadhyendurekhā

vilāsollasaddivyamūrdhānamīḍe || 9 ||

 

I praise your head which is radiant with the crest-jewel and the digit of the moon. It has the swarms of bees swinging inside the moving braids and is shining with the densely set white jasmine flowers.

 

 

sphuratvamba bimbasya me hṛtsaroje

sadā vāṅmayaṃ sarvatejomayaṃ ca |

iti śrībhavānīsvarūpaṃ tadevaṃ

prapa˝cātparaṃ cātisūkṣmaṃ prasannam || 10 ||

 

Oh Bhavani! May this smiling form of yours, which is beyond the Universe, very subtle and peaceful shine forth the lotus heart of mine, your child! May the literature in the form of all effulgence also dawn upon me!

 

 

gaṇeśāṇimādyākhilaiḥ śaktivṛndaiḥ

sphuracchrīmahācakrarājollasantīm |

parāṃ rājarājeśvarīṃ tvā bhavānīṃ (traipuri tvāṃ)

śivāṅkoparisthāṃ śivāṃ bhāvaye'ham || 11 ||

 

Oh Rajarajesvari! I contemplate on you, Traipuri, who are seated on the lap of Lord Shiva. You are the highest, are shining in the radiant Chakra and are surrounded by all groups of Shaktis led by Lord Ganesha.

 

 

tvamarkastvamagnistvamindustvamāpa-

stvamākāśabhūrvāyavastvaṃ cidātmā |

tvadanyo na kaścitprakāśo'sti sarvaṃ

sadānandasaṃvitsvarūpaṃ tavedam || 12 ||

 

I worship you. You are of the form of blissful knowledge. There is none else in the universe superior to you. You are the sun, the moon, the fire, the water, the sky, the earth, the wind and the Mahat (Cosmic Intelligence; the Great Mind).

 

 

gurustvaṃ śivastvaṃ ca śaktistvameva

tvamevāsi mātā pitā'si tvameva |

tvamevāsi vidyā tvamevāsi buddhir-

gatirme matirdevi sarvaṃ tvameva || 13 ||

 

Oh Mother Bhavani! I wish to praise you; Oh Knower of the Vedas and Agamas! You are unattainable through scriptures. People do not know the extent of your greatness. You please forgive this act of mine! I am indeed foolish.

 

 

śrutīnāmagamyaṃ suvedāgamādyair-

mahimno na jānāti pāraṃ tavedam |

stutiṃ kartumicchāmi te tvaṃ bhavāni

kṣamasvedamamba pramugdhaḥ kilāham || 14 ||

 

Oh Goddess! You are my preceptor. You are Lord Shiva. You are the Shakti. You are my mother and father. You are the knowledge. You are my kith and kin. You are my only refuge, thinking and indeed all in all.

 

 

śaraṇye vareṇye sukāruṇyapūrṇe

hiraṇyodarādyairagamye'tipuṇye |

bhavāraṇyabhītaṃ ca māṃ pāhi bhadre

namaste namaste namaste bhavāni || 15 ||

 

Oh Bhavani! Salutations to you again and again. Oh Auspicious one! Oh my refuge! Oh Meritorious One! Oh Compassion-incarnate! One who cannot be understood by Brahma and others! Protect me from the fear of the forest of mundane existence.

 

 

imāmanvahaṃ śrībhavānībhujaṅga-

stutiryaḥ paṭhecchrotumiccheta tasmai |

svakīyaṃ padaṃ śāśvataṃ caiva sāraṃ

śriyaṃ cāṣṭasiddhiṃ bhavānī dadāti || 16 ||

 

Whoever reads this meritorious hymn on Bhavani set in bhujanga-prayata metre with devotion, Goddess Bhavani confers on him the eight perfections (siddhis), prosperity and Her own external abode which is the essence of the Vedas.

 

 

bhavānī bhavānī bhavānī trivāram-

udāram mudā sarvadā ye japanti |

na śokam na moham na pāpaṃ na bhītiḥ

kadācitkathaṃcitkutaścajjanānām ||

       

iti śrīmacchaṅkarācāryaviracitaṃ

bhavānībhujaṅgaprayātastotraṃ sampūrṇam ||

 

Whoever joyfully repeats the name Bhavani thrice will have no grief, no confusion, no sin, no fear anytime or anyway or from any quarter.

 

Here ends the Bhavani Stotram in Bhujanga-Prayata metre.
