Tripura Sundari Veda sara sthavam
Translated By P.R.Ramachander
The prayer which is essence of Vedas addressed to Tripura Sundari.
Kasthuri panga bhaswad gala chalad amala sthoola muktha valeekaa, Jyothsnaa sudhaavadathaa sasi sisu makutalankrutha Brahma pathni, Sahithyambhoja brungee kavi kula vinuthaa sathwikeem Vag vibhoothim, Dheyanme shubra vastrhra kara chala valayaa vallakeem vadhayanthi., 1
May I be blessed with word power that is Sathvika by the consort of Brahma,
Who has moving necklaces in her musk applied shining neck,
Who has the luster of the body which resembles the white luster of moon,
Who wears crescent on her head, who is the female bee enjoying the honey,
From the lotus leaf called literature, whose fame is sung by group of poets,
Who wears white cloths and who plays Veena with her bangles making sound.
Yekanthe yogi vrundai prasamitha karanai kshuth pipasaa vimukthai, Swanandam dhyana yogadhbhi suguna sadhrusi drusyathe chitha madhye, Ya devi hamsa roopa bhava bhata haranam sadhakanaam vidathe, Sa nithyam nadha roopaa Tribhuvana janani modham avishkarothu., 2
Let her who exists in the mind of the sages, who have controlled all their senses
And have won over hunger and thirst and are the meditating with joy,
And appears clearly like a thread of a lotus at the end of their Dhyana Yoga,
And her who with the form of swan destroys the fear of birth among devotees,
And her who is of the form of sound and the mother of the three worlds express her joy.
Eekshithri srushti kale tribhuvanamadha ya thath kshanenu pravisya. Sthemaanam prapayanthi nija guna vibhavai sarvadhaa vyapya viswam, Samharthree sarva bhasaam vilayana samaye swathmani swaprakasa, Sa devi karma bhandham mama bhava karanam nasayithwadhi Shakthi., 3
Let the primeval power who at the time of creation having seen all the three worlds Spreads her self -divinity in the entire universe and protects them and at the end,
As well as Destroys all other powers and merges them all within herself.
And who appears to the others as a self luminous body,
Destroy my ties with this world, which cause birth and death.
Lakshyaa ya chakra raje nava pura lasithe yoginee vrunda gupthe, Souvarne saila srunge suraguna rachithe Thathwa sopana yukthe, Mandrinya mechakangyaa kucha bharana thaya kola mukhya cha saardham, Samragnee saa madheeyaamadha gaja gamanadeergamayusthanothu., 4
Found in the top of the golden mountain of Meru the ladder of principles,
Constructed by the devas, which is found to be present,
In the nine puras which were kept hidden by the Yoginis,
Accompanied by the black manthrinis decorating their breasts with ornaments,
Is the queen with a walk of exuberant elephants and let her give us long life.
Hreenngarambhoja brungi, haye mukha vinutha, hani vrudhyadhi heenaa, Hamsoham manthra ragnee hari haya varadhaa haadhi manthaksha roopaa, Hasthe chin mudhrikadyaa hatha bahu dhanujaa hasthi krutha priyamaa, Hardham sokaathirekam samayathu lalithaadheeswari pasa hasthaa., 5
Let her Who is female bee of the sound of Hreem,
Let her who is being praised by the horse faced ones,
Let her who does not either increase or decrease,
Let her who is the Goddess of the Hamsa chant,
Let her who is the soul of mantras staring with ha,
Let her who wears the divine symbol,
Let her who has killed several asuras and the consort of Shiva,
And let her who is Goddess Lalitha and holder of the noose,
With love and softness put out completely my sorrow.
Hasthe pangeruhaabhe sarasa sarasijam bhibrathim loka mathaa, Kseero dhanwath sukanyaa kari vara vinuthaa nithya pushtabhja gehaa, Padmakshee Hema varna mura ripu dhayithaa sevadhisampadhaam ya, Saa may daridrya dosham dhamayathu karunaa drushti pathai rajasram., 6
Let her who holds a lotus flower in her lotus like hands,
Let her who is the mother of the world, who was born in the ocean of milk,
Let her who was praised by the elephant who is forever famous,
Let her who has eyes like lotus and lives in a lotus,
Let her who is of golden colour and consort of the enemy of Mura,
And let her who blesses with wealth cure the defect due to poverty by her looks.
Sachid brahma swaroopa amsa kala guna yuthaam nirgunaam nirvikaaram, Raga dweshaadhi hanthrim, ravi sasi nayanaam, rajya dhana praveenaam, Chatwarimsath trikone chathuradhika same chakra raje lasantheem, Kaamakshmi kamithaanaam vitharana chathuraam chethasaa bhavayami., 7
I meditate on Kamakshi, who is the real form of the real divine Brhamam,
Who though having all good qualities does not have any qualities,
Who is without any emotions, Who destroys bias and hatred,
Who is one with moon and Sun as her eyes, who is capable of even giving a kingdom,
Who shines in the wheel with forty angles and who is capable of fulfilling all desires.
Kandharpe santhi darpe trinayana nayana jyothishaa deva vrundhyai, Sa Sankam sasrupatham savinaya karunam yachithaa kama pathnyaa, Ya devi drushti pathai punarapi madanam jeevayaamasa sadhya, Sanithyam roga santhyai prabhavathu lalithadheeswari chith prakaso., 8
When the God of love was completely burnt down by the light of the eyes of Shiva,
And when with humility and tears in her eyes Rathi devi
Begged the devas and Lord Shiva for mercy and for his life
Then that Goddess by her simple sight gave again life to the God of love
And let that Lalitha Devi with her divine luster always cure my diseases.
Havyai kavyaischa sarvai sruthi chayta vihithai karmabhi Karmasheelaa, Dhyaanaadyai rashtabhischa prasamitha kalushaa yogina parnna bhakshaa, Yamevaneka roopam prathi dinamavanou samsrayanthe vidhignaa, Saa may mohandhakaaraam bahu bhava janitham nasayathwadhi matha., 9
Let the darkness due to passion which has crept in me over several births,
Be destroyed by the primeval mother who destroys the sins of all those,
Who does fire sacrifices and the yogis who are adepts in the eight fold path living in huts,
And who assumes many different forms for the sake of the good of people.
Lakshyaa moola trikone guru vara karuna lesatha kama peete, Yasyaam viswam samastham bahu thara vithatham jayathe kundalinyaa, Yasyaa Shakthi prorohaadha virala mamrutham vindathe yogi vrundam, Thaam vande nada roopaam pranava pada mayim praninaam prana dhathrim., 10
I salute the Goddess who is of the form of sound,
Who is pervaded with the primeval sound “Om “,
Who gives the soul to all living beings,
Who can be seen in the kama peeta in the basic triangle because of grace of Guru,
Who creates the entire world only through her own power as Kundalini
And who has the power to make available the rare nectar to her devotee sages,
Hreengarambodhi lakshmeem, hima giri thanayaam easwaraanaam, Hreem manthraradhya devim sruthi satha shikarair mrugyamanam mrugakshim, Hreem manthra anthai sthrikutai sthira thara mathibhir dharya maanaam jwalanthim, Hreem Hreem Hrem ithyaja srumhyudhaya sarasije bhavayeham bhavaneem., 11
I meditate in the lotus of my mind by chanting “Hreem, Hreem”, that Goddess Bhavani,
Who is the Goddess Lakshmi of the ocean of milk called Hreem,
Who is the daughter of the mountain, who is the goddess to Gods,
Who is worshipped by the sound “Hreem”,
Who is the deer eyed one can be seen by hunting in the peaks of Vedas,
And who can be seen as light at the end of the Chant “Hreem” by great mediators.
Sarvesham dhyana mathraath savithuru daragam chodayanthi maneeshaam, Savithri thath padarththa sasi yutha makuta Pancha seershaa trinethraa, Hasthagrai Shankha chakradhy akhila jana parithrana dakshayudhaanaam, Bhibhranaa vrunda mamba visadayathu mathim mamakeenaam mahesi., 12
Let my intelligence be given clarity and dept by that great Goddess,
Who is visible as Savithri in the solar system, just by meditation of people,
Who wears the crescent,, who has three eyes, who has five heads and,
Who shines with weapons like conch and wheel in her hands for protection of people.
Karthree lokasya leela vilasitha vidhinaakarayathri kriyaanaam, Bharthree swanu prvesadwiyadha anila mukhai, Pancha bhoothai swasrushtai, Harthree swenai vadhamna punarapi valaye kala roopam dhadhaanaa, Hanyadhaa mulamasmath kalusha bhara muma bhukthi mukthi padathree., 13
Let all the onus of accumulated sins of mine be completely destroyed by Uma,
Who playfully creates the world, who is the law giver behind all actions,
Who rules over all beings created by herself using the five elements by entering them,
Who destroys every thing by her own power, who takes the form of “time” at deluge,
And who is the one who is the good and bad of all giving them wealth and salvation.
Lakshyaa yaa punya jaalai guru vara charanombhoja seva viseshath, Drusyaa swannhe sudheebhir dura dalitha maha padmena kosena thulye, Laksham japthwapi yasyaa manu varanimaa sidhi manthro mahntha, Sa nithyam maamakeene hrudaya sarasije vasam angi karothu., 14
Let the pond of my mind be approved as her place of stay by that Goddess,
Who can be made the aim of any one by doing good deeds,
Who becomes visible to good people by serving the teacher in the maha kosa,
And all occult powers can be owned by any one who chants her mantra hundred thousand times.
Hreem Sreem Iym manthra roopaa hari hara vinuthaa, agasthya pathni prathishtaa, Haadhi kadhyarna Thathwa, sura pathi varadaa, kama raja prathishtaa, Dushtaanam dhanavaanaam mana bhara haranaa, dukha hanthri budhaanaam, Samragnee, chakra ragnee pradhi sathu kusalm maha mongaraa roopaa., 15

Who lives in Sri Chakra, who is the mother of Lord Subrahmanya,
And who is the killer of bad people and one who grants boons.
