Vara Veena mrudu paa ni
Vana ruha lochana ranee,
Suruchira bhambara veni

Niratha jaya pradha sheela,
Varada Priya ranga nayaki,
Vanchitha phala dhayaki,
Sarasijasana Janani,
Jaya jaya jaya

She who has the blessed Veena in her soft hands,
Who is the queen with lotus like eyes,
Who has the very tasteful Goddess with bee like braids,
Who is the does only good and is praised by devas,
Who is the matchless lady with good character,
Who is the Ranga Nayaki who is liked by Varadaraja,
Who blesses every one with fulfillment of their desires,
And who is the mother of Lord Brahma who sits on a lotus
Victory, Victory, Victory.
