Salutations to the goddess who is blessed as one who proclaims the gem like Sri Vidhya Manthra,
Who fulfils the desire of power, who is considered as all the Gods,
Who is praised by all devas, who is the queen of all empires,
Who is Lakshmi, Who has within her all Vedas, who is learned and intelligent,
Who wishes for the good of the universe, who is the pure one who wishes for welfare of the world,
Who is one with all the good in her and who stays on the chest of Vishnu.
