Saraswati Matha Ki Aarthi

Saraswathi Matha Ki Aarthi
[Prayer to Mother Saraswathi]
Translated by P. R. Ramachander

1. Om jaya Saraswathi matha, Maiya jaya Saraswathi matha,
Sadguna vaibhava shalini, Tribhuvana Vikhyatha.

Om Victory to mother Saraswathi, Oh Mother, Victory to mother Saraswathi,
To her who is blessed with all good characters, To her who is famous in all three worlds.

2. Chandravadani, Pad masini, Sruthi mangalakari,
Sohe shubha hamsa savari, Athula theja dhari

She who has face like moon, She who sits on a lotus,
She who does only auspicious acts,
She who always rides on a swan,
And she who has incomparable luster.

3. Bhaye kar mein Veena, Dhaye kar mein mala,
Shees mukuta mani sohe, gala mothiyan mala.

She who keeps the Veena in her left hand,
She who keeps the rosary in her right hand,
She who shines with the crown studded with gems,
Wears a pearl necklace in her neck.

4. Devi saran jo aaye, Unkaa udhar kiyaa,
Paiti mandhara dasi, ravan samhara kiyaa

The goddess makes great, all her devotes who come to her,
She sat in the toungue of Mandhara* and due to it Ravana was killed.
*The hunch backed lady friend of Kaikeyi.

5. Vidhyaa, jnaan pradhayini, Jnan prakasa bharo,
Moha jnan ki viradhaa, jag se manth haro.

The Goddess who gives knowledge and wisdom, fill me with light of wisdom,
Destroy the blocks caused by passion to wisdom from this world.

6. Dhoop, dheep, phal seva, Maa sweekar karo,
Jnan chakshu dhey maatha, jag nissar karo,

Oh Mother accept my offerings of incense, light and offering of fruits and sweets.
Oh Mother, give me the eye of wisdom, and make this life very easy.

7. Maa Saraswathi ji ki aarthi, jo koi jan gave,
Hithakaari, sukh kari, jnan bhakthi pave.

If this prayer of mother Saraswathi is understood and sung,
It would give solace, pleasure, wisdom and devotion.
