O Mother Durga,
with your powerful arms
embrace us.

May we hear
the chanting of your name
as your heartbeats
throughout the cosmos.

May the light from your eyes
shine into our souls
and dispel all darkness.

O Mother Durga,
we salute you again and again.

Our hearts yearn for your love
to shatter this illusion
you have created.

Why must you hide from us?
Do we not hunger enough
for your love?

O Mother, destroy
the whole universe
if you must, but do not take away
our devotion for you.

That we must keep
even into immortality.

Shanti shanti shanti!
