O Mother Śivā, Who is known as Mańgalāgaurī, Who has a shining-ice like complexion, Who has hairs with the gleam of lightening, Who has a new lotus-like face, Who has shining gems in Her ears, Who has a mild smile on Her lotus-like lips, and Who has eyes filled with tears of love (for child)! Be happy on me.||1||

May Śivā — Who possesses immense light, Who is adorned on the body, Who has a beautiful body, Who is like the bumble-bee for the lotus-like Lord of Girīśa (Śiva), Who bestows nectarine milk (to Her child), Who is associated with a cow, Who is Mańgalāgaurī, and Who is spotless — be happy on me.||11||

May Śivā — Who is the power behind the permanence of demi-gods, Who is the liberation for the devotees, Who is the voice spoken by the tongue, Who is the pleasure of the enjoying manifestations, Who is the devotion situated inside the devotee, Who is the inherent nature of a manifestation, Who is Mańgalāgaurī, and Who is spotless — be happy on me.||12||
