Morning prayer to Durga
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Durga is the fearsome aspect of Goddess Parvathi and was created by her to fight against Shumbha and Nishumbha.
Namasthe saranye Shive, saanukamhe, Namasthe Jagat vyapike viswa roope, Namasthe jagat vandhya padaravinde, Namasthe jagat dharini Trahi Durge,
Salutations to her who is the slave of peace,
And filled with compassion,
Salutations to her who is spread all over the world,
And who is of the form of universe,
Salutations to her whose lotus feet,
Are worshipped by all the world,
Salutations to her who takes care of the world,
Pease take care of me, Oh Durge.
