(The morning meditation of the beauty of three cities)

Translated by P.R.Ramachander

(Here is a very rare morning prayer addressed to Devi Tripura Sundari)

Kasthurika krutha manogna lalaamabhaswa-.
Dardhendhu mugha nitilanchana neela kesim,
Pralambha manana moukthika hara bhooshaam,
Pratha smarami lalitham kamalayathakshim. 1

I salute in the morning Lalitha, with lotus like eyes,
Who has a thilaka* made of musk in her crescent shaped forehead,
Which has blue locks of hair flowing at both the ends,
And who wears ornaments like swinging bead chains.
*Ornamental dot

Muthaptha hema thanu kanthi jjari pareethaam,
Yekagra chitha muni manasa raja hamseem,
Pratha smarami lalitham parameswarim tham. 2

I meditate on Lalitha, who is the goddess of everything,
Who is all the blessings done by him who wears the crescent,
Who spreads the glitter of molten gold in all directions,
And Who is the king swan of the concentrated mind of sages .
