Oh Devi, you are my sole companion and refuge. At least glance at me for a minute.
You are illusion personified and are as resplendent as the green emerald. Please come and eliminate all hassles.
You are celebrated by major poets such as Kalidasa; you are the river of nectar flowing in the heart of the blue-necked Shiva; you are the refuge for devotees such as Ravi (Sun) and Shashi (Moon); you are the beautiful variations flowing from the Veena of Goddess Saraswati.
