S.D. TIWARI

(December.1955 / India)

Prayer of Navratri


Benevolent mother, Goddess Durga!
You are the mother of universe
You are the strength of the deities.

Mother! we fully devote, to you;
the first nine sacred days of autumn
and the first nine sacred days of spring.

Mother! accept my prayer and worship
of the Navratris, your holy nine nights
and keep blessed in your all manifestations.

Form of mother nature, Mother Shailputri!
Daughter of mountain king Himalaya!
bestow us the power and energy.

The gorgeous form, Mother Brahmcharini!
let the world live sacred and pure,
let the universe be filled with love and peace.

Having three eyes, Mother Chandraghanta!
holding crescent moon on your head,
establish justice and fairness in the world.

Holding eight hands, Mother Kushmaanda!
provide all and every thing we need
to survive and for the comfortable live.

Mother Skand Mata! The Goddess of fire!
give us power and wisdom to distinguish,
the right from the wrong and follow truth.

Mother Kaatyayini! Riding on lion
You persistently battle against the evil;
continue to slay bad and deceitful entities.

Hey Maa Kaalratri! Shubhamkari
Destroyer of the darkness and fear
don’t let the evils grow and keep us fearless.

Riding on bull, Mother Maha Gauri!
liberate the world of evil forces
and radiate the peace in the universe.

Mother Sidhidaatri! The greatest power
You’re invincible power, giver of boons to Gods;
keep us blessed and fulfil our wishes.

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
