PREMA SAHITA NITA
MAHAAKAALII MAIYAA KI
ARI DALA DARANII MANGALA BHARANII
DUKHAHARINII SUKHADAIYAA KII
I perform Aarti with unfailing regularity and faith in adoration of the Great Mother Kali who tramples under foot every one of her adversaries and tears his body to pieces, bestows blessings (upon her devotees), dispels distress and brings happiness.
TUMA HII AGAMA BHAVA BHARANE VAALII,
TUMA HII JAGATA LAYA KARANE VAALII
TUMA HII KASHTA LAKHI NIJA BHAKTANA PARA,
AAKARA TURATA SAHAIYAA KII
You are the elusive creator who populates the universe and destroys it at will. Observing your votaries in distress, you hasten to help them out.
TUMHIN PRABALA HO HARI KII SHAKTI,
RUDRA BHAVA SHANKARA KII BHAKTI
TUMHIN JANANI PATAVAARA BANII,
IKA SEVAKA SUNDARA NAIYAA KII
You are the indomitable might of Hari, devotion of Rudra, Bhava or Shankara. You are, O Mother, the rudder pedal to steer the boat of your devotee, Sundardasa.
