Sri Parasara Uvacha:-
Sage Parasara said:-

1.Simhasana gatha Sakraa samprapya tridhivam puna,
Deva Rajya sthitho Devim thushtavabja karaam thatha.

Lord Indra went to his throne in the greatest heaven again,
And  started pleasing  the Goddess who is in land of devas.

Indra Uvacha:-
Indra said:-

2.Namami sarva lokaanaam jananim abdhi sambhavaam,
Sriyam unnidra Padmakshim Vishnu Vaksha sthale sthithaam.

I salute the mother of all worlds, who lives on the ocean,
Who is cause of wealth, who has eyes similar to the fully open lotus,
And who stays on the chest of Lord Vishnu.

3.Padmaalayam, padmakaram, padma pathra nibekshanam,
Vande Padma Mukhim  devim  Padma nabha  priyaam.

Salutations to the lotus faced one, Who lives on the lotus who has a lotus in her hands,
Who has eyes  like the leaf of the lotus, who is the darling of he who has lotus on his belly.

  1. Thwam sidhi  thwam swadhaa swaha, vashat thwam, loka pavani,
    Sandhya rathri prabha bhoothi, medha, sradha, Saraswathi.

You are  the occult power, food of manes, consort of fire, the Vashat, the purifier of the world,
You are twilight, night, lustrous day, cleverness, attention and Goddess  Saraswathi.

 5.Yagna vudhyaa, Mahaa Vidhyaa, Guhya vidhyaa, cha Shobhane,
Athma vidhya cha Devi thwam Vimukthi phala dhayini.

You  are  the knowledge of Yagna, great knowledge, secret knowledge, Oh pretty Goddess,
Oh Goddess you are also the knowledge of the soul and you give the blessing of salvation.

6,Aanveshiki thrayee varthaa Danda neethi sthwameva cha,
Soumya asoumyair jagat roopa thwayaidath devi pooritham,

You do research on three Vedas and you are  the law of punishment also,
You are the form  gentle and not gentle world and  due to you they are complete.

7,Kaa  thwanyaa thwaam ruthe Devi sarva yagna mayaa vapu,
Adhysthe   deva devasya  yogi chithyam gadhaa bruthaa.

Except you who can dwell as the ultimate aim of of all Yagnas,
As you  dwell  in the  yogic heart of  the god of gods who holds a mace.

8.Thwyaa devi parithyaktha, sakalam bhuvana thrayam,
Vinashta praya bhavath thwayedhaneem samedhitham.

If the entire three worlds are abandoned by you,
They would loose their soul and  under your control  they prosper.

9.Daraa puthraasthadha aaagara suhrudhanya dhanadhikaa,
Bhavathyetham maha bhage nithyam thwadeekshanaa nrunaam.

Oh great  and divine lady  it is  because of your glance daily  that a person,
Gets wife, children homes friends, relatives grains and wealth.

10.Sareerarogyam aiswaryam ari paksha akshaya Sukham,
Devi thwad drushti drustaanaam purushaanaam cha durlabham.

Oh Goddess if your sight falls on a man it is not difficult for him,
To get freedom from  sickness, wealth destruction of enemies and pleasure.

11,Thvam mathaa sarva lokaanaam, Deva devo Hari pithaa,
Thwayaithad  Vishnuna cha Amba jagat vyaptham characharam.

For all the worlds you are the mother  and God of Gods Vishnu the father,
The moving and non moving things of this  universe is permeated by you mother and Lord Vishnu.

12,Maa na  kosam thadhaa goshtam maa gruham ma parichadham,
Maa sareram, kalathram cha  thyajedhaa,Sarva pavani.

Oh purifier of all, if you leave  us all  then none of our treasures, cows,  homes,
Our possessions, our body and our wife, would be under protection.

13.Maa puthraan maa  suhrud vargam maa  pasoon maa Vibhusanam,
Thyajedhaa  mama devasya ViShnor  vaksha sthalalaye.

Oh Goddess who lives on the chest of our God  Vishnu, if you leave us out,
The sons or friends or cows  or ornaments can be owned by me.

14.Sathvena soucha sathyabhyam thadhaa seeladhibir gunai,
Thyajyanthe they naraa sadhya sandhyakthaa ye thwayaa amale.

Oh very pure one, once you forsake a man at any time, he is bereft,
Of goodness,  truth, cleanliness and good conduct.

  1. Thwayaa vilokithaa sadhya seeladhyai sakalair gunair,
    Kulai iswaryai scha yujyanthe purushaa nirgunaa api.

If   you glance at a person, though he does not possess  good character,
All qualities  like lineage, good habits and wealth would become his.

16.Sa slaghyaa, sa gunee dhanya sa kuleena sa Budhimaan,
Sa sooraa sa cha vikrantho yam thwaa  devi nireekshase.

If Any one is looked at by the Goddess , he becomes praiseworthy, one  with good character,
One who is wealthy, well born, wise, valorous and powerful.

17.Sadhyo vai  gunyamaayanthi, seelaadhyaa, sakalaa  gunaa,
Parangmukhi  Jagadathri  yasya thwaam Vishnu vallabhe  .

Oh consort of Vishnu, Oh mother of universe, if you are not interested,
Immediately all good qualities and good character   abandon him.

18,Na they varnayithum sakthaa gunaan jihvaapi Vedhasa,
Praseedha devi Padmakshi  maa smaam sthyakshi kadhaachana.

Even Lord Brahma would not be able to describe your qualities by his toungue,
Oh lotus eyed one, show mercy on me, please never ever abandon me.

Sri Parasara Uvacha:-
Sage Parasara told:-

19.Evem sree  samsthuthaa samyak praha devi sathakrathum,
Srunvathaam Sarva devaanaam praninaam cha  hithe ratha.

When The Goddess was prayed  like this by the hundred eyed one,
She told, “Please ask me, for the sake of good of Devas and  all beings.”

Indra  Uvacha :-
Indra   told  :-

20.Varadaa Yadhi may Devi, vararho yadhi chapyaham,
Trilokyam na thwayaa thyjyameshaa may athu vara para.

BY  your grace, if I am fit to be granted a boon,
If   you  never get not interested  in the three worlds, that would be a divine  boon.

21.Stotrenayasthadaina thwaam sthoshyathya abdhi sambhava,
Sa thwayaa  na parithyajyo  dvitheeyoshtu  varo mama.

Oh Goddess who lives on the sea, if you are happy with my prayer,
Please  never forsake me, This is the second boon requested  by me.

Sreer Uvacha

22.Trilokyam tri dasa sreshta na samthyakshyami Vasava,
Datho varo mayoyam they sthothra aaradhana thushtaya.

Oh Indra, the greatest among the  greatest devas of the three worlds,
Being very pleased with  your prayer and worship I am granting   you this boon.

23.Yascha  saayam thadhaa prathastorananena Manava,
Maam stoshyathi  na sathyaaham  bhavishyami  parang mukhi.

Towards that  man who chants this prayer in the morning and evening,
I would be very pleased  and truly I would never get  not interested  in him.

Parasara Uvacha:-
Parasara said:-

24.Yevam varam dathou Devee Devarajaya vai puraa,
Maithreaya  sreer mahabhaga,Stotraradhena thoshitha.

Oh Maithreya In early times the great goddess was  pleased,
By the king of Devas  and his  prayer and worship and gave him boons  .
