Pratha Smarami Lalitha Vadanaravindam,
Bimbadaram pradhula maukthika shobhi nasam,
Aakarna deerga nayanam mani kundaladyam,
Mandasmitham mruga madojjwala phala desam
I meditate in the morning,
On the lotus face of Lalitha,
Whose lips are red as the pomegranate,
Who has nose shining like a pearl,
Whose beautiful long eyes which extend to the ears,
Who has ear drops made of very precious gems,
Who has a very subtle pleasant smile,
Her forehead glows with a mark of perfume.
Prathar Bhajami Lalitha Bhuja kalpa vallim,
Rathnanguleeya lasathanguli pallavadyam,
Manikhya hema valayangadha Shobha maanam,
Pundreshu Chapa kusumeshu sruneen dadhanam
I salute in the morning,
That Lalitha whose hand ,
Is like a wish giving climbing plant,
Who wears shining gem studded rings,
Who wears golden bangles with precious stones,
Who holds a bow of flowers,
And who has a goad in her hands.
Prathar namami lalitha charanaravindam,
Bhakteshta dana niratham bhava sindhu potham,
Padmasanadhi sura nayaka poojaneeyam,
Padmangusa dwaja sudarsana lanchanadyam
I worship in the morning,
The lotus like feet of Lalitha,
Which blesses her devotees with their wishes,
Which is a boat which helps them cross the samsara,
And who is worshipped by leaders of devas.
Sitting in the lotus posture,
And who holds lotus, goad, and flag
And the wheel in her hands.
Pratha sthuthave parasivaam lalithaam bhvaneem,
Trayyanha vedhya vibhavam karunanan vadhyam,
Viswasya srushti vilaya sthithi hethu bhootham,
Visweswareem nigama vang mana sathi dhooram
I pray in the morning, that Lalitha
Who is the supreme giver of life,
Who is the Devi who is the slayer of arrogance,
Whose power and protection resides in the Vedas,
Who is the pure and auspicious form of mercy,
Who is the cause of creation, sustenance and destruction,
Beyond scripture, speech, mind and intellect.
Prathar vadami lalithe thava punya nama,
Kameswarethi, kamalethi Maheswareethi,
Sri shambhaveethi jagatham janani parethi,
Vag deva thethi vachasa tripureswareethi
I repeat in the morning your holy names, Lalitha,
As the Devi of passion and love,
As one who sits on the lotus,
As the Supreme Deity,
As the Mother of the world,
As the Devi of words and language,
And as the one who is the Devi of the three cities.
Ya sloka panchakam idham, Lalithambikya,
Soubhagyuam, sulalitham patathi prabhathe,
Thasmai dadathi lalitha jadithi prasanna,
Vidhyaam sriyam vimala soukha manantha keerthim
He who reads these five stanzas,
In the morning , extolling the mother Lalitha,.
Who is easy to please
Would get luck, knowledge riches, endless fame
By the grace of Devi Lalitha.
