In Praise of Sri Kanakadurga

श्री कनकदुर्गा स्तवम्

 Dr Varanasi Ramabrahmam

आत्मना दर्शयामि मनसा भजामि

बुद्ध्या जानामि चित्तेन स्मरामि

आनन्दरूपीण्यां कनकदुर्गायां

लीनं करोमि मिथ्याहं ममत्वं च

श्रीदेवीप्रीतिवृद्धये उपासयामि

महादेवीं त्रिपुरसुन्दरीं शारदाम्

प्रसन्नदृष्टियुतां शिवकामेश्वरीम्

सुस्थिरानन्यभक्तिप्रदात्रीं भवानीं श्रियम्

तडिल्लतातन्वीं दरहासोज्वलन्मुखीम्

कृष्णनदीतटस्थेन्द्रकीलाद्विन्द्राणीम्

शिवमनोवल्लरीं मल्लेश्वरप्रणयिनीम्

विमलाम् विजयवटिकापुराधीश्वरीम्

 

IN PRAISE OF GODDESS KANAKA DURGA

I sight Her through my self

I sing Her with my heart

I know Her with my mind

I repeatedly chant Her in my thoughts

Into Kanakadurga, the very embodiment of bliss,

Do I sink, submerging my false sense of self and identity.

I meditate upon the goddess hoping to augment her favour

I pray to Mahadevi, Tripura Sundari, Sarada

Sivakameswari, whose gaze makes all calm –

She offers unassailable, undivided loyalty.

I bow to Bhavani, Sri,

Her body a streak of lightning, her face ablaze with a cavernous smile.

She resides on Indra Kiladri, on the banks of the Krishna river.

Indrani, entwined around Shiva’s heart like a creeper, the beloved of Lord Malleswara,

Eternally pure, our lady of Vijayawatika.

Goddess Kanadurga is the presiding deity of Vijayawada, situated on the banks of river Krishna in Andhra Pradesh. Malleswara is Lord Siva, the beloved consort of goddess Kanakadurga.
