Neeb Karori Baba MaharajjiO Mother Gauri, Bhavani, Durga ! Glory to you, glory to you !
Vishnu, Brahma, and Siva ever reverse you with devoted attention.

Your mid-hair streak is replete with vermillion and the mark of musk
looks enchanting upon your forehead. Your two eyes are very bright and
your face is beautiful like the moon. Glory...

Your body shines like gold and you are clad in bright red garments. A
garland of enchanting red flowers encircles your neck. Glory...

Your mount is a lion and you hold a skull in one hand and a dagger in the
other. Gods, humans, and sages are ever in your attendance, serving you, and having all their afflictions removed by you. Glory...

Your ears are decorated with earrings and your nose point is bedight with a priceless pearl. Your dazzling shrine appears as though millions of suns and moons are shining brilliantly. Glory...

You destroyed the dreadful demons like Shumbha and Nishumbha. Mahishasura wasalso killed by you. Your eyes have a smoky complexion and appear ever intoxicated. Glory...

 

O Mother Goddess Durga ! It was you who slayed the vile demons like Chanda,
Munda, Raktabeeja, Madhu, and Kaitabha to save the gods from their dread.

O Mother Goddess ! You are Brahmani, Rudrani, and Lakshmi Devi ! All the
Vedas and scriptures ever describe your glory. O Mother ! You are
incomparable ! Glory...

To propitiate you all the sixty-four yoginis sing and Bhairav dances to
the rhythm of mrdangas and damroos. Glory...

O Mother, the whole of creation is begotten by you and you also nourish it.
You destroy all the troubles of your devotees and grant them happiness
and riches. Glory...

Your four arms, which you raise in the boon-bestowing manner, look grand and
all-powerful.  All men and women ever worship you to get their desired boon.
Glory...

It is to ceremoniously welcome you that a camphor wick is kept burning in a
plate of gold. In Sri Malkota and Sri Kainchi Dham your flame, whose light
matches the dazzle of billions of gems, burns eternally. Glory...

Whoever sings this arati of Mother Goddess with full devotion and faith gets
a variety of riches and happiness declares Sri Shivananda Swami [the poet of this song]. Glory...
