Ayio kali kalmasha nasini, kamini,

Vaidhika roopini, veda maye,

Ksheera samudhbhava mangala roopini,

Manthra nivasini, manthranuthe,

Mangala dhayini, ambuja vasini,

Jaya jaya he madhusoodhana kamini

Dhanyalakshmi sada palaya maam.

Victory and victory to Danyalakshmi

Oh darling of the killer of Madhu,

Who destroys bad effects of kali yuga,

Who is most desirable god,

Who is personification of Vedas,

Who is pervaded by the Vedas,

Who arose out of milk,

Who is the form of all that is good,

Who lives in the sacred chants,

Who lives on the lotus flower,

And whose feet is worshipped by devas,

Please protect me always
