Victory and victory to Santhanalakshmi

Oh, darling of the killer of Madhu,

Who rides on the bird,

Who is an enchantress,

Who is the consort of he who holds the chakra,

Who pacifies emotions,

Who is pervaded by knowledge,

Who is ocean of good qualities,

Who has her mind in the good of all the world,

Who is worshipped by the music of seven swaras,

And who is worshipped by all devas, asuras,

Sages and all humans,

Please protect me always.
