Oh! Goddess Sri Shakthi, Oh! Consort of Lord Parambhrama ! Exponents of Veda portraits you as Goddess Sri Saraswathi, consort of Lord Brahma and you are Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, consort of Lord Hari and you are Goddess Sri Parvathi, consort of Lord Hara as well.  Oh! Goddess Sri Shakthi, I believe you are beyond these supreme forces; you are Goddess Mahamaya who governs the entire universe with an impregnable, inexpressible and eternal glory.



Oh! Goddess Sri Shakthi, Oh! Mother of the Universe, I earnestly prays to bless me with the knowledge of ultimate wisdom and when will be able to consume the elixir of nectar, red in color originates from your lotus feet, ultimately it will become the colorful seep of betel flowing from the mouth of Goddess Sri Saraswathi which is capable to turn a born dumb into intellectual.


Oh!

Oh! Goddess Sri Shakthi, Oh! Girisuthey, Lord Manmatha who bears the five cupid arrows for kindling sensual pleasures beleaguered Lord Rudra with the case of arrow made of your legs.  Surprisingly, the case of arrow holds double the number of arrows.  Your toe nails becomes sharpened at the constant touch of the crowns of the deities who prostrate before you, assumes the form of ten powerful arrows.
