ूर्भुव ्वः।
तत्ितुर्वेण्यं्गदेव्य धीमहि
धियो प्रोदयात्1

Om bhoor bhuvah svah. Tat savitur varenyam
Bhargo devasya dheemahi.
Dhiyo yo nah pracho-dayaat.

Aachamanam

Chant this mantra thrice, each time sipping water from the right palm 2

शन्नो देवीरिष्टय
पो ्तु पीतये
शंि श्र्तु
3

Om Shanno deveer-abhiṣhṭaya4
aapo5 bhavantu peetaye.
Shanyor-abhi-shravantu nah.

देवी-्वूप ईश्व पूर अभीष्ट ीजे।
ीर हो ुधामय ल्याण दान-दीजे॥
ित ऋद्धि-िद्धि हिहो दा हमारा।
हती हे हृदयमेद्धर्म प्रेम-धारा॥
Devee svaroop eeshvar, pooran abheesht keeje,
Yah neer ho sudhaa-mai, kalyaan daan deeje

Nit riddhi siddhi barse, hit ho sadaa hamaaraa
Bahtee rahe hridai me, saddharm prem dhaaraa.

May the All-Pervading Divine Mother be gracious unto us to satisfy our inner cravings and send down blessings all around us.
O Shan gracious, abhishtaya pleasant, aapah omnipresent deveee divine Mother (radient One), bhavantu may shanyor blessings of peetaya contentment abhishravantu shower, flow to nah us.
