Durga Pancharatnam Stotram Lyrics

They Dyana YoganuGatha apasyan
Thwameva Devim swagunir nekutam
Thwameva Sakthi Parameshwarisya
Mam pahi sarveshwari Moksha datri. 1

Devatma sakthi sruthivakya gita
maharshilokasya pura prasanna
Guha param vyoma sada prathista
Mam pahi sarveshwari Moksha datri. 2

Paraasyasakthi vividaiga sruyasay
Swethashwa vakyothitha devi durge
Swabavikii gyana palakriya

Devatma Sapdena shivatma putha
Yathkoorma vayavya vacho vivruthya
Thwam pasa vichhethakari prasidda
Mam pahi sarveshwari Moksha datri. 4

Thwam brahmma puchha vivetha mayuri
Brahmma prathishtasupathishta gita
Gyna swarupatmathaya kilanaam
Mam pahi sarveshwari moksha datri. 5

      You are His Shakthi called Para, which is spoken in different ways,

      You are by your nature , the power force in all actions and wisdom,
      And so please protect me , oh goddess of all and oh giver of salvation.
      * This major Upanishad gives the basic teachings and concepts of Bhagwad Gita.
      devatma shabedena shivatma Bhuta
      yath kurma vayava vacho vivritya
      twam pasa vicheda kari prasidda
      maam paahi sarweshvari mokshadatri

      Formed by Self-power of sound of Siva’s aatma
      You are declared by sacred texts as the sound of Anahatha**,
      Which exists in Kurma and Vayavya*** as Shakthi
      You are known as one cutting off worldly attachments (or the rope that drags you to
      And so please protect me, oh goddess of all and oh giver of salvation.
      * OM
      **Anahata sabda – just before one enter Samadhi in yoga one can clearly hear Om inside
      which is not heard outside the physical body after this the person goes into Samadhi.
      * **Vayavya Dharana
      From the heart to the middle of the eyebrows is said to be the region of Vayu. It is black
      in colour and shines with the letter ‘Ya’. Carrying the breath along the region of Vayu,
      one should contemplate on Isvara, the omniscient. The Yogi does not meet his death
      through Vayu.) ( Naga, Kurma, Krikara, Devadatta and Dhananjaya are the five sub-
      Pranas; Kurma performs the function of opening the eyes
