BHAVÁNI-BHUJAÑGA-STOTRA - ॥ भवानीभुजङ्गप्रयातस्तोत्रम् ॥


षडाधारपङ्केरुहान्तर्विराजत्
सुषुम्नान्तरालेऽतितेजोल्लसन्तीम् ।
सुधामण्डलं द्रावयन्तीं पिबन्तीं
सुधामूर्तिमीडेऽचिदानन्दरूपाम् ॥ १॥

I bow to that embodiment of ambrosia which is Consciousness and Bliss incarnate. It melts the orb of the moon and drinks (the moon-light). It shines with its profuse lustre inside the sushumná located in the lotus of shadádhára.

Sushumná : a vein of the body supposed to be one of the passages for the breath.

Shadádhára : one of the mystical circles in the body.

ज्वलत्कोटिबालार्कभासारुणाङ्गीं

I worship that Goddess Bhavánè who is seated on the triangle which shines in the midst of the filaments of the white lotus. She is extremely beautiful with lovely and charming grace. She has a shining red body similar to that of innumerable rising suns.

`Oh! Great Goddess! I contemplate your lotus feet on my head as being served by the celestials such as Brahmá, Achyuta (Vishnu) and others. These feet are wet due to red dye and dazzling with the gems of the anklets jingling with bells.

सुषोणाम्बराबद्धनीवीविराजन्

Oh ! Mother! I worship your streak of hair on the three folds on the belly, as also the shining naval circling to the right. (I also worship your) hip having the red garment tied around the waist, adorned by the girdle studded with gems and tinkling.

Oh! Lotus-eyed Mother! I worship your two radiant breasts, round in shape comparable to lofty gem-studded pitchers. They are beautiful and are full with milk. Shining with a breast-lace and oozing at the top, they are beautiful and are full of milk.

I worship Goddess Bhavánè who glitters with (four) arms delicate like the Sirisha flowers, and which carry arrow, bow, noose and goad and which shine with bangles and bracelets.

I worship Goddess Bhavani who is extremely graceful and tranquil, who has Her lotus-face shining like the autumnal full-moon smiling with red bimbha-like lips. She is lustrous with ear-ornaments studded with gems.

I worship you. You are of the form of blissful knowledge. There is none else in the universe superior to you. You are the sun, the moon, the fire, the water, the sky, the earth, the wind and the mahat.

Here the Goddess is conceived as aúûamürti-eight forms as the Lord of the principles.
