1. गलाध रक्था मुक्थावली खण्ड मल,
महा गोर राव, सुदंष्ट्र करल,
विवस्थ्र स्मसनलय मुक्थाकेसि,
महा कला -कमकुला कलिकेयं.

2. भुजे वाम युग्मे शिरो असि धधान,

4. विरन्च्यधि देवस्थ्रयस्थे गुनांस्थ्रीन,

6. इयं स्वर्ग दथ्री पुन कल्पवल्ली,
मनोजंस्थु कामान यदर्थ प्रकुर्यतः,

7. सुरपनमाथे !सुभक्थानुरकाथे !,
लसद पूथ चिथे !यध आविर्भवस्थे !
जप -ध्यान -पूजा सुधा धोउथ पन्खा,
श्र्वरूपम् थ्वदीयम् न विन्दन्थि देवा.

8. चिधनन्द – कन्धं हसन मान्धा मन्धं,
सरचन्द्रकोति -प्रभा पुञ्ज बिम्भं,
मुनीनां कवीनां ह्रुधि ध्योथ मानं,
श्र्वरूपम् थ्वदीयम् न विन्दन्थि देवा.

9. महा – मेघ – कलि, सुरक्थाभि शुब्र,
कदचितः विचिथ्राकृथिर योग मया,
न बल न वृध न कमथुरापि,
श्र्वरूपम् थ्वदीयम् न विन्दन्थि देवा.

10. ख़्शमस्वपरधम् महा गुप्थ भवं,
मया लोक मध्ये प्रकसिकृथं यतः,
ठ्व ध्यनपूथेन चापल्य भवतः,
श्र्वरूपम् थ्वदीयम् न विन्दन्थि देवा.

फलस्रुथि

11. यधि ध्यान युक्था पतेतः यो मनुष्यस्त्धा सर्व लोके विशालो भवेच,
गुहे च अश्तसिधिर्म्रुथे चापि मुक्थि स्वरूपम् थ्वधीयम् न विन्दन्थि देवा.

1. One Whose neck is decorated with the garland of skulls of impure thoughts from which the blood of passion continues to flow, Who is terribly loud and Whose large teeth are frightening, Who is bare, Who lives in the cremation grounds, Whose hair is scattered, and Who is always eager for union with Mahaakaala, She is known by the name Kaalikaa.

2. One Who is holding the head of the ego and a sword in Her two left hands, and is offering blessings and granting fearlessness with Her two right hands, Whose waist is beautiful, Who is leaning forward from the weight of Her breasts which are filled with the milk of devotion, with the blood of passion trickling out from both sides of Her mouth, Who is slowly laughing, She is the One, Who is the Great Kaalikaa.

3. Great Kaalikaa, Whose ears bear two dead bodies as earrings, Whose hair is dear to the hearts of all, Who is sitting on dead bodies, Whose aasana is in the form of a dead body, and Who is being extolled by the rising voices of the shringaalees, She is that Great Kaalikaa, Who is universally famous.

4. O Mother! The best among the gods, Brahmaa having four mouths, Vishnu, and Lord Shiva, have become the best by worshiping every quality of Yours. O Mother, even the gods cannot attain Your form.

5. O Mother! You are the Great Kaalee or Sarasvatee Who attracts the world. You are the one Who takes care of devotees and destroys the enemies. Please let me know Who You are, You Who relish humanity and stop the voice. Even the gods are not able to attain Your form.

6. O Mother! This prayer of Yours is a heaven-provider and is equivalent to a branch of a Kalpavrisksha, a tree that fulfills all wishes just as soon as one imagines it. So, please fulfill all the wishes and heartfelt desires of Your devotees and worshipers. Those devotees are always blessed by Your prayer, even though even the gods are not able to attain Your form.

7. O Mother, Who always is drinking the drink of the gods, Who does favors for Her devotees! You always reside in a pious heart, even though the gods, Who remove the dust in their hearts with the nectar of recitation, concentration, and worship, are not able to attain Your form.

8. O Mother! Even the gods do not know Your form as the fruit of the heart’s pleasure, full of little smiles, a collection of moonlight from tens of millions of winter moons, You Who enlighten the hearts of poets and saints.

9. O Mother! Sometimes You become Mahaa Kaalee as dark as the great clouds, sometimes You become Mahaa Lakshmee bearing beautiful red color, and sometimes You become white-colored Mahaa Sarasvatee. Sometimes You become Yogamaayaa with most amazing form that awestrucks. The reality is that You are not a girl, not an old lady, not a young lady, and even the gods are unable to know Your form.

10. O Mother! Please forgive this crime of mine that I disclosed a confidential form of Yours to the world as I became childish while focused on You alone. Even the gods are not able to attain Your form!

11. O Mother! If a person recites these praises while concentrating on Mahaa Kaalee, he or she becomes great in this world, and all eight Siddhis reside in that person’s house. That devotee is liberated: he or she attains Moksha or salvation upon his or her death – even though the gods do not know Your form!

Here ends the Kaalikaashtakam.
