1. Poetry for Navratri (English)
The temple priest has rung his bell.
A cloud of smoke from candles and lamps
Haloes the Goddess, glowing bright
This beat of drums both maddens and dulls.
The incense burns: so heady the musk,
Our senses flounder in the flood.
This endless chant of sacred words
Soon drugs our lips and stuns our minds.
The Goddess, always staring down:
Her painted pupils cut through smoke
And read the secret thoughts we think.
We somehow feel this within our hearts.
To Mother, we know, we bow and pray –
Her form not just this image of clay.

Maa Bharti Jholi Khali!
Maa Ambe Vaishno Wali!
Maa Sankat Harne Wali!
Maa Vipda Mitane Wali!
Maa Ke Sabhi Bhakto Ko Navratra Ki Shubh Kamnae !!
Jis Phool Ke Khilne Ki Dua Karte ho

Aradhna Karo Maa Durga ki
Jo Mangoge Wo Jaroor Milega
Jai mata di

Maa Ki Jyoti Se Noor Milta Hai,
Sabke Dilo Ko Shurur Milta Hai,
Jo Bhi Jatahai Maa Ke Dwar,
Kuch Na Kuch Jarur Milta Hai.
