Sri Kalika Sthavam – Lyrics and meanings



|| Jai Sriman Narayana ||










I shall prostrate before supreme Goddess Kalika who has the complexion of dark clouds, her limbs are dark complexioned, she has incarnated at her own will, she is the essence of all philosophies and faith, she is impenetrable, she is ShivA who is the consort of Lord Shiva, she has great effulgence, she is decked in crescent moon that spreads intense luster,  her forehead has the radiance of Lord Surya who illuminates the whole Universe with its brilliance, she is worshiped by Mahendhra and Sage Kashyapa, she is eulogized by Sanathkumara,  she is worshiped by illustrious Suras and Asuras, she is pure, she is beyond description, she is not perceivable, she is devoid of Ragadhosha/emotions, her lotus feet are meditated by Mumukshu who yearns for the liberation from the repeated births, she is the essence of significant philosophies, she is decorated in garland made of head of corpse, she is mounted on the King of animal/lion, she is gratified with the recitation of sacred scriptures, she is the essence of pure consciousness and Veda, she is decked in venomous serpents as ornaments, she adorned in garland of skulls, she is perceivable for the righteous people, she is wrathful to the enemies of Surendhras, she is decked in spade, pasha and bow and arrows, she eradicates excess lust and passion in worshiper, she is auspicious, she is decked in Kapalamala, she is youthful with the complexion of precious yellow metal, she merrily resides in the funeral grounds, she is noble, she is worshiped by twice born/Bhramin, she eradicates the darkness of ignorance, she is Yamini who represents night, she is beloved of Lord Shiva, she has the radiance of thousands of Surya, she is surrounded by the beetle like worshipers, she is unblemished, she is dreadful in the battle field, she has pleasing disposition too, she is the source of living beings and she is the protector of them, I shall reverentially prostrate before the Mother of living beings, she is  personified as Sathi, she is the safest heaven of people who sincerely follow their duties and  responsibilities, she is Parvathi who is beloved sister of Hari, she is eternal, she is powerful, she is attractive, she is the provider of Yashas/fame, Arththa/desires, Bhukthi/devotion and Mukthi/liberation, she is repeatedly incarnates after each Yuga, I shall prostrate before supreme Goddess who is worshiped by Suras, she is Jayehvari who symbolizes victory, she has three eyes, Oh! Devi, kindly protect us, veneration of Goddess Kalika provides success, auspiciousness and ultimately liberation from repeated births, what would I do without your auspicious grace? We are completely worn out of excessive worldly desires, kindly shower your permanent grace that could liberate us from repeated births, whoever reads or listens to these sacred verses with utmost faith would attain the grace of Goddess Kalika.
