Tripura sundari Ashtakam




Tripura Sundari Ashtakam
The octet to the beauty of the three worlds
Translated By
P.R.Ramachander
Kadamba vana charinim, muni kadamba kaadambhineem,
Nidhambha jita bhootharam, Sura nithambhini sevitham,
Naavamburuha lochanam, abhi navambhudha syamalam,
Trilochana Kudimbhineem , Tripura Sundarim Aasraye.
(I prostrate before her, who is the beauty of the Tripura,
Who roams in the forest of Kadamba.
Who is like the galaxy of dark clouds,
Which quenches spiritual thirst of sages,
Who with a hip rivaling mountains,
Is being served by celestial beauties,
Who has eyes resembling a lotus flower,
Who is a black rivaling the rich black clouds,
And who belongs to the three-eyed family. )
Kadamba vana vasinim , kanaka vallaki dharinim,
Maharha mani harinim, mukasa mulla sad varunim,
Daya vibhava karinim vichatha lochamim, charinim,
Trilochana Kudimbhineem , Tripura Sundarim Aasraye.
(I prostrate before her, who is the beauty of the Tripura,
Who lives in the forest of Kadamba,
Who holds a golden holy Veena,
Who wears a divine garland of gems,
Whose face shines of joy because of nectar,
Whose mercy bestows wealth,
Who wanders clear eyed everywhere,
And who belongs to the three-eyed family. )
Kadamba vana shalaya, Kucha prollasan malaya,
Kuchopamitha shailaya Guru krupala sad velaya,
Madaruna kapolaya Madhura geetha vaachalaya,
Trilochana Kudimbhineem , Tripura Sundarim Aasraye.
(I prostrate before her, who is the beauty of the Tripura,
Whose house is the forest of Kadamba,
Who wears a garland gracing her bosom,
Who has a bosom like mountains,
Who lets flow her mercy as a torrent,
Who has red cheeks like wine,
Who sings soulful music,
And who belongs to the three-eyed family. )
Kadambha vana madhyakam, kanaka mandalopa sthitham,
Shadamburuha vasinim, sathathasidha saudaminim,
Vidambhitha japa raruchim vikasa chandra choodamanim,
Trilochana Kudimbhineem , Tripura Sundarim Aasraye.
(I prostrate before her, who is the beauty of the Tripura,
Who is in the middle of Kadamba forest,
Who is seated near golden planet,
Who lives in six lotus flowers,
Who illuminates the sages like lightning,
Who mocks at the just open Hibiscus,
Who wears the moon as a crest jewel,
And who belongs to the three-eyed family.)
Kuchanchitha vipanchikam, kutila kuntala alangrutham,
Kusheshaya nivasinim, kutila siddha vidhweshaneem,
Madaaruna vilochanam, manasi jari sammohinim,
Mathanga muni kanyakam madura bashinim Aasraye
(I prostrate before her, who is the beauty of the Tripura,
Who carries a Veena over her bosom,
Who resides in a lotus,
Who scorns evil minded sages,
Whose eyes are red due to intoxication,
Who attracts the enemy of the cupid,
Who is the daughter of sage Matanga,
And speaks in a sweet voice.)
Smareth prathama pushpineem rudhira bindu neelambaram,
Graheetha madhu patrikam, madhu vighurna nethanchalaam,
Gahna sthana paronnatham galistha chulikam syamalam,
Trilochana Kudimbhineem , Tripura Sundarim Aasraye.
(I prostrate before her, who is the beauty of the Tripura,
Who carries the first flower of cupid,
Who wears the blue garment spotted with blood,
Who holds in her hand, a bowl of wine,
Whose eyes are confused due to intoxication,
Whose close chest is elevated by her firm breasts,
Whose hair is disheveled,
Who is pretty in her black colour,
And who belongs to the three-eyed family.)
Sa kumkuma vilepanaam, alaka chumbi kasthoorikaam,
Samatha hasithekshanam, sachara chapa pasanguram,
Asesha jana mohinim, aruna malya bhooshambaram,
Japa kusuma basuram, japa vidhow smaradembikaam.
(I meditate on that Ambika,
Who applies saffron on her body,
Who applies musk attracted by bees on her hair,
Who has a beautiful smile,
Who has with her bows, arrows and Pasangusa,
Who attracts all the souls,
Who wears red garland,
Who wears ornaments great,
And who is of the colour of the red hibiscus,
During my japa routine.)
Purandara purandarikam,chikura bandha sairandrikam,
Pitamaha pathivrathampata pateera charcharatham,
Mukunda ramanimanilasathalankriya karinim,
Bajami bhuvanambikamsura vadhutika chetikam.
I pray to that Ambika,
Who is the mother of the entire universe,
Who has heavenly damsels as servants,
Who rules over Sripura,
Who has celestial maids to tie her hair,
Who is anointed by sandal paste,
By the virtuous wife of Brhama,
Who is adorned by the rare gems,
Of the darling of Lord Vishnu.
