Glory, glory, all glory to you, O Mother Saraswati; you are renowned throughout the three spheres as the treasure-house of all great noble virtues. Let all sing to the glory of your name!

SOHE SHUBHA HANSA SAWARI ATULA TEJADHARI
O infinitely radiant Goddess, you are beautiful and bright as the moon and are seated in lotus posture; you are lustrous in appearance and source of all blessings; your vehicle, the auspicious swan, looks elegant.
BAAYE KAR MAY VEENAA, DAAYE KAR MAALAA
SHEESH MUKUTA MANI SOHEY, GAL MOTIYANA MAALAA
In your left hand, O Mother Saraswati, is the lute (Veena) and in the right a wreath; on your head lies a splendid tiara of gems and around your neck a string of pearls.
DEVI SHARANA JO AAYEE, UNAKAA UDDHAARAM KIYAA
PAITHI MANTHARAA DAASI, RAAVANA SANHAARA KIYAA
O Goddess, whosoever sought refuge in you was released from the cycle of birth and death. By changing the mind of Kaikayee’s dull-witted handmaid, Manthara, you became instrumental in the destruction of Ravana.

O bestower of learning and skill, illumine the world with light of knowledge and dispel the darkness of ignorance and infatuation.

O Mother, pray accept my gift of incense, light, both green and dry fruits and provide the world with eyes of knowledge carry it across the ocean of this extraordinary world.
