I sight Her through my self
I sing Her with my heart
I know Her with my mind
I repeatedly chant Her in my thoughts.
Into Kanakadurga, the very embodiment of bliss,
Do I sink, submerging my false sense of self and identity.
I meditate upon the goddess hoping to augment her favour
I pray to Mahadevi, Tripura Sundari, Sarada Sivakameswari,
whose gaze makes all calm – She offers unassailable, undivided loyalty.
I bow to Bhavani, Sri,
Her body a streak of lightning,
her face ablaze with a cavernous smile.
She resides on Indra Kiladri, on the banks of the Krishna river.
Indrani, entwined around Shiva’s heart like a creeper,
the beloved of Lord Malleswara, Eternally pure, our lady of Vijayawatika.
Goddess Kanadurga is the presiding deity of Vijayawada,
situated on the banks of river Krishna in Andhra Pradesh.
Malleswara is Lord Siva, the beloved consort of goddess Kanakadurga.
