Oh, great goddess, I commit thousands of offenses routinely, So please think me as your slave, “this is my servant”  having thought this, please forgive all my mistakes.

Oh, great goddess, I do not how to invoke you, nor do I know how to send you back after the worship,
And I also do not know how to worship you,  please forgive all my mistakes.

I do not know your chants to please you or any holy actions (kriya-karmakand) or devotion, Oh Goddess of the devas, and so whatever worship I do, please make it complete.

If one calls you, “Mother of the universe” and commits a hundred mistakes,
Still, you give him salvation, which cannot be done by Bhramha and other devas.

Oh, my great goddess having committed several mistakes I seek your refuge,
And please decide on the fate of this shivering one according to your wishes.

Oh Goddess of love, Oh mother of the universe, Oh source of the eternal happiness,
Please accept my prayers and with love become pleased with me.

Oh goddess who guards the secret of secret things in the universe, Please accept the chanting done by  me, and make me powerful, through your grace, Oh Goddess (Parameswari).
