the Daughter of the Mountain

the Daughter of the Mountain


अयि गिरिनन्दिनि नन्दितमेदिनि विश्वविनोदिनि नन्द्नुते 
गिरिवर्विन्ध्यषिरोधिनिवासिनि विष्णुविलासिनि जिष्णुनुते 
भगवति हे शितिकण्डकुटुम्बिनी भूरि कुटुंबिनि भूरि कृते 
जय जय हे महिशासुरमर्द्दिनि रम्य कपर्दिनि शैलसुते 
ayi giri nandini nandita medhini vishvavinodhin nandanutey
girivaravindhyashirodhinivaasini vishnuvilaasini jishnunutey
bagavathi hey shitikandakutumbini bhoorikutumbini bhoorikritey
jaya jaya hey mahishaasuramardhini ramyakapardini shailasuthey..

You, the Daughter of the Mountain(Himavaan) 
You who fill the whole earth with happiness 
You who entertain the whole universe,
You the darling of Nandagopa,
You who occupies the peak of that lord of mountains, Vindhya, 
You who bring supreme pleasure to Vishnu, 
You who is worshiped by all those who seek victory, 
You the most resplendent one, the consort of Lord Shitikanda, the Shankara,
You who are having a huge family, 
You the performer of great deeds

Victory to you the slayer of Mahishaasura , 
Victory to you the dearest of Shiva,
Victory to you the darling daughter of the mountain..

Pranams to the Divine mother
She is today seen everywhere, in the form of all deities going out to fight and vanquish the Mahisha..

(When the earth was having a hundred year famine, She manifested Herself as Shakambhari and brought joy to earth..
When Shumbha and Nishumba the nasty demons infested the earth, she manifested herself as Vindhyaachalanivaasini,, in the womb of Yashoda as the darling sister of Krishna, and killed the two demons.
We can see these described in Chapter 11 of Devi Mahatmyam.)
