Prayer to the Divine Mother Bhavani

Oh Divine Mother!




Father, mother, husband, wife, children or friends
None of them belongs to me eternally.
Knowledge, intellect, mind and will power are not eternal.
Oh Mother of the Universe – You are my only  Saviour, my eternal shelter.

I have fallen in the ocean of birth and death, and I fear their sorrows.
I am trapped by my ego with its countless desires, greed, pride and lust.
O Mother of the universe – You are my only saviour, my eternal refuge.

O Mother of the universe – I do not know how to come close to you.




I do not know any form of worship. Help me,
O Mother Divine – You are my only saviour, my eternal refuge.

I do not know how to be righteous or find your abode.




I do not know how to achieve freedom by dissolving my ego.
I am devoid and surrender. I am not strong enough to make any vow.
O Mother of the universe- You are my saviour, my eternal refuge

My mind is always engaged in worthless thoughts and actions.




My Intellect has become dull, enslaved by old habits.
I am unable to behave honourably and my intentions are unique.
My speech becomes harsh and hurting. Save me,
O Mother of the universe – You are my only saviour, my eternal refuge

I do not Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, Indra, Surya and Chandra,




or any other divinities.
You are known for your compassion-
O Mother of the universe - You are my only saviour, my eternal refuge

O compassionate Mother, protect me wherever I am




and with whomever I am with in pleasure and in distress.
O Mother of the universe – You are my only saviour, my eternal refuge

O Mother, I feel like an orphan on this Earth,




powerless and without inner wealth, deluded by ignorance
and unable to see the light of truth.
O Mother of the universe – You are my only saviour, my eternal refuge

by Jai Maa Bhavani
