उद्यद्भानुसहस्रकोटिसदृशां केयूरहारोज्ज्वलां
विम्बोष्ठीं स्मितदन्तपङ्क्तिरुचिरां पीताम्बरालङ्कृताम् 
विष्णुब्रह्मसुरेन्द्रसेवितपदां तत्त्वस्वरूपां शिवां
मीनाक्षीं प्रणतोऽस्मि सन्ततमहं कारुण्यवारांनिधिम् ॥१॥

I always bow before that Meenakshi, who is the treasure house of mercy,
Who shines like billions of rising suns,
Who wears a shining crown,
Who has reddish lips like the Bimba fruits,
Who has shining rows of sparkling teeth,
Who decorates herself with reddish silk,
Whose feet is worshiped by Vishnu, Brahma and Indra,
Who is the consort Of Lord Shiva,
And who is the personification of sacred truth.

मुक्ताहारलसत्किरीटरुचिरां पूर्णेन्दुवक्त्रप्रभां
शिञ्जन्नूपुरकिङ्किणीमणिधरां पद्मप्रभाभासुराम् 
सर्वाभीष्टफलप्रदां गिरिसुतां वाणीरमासेवितां 
मीनाक्षीं प्रणतोऽस्मि सन्ततमहं कारुण्यवारांनिधिम् ॥२॥

I always bow before that Meenakshi, who is the treasure house of mercy,
Who shines in a crown decorated by garland of pearls,
Whose face shines similar to the full moon,
Who wears tinkling anklets full of gems,
Who shines like a fully opened lotus,
Who blesses her devotees with all their wishes,
Who is the daughter of the mountain,
And who is served by Goddess Saraswathi and Lakshmi.

श्रीविद्यां शिववामभागनिलयां ह्रीङ्कारमन्त्रोज्ज्वलां
श्रीचक्राङ्कितबिन्दुमध्यवसतिं श्रीमत्सभानायिकाम् 
श्रीमत्षण्मुखविघ्नराजजननीं श्रीमज्जगन्मोहिनीं 
मीनाक्षीं प्रणतोऽस्मि सन्ततमहं कारुण्यवारांनिधिम् ॥३॥

I always bow before that Meenakshi, who is the treasure house of mercy,
Who is the sacred knowledge of Sri Vidhya,
Who dwells in the left side of Lord Shiva,
Who shines with the sacred sound “Hreem”,
Who is in the central dot of the holy design of Sri Chakra,
Who is the lady presiding over the court of Lord Shiva,
Who is the mother of Lord Subramnya and Ganesa,
And who is the enchanter of the universe.

श्रीमत्सुन्दरनायिकां भयहरां ज्ञानप्रदां निर्मलां
श्यामाभां कमलासनार्चितपदां नारायणस्यानुजाम् 
वीणावेणुमृदङ्गवाद्यरसिकां नानाविधामम्बिकां 
मीनाक्षीं प्रणतोऽस्मि सन्ततमहं कारुण्यवारांनिधिम् ॥४॥

I always bow before that Meenakshi, who is the treasure house of mercy,
Who is the consort of Lord Sundaresa,
Who removes fears,
Who grants knowledge,
Who is purest of the pure,
Who is black in colour,
Whose feel are worshiped by lotus flowers,
Who is the sister of Lord Narayana,
Who enjoys music from Veena, drum and flute,
And who is the goddess of varied aspects.

नानायोगिमुनीन्द्रहृत्सुवसतिं नानार्थसिद्धिप्रदां
नानापुष्पविराजिताङ्घ्रियुगलां नारायणेनार्चिताम् 
नादब्रह्ममयीं परात्परतरां नानार्थतत्त्वात्मिकां 
मीनाक्षीं प्रणतोऽस्मि सन्ततमहं कारुण्यवारांनिधिम् ॥५॥

I always bow before that Meenakshi, who is the treasure house of mercy,
Who stays in the hearts of different yogis and saints,
Who grants different wealth and occult powers,
Whose feet shine with various flowers,
Who is wworshipedby Lord Narayana,
Who is the all pervasive sound of the holy spirit,
Who is greater than the great,
And who is the meaning of various philosophies.
