#1 Lyrics+Translation: Amba Kamakshi (Yadukula Kambhoji)

Post by satishsatish » 14 Jun 2012, 04:13

Could someone please post the lyrics+translation for the Syama Sastri swarajathi Amba Kamakshi in Yadukula Kambhoji ragam?
Please note this is not the more popular/famous version of two other swarajathis also Amba Kamakshi in Todi or Bhairavi ragams and composed by none other than Syama Sastri...:-)

Thank you in advance for your help!

Thank you once again, Lakshman. Little did I know that the song I thought was called "Amba Kamakshi" (and the CD cover educated me so) actually goes by another name...
I'd be thrilled if someone could post a translation for this wonderful song...

Here is the meaning (from Vidya Shankar's book).

P: Kamakshi! in your pair of lotus feet, steadfastly I believe! Do dispel all my anxieties
C1: mother, protect me (mother of the universe, protect me) this is the time; hear me; you are the redeemer of the fallen
2: daily, I, your son, seek refuge in you; merciful one!
3: one whose feet are honoured by Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva! have you a quarrel with me?
4: one whose eyes are comparable to the lotus petals! one whose braid shames the cloud!
5: one whose face matches the lustre of the moon!
6: honourable one! hearing the good fame that you are the deity granting the fruits to all who ever meditate on you, I seek refuge in you alone
7: purifier! beloved Shiva! Parvati! mother of all! drive away sins quickly; grant me favour
8: resident of the golden mount! that you lavish prosperity on people who seek you, the vedas proclaim, my plaints, do hear, hear, hear
9: one whose feet are like tender shoots! I can’t bear a minute longer, elephant gaited
delay not; protect me now; supreme being!
10: one whose teeth are like jasmine buds! one whose feet are sought by the celestials; in this world, are you not the bestower of grace? do not my plaints reach your ears? daughter of the mountain!
Are you not the great benefactor in this world? your lotus feet guide crossing the ocean of existence – of this I Am convinced
11: can Brahma, gods and sages extol you sufficiently? grant me goodness, I have faith in you; Shyamakrishna sodari! speedily shower kindness on me
