न मत्रं नो यन्त्रं तदपि च न जाने स्तुतिमहो
न चाह्वानं ध्यानं तदपि च न जाने स्तुतिकथाः ।
न जाने मुद्रास्ते तदपि च न जाने विलपनं
परं जाने मातस्त्वदनुसरणं क्लेशहरणम् ॥१॥

O Mother, I know neither your mantra nor yantra, nor how to invoke you or how to meditate on you. I do not know your story or your glory or your various postures, and I am not given to weeping in distress. But one thing I know for certain is that seeking shelter under your protection, and following your order, is definitely going to end all afflictions.
