या देवी सर्वभूतेषु सृष्टि रूपेण संस्थिता

नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै  नमस्तस्यै नमो नमः

करपद्माभ्यामक्षालाकमण्डलु देवी

प्रसीदातु मई ब्रह्मचारिण्यनुत्तमा  

Translation: May the supreme Brahmachari Durga, who holds the rosary and kamandalu in her lotus hands and whose nature is to attain Sachchidanandamaya Brahmaswarupa – the Existence-Knowledge-Bliss absolute, be propitious on me.
