ॐ ऐं ह्लीं क्लिं चामुण्डायै विच्चै
एकवेणी जपाकर्णपूरा नग्न खरास्थिता
लम्बोष्ठी कर्णिकाकर्णी तैलाभ्यक्तशरीरिणी
वर्धनमूर्ध्वजा कृष्णा कालरात्रिर्भयंकरी
Translation: May the Bhayankari Maa Durga who is with long lips, riding a donkey, shining in various hues, looks formidable because of the halo of Devi’s lustre and is adorned with multi coloured ornaments, remove my darkness of ignorance.
