Invocations to the Three Shaktis

Copyright Len Rosenberg (Kalipadma)

saraswati_2.jpg
Saraswati

 
I invoke the white goddess Saraswati, Consort of Brahma the Creator. 
 
She who rides the swan, who bears lute, rosary, and palm-leaf book. 
 
Oh, Jnana Shakti (the Power to Know), garlanded with letters of Poetry! 
 
Grant me wisdom, success in competition, and inspiration in the arts and sciences. 
Mother of Memory, I offer you the ringing of bells, and the brightness of lamplight. 
 
Come, dwell forever on the tip of my tongue.
           
 
OM  AIM  SARASVATYAI  NAMAHA!
           
My obeisances to the Ever-flowing Maiden!

Lakshmi

 
I invoke the red goddess Lakshmi, Consort of Vishnu the Preserver. 
 
She who rides the owl, who bears lotuses, treasure vase, and gestures to grant boons and remove fear. 
 
Oh, Kriya Shakti (the Power to Act), garlanded with blossoms of Nature! 
 
Grant me serenity, abundance, and luck in the achievement of material blessings. 
Mother of Satisfaction, I offer you the caress of flower petals, and the savor of sweet fruit. 
 
Come, dance eternally in the temple of my heart.
           
OM SHRIM LAKSHMYAI NAMAHA!
           
My obeisances to the Birth-giver of true Wealth!

Kali

 
I invoke the black goddess Kali, Consort of Shiva the Destroyer. 
 
She who dances on corpses, who bears a bloody sword, a demon's head, and gestures to remove fear and grant boons. 
 
Oh, Iccha Shakti (the Power to Desire), garlanded with skulls of Eternity! 
 
Grant me courage, your protection, and release me from all that is not divine.
Mother of Transformation, I offer you the fragrance of musk incense, and the heady exaltation of wine. 
 
Come, arise in laughter through the vortexes along my spine.
           
OM KRIM KALIKAYAI NAMAHA!
           
My obeisances to the Timeless Dark Dancer!

OM GAM Ganapatiye Namaha! OM DUM Durgaye Namaha!
