Durga Aarti



Of all Hindu goddesses, it is perhaps the aarti (hymn) dedicated to goddess Durga that is most popular. The arti is sung to please Goddess Durga and calls out her various names. The Hindu devotees hail Maa Durga as the perfect embodiment of compassion and power, one who is worshipped even by the great trinity of Lord Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh. Goddess Durga, in her aarti, is praised for her immense beauty and for her resemblance to the stunning moon.

The lion or tiger, which happens to be Maa Durga's mount, is as majestic as the goddess herself. The Maa Durga arti hails the goddess as the divine feminine force by calling her the 'mother of the entire universe'. Mother Durga shields her devotees and relieves them of all their pains and afflictions. This divine arti of goddess Durga is sung in a melodious tune after most of the pujas in Hindu households.

Jai ambe Gauri maiya, jaa shyama Gauri
Nishdin tumko dhyaavat, hari brahma shivji,
Jai ambe Gauri....

Mang sinduur biraajat, tiko mrigmadko,
Ujjvalse dou naina, chandravadan niko,
Jai ambe Gauri....

Kanak saman kalevar, raktambar raje,
Raktapushp galmala, kanthhar saje,
Jai ambe Gauri....

Kehari vahan rajat, khadg khappar dhari
Sur nar munijan sevat, tinke dukhahari,
Jai ambe Gauri....

Kanan kundal shobhit, nasagre moti
Kotik chandra divakar, samrajat jyoti,
Jai ambe Gauri....

Shumbh- nishumbh vidare, mahishasur ghatia
Dhumra-vilochan naina, nishdin madmati
Jai ambe Gauri....

Brahmani, rudrani tum kamala rani,
Agam-nigam bakhani. Turn shiv patrani,
Jai ambe Gauri....

Chaunsath yogini gavat, nritya karat bhairon,
Bajat tab mridanga, aur bajat damru,
Jai ambe Gauri...

Tum ho jag ki mata, tum hi ho bharta,
Bhaktan ki dukh harta, sukh sampati karta,
Jai ambe Gauri....

Bhuja char ati shobhit, var mudra dhari,
Manvanchhit phal pavat, sevat nar nari,
Jai ambe Gauri....

Kanchan thal virajat, agaru kapur bati
Malketu men rajat, kotiratan jyoti,
Jai ambe Gauri....
