Shakthi dhe maa, Shakthi dhe ma-A hindi bhajan addressed to the goddess Durga
(Give me strength mother, give me strength)
(I took this great prayer from http://hindigeetmala.net/song/shakti_de_maa_shakti_de_maa.htm . YOPu can also hear it sung in that url )
1.Shakthi dhe ma , Shakthi dhe ma , Shakthi dhe ma , Shakthi dhe ma ,
Pag pag tokar kavun , chal na pavun , Kaise aavoon main gar there.
1.Give me strength mother, give me strength, Give me strength mother, give me strength,
Each and every step I get hit and I am not able to travel , How do I come to your home.
2.Haath pakad le , Haath bada le , Apne mandhir thak pahuncha dhe ,
Sar par dukh ki raina , nahi chaina, pyase naina darasan ke.
2.Please hold my hand, please spread out your hand and make reach till your temple .
There is a streak of sorrow on my head , there is no peace and I am thirsty to see you.
3.Jag mein jiska naam hain jeevan, yik yug hain sangram hain jeevan,
THera naam pukaraa, dukh ka maaraa, haara ma yis jeevan se
3.What is called “life” in this world is an eon and this life is a battle ,
And when I called your name , I destroyed the “sorrow” and I was defeated by this “life”
4.There Dware job hi aayaa , Usne jo maanga , vo paayaa ,
Main bhi thera savali , Shakthi Sali Sheren vaali ma jagadambhe.
4.When some one comes to youtr gate , Whatever he asked you gave him,
And I am only your shadow, Oh very strong mother driving on a tiger, Oh mother of the universe.
