"Graciously bestow upon all men felicity, the summit of which is the knowledge of the Gods." [Julian, Oration to the Mother of the Gods]

Saraswati Mantras

One of the Hindu blogs I follow is called, simply enough, Hindu Blog, and they have posted links to three free mp3 files with recordings of Saraswati Mantras. Below are the three mantras – if you click on the name of the mantra it will take you to the “rapidshare” free download for the mp3.


1. Saraswati Mahabhadra, Mahamaya Varaprada ;
Shriprada Padmanilaya, Padmakshi Padmavaktraga
Shivanuja Pustakadhrit, Naana mudra Ramapara
Kaamarupa Mahavidya, Mahapataka Nashini.

[I’m learner to Your Holy names yet, So kindly forget my errors all over
Maa, I don’t have special knowledge to worship You
But I know You just need purity’n that’s all.]

2. Mahashraya Malini cha, Mahabhoga Mahabhuja
Mahabhaga Mahosaha, Divyanga Survandita ;
Mahakhali Mahapasha, Mahakara Mahankusha
Sitacha Vimala Vishwa, Vidyunmala cha vaishnavi.

[Maa, I have no idea how to meditate on you,
But I know You just need purity’, that’s all.]

3. Chandrika Chandra vadana, Chandralekha Vibhushita,
Savitri Sursa Devi, Divya-Lankaarbhushita.
Vaagdevi Vasudha Tivra, Mahabhadra Mahabala ;

[Maa, I don’t know how to render service,
But I know You just need purity’n that’s all.]


4. Jatila Vindhyavasa cha, Vindyachal Virajita
Chandika Vaishnavi Brahmi, Brahmagyane Kasadhana
Saudhamini Sudhamurti, Subhadra Surpujita,
Suvasini Sunasa cha, Vinidra Padmalochana.

[Maa, I don’t know what is the complete devotion.
But I know you just need purity’n that all.]


5. Vidyarupa Vishalakshi, Brahma jaya Mahabala
Brahmjaya Mahabala, Treyimurti Trikaalagnya
Triguna shastra rupini Shumbrasura Pramathini.
Shubrada cha Sarvaatmika, Raktabija Nihantiri cha
Chamunda chandika Tatha

6. Mund kaya praharna, Dhumralochna-mardana
Sarvadeva-s-stuta, Saumya Surasura Namaskrita

7. Chitrambara Chitragandha, Chitramalya Vibhushita

8. Hansaasna Neeljangha, Brahma Vishnu Shivatmika
Aivum Saraswati Devya, Namnam Ashtottara Shastam
Sakshat Shri Adi Shakti Mataji, Shri Nirmala Devi Namoh Namaha

Om Vaakdeviyai cha Vidhmahe
Virinji Pathniyai cha Dheemahe
Thanno Vani Prachodayath.


Om, Let me meditate on the goddess of speech,
Oh, wife of Lord Brahma, give me higher intellect,
And let Goddess Vani illuminate my mind.

Yaa Kundendu tushaara haara-dhavalaa,
Yaa shubhra-vastra’avritha
Yaa veena-vara-danda-manditakara,
Yaa shwetha padma’asana
Yaa brahma’achyutha shankara prabhritibhir Devai-sadaa Vanditha
Saa Maam Paatu Saraswati Bhagavatee Nihshesha jaadyaa-pahaa

. . . . . .

Sanskrit / संस्कृत:

या कुंदेंदु तुषारहार धवला, या शुभ्र वस्त्रावृता |

या वीणावर दण्डमंडितकरा, या श्वेतपद्मासना ||

या ब्रह्माच्युतशंकरप्रभ्रृतिभिर्देवै: सदा वन्दिता |

सा मां पातु सरस्वती भगवती नि:शेष जाड्यापहा ||
