Source of all things, suffused with desire, sensuous queen, beloved of the destroyer of illusion, always give me what I desire, desirous supreme one, I adore you!

O Kamakhya, giver of blessings, Goddess who dwells in the blue mountain, O goddess, mother of the universe, who is the form of the yoni, I adore you!
