Hey Bhavani! Father, mother, brother, benefactor, son, daughter, slave, master, woman, knowledge and attitude, none of these are mine, O Goddess! Only you are my speed, you are my speed..1.

I am lying in the vast Bhavsagar. I am afraid of great sorrow. Lustful, greedy, intoxicated and bound in disgusting worldly bonds. Hey Bhavani! Now only you are my speed, you are my speed.

O Goddess! I neither know how to donate nor do I have any knowledge of the path of meditation. I don't even have knowledge of Tantra and Stotra mantras. I am totally free from rituals like worship and trust etc. Now only you are my speed, you are my speed..3.

I know neither virtue nor pilgrimage, neither liberation nor rhythm. Oh mother! I don't even know devotion and fasting. Hey Bhavani! Now only you are my speed, you are my speed.4.

I am evil-doer, in bad company, unintelligent, wicked slave, lowly virtuous, misbehavior, evil-eyed and always speaking bad words. Hey Bhavani! You are the only speed of my badness, you are the speed.

I do not know Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh, Indra, Surya, Moon and any other deity. Oh Bhavani who gives refuge! Only you are my speed, you are my speed..6.

Hey refuge! You always protect me in the midst of controversy, depression, carelessness, foreign land, water, fire, mountain, forest and enemies. Hey Bhavani! Only you are my speed, you are my speed.7.

Hey Bhavani! I have always been an orphan, poor, senile, diseased, very weak, poor, dumb, afflicted and destroyed. Now you are my only speed, you are my speed..8.
