Maha Kali Chalisa : महाकाली चालीसा

।।  चौपाई  ।।

जयकाली कलिमलहरण, महिमा अगम अपार ।
महिष मर्दिनी कालिका , देहु अभय अपार ॥

अरि मद मान मिटावन हारी । मुण्डमाल गल सोहत प्यारी ॥
अष्टभुजी सुखदायक माता । दुष्टदलन जग में विख्याता ॥

भाल विशाल मुकुट छवि छाजै । कर में शीश शत्रु का साजै ॥
दूजे हाथ लिए मधु प्याला । हाथ तीसरे सोहत भाला ॥

चौथे खप्पर खड्ग कर पांचे । छठे त्रिशूल शत्रु बल जांचे ॥
सप्तम करदमकत असि प्यारी । शोभा अद्भुत मात तुम्हारी ॥

अष्टम कर भक्तन वर दाता । जग मनहरण रूप ये माता ॥
भक्तन में अनुरक्त भवानी । निशदिन रटें ॠषी-मुनि ज्ञानी ॥

महशक्ति अति प्रबल पुनीता । तू ही काली तू ही सीता ॥
पतित तारिणी हे जग पालक । कल्याणी पापी कुल घालक ॥

शेष सुरेश न पावत पारा । गौरी रूप धर्यो इक बारा ॥
तुम समान दाता नहिं दूजा । विधिवत करें भक्तजन पूजा ॥

रूप भयंकर जब तुम धारा । दुष्टदलन कीन्हेहु संहारा ॥
नाम अनेकन मात तुम्हारे । भक्तजनों के संकट टारे ॥

कलि के कष्ट कलेशन हरनी । भव भय मोचन मंगल करनी ॥
महिमा अगम वेद यश गावैं । नारद शारद पार न पावैं ॥

भू पर भार बढ्यौ जब भारी । तब तब तुम प्रकटीं महतारी ॥
आदि अनादि अभय वरदाता । विश्वविदित भव संकट त्राता ॥

कुसमय नाम तुम्हारौ लीन्हा । उसको सदा अभय वर दीन्हा ॥
ध्यान धरें श्रुति शेष सुरेशा । काल रूप लखि तुमरो भेषा ॥

कलुआ भैंरों संग तुम्हारे । अरि हित रूप भयानक धारे ॥
सेवक लांगुर रहत अगारी । चौसठ जोगन आज्ञाकारी ॥

त्रेता में रघुवर हित आई । दशकंधर की सैन नसाई ॥
खेला रण का खेल निराला । भरा मांस-मज्जा से प्याला ॥

रौद्र रूप लखि दानव भागे । कियौ गवन भवन निज त्यागे ॥
तब ऐसौ तामस चढ़ आयो । स्वजन विजन को भेद भुलायो ॥

ये बालक लखि शंकर आए । राह रोक चरनन में धाए ॥
तब मुख जीभ निकर जो आई । यही रूप प्रचलित है माई ॥

बाढ्यो महिषासुर मद भारी । पीड़ित किए सकल नर-नारी ॥
करूण पुकार सुनी भक्तन की । पीर मिटावन हित जन-जन की ॥

तब प्रगटी निज सैन समेता । नाम पड़ा मां महिष विजेता ॥
शुंभ निशुंभ हने छन माहीं । तुम सम जग दूसर कोउ नाहीं ॥

मान मथनहारी खल दल के । सदा सहायक भक्त विकल के ॥
दीन विहीन करैं नित सेवा । पावैं मनवांछित फल मेवा ॥

संकट में जो सुमिरन करहीं । उनके कष्ट मातु तुम हरहीं ॥
प्रेम सहित जो कीरति गावैं । भव बन्धन सों मुक्ती पावैं ॥

काली चालीसा जो पढ़हीं । स्वर्गलोक बिनु बंधन चढ़हीं ॥
दया दृष्टि हेरौ जगदम्बा । केहि कारण मां कियौ विलम्बा ॥

करहु मातु भक्तन रखवाली । जयति जयति काली कंकाली ॥
सेवक दीन अनाथ अनारी । भक्तिभाव युति शरण तुम्हारी ॥

॥  दोहा  ॥

प्रेम सहित जो करे, काली चालीसा पाठ ।
तिनकी पूरन कामना, होय सकल जग ठाठ ॥

Kaali Maa

Maha Kali Chalisa : महाकाली चालीसा In English

Jay Kaali Kalimalaharan, Mahima Agam Apaar,
Mahish Mardini Kaalika, Dehu Abhay Apaar.

Ari Mad Maan Mitaavan Haari, Mundamaal Gal Sohat Pyaari.
Ashtabhuji Sukhdaayak Maata, Dushtdalan Jag Me Vikhyaata.

Bhaal Vishaal Mukut Chhavi Chhajei, Kar Me Shish Shatru Ka Saajei.
Dooje Haath Liye Madhu Pyaala, Haath Tiisare Sohat Bhaala.

Chauthe Khappar Khadag Kar Paanche, Chhathe Trishul Shatru Bal Jaanche.
Saptam Kar Damakat Asi Pyaari, Shobha Adbhut Maat Tumhaari.

Ashtam Kar Bhaktan Var Data, Jag Manharan Roop Ye Maata.
Bhaktan Me Anurakt Bhavaani, Nishdin Rate Rishi-Muni Gyaani.

Mahaashakti Ati Prabal Punita, Tu Hi Kaali Tu Hi Sita.
Patit Taarini He Jag Paalak, Kalyaani Paapi Kul Ghaalak.

Shesh Suresh Na Paavat Paara, Gauri Roop Dharyo Ek Baara.
Tum Samaan Daata Nahi Dooja, Vidhivat Kare Bhaktajan Pooja.

Roop Bhayankar Jab Tum Dhaara, Dushtadalan Kinhehu Sanhaara.
Naam Anekan Maat Tumhaare, Bhaktajano Ke Sankat Taare.

Kali Ke Kasht Kaleshan Harani, Bhav Bhay Mochan Mangal Karani.
Mahima Agam Ved Yash Gaavei, Naarad Shaarad Paar Na Paavei.

Bhoo Par Bhaar Badhyau Jab Bhaari, Tab Tab Tum Prakati Mahtaari.
Aadi Anaadi Abhay Varadaata, Vishvavidit Bhav Sankat Traata.

Kusamay Naam Tumhaarau Linha, Usako Sada Abhay Var Dinha.
Dhyaan Dhare Shruti Shesh Suresha, Kaal Roop Lakhi Tumaro Bhesha.

Kaluaa Bhairo Sang Tumhaare, Ari Hit Roop Bhayaanak Dhaare.
Sevak Laangur Rahat Agaari, Chauisath Jogan Agyaakaari.

Treta Mein Raghuvar Hit Aai, Dashkandhar Ki Sain Nasaai.
Khela Ran Ka Khel Niraala, Bhara Maans-Majja Se Pyaala.

Raudra Roop Lakhi Daanav Bhaage, Kiyau Gavan Bhavan Nij Tyaage.
Tab Esau Taamas Chadh Aayo, Svajan Vijan Ko Bhed Bhulaayo.

Ye Baalak Lakhi Shankar Aaye, Raah Rok Charanan Me Dhaaye.
Tab Mukh Jibh Nikar Jo Aai, Yahi Roop Prachalit Hai Maai.

Baadhyo Mahishaasur Mad Bhaari, Pidit Kiye Sakal Nar-Naari.
Karun Pukaar Suni Bhaktan Ki, Peer Mitaavan Hit Jan-Jan Ki.

Tab Pragati Nij Sain Sameta, Naam Pada Maa Mahish Vijeta.
Shumbh Nishumbh Hane Chhan Maahi, Tum Sam Jag Doosar Kou Naahi.

Maan Mathanhaari Khal Dal Ke, Sada Sahaayak Bhakt Vikal Ke.
Deen Vihin Karei Nit Seva, Paavei Manvaanchhit Phal Meva.

Sankat Me Jo Sumiran Karahi, Unake Kasht Maaatu Tum Harahi.
Prem Sahit Jo Kirati Gaavei, Bhav Bandhan So Mukti Paavei.

Kaali Chaalisa Jo Padhahi, Svarglok Binu Bandhan Chadhahi.
Daya Drishti Herau Jagadamba, Kehi Kaaran Maa Kiyau Vilamba.

Karahu Maatu Bhaktan Rakhvaali, Jayati Jayati Kaali Kankaali.
Sevak Deen Anaath Anaari, Bhaktibhaav Yuti Sharan Tumhaari.

|| Doha ||

Prem Sahit Jo Kare, Kaali Chaalisa Paath,
Tinaki Pooran Kaamana, Hoy Sakal Jag Thaath.
