Shri Santoshi Maa Chalisa : श्री संतोषी माता चालीसा

|| दोहा ||

बन्दौं सन्तोषी चरण रिद्धि-सिद्धि दातार ।
ध्यान धरत ही होत नर दुःख सागर से पार ॥
भक्तन को सन्तोष दे सन्तोषी तव नाम ।
कृपा करहु जगदम्ब अब आया तेरे धाम ॥

|| चौपाई ||

जय सन्तोषी मात अनूपम । शान्ति दायिनी रूप मनोरम ॥
सुन्दर वरण चतुर्भुज रूपा । वेश मनोहर ललित अनुपा ॥

श्वेताम्बर रूप मनहारी । माँ तुम्हारी छवि जग से न्यारी ॥
दिव्य स्वरूपा आयत लोचन । दर्शन से हो संकट मोचन ॥

जय गणेश की सुता भवानी । रिद्धि-सिद्धि की पुत्री ज्ञानी ॥
अगम अगोचर तुम्हरी माया । सब पर करो कृपा की छाया ॥

नाम अनेक तुम्हारे माता । अखिल विश्व है तुमको ध्याता ॥
तुमने रूप अनेकों धारे । को कहि सके चरित्र तुम्हारे ॥

धाम अनेक कहाँ तक कहिये । सुमिरन तब करके सुख लहिये ॥
विन्ध्याचल में विन्ध्यवासिनी । कोटेश्वर सरस्वती सुहासिनी ॥

कलकत्ते में तू ही काली । दुष्ट नाशिनी महाकराली ॥
सम्बल पुर बहुचरा कहाती । भक्तजनों का दुःख मिटाती ॥

ज्वाला जी में ज्वाला देवी । पूजत नित्य भक्त जन सेवी ॥
नगर बम्बई की महारानी । महा लक्श्मी तुम कल्याणी ॥

मदुरा में मीनाक्शी तुम हो । सुख दुख सबकी साक्शी तुम हो ॥
राजनगर में तुम जगदम्बे । बनी भद्रकाली तुम अम्बे ॥

पावागढ़ में दुर्गा माता । अखिल विश्व तेरा यश गाता ॥
काशी पुराधीश्वरी माता । अन्नपूर्णा नाम सुहाता ॥

सर्वानन्द करो कल्याणी । तुम्हीं शारदा अमृत वाणी ॥
तुम्हरी महिमा जल में थल में । दुःख दारिद्र सब मेटो पल में ॥

जेते ऋषि और मुनीशा । नारद देव और देवेशा ।
इस जगती के नर और नारी । ध्यान धरत हैं मात तुम्हारी ॥

जापर कृपा तुम्हारी होती । वह पाता भक्ति का मोती ॥
दुःख दारिद्र संकट मिट जाता । ध्यान तुम्हारा जो जन ध्याता ॥

जो जन तुम्हरी महिमा गावै । ध्यान तुम्हारा कर सुख पावै ॥
जो मन राखे शुद्ध भावना । ताकी पूरण करो कामना ॥

कुमति निवारि सुमति की दात्री । जयति जयति माता जगधात्री ॥
शुक्रवार का दिवस सुहावन । जो व्रत करे तुम्हारा पावन ॥

गुड़ छोले का भोग लगावै । कथा तुम्हारी सुने सुनावै ॥
विधिवत पूजा करे तुम्हारी । फिर प्रसाद पावे शुभकारी ॥

शक्ति-सामरथ हो जो धनको । दान-दक्शिणा दे विप्रन को ॥
वे जगती के नर औ नारी । मनवांछित फल पावें भारी ॥

जो जन शरण तुम्हारी जावे । सो निश्चय भव से तर जावे ॥
तुम्हरो ध्यान कुमारी ध्यावे । निश्चय मनवांछित वर पावै ॥

सधवा पूजा करे तुम्हारी । अमर सुहागिन हो वह नारी ॥
विधवा धर के ध्यान तुम्हारा । भवसागर से उतरे पारा ॥

जयति जयति जय सन्कट हरणी । विघ्न विनाशन मंगल करनी ॥
हम पर संकट है अति भारी । वेगि खबर लो मात हमारी ॥

निशिदिन ध्यान तुम्हारो ध्याता । देह भक्ति वर हम को माता ॥
यह चालीसा जो नित गावे । सो भवसागर से तर जावे ॥

श्री गणपति पद नाय सिर, धरि हिय शारदा ध्यान.
सन्तोषी माँ की करुँ, कीरति सकल बखान.

|| चौपाई ||

जय संतोषी माँ जग जननी, खल मति दुष्ट दैत्य दल हननी.
गणपति देव तुम्हारे ताता, रिद्धि-सिद्धि कहलावहं माता.

मात-पिता की रहो दुलारी, कीरति केहि विधि कहूँ तुम्हारी.
क्रीट मुकुट सिर अनुपम भारी, कानन कुण्डल की छवि न्यारी.

सोहत अंग छटा छवि प्यारी, सुन्दर चीर सुन्हरी धारी.
आप चतुर्भुज सुघड़ विशाला, धारण करहु गले वन माला.

निकट है गौ अमित दुलारी, करहु मयूर आप असवारी.
जानत सबही आप प्रभुताई, सुर नर मुनि सब करहिं बढ़ाई.

तुम्हरे दरश करत क्षण माई, दुख दरिद्र सब जाय नसाई.
वेद पुराण रहे यश गाई, करहु भक्त का आप सहाई.

ब्रह्मा ढ़िंग सरस्वती कहाई, लक्ष्मी रुप विष्णु ढ़िंग आई.
शिव ढ़िंग गिरिजा रुप बिराजी, महिमा तीनों लोक में गाजी.

शक्ति रुप प्रकट जग जानी, रुद्र रुप भई मात भवानी.
दुष्ट दलन हित प्रकटी काली, जगमग ज्योति प्रचंड निराली.

चण्ड मुण्ड महिशासुर मारे, शुम्भ निशुम्भ असुर हनि डारे.
महिमा वेद पुरानन बरनी, निज भक्त के संकट हरनी.

प्रकटाई चहुंदिश निज माया, कण कण में है तेज समाया.

पृथ्वी सूर्य चन्द्र अरु तारे, तव इंगित क्रम बद्ध हैं सारे.
पालन पोषण तुम्ही करता, क्षण भंगुर में प्राण हरता.

बह्मा विष्णु तुम्हें निज ध्यावैं, शेश महेश सदा मन लावें.
मनोकामना पूरण करनी, पाप काटनी भव भय तरनी.

चित्त लगाय तुम्हें जो ध्याता, सो नर सुख सम्पत्ति है पाता.
बन्ध्या नारि तुमहिं जो ध्यावै, पुत्र पुष्प लता सम वह पावैं.

नारि सुहागिन व्रत जो करती, सुख सम्पत्ति सों गोद भरती.

जो सुमिरत जैसी मन भावा, सो नर वैसो फ़ल पावा.
सोलह शुक्र जो व्रत मन धारे, ताके पूर्ण मनोरथ सारे.

सेवा करहि भक्ति युक्त जोई, ताको दूर दरिद्र दुख होई.
जो जन शरण माता तेरी आवै, ताकै क्षण में काज बनावै.

जय जय जय अम्बे कल्याणी, कृपा करौ मोरी महारानी.
जो यह पढ़ै मात चालीसा, तापे करहिं कृपा जगदीशा.

निज प्रति पाठ करै इक बारा, सो नर रहै तुहारा प्यारा.
नाम लेत ब्याधा सब भागे, रोग दोश कबहूँ नही लागे.

|| दोहा ||

सन्तोषी माँ के सदा बन्दहुँ पग निश वास.
पुर्ण मनोरथ हों सकल मात हरौ भव त्रास.

Santoshi Mata

SANTOSHI Mata CHalisa Translation in English

Jai yug-yug ki Adi shakti, jag men prachalit hai nav bhakti
Adi, madhya aur avasana, teri gati vidhi koi na jana

Glory , all glory to you, O Primordial Power, worshipped in every age. Devotion to you is now a universal phenomenon. Without a beginning a middle and as you are, your movements and activities are mysterious and incomprehensible.

Nirmal shradha men khush hoti, thode men santusht ho jati
Kali men nam dharyo Santoshi, agni tulya pratyaksha-vishekhi

Selfless and unblemished regard shown to you pleases you most; a trifling faith in you is enough to satisfy you. Although you are bright as fire and visible, you are called Santoshi in this Kali age.

Kala, gyan, bal, vidya, datri,tum sam saral sukhadan hindhatri
Sakal charachar tum se chalte, bhut-pret yamdut sinharte

To you we owe the arts, knowledge, strength and learning for there is no foster-mother as simple and comforting as you; and to you owes everything, moving and unmoving, its existence; but you are a big terror to ghosts, fiends and Death’s messengers.

Dushta dalan sanhar karni,Mata tum Brahmanda dharini
Sarasvati Lakshmi aur Kali,amit shakti ki khan nirali

While you kill and destroy the wicked, you sustain and uphold the universe. As Saraswati, Lakshmi and Kali you are a mysterious and unique reservoir of immeasurable power.

Tumhare sharan gahe jo koi,mano kamana purna hoi
Tum Ganesh ki man kanya,tumse dharti ho gai dhanya

Whosoever seeks your protection, finds all his desires fulfilled. You are the virgin mother of Ganesha and it is you who made the earth a supremely favoured place.

Riddhi, siddhi, hai tumhari mata,mangalmai vardana ke data
Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh, Trimaya, us ka bat tujh men hai samaya

O Mother, you are the daughter of Riddhi and Siddhi, the two most munificent bestowers of propitious boons and embody the triple wisdom (extraordinary or supernatural power, shaktis or energies) of Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesha.

Sir par kanchan mukut suhata,sundar ratna sa muh dikhata
Madhur-manohar mukhda komal,pushpamal aur shyamal kuntal

On your head is a beautiful golden coronet studded with a cluster of splendid jewels; your soft, tender face possesses the beauty of mingled sweetness and charm aided by a beautiful wreath of flowers and a lock of black hair.

Alankar sohit hain ang mein,navya divya tan meru rang mein
Sundar vastra mein mala rakhti,darshak ke man vash mein karti

Your young divine body decked out with ornaments, looks elegant in its red ochre as does the wreath of your beautiful garments which bewitch the minds of all who behold them.

Ga trilakh da dhare do hatha chatur bhuji ko tekahu matha
Sanmukh amritbhari surahi,sath kamdhenu manchahi

Bow to the four-armed goddess who holds a lotus and a conch-shell in tow of her hands. In front of her is a flagon filled with nectar and beside her the much coveted cow of plenty.

Svarna kalash rahta hai age,bhakton ke saubhag ya ham jage
Tumhare bhaktibhav jo pave,ajar amar jag mein ho jave

Before you is kept a golden pitcher for blessing the devotees with good fortune. (The presence of the pitcher is a evidence of Santoshi’s readiness to bliss; the blessed urn is easily accessible for blessing whosoever wins her favour) O Mother, age does not wither him nor Death kill the person whom you bless with disinterested love and devotion.

Namo namo, jagtaran hari,dukh daridra taro mahtari
Shukravar din ati anukula,Santoshi vrata mangalmula

I bow to you again and again, O deliverer of the world and entreat you to be so good a mother as to relieve me of my penury and misery. Fridays are all favorable to you for the observance of Santoshi’s Vrata-the vow kept in honor of you; it is the root of all blessings.

Bahuvidhi mat ki puja kar,Santoshi kl katha shravan kar
Gud aur chana prasad chadhave, nirhar ek jun manave

Let the devotee worship the Mother in as many ways as possible and listen to the story of her miraculous acts; let him offer her jaggery and non-fried gram and forgo one meal.

Savadhan us din yah rakkhe, bhul se khatta deve na chakhe
Nahin to matu kupitu ho jati,bansh sahit santan nasati

He should be particularly careful not to offer nor taste anything sour. Failure to observe this rule so enrages the Mother that she, in her fury,destroys the family of the transgressor.

Shukravar solah vrat rakhe,udya pan-utsah se manave
Phir to ichchha puran hoi,matu kripa se der na hoi

Continuously for sixteen Fridays should the vrata be observed and with great pomp and ceremony must it close. If these instructions are followed, every desire of the devotee will be fulfilled without delay.

Adbhut devi chamatkarini,pal men chinta pidha harini
Ja par kripa matu ki hoi,jit sake na usko koi

Endowed with miraculous powers, the wonderful goddess relieves her votaries of their anxieties and sufferings in trice. Whosoever is blessed by the compassionate mother becomes invincible.

Dhanvivek sukhshanti pradayini,is yug ki navpran vidhayini
Tum sam devi kou nahin, dekh liya mein Tribhuvan mahin

She doles out wealth, knowledge, happiness and peace to her supplicants for she is the harbinger of a new awakening (renewed vitality) in this age. I am convinced that there is nine in the three spheres comparable to her in might and compassion.

Dukh ati pai bahu bichari,pati viyog ki vah dukhyari
Nariyal-khopar pikar pani, bhus ki roti khai abhagini
Santoshi ka vrat jo kinhin,pati sahit vaibhav pa linha

A poor helpless housewife, bereaved of her husband was extremely distraught and was so unlucky that she has a coconut shell from which she drank water and eased her hunger by eating bread made of husks and chaff. When she observed the vow consecrated to Santoshi, she was blessed with prosperity and her husband was restored to her.

Pida, chinta katahu marta, ashtsiddhi navanidhi ki data
Santoshi upvas kare jo, sukh sampati ka bhog kare vo

O Mother, you are the gracious donor of the eight accomplishments and nine treasures; I supplicate you to relieve me of my worries and sufferings. He who observes fast (as a ceremonial rite to please Santoshi) enjoys both wealth and happiness.

Vahan vahan sab thaur samai,tumhari mahima kahi na jai
Man vanchhit var pavai kvari, paye suhag sadhva sannari

Your glory, which permeates all space, beggars description. Maidens if chaste and devoted to you, get husbands of their choice and married women if faithful and virtuous receive the boon of lasting coverture.

Sukh dhan jan sab manokamna, purna hogi satya janana
Path sava sau karai jo koi,mitai kasht sukh-sampati hoi.

Consider it a indubitable truth (law, principle) that devotion to Santoshi leads to the fulfillment of all desires and yields happiness, prosperity and a large family. He who repeats this hymn a hundred and twenty-five times is relieved of all his afflictions and is blessed with great felicity and riches.

|| DOHA ||
Santoshi sankat haran,he chamatkar ki murti
Grah badha ko dur kar, karo kamna purti.

Santoshi, a veritable embodiment of miraculous feats, is the dispeller of all crises and obstructions caused by evil stars. I entreat her to fulfill my cherished hopes.
