Translated by P. R. Ramachander

Goddess who is considered as sister of Lord Vishnu. The name means “She who is black”

Manikhya veenam upa laalayanthim,
Madalasam manjula vag vilasam,
Mahendra neela dyuthi komalangim,
Mathanga kanyaam manasa smarami.

I meditate on the daughter of sage Matanga,
Who plays on the jewel studded Veena,
Who is voluptuous and who speaks sweetest words,
Who is worshipped by Indra, the king of devas,
And who has perfectly pretty form.
