I am protected by Nilotpalambika, who bestows the eternal bliss, Nirvana Sukha.
She is worshiped by Guruguha and the lord of Valli. She is attended by Lakshmi and Sarasvati. She is delighted by the Hallisha Lasya dance, she whose hands are beautiful with reddish tinge.
She delights the devotees living in Kashi, Kannada and Gaula countries. She is saluted by Indra and others, and propitiated by Brahma and Vishnu. She is expounded upon in Shri Shivapurana, and is the spouse of Shiva.
