May Goddess Shri Sarasvati, the charming wife of Brahma the creator, protect me.
She who takes delight in the music played on the Murali flute and Vina, she who is of the form of awareness, she whose smile is bright like the beautiful moon, she whose eyes are like the lotus, she who pleases Vishnu the enemy of Mura, and Guruguha. She who is of the form of word and it sense, she who has the royal swan as her vehicle, she is the supreme spirit who has a ruddy complexion.
