"She emerges from the great void
crowned with the crescent moon
face radiant as the full moon
adorned in robes of blue hue.
That Blue One holding a lotus
with a corpse as her seat
is praised by Sharva [Shiva] and the other gods.
She holds a conch shell, sword, goad, and noose
flute, club, sharp blade, and knife.
I praise Bahdrakali
with the seed mantra bhaim."
