// Goddess Shailputri Aarti: //
Shailputri Maa Bail Asvaar
Karein devta jai jai kaar
Shiv Shankar ki Priya Bhavani,
Teri Mhima Kisi ne na jani,
Parvati tu uma kehlave,
Jo tujhe simre so suck pave,
Ridhi Sidhi parvan kare tu,
Dya kare dhanvan kare tu,
Somvaar ko shiv sang pyari,
Aarti teri jisne utari
Uski sagri aas puja do,
Sagre dukh taklif mita do,
Ghee ka sundar deep jalake
Gola gari ka bhog laga ke
Shaddha bhav se mantra gaye,
Prem sahit phir sheesh jukhaye,
Jai giriraj kishori amb,
Shiv much Chandra chakori ambe,
Manokamna purna kar do,
sada such sampatti bhar do
