The fourth layer is the giver of auspiciousness. Though the process of Navavarana and the rituals and significance is the same, the two composers have created pieces in incredibly contrasting styles – with a distinct choice of words and manner of expression. Venkata Kavi’s style is highly personal and direct, while Dikshitar’s is generally introverted and meditative.

Free translation:

Dikshitar extols the mother thus - who art the possessor of the fourth avaranam, which is guarded by Samkshobini and other powers, who holds in the heart the powerful Achara of Guruguha, who art possessor of supreme flawless lustre, who art known as Parvati, who art Devi Suparna who art revealed in the Sama Veda.

Free translation:

Oh Goddess of the Srividya Yoga, you reside in the three cities, and are ever benevolent towards the sages. Unite me too at your lotus feet.

Beloved of Tyagesha, you are the giver of the fruits of enjoyment and liberation. You reside in the fourteen triangles known as the sarvasaubhAgyadAyaka cakra. You embody the meaning of all the scriptures, and protect the entire universe. You show great compassion towards your devotees. You wear golden palm-leaf earrings, studded with the Nagaratna gem.

You reside in the heart of Sadashiva, surrounded by the traditional Yogini-s. You are seated on a cushion of swan feathers, at the foot of the mango tree in Kanchipuram. You are most holy, and are the essence of Maya. You are the daughter of the copper-colored sage, Matanga, of good observances. You are the essence of the IM mantra, you meditate on the principle of Isvara. You reside in the blissful enclosure of fourteen triangles.
