In the seventh avaranam, the composers are confident that the deity would reveal herself after one crosses nine layers. The momentum of the process, the seriousness of the seeker, the benevolence of the mother, all play their part in this.

Kamalamba who is a garden of Kalpa-rees to those who seek refuge in her who has earned the title of Chandika who is the mother of the Universe whose face is like the full moon, whose eyes are like the red lotus-flower whose feet are adored by Indra the enemy of Bakasura, who possesses the resplendece of the ray that radiates over all the five elements trees, who is the female deer wandering in the glade known as Hreem Mantra who is like the bunch of delicious flwers of the tree known as Hreem Mantra who is the owner of Hreem Mantra who is known as Gowri because she is of golden color, who is the embodiment of Rajayoga, which has power to dispell all diseases, who plays the Veena held in her sacred hand, who disports in Kamalangar who gladdens god, man and sage, who dispenses boons to Guruguha.

Free translation:

I surrender all only to you, Oh Empress of the entire universe. You are the essence of auspiciousness and bliss, and of the form of the sarvarogahara (remover of all ailments) cakra.

You are the essence of consciousness and speech, containing all the sounds, from a to ksha. You are worshipped by sages like Suka, Narada and Agastya. The king of serpents, who bears the world on his hundred hoods, adorns your hand as a bracelet. You enchant the world and grant knowledge and accomplishments for the world's welfare.

You are endowed with all auspicious qualities, and are worshipped for removing the disease of repeated rebirths. You are described in poems and dramas, which are ornamented with figures of speech employing the nine rasas. You confer wealth and welfare to the world. You are the sister of Govinda. Your body is like the petal of a blooming blue lotus, and your face equals a hundred suns. You rule over the deities of the (Yogic) accomplishments in the three cities. You reside in the lotus heart of Siva, and you delight in reciting hrIM, the seed mantra of Siva-Kameswara.
