The ninth Avaranam is a celebration. Dikshitar is all praise and gratitude while Venkata Kavi, the usually more personal, direct, poet, is subdued in this final piece.

Note: This composition is on the presiding Goddess of the ninth AvaraNa, which is called the sarvAnandamaya cakra.

Free Translation:

The Mother shines transcendent, the Mother of the worlds is surpassingly resplendent, My Mother who is a congregation of sweetness, drowns all in Her magnificent splendor. My Mother's sweet grandeur is but palely reflected in the Full Moon. I have been protected by the Ambika, who is the home of mercy.

Free translation:

Oh emerald-hued Goddess, you are the wish-fulfilling creeper, seated in the sarvAnandamaya cakra, which consists of the supreme bliss. Bestow upon me your glance that confers immortality, like divine nectar.

Empress of the universe, you are the most beautiful one in all the three cities. You are the most secret of the most secret Yogini-s, and you have captured the heart of Parameshwara. Your face excels the blooming jasmine, the lotus and the tender water-lily. You are worshipped by all the Gods led by Indra. [1]

You are the wave of bliss in the inner consciousness. You are surrounded by divine and human yogis and confer prosperity. Your auspicious lotus-feet are worshipped by the hosts surrounding Siva. You are impartible, residing in the drop at the center of the Sricakra, which resembles the ocean of nectar. Your face is like the autumnal moon, and your glories are sung by kings and people of good conduct, and by Narada and the divine Gandharvas. You take delight in the music that captures the essence of the nine AvaraNas, and in yoga (meditation), tapas (penance) and japa (recitation).

Notes:

1. shatamakha - who has performed a hundred sacrifices. Indra, the king of the Gods, attains his position due to the performance of a hundred ashvamedha sacrifices.
