हमको था इंतजार वो घड़ी आ गई.. होकर सिंह पर सवार माता रानी आ गई।
या देवी सर्वभूतेषु शक्तिरूपेण संस्थिता| नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमो नम: ||
लाल रंग क़ी चुनरी से सजा माँ का दरबार, हर्षित हुआ मन, पुलकित हुआ संसार, नन्हे -नन्हे कदमो से माँ आये आपके द्वार.
जगत पालनहार है माँ, मुक्ति का धाम है माँ, हमारी भक्ति का आधार है माँ, सबकी रक्षा की अवतार है माँ, शुभ नवरात्रि
देवी माँ के कदम आपके घर में आयें, आप ख़ुशी से नहायें, परेशानियाँ आपसे आँखें चुरायें, नवरात्रि की आपको ढेरों शुभ कामनाएं। शुभ नवरात्रि।
माँ दुर्गे, माँ अंबे, माँ जगदांबे, माँ भवानी, माँ शीतला, माँ वैष्णाओ, माँ चंडी, माता रानी मेरी और आपकी मनोकामना पूरी करे.जय माता दी.
सारा जहां है जिसकी शरण में, नमन है उस माँ के चरण में, हम है उस माँ के चरणों की धूल, आओ मिलकर माँ को चढ़ाएं श्रद्धा के फूल। शुभ नवरात्रि।
