Santoshi Mata Aarti – The Hymn of Goddess Santoshi
Santoshi Mata is the Hindu Goddess of calm and contentment. Santoshi Mata is prayed for 16 consecutive Fridays, to bring about a total fulfillment of ones hopes and aspirations. Santoshi Mata is considered as the omnipresent divine mother in Shaktism.The focus is on the worship of the mother as God or the eternal all powerful mother, from whom everything emerges.
The Aarti of Santoshi Mata is to be recited with devotion after lighting cotton wicks dipped in an earthen pot made from clay or any other oil lamp. The Aarti can be said everyday, and Friday is the weekly day of the Mata. Family values are said to be cherished and rewarded by Santoshi Mata.
Jai Santoshi Mata, Jai Santoshi Mata,
Apne Sevak Jan Ko Sukh Sampati Daata.
Sunder Cheer Sunehari Maa Dharan Keenho,
Heera Panna Damke Tan Singar Leenho.
Geru Lal Chata Chhavi Badan Kamal Sohe,
Mand Hasat Karunmayi Tribhuvan Man Mohe.
Swaran Sinhasan Bethi Chanvar Dhuren Pyare,
Dhoop Deep Madhu Meva Bhog Dhare Nyare.
Gud Aur Chana Param Priye Tamen Santosh Kiyo,
Santoshi Kahlai Bhaktan Vibnav Diyo.
Shukra Var Priya Manat Aaj Divas Sohi,
Bhakt Mandali Chhayi, Katha Sunat Mohi.
Mandir Jugmug Jyoti Mangal Dhvani Chhayi,
Vinay Karen Hum Balak Charnan Siru Nayi.
Bhakti Bhav Maya Pooja Angikrat Kejee,
Jo Man Base Hamare Ichcha Pal Dejee.
Dukhi Daridri Rogi Sankat Mukt Kiya,
Bahu Dhandhanya Bhare Ghar Sukh Sobhagya Diye.
Dhyan Dharo Jane Tero Man Vanchhit Phal Payo,
Pooja Katha Shravan Kar Ur Anand Aayo.
Sharan Gahe Ki Lajja Raakhyo Jagdambe,
Sankat Toohi Nivare Dayamayi Ambe.
Santoshi Maa Ki Aarti Jo Koi Jan Gave,
Riddhi Siddhi Sukh Sampati Jee Bhar Ke Pave.
