To achieve victory we need your help
Oh Bala, you are the blessed form!
Victorious, Victorious, Sri Bala
Beautiful ruler of three worlds
Uttering your holy name
Dispels darkness and brings forth new dawn!

Just a little success is enough
If it comes our way in education, wealth or employment!
Oh dear mother,
wicked glances cast by evil people
dash against us relentlessly, every day!
For all our sins to be destroyed
And old wounds to get healed
Our hearts yearn with such longing
Victorious, Victorious, Sri Bala
Beautiful Goddess, ruler of three worlds
Please remove all harmful forces
From our lives!

May good glances cast by worthy people
Constantly uttering your name
Fall on me!
May those who are feeble,
Stand up with good health,
Instantly they cry out your name!
Let those who are vengeful
Harboring venom in their hearts
Fall and perish with each passing day
Victorious, Victorious, Sri Bala,
Lovely ruler of three worlds
May we worship you every single day!

From all directions

Every single day!
Oh Bala, your very glance, like fire,
Can burn all wicked foes completely
Victorious, Victorious, Sri Bala,
Holy ruler of all three worlds
Your praises , like sweet nectar
Spread in all directions.

Jaya Jaya Bala Thiri pura sundari
Unai pOl deivam vErEdhu!

Bala, you test your devotees so,
Nothing can be real or lasting here.
Oh Bala, without mentioning your holy name
Nothing can flourish or prosper here!
When Bala’s name is inhaled
Like very breath itself
No harm can ever approach us!
Victorious, Victorious, Sri Bala,
Divine and lovely ruler of three worlds
Can any other God be like You!

Glances of those filled with hatred, burn like fiery flames
Yet, they can never harm us!
When our hearts are filled with Bala’s presence
No space can there be for Fear anytime!
Visiting Nemili just once
Ensures no sorrow can ever arrive
In your life!
Victorious, Victorious, Sri Bala,
Beautiful and Divine ruler of three worlds
Your grace can never vary , never change!

Dispels all worries and evil forces!
Victorious, Victorious, Sri Bala
Beautiful lady, ruler of three worlds
With joy and happiness
Bless us to lead good lives!

Oh Mother, no other Divine being
Except you
Can Embrace us the instant we think of you!
Reciting your name each day is enough
All sins and wrongdoings
vanish completely.
Earth, water, air, Fire and Space itself
Derive life-essence from You
Victorious, Victorious, Sri Bala
Beautiful Goddess of all worlds
This entire universe Bows in Worship
To You!


Recite this “Armour” daily, in the morning as well as at night.
All evil and malefic forces will vanish, worries will cease and this shield or “Armour” itself will grant all your wishes.

As a beauteous form, radiating divine bliss
Seated are you in Nemili
Granting positive results
The instant we know you
You Pervade our hearts completely
Oh Bala, you fill our hearts, totally.

Idarathu irukkum idamathu therinthu
Chaduthiyil vanthiduvaai!
Udanadiyaaga en uLLathil amarnthu
Oozhvinai kaLainthiduvaai!

Discerning the location where suffering exists
Swiftly you do arrive
And seated in my heart immediately
All sins of past births you disperse fully!

Nodikkoru nOi dinam enai vandhu soozhgayil
Nodiyinil vandiduvaai!
Adikkadi un thiru peyar thanai kooRida
Anaithaiyum agaRRividuvaai!

When I’m Assailed by many ailments
Every minute, each day,
Within a second you come to my side.
Crying out your holy name repeatedly
You make all pain and suffering

Narambugal yaavum thaLarndhidhidum vElaiyil
naRumugai nee varuvaai!
varambugaL indri varam tharum kuzhanthaai

When blood vessels in my body
Are weakened with infirmity
With goodness , You do appear
Granting boons without any boundaries
Oh precious child,
all my fatigue you disperse!

Enai pidithu aatkoLlum ellaa nOigaLum

All diseases that have conquered
and are controlling my body
You must make them vanish
Oh dear Mother!
Contemplating you each day
All sins should melt away,
Oh Mother, I do pray!

Udal nilai pOnathamma!

Oh Mother, my parents
are distressed
Witnessing the poor state of my health,
Others mock and laugh at me from afar
Such has become my plight in Life
Oh Mother,
Such is my condition in this life!

Maruthuvam palavum paarthitta piRagum
maaRRam illai amma!
Oru thavam inRi unaiyE ninaithida
En kuRai theerthidamma!
Despite undergoing many a medical treatment
No change in my condition
Have I seen!
I think of You constantly,
Without respite,
Please come to relieve my suffering.
Oh Mother, please remove my pain!

NeeyinRi enakku ulaginil vERu
DeivangaL Edhamma!
Thaayinri thavikkum en kuRai pOkkida
Thaavi nee vandhidamma!

Have I placed trust in any another God
In this world,
Except You?
I suffer like a child
Who has been orphaned
Leap to my rescue, Oh Mother,
And remove all my sorrow!

Uruvinil nee oRu chiru kuzhandai ena
Ulagathaar kooridalaam!
Karuvinai aLikkum un thiru munnE
AnaithumE thoosi amma!

The whole world might proclaim
You are tiny, in form and size!
Yet, in front of your Holy form
Breathing life into each embryo
Everything else loses significance
And becomes mere Specks of dust!

Ulagathil uLLa palakOdi deivamum
unnuL adakam amma!
Kalagamum kabadamum niRaintha ivvulagai
KaLippudan MaaRRidamma!

Countless and millions of Holy beings
Are dissolved within your holy form
Oh dear Mother.
Please transform with Joy and delight
This world, filled with confusion and vice
Oh, Bala, our very dear Mother!

This prayer removes existing ailments and provides protection from those diseases that might affect us in the future!
