विवादे विषादे प्रमादे प्रवासे जले चानले पर्वते शत्रुमध्ये।

अरण्ये शरण्ये सदा मां प्रपाहि गतिस्त्वं गतिस्त्वं त्वमेका भवानि॥ 

विवाद, विषाद, प्रमाद, या प्रवास में, जल, अग्नि, अथवा पर्वत में, शत्रुओं के बीच, और जंगल में, मेरी रक्षा करो, तुम ही शरण्य हो। तुम ही रास्ता हो, एकमात्र तुम ही रास्ता हो, माँ भवानी।

English translation: During the dispute, despair, intoxication, or travelling, in water, fire, or mountains, amidst enemies, and in the forest, protect me, for you are my refuge. You are the way, the only way, Bhavani!
