Oh Goddess, Source of all words,
This poem made of words,
words which only You create,
Is like offering a camphor lamp to the Sun at noon.
The first forty-one verses are known as Ananda Lahari, or Waves of Bliss, and the remaining verses are known as Saundarya Lahari, or Waves of Beauty. She is known as Tripura, the one who lives in the three cities of waking, dreaming, and deep sleep.
