Maa Shailputri Aarti

शैलपुत्री मां बैल असवार | करें देवता जय जय कार ||
शिव-शंकर की प्रिय भवानी | तेरी महिमा किसी ने न जानी ||
पार्वती तूं उमा कहलावे | जो तुझे सुमिरे सो सुख पावें ||
रिद्धि सिद्धि परवान करे तू || दया करे धनवान करे तू ||
सोमवार को शिव संग प्यारी | आरती जिसने तेरी उतारी ||
उसकी सगरी आस पुजा दो | सगरे दुःख तकलीफ मिटा दो ||
घी का सुंदर दीप जला के | गोला गरी का भोग लगा के ||
श्रद्धा भाव से मंत्र जपायें | प्रेम सहित फिर शीश झुकायें ||
जय गिरराज किशोरी अम्बे | शिव मुख चन्द्र चकोरी अम्बे ||
मनोकामना पूर्ण कर दो | चमन सदा सुख संम्पति भर दो
