Maharagyi Maharagyi Dharti Ma orlin Maharagyi
Maharagyi landed down on the earth
Shiva priya Shiva Priya Chitta ma aayin Shiva Priya
Shiva priya settled into the Chitta
(Maharagyi and Shiva Priya are two of many names of Shri Mataji)
Gulab jal le nuhayera mehandi racheko
Having bathed with rose water, she has put on Mehandi
*(Gulaab jal is a Hindi word too, ‘nuhayera’ means ‘naha kar’ in Hindi –Shri Mataji’s photograph is cleaned with gulaab jal)
(* Mehandi racheko means: ‘Mehandi rachi hui’)
Laligurans rang ko pahiran, attar chhareko
Having dressed in the color of rhododendron, she has sprayed fragrance or perfume
*(Laligurans: Rododendron is the national flower of Nepal, its color is scarlet: kind of deep red)
*(Attar is a hindi word too)
Mangala dhuna ma sangeet gai, Nirmala Mata ko aarti utaraun
Lets sing music in Mangala dhun (tune) and perform aarti to Nirmala Mata
Suun ko pauju, suun kai chura, suunai ko chha Haara
Having worn Golden pauju, golden bangle and golden necklace
*(‘pauju’ – ‘anklet’)
*(Chura – is like ‘chudi’ in Hindi, and Haara – is like haar in Hindi)
Manik ratna jadiyeka aabhusan saaraa
She has put on dresses attached with pearls and gems
*(For the word Manikratna: I think this word is applicable in Hindi too. It’s like Mani + Ratna, so I used ‘pearls and gems’.)
*(Jadiyeko means: ‘jada huwa’, and aabhusan is a common word, i.e. dress)
Mangala dhuna ma...
Maanawa rup li aadishakti dharti ma aayin
Having incarnated in the form of human being, adishakti shakti came down to the earth.
(Hindi sentence would be: Maanawa rup le kar aadi shakti dharti mein aayi hain
Devalok ko sara shakti dharti ma fijayin
And she spread all the powers of heaven on earth.
Mangala dhuna ma…Maharagyi…

We polled yesterday's online meditation participants and there was a slight majority in favor of 12pm Saturday Eastern USA time. There were many who were not able to operate the poll and wrote via the email expressing their preferred time a little later than that.
So we will have a havan, web-casted online and everyone is invited to join in. The time will remain Saturday afternoon, 1:30pm Eastern Time / 10:30am Pacific Time. The proceedings are expected to be 90 - 120 minutes.
All you need are four candles, kept in a clean area / platter which you may clean and decorate using kumkum etc.
