Munh kholun kya tujh se maangun -2, bin maange sab paaya Sheraawaaliye |

Vaishno Devi Yatra

Vaishno Devi Bhajan
Prem se bolo jai mata ki, saare bolo jai mata ki
Ho chalo yatra karne bhagton chalo chalen,
parvat parvat chadte jao, jai mata ki kehte jaao,
maa ke darshan karne bhakton chalo chalen… chalo yatra karne…

Ye Vaishno Maa ke dwara hai, yahan behti jal ki dhara hai – 2,
Ye teen pindiyon ka mandir hai, jo teen lok se nyara hai -2,
Yahan mile kinara doobe ko-2,
Bhavsagar se tarne bhakton chalo chalen… chalo yatra karne…

Jagdani mata Chamunda ke charnon ka mil ke dhyan dharo,
kalyan ho jaaye paapon se kalyani ke gungaan karo-2,
Maharani Kaangre wali ki…
Sab mil ke haajri bharne bhakton chalo chalen… chalo yatra karne…

Vaishno Devi

Maa Ambe mata jwala ki sadiyon se pooja hoti hai -2,
Mansa Devi bhakton ki har mansa poori karti hai,
Jo bina tel ki jalti hai, ye maa shakti ki jyoti hai -2,
Maa Chintapoorni ke dar pe,
Sab man ki chinta harne bhakton chalo chalen… chalo yatra karne…

Maa Mansa Devi bhakton ki har mansa poori karti hai,
Maharani Kalka rani ye sankat aur vipda harti hai,
Bhakton ke phal aur phoolon se…
Ye jeevan jholi bharne bhakton chalo chalen… chalo yatra karne…

Stuti

Sun meri devi parvat vasini, tera paar na paaya ||
Paan supari dhwaja nariyal, le teri bhent chadhaya ||
Suwa choli tere ang viraje, kesar tilak lagaya ||
Nange paanv tere akbar aakar, sone ka chhatra chadhaya ||
Oonche parvat bana devalay, neeche shahar basaya ||
Satyug, treta, dwapar madhye kaliyug raj sawaya ||
Dhoop, deep, naivedya, aarti mohan bhog lagaya ||
Dhyanu bhakt maiya tera gun gaave manvaanchhit phal paaya ||
