[Madura Kali Amman Temple is situated in Siruvachur Village off Trichy-Chennai Highway. The temple is open during Monday and Friday only. Other days it is believed that amman is guarding the village from near by hills along with her guards - Selliamman, Karuppanna swamy. The amman is worshipped as Madhurambhika by devotees. More information about the temple is available in www.velachery.com/heritage/kali.htm. The author of this prayer is Sri Muthuswami, who was the first priest of this temple and lived before 1920. He was generally called Semmangudi Swamiyar (Sage of Semmangudi).]

Eka vasthre shiki jwala shike shubhe,
Vama roope kapala dahane, sarvaabharana bhooshithe 1

She who wears one cloth, who has a hair similar to crest of peacock,
Who does good. Who has left sided form, who burns skulls,
Who decorates herself with all different ornaments,

Kroora damshtre, raktha malye, ashta dasa bhuja kare,
Mangale, kaarane, maathe, mathar bale, rakshake, 2

She who has cruel teeth, she who wears red garlands,
She who has eighteen hands, she who does good,
She who is the cause, she who is the mother,
She who is the power of mother, She who protects,

Kunkuma priye guna vaasine, kula vrudhi kaarane, sriye,
Soola damarukam chaiva kapala pasa dharine. 3

She who likes kumkum,* She who lives in good qualities,
She who helps the clan to increase, She who is goddess Lakshmi,
She who carries trident, drum, skull and a rope.
*Saffron

Omkara roopine, sakthi vara roope varaaye,
Sukhasane Chamunde, sundari yogadheeswari. 4

She who is of the form of Om, She who is the form of blessed Shakthi,
She who gives boons, she who sits pleasantly, She who killed Chanda,
She who is very pretty, She who is the goddess of Yoga

Simha vahana priye, devi, Shyama varne cha sambhavi,
Madhura kali, masana vase, mathruka, maha mangali, 5

She who likes to ride on a lion, She who is the goddess,
She who is black in colour, she who makes things happen,
Sweet kali, she who lives in cremation ground,
She who is the ideal, She who is great goodness,

Seer vachoor vasa priye, seegra vara mandithe,
Poorva punya darsane devi, maha mangala darsini, 6

She who likes to live in seer vachoor, she who gives boons speedily,
She who can be seen only with accumulated punya, Goddess,
She who sees that greatly good things will happen.

Jyothir maye, jaya kalike, dukha nasana priye, Shive,
Janma labha vare, kanthe, madhure, jyothi roopine, 7

She who is full of light, She who is the victorious Kali,
She who likes to destroy sorrow, She who is the consort of Shiva,
She who gives the boon of profit, she who is the consort,
She who is sweet, She who is of the form of light,

Sarva klesa nasine, mathe, savithri, Abheeshtanugrahe,
Shodasanugrahe, devi,bhakthanugraha archithe, 8

She who destroys all sufferings, mother, Savithri,
She who blesses fulfillment of desires,
She who gives sixteen type of blessings,
Goddess, She who blesses devotees who worship her.

Yeka masam shukra vare soubhagyam kali darshanam,
Shukra soma dhanam japithwa sarva mangala nidhi bhagyatham. 9

If chanted on all Fridays for a month, you would get all luck and see Kali,
If chanted on all Fridays and Mondays all the good and treasure will be received.

Ashta poornam japeth nithyam Ashta sidhi prapthitham shubham,
Ithi sri mauthuswami jihwa dwara jaya madhurashtakam sampoornam. 10

If daily it is chanted eight times all the eight occult powers would be received.
Thus ends the octet called Jaya Madhura, written by Sri Muthuswami.
