atha sri matrpancakam ।
muktamani tvam nayanam mameti
rajeti jiveti cira suta tvam ।
ityuktavatyastava vaci matah
dadamyaham tandulameva suskam ॥ 1॥

ambeti tateti siveti tasmin
prasutikale yadavoca uccaih ।
krsneti govinda hare mukunda
iti jananyai aho racito’yamanjalih ॥ 2॥

astam tavadiyam prasutisamaye durvarasulavyatha
nairucyam tanusosanam malamayi sayya ca samvatsari ।
ekasyapi na garbhabharabharanaklesasya yasyaksamah
datum niskrtimunnato’pi tanayastasyai jananyai namah ॥ 3॥

gurukulamupasrtya svapnakale tu drsṭva
yatisamucitavesam prarudo mam tvamuccaih ।
gurukulamatha sarvam prarudatte samaksam
sapadi caranayoste matarastu pranamah ॥ 4॥

na dattam mataste maranasamaye toyamapiva

mAtRipanchakam Meaning:

You are the pearl of my eyes, my prince, may you live long, son!
In your mouth, that spoke these words, O Mother!,
I now offer dry grains of rice. (1)

Mother!! Father!! Shiva!! with these words You cried out loudly the time of child birth – KrishNa! Govinda! Hare! Mukunda! To that mother I now bow with folded hands offering funerary libations. (2)

At the time of giving birth to me, O Mother!, you suffered from unbearable pain. You did not speak about the suffering of your body nor of your painful condition while lying in the bed for almost a year. For even one of the sufferings that you underwent during pregnancy, O Mother!, a son is unable to offer atonement. To that mother I offer my salutations! (3)

When in a dream, you saw me dressed like an ascetic, You cried aloud and came to the school. The whole school then immediately cried before you. At your feet, O Mother ! I offer my obeisance! (4)

I did not offer you water at the time of your death, Oh Mother! I did not even offer the oblations as per funerary rites on the day of your death ! Nor did I repeat the mantra that delivers one across the ocean of this world! Alas! I have come at an inappropriate time! O Mother! Bestow upon me your unequalled compassion. (5)
