Aarti of Santoshi Mata
भोग लगाओ मैया योगेश्वरी भोग लगाओ मैया भुवनेश्वरी ।
भोग लगाओ माता अन्नपूर्णेश्वरी मधुर पदार्थ मन भाए ॥
थाल सजाऊं खाजा खीर प्रेम सहित विनती करूं धर धीर ।
तुम माता करुणा गंभीर भक्त चना गुड़ प्रिय पाए ॥
शुक्रवार तेरो दिन प्यारो कथा में पधारो दुःख टारो ।
भाव मन में तेरो न्यारो मन मानै दुःख प्रगटाए ॥
तेरा तुझको दे रहे, करो कृतारथ मात ।
भोग लग मां कर कृपा, कर परिपूरन काज ॥
करो क्षमा मेरी भूल को तुम हो मां सर्वज्ञ ॥
सब बिधि अर्पित मात हूं, मैं बिल्कुल अल्पज्ञ ॥
कुछ न मांगूं आपसे दो हित को पहचान ।
मां संतोषी आप हैं दया-स्नेह की खान ॥
॥ बोलो संतोषी माता की जय ॥
