O beloved consort of Lord Shiva, please bestow long life of the husband and beautiful sons to your women devotees.

I would observe the fasting of Karak Chaturthi for the wellbeing of the husband, sons and grandsons and to gain fixed wealth.

O milk filled Karwe with precious stones; I donate you, so that my husband is long-lived.
