Aarti of Maa Katyayani :- 

jay jay ambe jay kaatyaanee

jay jagamaata jag kee mahaaraanee

baijanaath sthaan tumhaara

vaha varadaatee naam pukaara

kaee naam hai kaee dhaam hai

yah sthaan bhee to sukhadhaam hai

har mandir mein jyot tumhaaree

kahee yogeshvaree mahima nyaaree

har jagah utsav hote rahate

har mandir mein bhagat hai kahate

katyaanee rakshak kaaya kee

granthi kaate moh maaya kee

jhoothe moh se chhudaane vaalee

apana naam japaane vaalee

brehspativaar ko pooja karie

dhyaan kaatyaanee ka dhariye

har sankat ko door karegee

bhandaare bharapoor karegee

jo bhee maan ko chaman pukaare

kaatyaanee sab kasht nivaare
