Prayer to Yogamāyā Durga-devi
by Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura 

(Kalyana Kalpataru 38)

kuladebī jogamāyā more kṛpā kori'
ābaraṇa sambaribe kabe biśwodarī
O Goddess Yogamāyā, O the mother of the worlds, when will you be merciful to me and remove this veil of illusions?

e dāse janani kori' akaitaba doyā
bṛndābane deha' sthāna tumi jogamāyā
O mother, please be merciful to this servant. Please don't cheat him. O Yogamāyā, please give him a place in Vṛndāvana.

tomāke laṅghiyā kothā jībe kṛṣṇa pāya
kṛṣṇa-rasa prakaṭilo tomāra kṛpāya
How can a person who neglects you find Lord Kṛṣṇa? It is by your mercy that the nectar of Lord Kṛṣṇa is openly visible.

tumi kṛṣṇa-sahacarī jagata-jananī
tumi dekhāile more kṛṣṇa-cintāmaṇi
You are Lord Kṛṣṇa's companion. You are the mother of the worlds. You showed me the cintāmaṇi jewel that is Lord Kṛṣṇa. 


Māyā-Śhakti = The Lords Power of Illusion
The Gopīs worship Goddess Kātyānanī
