[Oh the final abode of all the people! When every other god is showing their “aBhaya and varadha hasThaa”[to protect and give boons], YOU dont display those ‘mudhraas’ as YOUR holy feet are just enough to protect us and give us the boons!] 
This means that the dhEvi just GIVES without showing off, to those who see HER!! 
**Chanting this as the concluding ‘namaskaara shlOkam’ every day at your poojaas is highly recommended.** 

[PP; sakala Bhaya nivridhdhi, rOga nivridhdhi]
