Notes:

This song is in pa~ncamI vibhakti (ablative vase). The basic prose sentence unit (anvaya) is kamalAmbiyAH paraM nahi re, re citta (Oh mind, there is nothing greater than Goddess Kamalamba), and all the words ending in yAH or "eH" qualify kamalAmbAyAH. The rAga name Bhairavi is given directly.

The cakra for the fifth AvaraNa, called sarvasiddhiprada cakra, is the outer set of ten triangles, and is known as bahirdashAra cakra. The nava AdhAras in Kundalini yoga are: mUlAdhAra, svAdhiShThana, maNipUra, anAhata, madhyamA, vajrakaNTHa, lambikA, vishuddha, and Aj~nA.

The ten shaktis (dasha shakti) referred to here are: sarvasiddhipradA, sarvasampatpradA, sarvapriyaMkarI, sarvamaN^gaLakAriNI, sarvakAmapradA, sarvaduHkhavimocanI, m.rtyuprashamanI, sarvavighnanivariNI, sarvasundarI, and sarvasaubhagyadAyinI. These ten shaktis are known as kulottIrNa yoginis. 

The dashakaraNas are the the ten organs, consisting of the five sense organs (jnAnendriya-s) and the five organs of action (karmendriya-s).
