Goddess Durga Mantras

Goddess Durga is one of the most popular goddesses in Hindu religion. She is the Divine Mother and representation of compassion, strength, morality and protection. She protects her devotees from evil powers and safeguards them. It is believed that Goddess Durga is said to be the combined form of powers of Goddesses Laxmi, Kali and Saraswati.

"Na Mantram Na Yantram Tadapi Cha Na Jane Stutimaho Na Chavhanam Dhyanam Tadapi Cha Na Jane Stutikathah

Na Jane Mudraste Tadapi Cha Na Jane Vilapanam Param Jane Matastvadanusaranam Kleshaharanam"

In this Prayer the Devotee addresses Durga as Maa (which means Mother) and tells her that he does not know any prayer, mantra or any magic summons for Durga. He also admits his ignorance that he does not know how to meditate on Goddess Durga nor does he know much about her story and glory or the various postures of the divine mother. He further says that he is seeking shelter and protection from Maa Durga as following her command will definitely put an end to all his sufferings. In most of the prayers to Goddess Durga ,the person reciting addresses himself as an incompetent and ignorant who only knows that that if he prays her, she will offer her unconditional help to him and save him from all his miseries by giving him courage and strength for facing all troubles. Goddess Durga is respected and referred as the mother of whole of the world and all nature who protects her children from all troubles. How much ever a son/daughter be bad, can a mother be cruel and hate or leave her own child? The Durga mantra is the one which has in it the best way of reaching towards the Divine mother who would never let her children down. Maa Durga is that Mother to whom we can have a soul talk about our sufferings and troubles and ask for mercy and forgiveness if one has done a wrong deed and be rest assured that Durga Maa will never let you to be in distress.

There are several mantras for Durga but the Mantra "Om Sri Durgaya Namah"is the most simple and easy mantra to remember. It is believed that by chanting this mantra regularly the Universal Mother would remove all the physical, mental, economic problems in our life. Some other Mantras of Maa Durga are

"AUM AING HRING KLEENG CHAMUNDAYE VICHCHEY AUM"

"Ya devi sarvabhuteshu, shakti rupena samshthitha Namasteshwai Namasteshwai Namasteshwai namo namaha".

Goddess Durga Chalisa

Namo namo durge sukha karani

Namo namo ambe duhkha harani

Nirankara hai jyoti tumhari

Tihuun loka phaili ujiyari

Shashi lilata mukha maha vishala

Netra lala bhrikuti vikarala

Ruupa matu ko adhika suhave

Darasha karata jana ati sukha pave

Tuma sansara shakti laya kina

Palana hetu anna dhana dina

Annapuurana hui jaga pala

Tuma hi adi sundari bala

Prlayakala saba nashana hari

Tuma gauri shiva shankara pyari

Shiva yogi tumare guna gaven

Brahma vishnu tumhen nita dhyaven

Ruupa sarasvati ko tuma dhara

De subuddhi rishi munina ubara

Dharayo ruupa narasinha ko amba

Pragata bhai phada kara khamba

Raksha kari prahalada bachayo

Hiranakusha ko svarga pathayo

Lakshmi ruupa dhara jaga mahin

Shri narayana anga samahi

Kshirasindhu men karata vilasa

Daya sindhu dijai mana asa

Hingalaja men tumhin bhavani

Mahima amita na jata bakhani

Matangi aru dhuumavati mata

Bhuvaneshvari bagala sukhadata

Shri bhairava tara jaga tarini

Chhinna bhala bhava duhkha nivarini

Kehari vahana soha bhavani

Langura vira chalata agavani

Kara men khappara khadhga viraje

Jako dekha kala dara bhaje

Sohe astra aura trishuula

Jate uthata shatru hiya shuula

Nagara koti men tumhin virajata

Tihuun loka men danka bajata

Shumbha nishumbha danava tuma mare

Rakta bija shankhana sanhare

Mahishasura nripa ati abhimani

Jehi adha bhara mahi akulani

Ruupa karala kalika dhara

Sena sahita tuma tihi sanhara

Pari gadha santana para jaba jaba

Bhai sahaya matu tuma taba taba

Amarapuri aru basava loka

Taba mahima saba rahe ashoka

Jvala men hai jyoti tumhari

Tumhen sada puujen nara nari

Prema bhakti se jo yasha gave

Duhkha daridra nikata nahin ave

Dhyave tumhen jo nara mana lai

Janma marana takau chhuti jai

Jogi sura muni kahata pukari

Yoga na ho bina shakti tumhari

Shankara acharaja tapa kino

Kama aru krodha jiti saba lino

Nishidina dhyana dharo shankara ko

Kahu kala nahin sumiro tumako

Shakti ruupa ko marama na payo

Shakti gai taba mana pachhatayo

Sharanagata hui kirti bakhani

Jaya jaya jaya jagadamba bhavani

Bhai prasanna adi jagadamba

Dai shakti nahin kina vilamba

Moko mata kashta ati ghero

Tuma bina kauna hare duhkha mero

Asha trishna nipata satavai

Moha madadika saba vinashavai

Shatru nasha kijai maharani

Sumiron ikachita tumhen bhavani

Karo kripa he mata dayala

Riddhi siddhi de karahu nihala

Jaba lagi jiyau daya phala paun

Tumharo yasha main sada sunaun

Durga chalisa jo jana gave

Saba sukha bhoga paramapada pave

Devidasa sharana nija jani

Karahu kripa jagadamba bhavani

There is a Serial dedicated to Goddess Durga ‘Jai Maa Durga' which is shown on Star TV in which Maa Durga saves her devotee Sundari from the hands of the demon.

    In Hindu religion only we have more names for the God. Yes! that makes us feel that we are living in the family of God. The moral stories of various Gods give usgood habits. The japa parayana (changting mantras) give us confidence, cintentment in life and real satisfaction too.

    I have not started reading your hubs fully. I shall go through them and give my comments too.

    Ohm Namasivaya! Thathvamasi! Ohm namo Narayana! Sarvam Brahmarpanamasthu.

    LOL

    Ease travels. Visit my hub if time permits.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the response. I have a Hub on Gayathri Mantra as well. https://hubpages.com/religion-philosophy/mother-of

    There are plenty of Mantras in Hindu Religion. I chant a few like Gayathri, Mahamrityunjay and Navagraha about which I already have written on my Hubs and would be writing on Ganesh, Hanuman, Laxmi, Saraswati, Krishna ..
