The Song of Devotion to Ma Durga Devi

Sri Durga Saptashati has been widely used by devotees down the centuries as paarayana grandha, a scripture for careful, repeated perusal, and contemplation. In all devout households, women folk particularly make it their pious obligation to recite the seven hundred slokas in the scripture. They worship Ma Durgadevi with utmost reverence which is conveyed in uttering “namastasyaei, namastasyaei, namastasyaei, namo namah..”

The devotees pray thus: “Salutations to Devi, the Supreme deity! ; Our salutations to the ever- auspicious, the primordial Energy and Power. ; We prostate before her.

;Salutations to the one dreadful Devi. ; Salutations to the everlasting, the eternal and the one shining in the form of the Sun and Moon, joy and comfort.

Salutations to the embodiment of auspiciousness. ; Our homage to the personified as progress and victor. ; Salutations to Lord Shiva’s consort, deity of both fortune and disaster to rulers.

Salutations to the one who helps us cross tribulations, the one renown personified, the black hued one, Devi.

We prostrate again and again before the one with the most benign and the most frightful Devi. ; Our salutations to the ‘bearer’ of the worlds, the embodiment of fruition of will and intention, sankalpa shakti.

Salutations again and again to the Supreme deity revered as Vishnu maaya in all Beings.

Salutations again and again to Devi who resides as buddhi , discretion, wisdom and judgment.

Salutations again and again to the Devi who stays in the form of sleep in all living beings.

Salutations again and again to the Devi who stays in the form of hunger in all living beings.

Salutations again and again to the Devi who stays in the form of reflection in all beings.

Salutations again and again to the Devi who stays in the form of Energy and Power in all elements.

Salutations again and again to the Devi who stays in the form of thirst in all beings.

Salutations again and again to the Devi who stays in all beings as patience and forgiveness.

Salutations again and again to the Devi who stays as genius in all beings.

Salutations again and again to the Devi who stays in the form of humility and modesty.

Salutations again and again to the Devi who stays as good fortune in all beings.

Salutations again and again to the Devi who stays as activity or ability to work in all beings.

Salutations again and again to the Devi who stays as memory in all beings.

Salutations again and again to the Devi who stays as compassion in all beings.

Salutations again and again to the Devi who stays in all beings a contentment.

Salutations again and again to the Devi who stays in all beings as Mother.

Salutations again and again to the Devi who stays as error or illusion in all beings.

Salutations again and again to the Devi who rules all beings having all their senses in Her control and who is all pervading.

Salutations again and again to the Devi, the one who is all-pervading as all consciousness.”

May Parvati Devi, who is Eshwari, who has always been worshipped by all the other deities for the fulfilment of their desires and who is the base of all and everything auspicious, protect us ending all under troubles and tribulations. ; May She protect us all giving us everything auspicious.

May the Devi put an end to all dangers and untoward occurrences.

Glory be to the Mother of all.
