कल्पान्ते मधुकैटभासुरपराभूतस्य धातुः स्तवैः
प्रीता पङ्कजलोचनस्य नयनान्निर्गत्य निद्रामयी ।
तौ युद्धे परिमोह्य घातितवती तेनैव विश्वेश्वरी
रोद्धुं घोरकृतान्तसैन्यमिह मे दुर्गैव दुर्गायताम् ॥ १॥

Being pleased by the praises sung by Brahma who was troubled
by the asuras Madhu and Kaitabha at the end of a kalpa, She,
the supreme Devi, supporter of the worlds, emerged out of
MahaVishnu’s eyes, who was in mystic slumber. Deluded by
Mahamaya, the evil asuras, Madhu and Kaitabha, were then slayed
by MahaVishnu. Let Goddess Durga become a fort for me to stop
the terrible army of kRitAnta, the god of death.

त्रैलोक्ये महिषासुरप्रमथिते सम्भूय सञ्चिन्ततां

रोद्धुं घोरकृतान्तसैन्यमिह मे दुर्गैव दुर्गायताम् ॥ २॥

When Mahishasura was creating havoc in all the three worlds,
the devas got together and requested Brahma, Siva and Vishnu
for help. Then Goddess Durga was created and weapons were given
by them. Let Goddess Durga, whose battle attire is accompanied
by the loud cries of the devas, become a fort for me to stop
the terrible army of kRitAnta, the god of death.

निःश्वासप्रभवैश्च भूतनिवहैर्विध्वस्तदैत्योत्करा

रोद्धुं घोरकृतान्तसैन्यमिह मे दुर्गैव दुर्गायताम् ॥ ३॥

The sighs heaved by the Goddess turned into battallions and
with them, she killed the army of asuras. Then She killed
ChikShura, the general of the asura army. Her lion jumped on
Chamara, another able member of the asuras and killed him in a
battle. Within moments She also destroyed the enemies udagra,
karAla, bAShkala, biDAla and others. Let Goddess Durga become
a fort for me to stop the terrible army of kRitAnta, the god

Then shivadUtI (one who sent Siva as messenger) – her own power
was created by combining the powers of all the devas of the
brahmANDa. Then She was called to battle by the asuras who were

the devas’ powers. Let that Goddess Durga become a fort for me

रोद्धुं घोरकृतान्तसैन्यमिह मे दुर्गैव दुर्गायताम् ॥ १०॥

The devas next saw the asura raktabIja, who came to the
battlefield and who created fear by filling the earth with warriors
(of his kind) who sprung from his blood that oozed out of him
when he was struck by the shaktis. Then as and when Devi attacked
raktabIja, kAli drank his blood and ultimately he perished. Let

Next was the terrible battle with shumbha and nishumbha. nishumba
who fought with an axe and arrows was struck unconscious by Devi
with a sword. Then with the trident She struck shumbha who was
fighting ferociously with ‘shakti’ – indra’s weapon and with
arrows. Let that Goddess Durga become a fort for me to stop the

रोद्धुं घोरकृतान्तसैन्यमिह मे दुर्गैव दुर्गायताम् ॥ १३॥

When the different shaktis and Her lion were fighting the asuras,
shumbha accused the devi of depending on another’s strenth. So
She merged all other manifestations into Herself and fought for a
long with Shumba who fought with many kinds of weapons (Shastra)
and astras (arrows released after invoking a mantra). Let that

shumba’s weapons were destroyed and he was hit by Devi with her
palm. An angry shumbha took Her to the sky and fought fiercely.
Devi then decided that She had fought enough and killed him with
Her trident and made the earth free of distress. Let that Goddess
Durga becomes a fort for me to stop the terrible army of kritanta,

Lyrics of Durga Saptshati | Maa Durga Saptshati Path

Durga Saptashati relates the story of how the devi (mother Goddess) killed Madhu and Kaidabha as Vishnu Maya (Thamasic-base), killed Mahishasura as Lakshmi (Rajashic form materialistic) and killed Shumbha and Nishumbha in the form of Goddess Saraswathi (Sathvic-spiritual) .It is known as Devi Mahatmya in South India, Chandi in West Bengal and as Durga Sapthasathi in the northern parts of the country including Varanasi. It consists of Chapters 74 to 86 (13 chapters) of the Markandeya Purana and has 700 stanzas. This Purana is also authored by Veda Vyasa and is a medium sized Purana.
The 700 verses are arranged in 13 chapters. Also, they are arranged in 3 parts (charitas). The three parts have MahaKaali, MahaLakshmi and MahaSaraswati as the deities. They have Rigveda, Yajurveda, and Samaveda as the sware upas. The purposes of the three parts are dharma, artha, and kaama respectively. They have aim, hreem and kleem as the beejas.
Durga Saptashati is the very definition of the nature of Divine Mother. She is the unlimited Shakti (energy) behind all limited Shaktis. Some people call her Durga, some call her Chandi and some call her Mahalakshmi. She is the Moola Prakriti, the root nature, of all that manifests. She is the force that drives everything in the universe.
The stories of Devi Mahatmya are as told by Sage Markandeya to Sage Baguri. He tells him that one king called Suradha, who was driven out of his kingdom by his own people met one Vysya (businessman) called Samadhi who was driven out of his home by his wife and sons, in the forest. They discover that though their own people have driven them out, they are both worried about the welfare of their people. It appears to them that this is unnatural. So they approach Sage Sumedhas who was also living in the forest. The sage tells them that all this is the illusion created by the great Goddess called Vishnu Maya. They became curious and wanted to know about this great mother Goddess. He then relates to them the story of Devi Mahatmya, which consists of three stories in all of which the mother Goddess kills the enemies of Gods.
The first story is that of Madhu and Kaidabha. They take birth from the earwax of Lord Vishnu while he was asleep and start troubling Lord Brahma who was sitting on the lotus originating from the belly of Lord Vishnu. Lord Brahma prays to the Goddess to help him continue his work of creation. The goddess appears and takes the form of Vishnu Maya and kills both Asuras after wrestling with them for thousands of years. Since both these Asuras were of Thamasic origin, she also had a thamasic form.
The second story is of how the mother Goddess helped the devas by killing Mahishasura. This Asura who had the form of buffalo drove away the devas and Indra from their homes. They all go and approach the holy trinity for the redressal of their grievances. This made those three gods very angry and the innate power of the Goddess in them came out and joined together. This goddess was further strengthened by the powers of the various Gods. She was equipped with arms by all devas. This goddess, mainly consisting of the anger generated power killed Mahishasura.
The third story is of how the Great Asura brothers Shumbha and Nishumbha were killed by the goddess. This time, the gods approach Goddess Uma who was wandering in the Himalaya Mountains and told her of their sufferings. Out of the body of the Goddess came Koushikhi or Chandika. She was black in color. She along with the powers generated by various Gods killed Shumbha and Nishumbha.
Sage Markandeya then tells of how the king Suradha and Vysya Samadhi did penance on the goddess and got the boons that they wanted.
In the twelfth chapter , the Goddess tells that for one, who reads or hears, these three stories of her, there is nothing impossible to obtain including salvation.
It is believed that just possession of the Durga Saptashati book has helped many great people to fight evil spirits as well as getting the blessings of the Goddess herself. Several such folk stories abound all over India. One of that famous one in Kerala was how one great Manthrika called Kalluru Namboodhiri was asked by a king called Shakthan Thamburan, to enter the Kodungaloor Bhagawathi temple at night after the festival and bring back his ring from the closed sanctum sanctorum. He did this easily by taking with him a copy of Devi Mahatmya. This book though it is a treasure house for all those trying for supernatural powers is also a book leading one to get his wishes fulfilled and also attain salvation.It is believed that reading of the book during Sharad and Vasantha Navarathris is auspicious.
You can buy this Durga Saptashati in Book format from renowned vendors like Geeta Press who are doing a great job by spreading knowledge at unbelievably low cost. I would strongly recommend you to buy a printed copy of the book published buy Geeta press and keep it beside your bed. It is a great source of energy and the photo of Mahalakshmi on the cover page itself makes you believe that Devi Mata is there with you.
I strongly believe that, if you start reading Durga Saptashati, as and when you have time, it will fill in your life with health, wealth, and prosperity.
