Arjuna kruta Durga Stuthi



Arjuna kruta Durga Stuthi

By
Arjuna

Translated by
P.R.Ramachander

(This occurs in Mahabharatha in the  Bheeshma Parva. Just before the start of the war , Lord Krishna requests Arjuna  to pray  the Goddess Durga   for his victory. Arjuna uses this great prayer to pray her. One who recites this famous Durga stothra regularly will be fearless, will not be troubled by evil spirits and overcome obstacles in life. Worshiping Goddess Durga with this prayer will be very effective and useful when recited during Rahu-Kalam, especially when one is passing through the Rahu Dasa or for those who are troubled by Rahu dosha.)

1.Namaste Siddha senaani Aarye Mandara vasini
Kumari Kali Kapali Kapile Krishna pingale

Salutations to the commander of Sidhas, who is noble and lives in forest of Mandhara,
Who is  the virgin Kali who wears  the skulls , who is brown , black and tawny.

2,Bhadrakali namastbhyam Mahakali namostute
Chande Chande namastubhyam Tarini varavarnini

I salute the gracious Kali , I salute the great Kali,

3,Katyayani mahabhage Karali Vijaye Jaye
Shikhi piccha dhvajadhare nanabharanabhushithe

Oh greatly valorous daughter of kathyayana ,
Oh terrible achiever  of victory  and  triumph,

And who is  decorated with different type of ornaments.

4.Attashula prharane Khadga khetaka dharini

5.Mahisha sruk  priye nithyam Kaushiki Peetavasini
Attahase Kokamukhe namastestu Ranapriye

She who likes the blood of Mahishasura , who  lives on silken bench,

6.Ume Shakambari Shwete Krishne Kaitabha nashini
Hirnyakshi Virupakshi Sudhumrakshi namostute
