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".

Shree Durga Chalisa
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

Paper Moon from In the clouds on May 23, 2009:
I love this. Thank you for posting it! I am facinated by Hinduism. I am glad you included the video, it is nice to be able to listen to it.
easetravels from INDIA,TAMILNADU on March 05, 2009:
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.
Ease travels. Visit my hub if time permits.
Anamika S Jain (author) from Mumbai - Maharashtra, India on August 29, 2008:
Thanks for the response. I have a Hub on Gayathri Mantra as well. https://discover.hubpages.com/religion-philosophy/
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 ..
ASHWINSPGA from Lion City ( Singapore) on August 29, 2008:
Great work on the hub. can i know what is a Gayathri Manthra and any chance you know of it sister?
guidebaba from India on August 29, 2008:
That's Great Anamika. Even though I am an Athest, my sister does her prayers every morning.
