Navarna Mantra

Navarna Mantra (chamunda mantra or chandi mantra) is a most powerful mantra of Goddess Durga (or Chamunda Devi). Goddess Durga is a most powerful form of Universal feminine energy and with its blessings, practitioners can enjoy an improvement to all aspects of their life. It is not a mantra to bestow a single benefit, but rather to enhance the overall quality of life.

Through the protection of the goddess, all things will become possible for the devotee. Navarna Mantra is the basic mantra of the Shri Durga Saptashati Path


ॐ ऐं ह्रीं क्लीं चामुण्डायै विच्चे ।।

”Om Aim Hreem Kleem Chamundaye Vichche Namah.”
