Durga Chaalisa



Durga Chaalisa is one of the most popular and common way of praying to Goddess Durga - the incarnation of Shakti. This forty verse prayer is sung in praise of the goddess and is a narrative of many of the divine incidents she committed. The goddess is addressed as mother in the prayer and is extolled for her moon like beaming face and the radiance she radiates on the entire Universe. All the power of the Universe is said to be placed in the divine Shakti Maa Durga. She is also hailed in her other form of Gauri as the consort of Lord Shiva. The goddess is also praised for assassinating the demons Shumbh-Nishumbha and Raktabeej thus saving mankind from the demons terror. One who recites the prayer with full concentration is said to be relived from the cycles of birth and death and attain ultimate Nirvana or moksha. Those who sing the Durga Chaalisa attain ultimate bliss as they are freed from all their afflictions and mother's grace is always on them.
