Durga Ashtottara Shatanamaavali - 108 names of Goddess Durga

img

The Shri Atha Ashtottara Shatanamavali Stotram is another one of the invocation Mantras of the Shri Durga Saptha-shati. In this Lord Shiva narrates to Mata Parvati the 108 names of Durga Mata by the means of which Durga or Sati can be pleased. Those who daily read these 108 names from Durga Stotram, find nothing impossible in the three worlds. They receive benefits like wealth, luxury, offspring and lineage, elephants, four things — dharma, artha, kaam, moksha, and in the end are liberated eternally.

So with hands clasped and a humble attitude we chant the auspicious Stotram of the Devi as written in the Chandi Paath (also known as the Durga Saptha-shati) of 700 verses found in the Markandaye Puran.
