The story of Hreeng, Durga Saptashati

Another of my favourites, Devi Mahatmya or Durga Saptashati. This is collection of about 700 mantras each one of them very powerful, very cleverly disguised as a story on how Devi Mahamaya kills negative entities/Asurs. It is just like the terribly beautiful Devi wearing her hair in 2 plaits and going to kindergarten wearing a pretty polka dotted frock. This book is more appropriately translated as “The story of Hreeng”, the beej mantra of the Devi, very terrible and utterly beautiful. In north India, people are scared to even keep a copy of this in their houses which is beyond my understanding. (I keep a copy at my bed-side).

So most would know that this book is read like a story during the Navratris and there are pujas involving mantras from this book which can be very beneficial. But for normal people who do not have so much time here are a few quick ways in which you can make use of these mantras most effectively.

The story of Hreeng, Durga Saptashati

First and foremost before you use any mantra from this collection, read the Siddhakunjika stotra once, and then recite the navavarna mantra, ‘Om Aing Hreeng Kleeng Chamundayae Vicche’ 108 times. Use your fingers to count the 108. Now this mantra is so utterly powerful that you can use it to create trouble for your enemies or gain Moksh for  yourself or anything else you desire. So treat it with proper respect, pay attention to the pronunciation. Do this on a Friday evening in the bright half/Shukla paksha of the month if possible when you do it for the first time. Any  mantra to be used from Devi Mahatmya should be sandwiched between ‘Om Aing Hreeng Kleeng Chamundayae Vicche’, for it to be of any use.

Now here is the pdf of the Durga Saptashati of the book with the translations in Hindi, turn to page 263 in this book. This is a list of some of the mantras which you can use in your daily life listed with what they can be used for. This is how you should be using them. Eg, For removal of enemies and troubles it is simply given as, “Sharanagata deenarta paritrana parayane sarvasyarti hare devi narayani namostute”. This is to be recited like this, “Om Aing Hreeng Kleeng Chamundayae Vicche” once, then “Sharanagata deenarta paritrana parayane sarvasyarti hare devi narayani namostute” recited 108 times, followed by “Om Aing Hreeng Kleeng Chamundayae Vicche” once. This sandwich pattern is called, “samputit”.

I have used small sections of this book to do Homa. I love Tantrokta Ratri Sukta it resonates very deeply with me. I have done Homa using this mantra several times. For doing homam/yadnya you should add “swaha” to the end of every couplet/shlok/mantra and drop a drop of ghee in the sacred fire/Agni. (My son loves eating the vibhutis from my homa. He is like an indicator, if I have done the homa with single minded attention and love for Devi Mahamaya it tastes wonderful if not then it tastes bad!)

Tantrokta Ratri Sukta

Then a rather secret way of using the mantras from the book. But gives an unbelievable boost of energy and a life time of asset. You start with the Siddhakunjika as usual. Then choose your intention mantra. Eg. For removal of enemies as above, it is, ‘Sharanagata deenarta paritrana parayane sarvasyarti hare devi narayani namostute’. So you will alternate this intention mantra and the mantra in sequence from the book. Be ready to speak continuously for over 4 hours, cannot stop, cannot drink water and cannot get up. But you will have no enemies for a life time. If you do not have any specific problem that you want the Devi to address, you should recite, “Om Aing Hreeng Kleeng Chamundayae Vicche” as your intention mantra alternating it with each mantra from the book.

Our ancient seers have left us with such an awesome legacy! The understanding that everything is energy. If you can manipulate your energy you can be always happy and healthy. One of my cousins is a homeopathic doctor, if he falls ill, rather than taking his medicines, he just visualises himself taking the medicine and is back to his healthy self in the morning.

You have everything within you, all the 108 elements, and your body knows what it needs and also can make it for itself. Your body mind and soul can repair yourself in all possible ways. It just needs energy and intention. Use the mantras from this book and don’t be scared of the Devi. She is your Mother, ask anything of Her, pester Her, demand to be picked up in Her arms. She loves you, Love Her in return!

    Ma’am, how can one reverse business losses and convert them into profits due to price of the commodity crashing by almost 60%?

    Can I chant shlok no 24 for “Baadhamukt hokar dhan putraadi ki prapti ke liye”? in the sandwich manner that you’ve written about?

    Also, can you please give us a Youtube link for Siddhikunjika Stotram for better grasping of pronounciation?

    Thanks in advance!

    (Also, if you can suggest some Reiki/Dowsing/Tarot methods to suggest healing. I might not be able to establish a crystal grid due to regular dusting and. housekeeping).

    Thanks again!

    Can you please tell the meaning of “kram krim hrum hrim kalikaye hum phat”? (I am not sure about correct spelling)

    Also only this “Om Aing Hreeng Kleeng Chamundayae Vicche” specific mantra should be used for sandwich or other mantra like the above one? Or there are many other Kali mantra too…

      Hi there
      ‘hum phat’ mantras are used to cut through things, use them with due care

      I havent heard of this mantra which you have quoted so cannot comment on it

      the durga saptashati mantras works only with the navavarna mantra

      do not experiment or mix and match with mantras from here and there as there can be serious repercussions,
      if you do mix and match it is between you and your conscience..

      and navavarna mantra is not ‘just another Kali mantra’..

        Can you give example, in what scenario “hum phat” mantra supposed to be used?

        Hi there
        i do not recommend mantras which have ‘hum phat’ in them for general use..
        they generate explosive cutting energy..

    Few says navavarna mantra is durga mantra while few says it’s Kali mantra. What is truth?

    How to pronounce Kali beej mantra; krim or kreng, hum or hung, hrum or hrung, hrim or hreng?

    Also is bindu/dot should be pronounced as ‘ang’ in every case or there are rules associated with it?
