SAPTA SHLOKI DURGA STOTRA

SAPTA SHLOKI DURGA STOTRA
This Sapta Shloki Durga Stotra is in Sanskrit and it is told to Bhagwan Shiva by Durga Mata herself. Shiva asked Durga “tell me what your devotees should do to achieve success in their endeavor easily and without any troubles?”
Durga Mata told him that my devotees may worship me by reciting 7 slokas with faith, devotion and concentration. By doing this they will receive all my blessings and will be successful in there every endeavor. Besides they will receive wealth, health, good memory, knowledge, success, good family life and victory. All their troubles, fear, sorrow and poverty will be removed from their life.
Many Durga devotees read Durga Sapta shati on many occasions in a year. However all devotees can’t read it since it is very difficult and is of 700 stanzas. It takes about 4 to 5 hours to complete it. So for such devotees this Sapta Shloki Durga Stotra is an alternate. These 7 shlokas of the stotra are from Durga Sapta Shati only. They can recite this stotra daily with faith, devotion and concentration.
