Devya Dwadashanam Stotram

Devya Dwadashanam Stotram
This is a very beautiful creation of great poet Kalidas. This stotra is in Sanskrit. It describes the twelve very pious temples in India at the time of Kalidas. It is said that if anybody visits these temples, all his sin will be vanished.
1 Kanchipur is having a temple of Kamakshi Devi. Bhramari Devi temple is on the Malaya hills (on the border of Tamilnadu and Karnataka). KanyaKumari temple is in Kerala. In Aanart pradesh Amba Devi temple is there.
2 In Karavir (Kolhapur) Mahalaxmi temple is there. In Madhya Pradesh Kalikamata temple is there. In Prayag Lalitadevi temple is there. Vindhya Parvat (hills) is having Devi Nibidvasini temple.
3 In Varanasi Vishalakshi temple is there. In Gaya Devi Mangalavati temple is there. In Bangal Devi Sundari Devi is there and in Nepal Devi Guhyakeshwari temple is there.
4 Devi temples are famous on twelve places as described above and Goddess Devi is there. We become free from our sins when we visit these temples and take Darshan of Goddess Devi.
5 If it is not possible to visit these temples and we, early in the morning always remember and concentrate on Goddess Devi roopa; our sins are removed and we become free from bad effects of whatever bad things we have done.
Thus here completes Devya Dwadashanam Stotram written by Kalidas.

Thought for the Day
If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all.
---Martin Luther King Jr.
The secret of joy in work is contained in one word excellence. To know how to do something well is to enjoy it.
