Description

This Sanskrit mantra, also known as Chandi mantra, Navarna mantra or Chamundaye mantra, is a strong Tantric mantra dedicated to Mother Durga, one of the goddesses in Hindu tradition, a type of Devi, the supreme goddess.

In Hindu tradition, Maa Chamunda is also considered one of the seven Matrikas and an aspect of Maha Kali. Furthermore, the Goddess is one of the main Yoginis, a group of Tantric goddesses, who are attendants of the Supreme Mother Durga. In addition, the Goddess is occasionally identified with goddess Parvati, the Hindu goddess of love, fertility, and devotion.

Her name is a combination of Chanda and Munda, two notorious demons (asuras) which the Goddess killed. She was also assimilated in the Jain pantheon, where the rites of her veneration do not include liquor and meat offerings, but vegetarian offerings.

There is a temple dedicated to the Goddess, located on the top of Chamundi Hills, named – Chamundeswari Temple, and is approximately 13 km from the city of Mysore, India.

Iconography

She is usually depicted wearing a tiger skin and a garland of skulls, with 4, 8, 10, or 12 arms, and holding a trident (trishula), drum (damaru), a snake, sword, thunderbolt, khatvanga (skull-mace), a severed head, and a wine cup (panapatra) filled with blood. Additionally, the Goddess is described surrounded by many ghosts or skeletons.

Chamundaye mantra sadhana

You need to be dedicated and have a strong will in order to do this sadhana because you have to do it for 40 days without a single day of pause, no matter what! If you skip a day, it’s essential to start the sadhana from day 1, so that you achieve 40 days without a break. Reciting this mantra for 40 days locks in the powerful vibrations of the mantra and ensures the desired results.

There are two main methods to do a 40-day sadhana.

  1. You can recite the mantra all through the day as much as you can.
  2. You can recite the mantra 108 times in the morning and night. However, reciting the mantra in the same place and time every day, particularly early in the morning, before sunrise or after sunset, adds power to the practice.

Method

Sit in easy pose. If you cannot sit properly in meditation asana, you can sit on a chair. Just make sure that your back is erect, and you feel comfortable and relaxed in your sitting position. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. After, just observe your breath for 3 minutes. Don’t force it or add any frills to it.

Start to recite Navarna mantra slowly in your mind or as a whisper for 108 times. By reciting a Sanskrit mantra, you are actually tuning yourself to resonate at the same vibrational frequency as the mantra, or the specific deity connected with that mantra.

When you finish the mantra recitation, it is recommended to come out of the practice gradually. Ending the mantra meditation in a hurry is similar to standing up too fast, it can leave you a little off-balance.

During the practice, experiencing mind-wandering is perfectly normal (even for advanced practitioners). It is part of the process of spiritual awakening and it will happen many times. Hence, when this happens, just come back to the practice.
