Lyrics

siddha kunjika stotram

(The song which gives the key to perfection)

siva uvaca (siva said)

smu devi pravaksyami kunjika stotram uttamam yena mantraprabhavena candijapah subho bhavet

(Listen, Oh Goddess, while i elucidate the excellent song which gives the key to perfection. By means of the brilliance of these mantras, the meditation of the goddess Chandi becomes easy)

na kavacam nargala stotram kilakam na rahasyakam na suktam napi dhyanam ca na nyaso na ca varcanam

(Not the armor, nor the praise which unlocks the bolt, nor the praise which removes the pin, nor the secrets: neither the hymns, nor even the meditations, nor the establishment of the mantras into the body nor the offering of worship and adoration)

kunjika patha matrena durga phalam labhet
ati guhyataram devi devanamapi durlabham

(The recitation of the mantras which give the key will grant the fruits of the recitation of the glory of the goddess. Oh Goddess, this is extremely secretive and difficult even for the Gods to attain.)

gopaniyam prayatnena svayoniriva parvati maranam mohanam vasyam stambhanoccata nadikam
patha matrenam mohanam vasyam stambhanoccata nadikam
patha matrena samsiddhyet kunjika stotram uttamam

om aim hrim klim camundayai vicce om glaum hum klim jum sah jvalaya jvalaya jvala jvala
prajvala prajvala aim hrim klim camundayai vicce jvala ham sam lam ksam phat svaha

namaste rudra rupinyai namaste madhu mardini namah kaitabha harinyai namaste mahisardini

namaste sumbha hantryai ca nisumbhasuraghatini

jagratam hi maha devi japam siddham kurusve me aimkari srsti rupayai hrimkari prati palikwa

klimkarf kama rupinyai bija rupe namo stu te camunda canda ghati ca yai kari varadayini

vicce cabhayada nityam namaste mantra rupini

dham dhim dhum dhurjateh patni vam vim vum vagadhisvari
kram krim krum kalika devi sam sim sum me subham kuru

hum hum humkara rupinyai jam jam jam jambhanadini
bhram bhrim bhrum bhairavi bhadre bhavanyai te namo namah

am kam cam tam tam pam yam sam vim dum aim vim ham ksam
dhijagram dhijagram trotaya trotaya diptam kuru kuru svaha

pam pim pum parvati purna kham khim khum khecarf tatha

sam sim sum saptasati devya mantra siddhim kurusva me

idam tu kunjika strotram mantra jagarti hetave abhakte naiva datavyam gopitam raksa parvati

yastu kunjikaya devi hinam saptasatim pathet na tasya jayate siddhir aranye rodanam yatha

om aim hrim klim camundayai vicce
om glaum hum klim jum sah jvalaya jvalaya jvala jvala prajvala prajvala aim hrim lim camundayai vicce jvala ham sam lam ksam phat svaha.
