Durga Sapta Sloki

 

The Durga Sapta Sloki (Seven verses to Durga) was taught by the Goddess herself to Lord Shiva, to realize our objectives in the Kali age. This is also called Amba Sthuthi. These seven verses are a selection from the Devi Mahatmya. It is believed that reading these verses is equivalent to read the full text of Devi Mahatmya.
