    It is a beautiful stotra. Whenever I listen this also got in tears. According to greenmesg website it is created by Ramakrishna kavi or Adi Shankaracharya. Commented Mar 20, 2018 at 14:34

    Yes Many say it is by Adi Shankaracharya And RamaKrishna who was greatest devotee of Devi. This stotra encompasses almoat all great glories of Devi and Her form and Beauty. It is extremely poetic containing Onomatopoeia , Oxym Metaphor, Alliteration ..... It feels like getting intoxicated with the nectar falling from the strings of lotus like words of this stotra.
