• What are the Rishi, Chanda, Mantra Devata, Bija, Shakti and Kilaka of the Chamunda Navarna Mantra?

Although aware of the popular opinion, this site mentions a completely different set of mantra-angas, unlike this one which confirms the traditional system.

  • Does the addition of Om change any of the above details (Rishi, Mantra devata,etc.)?

Some sources indicate that addition of the Pranava (Om) changes the mantra to the dasakshari Rama Tarana Mantra which was used to kill Ravana, and therefore changes some mantra-angas.

  • @Rickross bro which sastra describes navarna mantra in detail? I checked topics of devi bhagavat and it doesnt seem it is there. Read devi mahatmay once and dont remember it being described there also.

1 Answer 1


From the name of the mantra it follows that this mantra should be of nine syllables. If someone adds Pranava to it, then the number of syllables changes... In many Indian books of the 70-80s, this mantra is given without Pranava. Therefore, I join the question, I would like to see a text-tantra, where this mantra and its traditional description are first given.
