I came across 32 names Stotram of Devi Durga. Here is the reference.

Can anyone share the scripture reference? Is it present in Devi Bhagavatam ?

  • As i check the whole Devi Bhagavata and all the Puranas, there are no mention of Durga Dwatrimsha Namavali Stotra. Maybe, the Upa Puranas mention it.

  • I didn't know about the Tripurarahasya reference mentioned above. But these 32 names are present in Durga Sapsasati from Geeta Press.

Durgādvātriṃśatnāmāvalī occurs in the 46th chapter of Māhātmyakhaṇḍa of Tripurārahasya.

अथापि त्वां सुपृच्छामो जगद्रक्षणहेतवे । विपन्नं त्वं कथं शीघ्रं प्रसन्ना रक्षसीश्वरी ।। एतन्नो ब्रुहि देवेशि रहस्यमपि सर्वथा । प्रार्थितैवं सुरगणैः प्राह दुर्गा दयान्विता ।। देवाः शृणुध्वमेतत्तु गोप्यमत्यन्तदुर्लभं । द्वात्रिंशन्नाममाला मे सर्वापत्प्रविनाशनी ।।

Translation : 'O Iśvarī ! Now we ask you for the sake of protecting the world - How can you be quickly propitiated in order to protect the distressed ? Please do tell us even if it happens to be highly secretive.' Thus on being asked by the devas, Bhagavatī Durgā endowed with kindness said, 'O devas ! Hear my very secret & esoteric 32 names that destroys all calamities.' [Tripurārahasya:Māhātmyakhaṇḍa:46:89-91]

The 7 verses you mentioned occur as verses 93 to 100 which follow the section cited above as given here

  • I have Tripura Rahashya. It has 22 chapters. I guess, Tripura Rahashya Mahatmyakhanda is a different book. Can you please add a link? Commented Mar 29 at 13:59
  • @AmritenduMukhopadhyay I think that you might have the Charya Khanda or the Jnana Khanda from Tripurarahasya masquerading as the entire book. The link to the Mahatmya Khanda with Sanskrit text & Hindi translation is provided in the main answer.
