ऊँ नमश्चण्डिकायै

नमो देवि महामाये सृष्टिसंहारकारिणि।

अनादिनिधने चण्डि भुक्ति मुक्तिप्रदे शिवे।।

Hail! O Goddess Mahamaya, the creator and destroyer of the universe.

You are without beginning or end, O Chandi! Bestower of worldly pleasures as well as liberation. O most auspicious Shiva! I offer you my obeisances!

Once more, the month of Chaitra brings Ma Durga’s divine fragrance!

As Mother Nature gracefully unfolds her enchantment, the sacred Sadhana- Sthal of Sri Badrika Ashram warmly welcomes Ma Durga’s children.

In its consecrated environs invoke the nine resplendent forms of Ma Durga and establish Her on the lotus of your hearts.

Dive deep into Divine Mother’s loving embrace during the auspicious nine nights and days of the spring Navratras and watch the divine alchemy of intense chanting and devotional yagyas transform your life.
