Durga Gayatri Mantra
The Durga Gayatri is a variation of the Gayatri mantra designed to address Goddess Durga, particularly during the period of Durga Navaratri or Durga Puja. The Durga Gayatri adapts the 24-syllable metre of the original Gayatri to invoke the Goddess.

AUM kaatyaanaaya viddhamahe
kanyaakumaarii dhimahi
tanno durge prachodayaat


The three sandhyas (transition periods) of dawn, noon and dusk are appropriate times to chant the Durga Gayatri. According to tradition, 108 repetitions are recommended during each period of chanting. However, if one is constrained by time, this number may be reduced to any multiple of 9 (9, 18, etc.).

Meaning and Interpretation of Durga Gayatri:


AUM = the universal pranava mantra
kaatyaa-naaya = She who was born in the hermitage of Sage Kathyayana
vid-dhamahe = the omnipresent one
kanya-kumari = the one who is the "princess" among "girls"
dheemahi = give us the strength to meditate
tanno = we bow before you
durge = Goddess Durga, the inaccessible one
pracho-dayaat = give us blessings and inspiration.
