Siddhakunjika Strotam – Best prayer in paucity of time
The Siddhakunjika Strotam occurs in Sri Durgasaptasati in the Devi Mahatmya section of the Markandeya Puran. The recitation of the whole of Durgasaptashati with Kavacham, Argala and Keelkam should be the general practice. The recitation should be followed by Rahasyam.
Shiva disclosed to Parvati that the recitation of Siddhakunjika strotam alone is sufficient for obtaining the blessings of goddess Durga. The recitation of this Stotra should generally be done before beginning the recitation of complete Durga Saptashati because the group of mantras belonging to the Kunjika represent the essence of the holy scripture.
॥ सिद्धकुञ्जिकास्तोत्रम् ॥
शृणु देवि प्रवक्ष्यामि, कुञ्जिकास्तोत्रमुत्तमम्।
येन मन्त्रप्रभावेण चण्डीजापः शुभो भवेत॥1॥
Sidha Kunjika Stotram
Shiva Uvacha: –
Srunu devi pravakshyami Kunjika stotram uthamam,
Yena matra prabhavena chandi Japa Shubho Bhaveth.
Shiva Said. Oh, Parvathi please hear the great prayer called Kunjika. By recitation of which, the recitation of Devi Mahatmya (Chandi). Would become more powerful / auspicious.
न कवचं नार्गलास्तोत्रं कीलकं न रहस्यकम्।
न सूक्तं नापि ध्यानं च न न्यासो न च वार्चनम्॥2॥
Na kavacham, Na argali stotram, kilakam, na rahasykam,
Na sooktham Napi dhyanam cha na nyaso na cha varchanam.
There is no need to recite Kavacham, Argalam, Kilakam and the Rahasya. Nor is it necessary to recite Suktham, Dhyanam, and Nyasam and also no need to worship.
(These are preliminary stotras that need to be recited before reading of Devi Mahatmyam / Chandi / Durga Sapthasathi. Here is it told that if this Kunjika Stotram is recited then there is no need to recite all these)
कुञ्जिकापाठमात्रेण दुर्गापाठफलं लभेत्।
अति गुह्यतरं देवि देवानामपि दुर्लभम्॥3॥
Kunjika pata mathrena Durga phalam Labheth,
Athi Guhyataram devi, Devanam abhi durlabham.
Just by reading Kunjika, we would get the effect of reading Chandi. And Oh, Goddess this is a great secret and even Devas do not know it.
गोपनीयं प्रयत्नेन स्वयोनिरिव पार्वति।
मारणं मोहनं वश्यं स्तम्भनोच्चाटनादिकम्।
पाठमात्रेण संसिद्ध्येत् कुञ्जिकास्तोत्रमुत्तमम्॥4॥
Gopaneeyam prayathnena swayoniriva Parvathi,
Maranam, Mohanam Vasyam Sthambho ucchadanadhikam.
Pata Mathrena sam sidhayeth Kunjika stotram uthamam.
