Ashtottara Shatanama

Shri Chamundeshwari Ashtottara Shatanama Stotram Lyrics in English

According to legends, many years ago, a buffalo demon named Mahishasura was wreaking havoc in heaven and earth. Brahma gifted a boon that he could be killed by no man.

For this reason, Mahishasura was slowly winning every battle she started. The Gods found a loophole to Brahma’s boon and goddess Durga was given divine powers to make her stronger than Mahishasura.

Goddess Chamundeshwari is a form of Durga. With her new powers and a lion as her vehicle, she fought Mahishasura atop a hill for ten days and finally killed him and the hill was named as Chamundi Hill. This day is celebrated as Dasara and symbolizes the victory of good over evil.
