Goddess Durga reigns supreme as ther Mother Goddess, amongst the Goddesses worshipped by Hindus. Although there are innumerable forms of Goddesses and ultimately all are one, yet Durga-form is the most popular one. She is that Mother Goddess whose glory is ineffable. She is terrible, dreadful, kind-hearted, benign - all combined. Perhaps her form assimilates the varied concepts of Goddeses that have been prevalent from time immemorial. The description about Goddess Durga can be very well found in various Puranas and scriptures, but they are scattered. One who wishes to know more about Durga may not have access to all the referencesw regarding this Goddess. Among all the Mother Goddesses that are worshipped in India and abroad, Durga stands supreme.

Hymns and Orisons have been transcribed into the Roman script with diacritical notation to help the readers get the correct pronunciation. There are certain incantations in which pronunciation is more important than their meaning owing to its phonetic effect.
