Chandi Saptashati Parayanam Homam - Resolves Challenges, Grants Materialistic & Spiritual Boons
Saptashati Parayanam Homa is dedicated to the powerful form of Durga. It addresses the problems of joblessness by clearing all obstacles, it also bestows a trouble free life and puts your career on the path to progress.
It refers to the thirteen chapters taken from Devi Mahatmyam that pays obeisance to the goddess who removes fears and blesses us with grasping powers of knowledge.
The thirteen chapters are divided into three parts – Prathama, Madhyama and Uttara. The first chapter explains the glory of Maha Kali, the second and third and fourth chapters glorify Goddess Maha Lakshmi and the last nine chapters from fifth to 13, describe the glory of Saraswati.
This divine compendium is a guidance of what man should do to attain salvation. It helps to resolve all problems and bestows both materialist and spiritual boons.
Also called the Chandi path, Saptashati when recited, makes you unconsciously aware of the presence of the divine power that guides you out of all troubles.
It says that it attracts the minds of the intellects or Gnanis so that they are obsessed with the Goddess. It helps destroy fear among the mortals and provides auspiciousness as they meditate on her sensibly. She is readily available to ward off fears, sorrows and adversities of her admirers. It describes her as Shiva Swarupa, and fulfils all wishes.
The Chandi Saptashati Parayanam involves the recital of the 13 chapters in which 700 verses exist. After reciting each chapter the priests will offer Purnahuti, which are sacred offerings, to the homa kunda while chanting specified mantras. The mantras are very powerful that they not only purify the space but also satisfy one’s desire. Finally, after the Parayanam of the 13th chapter is completed, a Maha Purnahuti will be carried out by offering a red sari to the most benevolent goddess Mother Chandi.
