Please clarify if 1. Devi Suktam
2. Devi Kavacham
3. Argala Stotram
4. Keelakam
5. Ratri Suktam are to be recited everyday if we are reading the Devimahatmya in 7 or days in the given method, i.e. the Prathama, madhyama and uttara chapters.

Thanks. Ashok Sharma

Thanks for this help

Sir,

Can we read Durga Sapthashathi without fasting during Navrathri ? Is it enough if we recite Siddha kunjika Stotram after completing chapters of Durga Sapthashathi or we should also recite Argala Stotram
Keelakam, Ratri Suktam

With warm regards,
Lata

Can we read Devi Saptashati without fasting in Navratri and also perform Havan for 9 days i.e 1st day Shailputri Maa, to 9th day Siddhidatri Maa without fasting

Shiva Ram Baniya said...

@Lata It does not matter as far as I can say. The best thing is reciting everyday whether it is Navratri or not. Fasting is just the way of showing respect towards the Goddess on Navratri.

As in Siddha Kunjika Stotram Lord Shiva clearly states in the first paragraph that "no argala or kilak stotra and other related matters is needed if one recites Siddha Kunjika Stotra."

Furthermore, Lord Shiva says: Siddha Kunjika Stotram is enough to yield whole benefits of Durga SaptaShati.

This does not mean one should not recite the Durga SaptaShati. If you have time please read the Durga SaptaShati during Navratri. There are very interesting and powerful stotras about Divine Mother. The Mother says whoever read Durga SaptaShati during Navratri she will be very pleased and their all desires will be fulfilled.

When you recite with the basic principles of Hinduism on cleanliness and with profound love and respect for Divine Mother.

May Maa Durga Bless you with Love, Prosperity and Good Health.

Yes you can. There are few rules to follow such as bathing and Wearing new clothes. If you busy just read Siddha kunjika strotra. As Lord Shiva says: Siddha Kunjika Stotram is enough to yield whole benefits of Durga SaptaShati.

Hi Lata,
Yes, we can read Durga Saptashati in Navratri without fasting. There are so many ways to read complete Durga Saptashati but here is the correct way to read the Kavch.
