Vipareeth Prtayangira stotra

(The opposite Prathyangira prayer)


Given by


Sri Yogeswaranand ji

(Prathyangira devi is also known as Atharvana Bhadra Kali  and also as Narasimhika devi. There are various stories about her origin. It seems after Lord Nrasimha killed Hiranyakasipu, his anger grew unboundedly. The devas tried all their best to calm him down . When Prahlada and Goddess Lakshmi were not able to pacify him(Many people believe that they individually were able to pacify him), , Lord Shiva took the incarnation of Sharabha deva a mixture of man, lion and eagle. He also failed. Then Goddess Parvathi appeared from the ferocious eyes of Sharabha deva) with 1008 heads and 2016 hands and roared ferociously. This pacified Lord Narasimha. Other believe that Goddess Lakshmi took a form of woman lion and(also called Prathyangira) and pacified him.

   This stotra is addressed to Prathyangira devi requesting her grace to kill our enemies. Please do not chant this Manthra without getting it from a Guru. It is believed that if it is not done that way,  such trials would lead   to very horrible effects. The Hindi version of this great manthra is given in

Please shower your grace on me, Oh Bhadarakali,
