Mangala  Chandika stotram

Translated by



(The text  of this stotra is given  in  various ways in different places  and I have pieced  out the complete prayer by consulting various places.  The text in Sanskrit is  given in Slightly different text is given in along with meaning in Marathi and English(incomplete)  There are many claims that  this stotra is an antidote to the Mangalya dosha in the horoscopes.  There is no mention about this in the text.  The word “Mangala  indicates “Auspiciousness”  as well as “Planet Mars”  and  this prayer is recommended to be chanted on Tuesdays.  The confusion must have come from this.)



Om Hreem sreem kleem sarva poojye devi  Mangala Chandike,

Iym kroom  phat swahethyevam cha apya ekavinsakharo Manu.

Poojya kalpa tharuschaiva Bhakthaanaam sarva kamadha,

Dasa laksha jape naiva manthra sidhir bhave nrunaam,

Manthra sidhir bhavedh sa Vishnur Sarva Kamadha,

Dhyanam cha sruyathaan Brahman Vedoktham sarva sammatham,


If Man worship s with the twenty one lettered Chant,

“Om Hreem, Sreem , Kleem  Sarva  poojaye devi Mangala Chandike , Iym  kroom phat  swaha

She who is  like the wish fulfilling tree  to him who worships , would fulfill all  the wishes of that  devotee,

And if he chants it ten lakh  times , he would be able to master all occult powers,

For with  the mastery of this chant ,  Lord Vishnu attained  all his wishes,

 And Lord Brahma meditating and hearing it, was recognized by the Vedas.




Devim Shodasa  varsheeyaam , sarva susthira youvanam,

SArva roppa gunadyaam cha komalaangim manoharaam,

Swetha champaka varnaam ,  Chandra koti SAmaprabham,

Vahni shudhaam sukhaadhaanaam, rathna bhooshana  bhooshithaam,

Bibrathim Khabari baaraam mallika malya vibhooshithaam,

Bimbhoshtim sudathim shudhaam  sarad Padma nibhaananaam,

Eesha dwasya prasannasyaam Suneelothphala lochanaam,

Jagat dhatrim cha dhatrim cha Sarvebhya sarva sampadaam

SAmsara sagare ghore potha roopaam varaam bhaje.



Deyascha dhyana  mithyevam  sthavanam  sryathaam mune,

Prayatha sankata  grastho yena  thushtava Sankara.


The goddess is of sixteen years age ,  and is blessed  with permanent youth,

She is blessed with all forms and  all good qualities, she has pretty form, she steals the mind,

She is of the colour of White Champa flower, she has the sparkle of billions of moons,

She wears cloth purified by fire and wears  ornaments studded with gems,

She is bent due to the weight of her breasts  and wears  the garland of jasmine,

She has lips of the colour of Bimba fruit, she has good teeth, she is pure and is like the lotus flower of autumn.

She looks pleased with a  slow  smile  and has eyes which are like blue lotus,

She is the mother of the universe, she is the mother  and always gives wealth to all,

And  she is a boat to cross  the ocean of domestic life and is blessed and I salute her.


Oh sage let  the meditation and worship for her  begin and please hear her prayer,

And thus Shankara  made those caught by sorrow as happy.
