Why to read Durga Sapta Shloki:
This Sapta Shloki Durga Stotra is in Sanskrit and was recited to Bhagwan Shiva by Durga Mata herself. The Durga Saptashloki Stotram, is an alternate prayer for Durga Saptashati or Chandi Path stotram which is revered as the most important text during Navratri Durga Puja.
One day Lord Shiva asked Durga to tell him what his devotees should do to achieve success in their endeavor easily and without any troubles?
Durga Mata gave him the secret of the Durga Sapta Shloki saying that by reciting these 7 slokas with faith, devotion and concentration they will receive all her blessings and will be successful in their every endeavor. Besides they will receive wealth, health, good memory, knowledge, success, good family life and victory. All their troubles, fear, sorrow and poverty will be removed from their life.
