Sri Durga Saptashloki

Durga Saptashloki (7 set of 2-line verses describing Goddess Durga) has been something that my mother has always asked us to read / listen.

To gain powers of Durga Maa, devotees recite this regularly with devotion. It helps win battles & gives victories in all work.

Goddess Durga who is also identified as Adi Parashakti, Devi, Shakti, Bhavani, Parvati and by numerous other names. She is a principal and popular form of Hindu goddess. She is the warrior goddess, whose mythology centers around combating evils and demonic forces that threaten peace, prosperity and dharma of the good. She is the fierce form of the protective mother goddess, willing to unleash her anger against wrong, violence for liberation and destruction to empower creation. Durga is depicted in the Hindu pantheon as a goddess riding a lion or tiger, with many arms each carrying a weapon, often defeating Mahishasura (lit. buffalo demon). She appears in Indian texts as the wife of god Shiva, as another form of Parvati or mother goddess.

Sharing the above rendition that I like (amidst other similar ones on youtube).
