(Victory be with you, Chamunda Devi, Bhutaapaharini, All Pervading Devi,  Kaalarathri, Vishwa murthi Swarupa, Embodiment of Propitiousness, Essence of Purity, Virupakshi, Three Eyed, Personification of Terror, Arch-type of Auspiciousness, Source of Knowledge, The Great Illusion; You are as fast as mind, Victorious by nature, berserk by behavior, Strange by demeanour, Lover of Music and Dance, Vikaral, Maha Kali, Sin expunger, Kalika, Sporter of ‘Pasha’( rope) and club by hands, Originator of ferocity and panic; You are highly illuminated by face, Maha Balavati, seated on dead bodies, Prethas and images of Pisachas, horror-eyed, Bhayankar, Vikaral Kaala Swarupa, Archtype of gallantry and ferociousness, Blazing Faced One, My Greetings, You are the Universal Benefactor! Rudra commended Chamundi Devi with the above Stuti or eulogy; He said that whoever reads or hears it would be blessed by Him and Devi as well.)

Those who pray to the Tri Shaktis in the Three Profiles with sincerity and mental application would secure boons for excellent well being, offspring and prosperity. Observance of Tri Shakti Vratha on Ashtamis, Navamis and Chaturdasis by fast and worship would help retrieve even lost Kingdoms or secure Kingdoms anew and similarly retrieve or gain great opportunities of life. There would be no threat of fire, theft, serpents or any such untoward occurrences by merely preserving the Tri Shakti Stothras  in any household. Reading the Stothras would certainly help secure the following:  Pasum, Puthram, Dhanam, Dhanyam, Varastriyah, Rathnaashva Gajaa yanaaswashu bhavanthuta yasyedam thishathey gehe thasyedam jaayathey dhruvam ( Cattle, Sons, Money, Beautiful women, Jewellery, horses, elephants, servants and Vaahanams would be possessed in those houses and this is certain).       [ Essence of Varaha Purana]
