Navarna Chamunda Mantra
 
The Navarna mantra, also known as the Chamunda Mantra is the most important mantra of the secret ChamundaTantra (Method).

The brevity and simplicity of the mantra belies its power. While every mantra has its own unique effect that is derived from the resonance set up by the sound waves and vibrations that emanate from its chanting and this mantra attains its power due to its completeness in harnessing the power and energy of the Divine mother. However due to the power of this mantra, proper pronunciation and utterance are essential to attaining the right results. Its effect can be changed even with small changes in the ending of each word. So it is essential to be initiated into this mantra with the right guidance so that positive effects may be obtained.

The mantra gains its power because it describes the nine varnas (forms) of BhagwatiJagadamba (Goddess of all Creation). In essence the mantra encapsulates the full embodiment of Parashakti (Supreme Power), who is the Supreme Creator of the Universe, Being the creator of the universe she is also our supreme mother and is thus also known as Paramba (Supreme Mother). In this form she protects her sadhaks (aspirants that yearn to rejoin her) just as a mother looks after her children. Just as a mother changes roles in caring for her children, from a loving mother to a teacher to a disciplinarian, thus the Divine Mother also takes many forms so as to truly care for the children of her creation.

In this divine and balanced combination of the three forms of the Supreme Mother, she is also called BhagwatiChamunda. In the ancient text, the MarkandeyaPurana, the great sage RishiMarkandeya says that this form of Devi forms an essential part of the MritunjayaMahadev (Shiva that has overcome death). Shakti, the female energy is an essential part of Shiva, and while Lord Shiva takes care of his devotees, he can only do so because as ArdhaNarishwara (balanced masculine and feminine), Shakti is an essential part of him. Thus all Shiva devotees also need to worship Shakti.

The navarna mantra is powerful because it is composed of Beeja (seed) mantras of the nine forms of Devi, navarna literally meaning nine forms, nava (nine) and varna (form).
