The Narayani Stuti is a devotional Hymn in praise of Devi Narayani[ another name of Durga Mata[, which is contained in the 11th Chapter of the most sacred and divine Hindu devotional composition, the Durgā Saptashatī, A few years back, I had written an article about the same half verse from the Narayani Stuti, which was described as an Sativk Mantra to gain Salvation or Mukti from all the unending problems of life and existence, including liberation and freedom from the cycle of life and death. That post and the Narayani Mantra can be see here- Liberating Mantra from Narayani Stuti
This Mantra is most suitable for students, scholars, researchers and those engaged in any kind of brain activity. Here, it should be kept in mind that the vibrations of this Mantra, if chanted for the purpose of gaining the cutting edge of superior intelligence will fulfill that purpose. Those chanting the same Mantra for getting Salvation can continue doing so as the Mantra is sure to grant them Mukti.
The Meaning of this verse from the Narayani Stuti in simple language is – “I pray to the Narayani who resides in the heart as superior intelligence, the ONE who give liberation and freedom”
Notes – As this is a Satvik [pure] Mantra from the Narayani Stuti, the chanter of the Mantra should refrain from harboring Tamas Guni or impure thoughts, wants, dreams and desires while chanting this Mantra.
In my opinion, there is no need to chant the Mantra for a fixed number of Mantra Repetitions per day, however, that depends entirely upon the wishes of the chanter. If you want to chant a fixed number of Mantra Chants, then chant the Mantra for 108 Repetitions or in multiples thereof using a Rudraksha Beads Japa Mala.
By Satvik, in the context of this Mantra Experiment, I mean pure of mind and thoughts. As this is a long term Mantra Experiment for the layperson to acquire a superior intelligence, whether to follow other restrictions or not like consuming non-veg food, smoking or consuming wine are left entirely to the wishes of the chanter.
