  1. Sir,
    I have seen various kunjika stotra , since my childhood i have heard from my father this kunjika stotra which is exactly which is given above. Now my question is that which kunjika stotra is correct the one which i am chanting the one you have given above or the others so i am confused about it, because others are having SAME BIJ mantrAs but positioned differently.
    Thanks if you clear my doubt.


    • Namaste ,

      There are many versions of kunjikA stotra prevalent among different upasana mandalis and sampradayas so calling one version correct and another incorrect is not wise. Every version is correct in itself and serves a particular purpose , the mantras you mention belongs to a most common version of kunjika stotra and mostly published with chandi sapatashati . One should use version followed in his lineage ( so many people buy chandi book n starts recitation ) / deshAchara .
