Durga Chalisa in Hindi

॥दोहा॥
या देवी सर्वभुतेषु मातृरूपेण संस्थिता ।
नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमो नमः ॥

॥श्री दुर्गा चालीसा॥

नमो नमो दुर्गे सुख करनी । नमो नमो अम्बे दुःख हरनी ॥
निराकार है ज्योति तुम्हारी । तिहूं लोक फैली उजियारी ॥
शशि ललाट मुख महाविशाला । नेत्र लाल भृकुटी विकराला ॥
रूप मातु को अधिक सुहावे । दरश करत जन अति सुख पावे ॥
तुम संसार शक्ति लै कीना । पालन हेतु अन्न धन दीना ॥
अन्नपूर्णा हुई जग पाला । तुम ही आदि सुन्दरी बाला ॥
प्रलयकाल सब नाशन हारी । तुम गौरी शिव शंकर प्यारी ॥
शिव योगी तुम्हरे गुण गावें । ब्रह्मा विष्णु तुम्हें नित ध्यावें ॥
रुप सरस्वती को तुम धारा । दे सुबुद्धि ॠषि मुनिन उबारा ॥
धरा रूप नरसिंह को अम्बा । प्रकट भई फाडकर खम्बा ॥
रक्षा करि प्रह्लाद बचायो । हिरण्याक्ष को स्वर्ग पठायो ॥
लक्ष्मी रूप धरो जग माहीं । श्री नारायण अंग समाहीं ॥
क्षीरसिन्धु में करत विलासा । दयासिन्धु दीजै मन आसा ॥
हिंगलाज में तुम्हीं भवानी । महिमा अमित न जात बखानी ॥
मातंगी धूमावति माता । भुवनेश्वरि बगला सुखदाता ॥
श्री भैरव तारा जग तारिणि । छिन्न भाल भव दुःख निवारिणि ॥
केहरि वाहन सोह भवानी । लांगुर वीर चलत अगवानी ॥
कर में खप्पर खड्ग विराजे । जाको देख काल डर भागे ॥
सोहे अस्त्र और त्रिशूला । जाते उठत शत्रु हिय शुला ॥
नगरकोट में तुम्हीं विराजत । तिहूं लोक में डंका बाजत ॥
शुंभ निशुंभ दानव तुम मारे । रक्तबीज शंखन संहारे ॥
महिषासुर नृप अति अभिमानी । जेहि अघ भार मही अकुलानी ॥
रूप कराल कालिका धारा । सैन्य सहित तुम तिहि संहारा ॥
परी गाढं संतन पर जब जब । भई सहाय मातु तुम तब तब ॥
अमरपूरी अरू बासव लोका । तब महिमा रहें अशोका ॥
ज्वाला में है ज्योति तुम्हारी । तुम्हें सदा पूजें नर नारी ॥
प्रेम भक्ति से जो यश गावे । दुःख दारिद्र निकट नहिं आवे ॥
ध्यावे तुम्हें जो नर मन लाई । जन्म मरण ताको छुटि जाई ॥
जोगी सुर मुनि कहत पुकारी । योग न हो बिन शक्ति तुम्हरी ॥
शंकर आचारज तप कीनो । काम अरु क्रोध जीति सब लीनो ॥
निशिदिन ध्यान धरो शंकर को । काहु काल नहीं सुमिरो तुमको ॥
शक्ति रूप को मरम न पायो । शक्ति गई तब मन पछतायो ॥
शरणागत हुई कीर्ति बखानी । जय जय जय जगदंब भवानी ॥
भई प्रसन्न आदि जगदम्बा । दई शक्ति नहिं कीन विलंबा ॥
मोको मातु कष्ट अति घेरो । तुम बिन कौन हरै दुःख मेरो ॥
आशा तृष्णा निपट सतावें । मोह मदादिक सब विनशावें ॥
शत्रु नाश कीजै महारानी । सुमिरौं इकचित तुम्हें भवानी ॥
करो कृपा हे मातु दयाला । ॠद्धि सिद्धि दे करहु निहाला ॥
जब लगि जिऊं दया फल पाऊं । तुम्हरो यश मैं सदा सुनाऊं ॥
दुर्गा चालीसा जो नित गावै । सब सुख भोग परम पद पावै ॥

॥दोहा॥
देवीदास शरण निज जानी ।
करहु कृपा जगदम्ब भवानी ॥
