To the Divine Goddess who resides in all existence in the form of universal mother
To the Divine Goddess who resides in all existence in the form of energy

There are various Mantras which are recited to revere the 'Mother' or 'Ma' as every devout Hindu calls Her.
<span>Below I present some:</span>
<span>1) Asato Ma sadgamaya    Tamaso Ma Jyotirgamaya    Mrityur Ma Amritam gamaya</span>
<span>Which means:  From untruth, lead me to the Truth,  From Darkness, Lead me towards the Light,  From Death, Lead me to Life Eternal.</span>
<span>Ma does not mean 'mother'..its an 'avyaya' used for negation (write Mayank)</span>
<span>2) Sharanaagata dinaarta    Paritraana paraayane    Sarvasyaarti harey Devi    Naraayani namostute</span>
<span>Which means:  Salutations be to you, O Mother  You who are intent on saving the downtrodden  and distressed that come under your refuge.  Oh Devi! you remove the suffering of everyone</span>
<span>The following Mantra of Ma, is one of my favourites as it can be said anytime of the day, and anytime during your life, to pray for benediction for yourself and all your loved ones.</span>
<span>3) Om Sarva mangala Maangalye    Shivey Sarvaartha Saadhikey    Sharanye Trayambikey Gauri    Naraayani Namostutey</span>
<span>Which means:Oh Gauri Ma!, consort of Lord Shiva,You, who bestow auspiciousness on all,And fulfill everyone's' wishes,I prostrate myself before Thee,Take me under your care.</span>
<span>The following Mantras describe the various qualities of Ma:I have picked up 3 and I generally like to say them during Navratra as they are rather simple to remember and recite:</span>
<span>4) Ya Devi Sarvabhuteshu    Shakti Rupena Sanshtita    Namastasyai Namastasyai Namastasyai    Namo Namaha</span>

Which means:Prostrations unto Thee, O Devi (Ma)who dwells in all beings in the form of Shakti (Energy)
5)Ya Devi Sarvabhuteshu    Budhi Rupena Sansthita    Namastasyai Namastasyai Namastsyai    Namo Namaha

Which means:Prostrations unto Thee O Devi (Ma)who resides in all beings as Intelligence (Wisdom)
6)Ya Devi Sarva bhuteshu    Laxmi Rupena Sansthita    Namastasyai Namastasyai Namastasyai    Namo Namaha
Which means:Prostrations unto Thee O Devi (Ma)who resides in all beings in the form of Laxmi (abundance
