Keelaka Stava

ll Keelaka Stava ll

Om. The seer of this Keelaka hymn is Shiva, meter is Anushtup, Mahasarasvati is deity, for the appeasement of Jagadamba the recital of this appendix to Saptashati is a must.

Om prostrations to Chandika.

Sage Markandeya said:
Om. Pure consciousness is whose body, three Vedas are whose three divine eyes, who is cause of attainment of Moksha and whose forehead is adorned by a crescent moon; my prostrations to that Lord Shiva. 1

Know this Keelaka hymn as the destroyer of obstacles for the fulfilment of all other Mantras. He/she who recites this Keelaka hymn, he/she obtains boons. 2

Know that this Keelaka hymn destroys the obstacles on the path of gaining Siddhis. When The Supreme Mother Goddess is praised by this Chandi hymn with utter devotion, occult rites like hypnotism etc bear fruits. 3

That person obtains success of rituals, without any intervention of any Mantra, herbs or any other commodity. 4

“Whether the recital of Saptashati bestows choicest boons or not?”- upon learning of this renowned doubt amongst people, Lord Shiva summoned all and proclaimed “this great hymn (Saptashati) is the best granter of auspiciousness. 5

Then He kept this hymn to Chandika in utmost secrecy. After reciting this hymn (Saptashati) accompanied with Sadhana performed as per ordained rules, the Sadhaka by his/her virtues attains the Supreme Mother Goddess. 6

Thus, know it verily without any doubt that the Sadhaka is blessed. The person who on Krishna Paksha’s Ashtami or Chaturdashi recites or hears Saptashati with utmost devotional frame of mind and observance of all prescribed rituals, Chandika gets pleased with him/her; not by any other means. With this Keelaka hymn, Lord Shiva subdued (read gained grace of) Chandika. 7-8

The person who by reciting this Keelaka hymn defeats the subduing power (Maya) of Chandika and then recites Chandi (Saptashati) everyday with clear intellect and pronunciation, he/she for sure becomes an attendant of The Supreme Mother Goddess like a Siddha or a Gandharva in his/her next birth. 9

That person’s duties are never incomplete and he/she has nothing to fear. He/she is not subjected to untimely death and upon death, he/she attains Moksha. 10

With the knowledge of the meanings (both literal as well as esoteric), one must recite Chandi (Saptashati) only after reciting this Keelaka Hymn. One who disregards this, all virtues of his previous Chandipath gets destroyed. Only after being fully aware of this fact, the scholars after reciting Keelaka hymn recite Chandi with the knowledge of its meaning. 11

The fortune of the women is a result of Chandipath. Thus, one must recite this auspicious hymn daily. 12

Barely audible recital of Chandi results into ordinary (material) outcomes and perfectly audible recital results into extraordinary (spiritual) outcomes. Hence, one must audibly recite Chandi. 13 

If by grace of Chandika one can attain prosperity (spiritual knowledge), fortune (of being spiritually conscious), longevity (immortality) and destruction of (six) enemies, then why shouldn’t people recite Chandi? 14

The person who remember Chandika always in his/her heart, his/her all heartily desires get fulfilled and The Supreme Mother Goddess always resides in his/her heart. 15

First subdue Chandika with this Keelaka hymn composed by Lord Shiva that destroys the obstacles in attaining Siddhis, and the recite Chandi with its meaning in a correct frame of mind. 16

Thus ends Keelaka Stava.
