Maha Kausika Mantra ||134||
1Brahma said: -Now I shall recite the Maha-Kausika Mantra, which ranks foremost in respect of merit.
2[Here follows a recitation of the Maha-Kausika Mantra]. Om Mahakausikaya namahi, Ombum hum praspura lala lala kulva kulva kulva aulva culva khatta mulva mulva gulva gulva tulva tulva pulla pull a dhulva dhulve dhum dhum dham dham maraya maraya dhakadhaka vajnapayavaniapaya vidarayavidaraya kampa kampa Kampayakampaya purayapurya avesayavesaya om hrirh om hrirh ham vim varh hum tatatata madamada hrimom hiim nair rtaya namahi nirtaya datavyam.
3An animal consecrated with the Maha-Kausika Mantra should be sacrificed at the south-west angle of the sacrifical ground, and the rite of ceremonial ablution should be done unto the king in front of the sacrificial offering. The king should cut with one blow of his sword a rice paste image of his adversary, bits of which should be dedicated to Skanda and Visakha.
4-5The Matrikas should be worshipped in the night by reciting the Mantra, with runs as, “Obeisance to Brahmani, Mahesi, Kaumari, Vaisnavi, Varahi, Mahendri, Camunda, Candika, Jayanti, Mangala, Kali, Bahdrakali, Kapalini, Durga, Siva, and Svadha.”
6-7The image of the Goddess should be bathed with milk, and virgins, maidens, Brahmanas and Candalas should be sumptuously fasted and propitiated with money gifts. By worshipping the Goddess with the offerings of banners, poles, cars, cloths, etc., under the auspices of the Maha-Navami, a votary can win kingdoms and victories in war.
