Mantra: या देवी सर्वभूतेषु लक्ष्मी रूपेण संस्थिता | नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमो नमः | नमस्तेस्तु महामयी श्रीपीठे सुरपूजिते | शङ्खचक्रगदाहस्ते महालक्ष्मी नमस्तुते       

Translation: May the ever victorious Siddhidayini Ma Durga, who is always worshipped by the hordes of siddha, gandharva, yaksha, asura, and Deva, bestow success at my every venture.
