(Explanation for this mantra: There are three krīṁ-s, which represent creation, sustenance and dissolution. After this, there are two hrīṁ-s, which represent process of creation and process of sustenance. Then there are two hūṁ-s, which provide knowledge (towards emancipation). Name of the Devi mentioned here ensures closeness to Devi. Name of the Devi is encased (sampuṭīkaraṇa) with these bījākṣara-s, which makes this mantra powerful.)
