Most auspicious Sri Shyamala Gupta Navaratri starts from 22nd Jan till 30th Jan 2023. These 9 days are very effective to receive Divine Mother Shyamala Devi's Blessings. Śrī Shyamala Devi also known as Sri Matangi Devi is the tantric Sarasvati or the Goddess of Knowledge, both spiritual and material, speech, writing, as well as of all scientific and literary art forms.

Many Devotees who are not initiated into Shyamala Devi Mantras or unable to read her Stotrams can still be immensely benefitted during these powerful days by just reciting the following 16 names of Divine Mother. SHE is very fond of these names and it is written in scriptures that by just reciting these 16 names, Devotee/Sadhaka will be able to rule the 3 worlds. The following namas are already provided in the website as a stotram called śrī śyāmalā ṣoḍaśanāma stotram. Devotees can either recite the stotram or if they want to recite the namas as mantras can do as per the below procedure

After that show dhoop (incense stick), Gheep deepa arathi, offer Naivedya(Prasad) & show Karpoora Arati.
