Aim Hri Devi Namah:
Due to the eight arms of Mata Kushmanda, she is the Ashtabhuja Devi. Along with this, worshipping this form of Durga Maa destroys all diseases. If a person chants this mantra of Maa with full devotion, then Maa is pleased and blesses him with a healthy body.
According to Hindu religious scriptures, Mata Kushmanda means Kumhada, and Kumhada is also known as Kushmanda. Hence, this fourth form of Maa Durga is named Kushmanda. The incarnation of the Durga Maa took place to kill the demons. There it is believed that when this world did not even exist, only darkness was around. Then, Maa Kushmanda was born in the fourth form of the goddess to create this creation. For this reason, Durga Maa has also been called Adiswarupa.

Kushmanda jay jag sukhdaani
Mujh par daya karo maharani
Pingala jwalamukhi nirali
Shankari maa bholi bhaali
Bhaakt kayi matwale tere
Bheema parvat par hai dera
Swikaro pranam ye mera
Sabki sunti ho jagdambe
Sukh pahunchti ho maa ambe
Tere darshan ka mai pyasa
Purna kar do meri asha
Maa ke mann mein mamta bhari
Kyu na sunegi araz humari
Tere dar par kiya hai dera
Dur kaaro maa sankat mera
Mere karaj pura kar do
Mere tum bhandare bhar do
Tera daas tujhe hi dhyaye
Bhakt tere dar sheesh jhukaye
