Her boar face indicates that She can dig deep into our karmas and will remove all the hurdles affecting our success in all matters.

Hey goddess, Who is with a very angry face,
Since I have devotion to your lotus like feet,
Any one who thinks of troubling me, by body, words or mind,
Should become extremely sad, beaten by your very dangerous iron plough,
And should become one from whose body the Soul starts to depart.

Pradhur bhootha nrusamsa bhava malinam, vruthim vidathe mayi,

Hey goddess because I have lost all sins due to devotion to your lotus like feet,
He who observes dirty behavior towards me due to cruelty,
Should fill your drinking goblet by the blood of his heart,
And also please grant me all my desired objectives.

Because of meditating on you, after the great wonderful,
Powers which have dawned in me,
I offer at your feet the souls of my evil enemies, which were stolen by me,
By drinking the alcohol of their constant spurt of blood,
Caused by breaking the hearts of my enemies by your fierce and upturned face,
Accompanied by horrifying shouts which,
Emanates due to your zest from you from time to time.

How can the enemies of those extremely devoted to you.
Who is black, who has lotus like feet and face,
Who wears the crescent of the moon,
Who caries with her a plough and an axe
As well the sign of terrorizing fear,
Who carries blood dripping skulls,
And who has the face of a wild boar,
Live for at least a few seconds?
Viswadheeswara vallabhe vijayase yaa thwam niyanthrathmika,
Bhoothaanam purushayushaavdhi karee paka pradha karmanaam,

Victory to you, Mother, who is,
The darling of the lord of the universe,
Who controls the lives of all beings,
Who also exists as the killer of all beings,
Who controls the span of life of all men,
And who grants suitable rewards for action performed.
I request you Oh Goddess, that the life span of my enemies,
Should be as long as I desire, based on your orders.
Matha samyagupasithum jadamathisthwam naiva saknomyaham,
Yadhapya anwitha daisikangri kamalanukrosa pathrasya may,

Bhooya devi virodhino mama cha they sreya pada sangina., 6
Oh mother, as I am a fool, I am not capable of,
Properly worshipping you at any time,
Still having received the blessings of my guru,
I pray that any one who wishes bad things for me,
Should go to hell as he is my enemy,
And also pray that all the fame should come to me,
As I am a great devotee of yours.
Varahi vyadha mana manasa galath soukhyam thadasa balim,
Seedantham yama prakruthadhya vasitham prapthakhilolpathitham,
Krantha- th bandhu janai kalam kitha kalam kandavrunodhyath krumeem,
Pasyami prathiakshamasu pathitham brantham ludantham muhoo., 7
Hey Varahi, I who am devoted to you,
Should see my enemy with a sad mind,
Full of disappointment, very feeble and tired,
Made scared by the servants of god of death,
Full of all miseries and liabilities,
Surrounded by crying relatives,
And only contributing blemishes to his family.
Varahi thwamasesha janthushu puna pranathmika spandhase,
Shakthi vyaptha charachara khalu yathasthwamethadhabhyarthaye,
T- hwath padambhuja sangino mama sukruth papam chikeershayanthi ye,
Thesham mama kuru Sankara priyathame, dehantharava sthitham., 8
Hey Varahi, Because of the fact that,
By your own power you have spread yourself,
In all beings and you exist as the form,
Of Soul in all beings and make them throb,
I request a favour from you,
If any one wishes any bad things on me,
Who is the devotee of your lotus like feet,
You should not live within him any further.
Foods for Navratri Fasting: During the fast of Navratras, foods like Sabudana Vada (Sago Vada), Sabudana khichadi (Sago Khichadi), Singhare Ka Halwa (Water Chestnut Flour Halwa), Kuttu Ki Poori (Grass Seed Flour or Buckwheat poori), and Singhare Ke Pakore are preferred for eating.
The science behind Navratri Celebration:
When climate changes, the body is affected and it gets more prone to different kinds of bacteria. This leads to various mental disorders as well as health problems. To prevent these unwanted situations ancestors had created the system of Navratri. Scientifically when climate changes, the negative impacts affect female brains the most. Females become psychologically more weak and reactive. The ones who already have mental disorders face major problems during Saptami. To eradicate these problems ancestors had invented the process of Navratri where fasting is the major requirement. Our ancient solutions say that mental disorders happen due to problem indigestion or food habits.
Hence, it is advised to consider keeping fast or eating in small quantities, throughout the period of Navratri. It is better if you can follow the process of fasting or minimal eating in the fou Navratri’s as it will keep you extremely fit and attract positive energies towards you.
