Varahi Japam

Goddess Varahi is the 5th in the dasha mahavidya order. A google search for Goddess Varahi will bring many representative pictures for information.


Steps to do varahi japam for 5 days are as follows:

  1. On the first day:
    1. offer one or more of the following depending on the convenience (definitely 1 sweet item):
      1. jaggery water (गुड़ का पानी / பானகம் / బెల్లం నీరు / ಬೆಲ್ಲದ ಪಾನಕ),
      2. curd vada, (दही वड़ा / தயிர் வடை/ పెరుగు వడ/ ಮೊಸರು ವಡಾ),
      3. curry using sweet potato (शकरकंद / சர்க்கரை வள்ளி கிழங்கை /ಕಬ್ಬು ಯಾಮ್ /చిలగడదుంప), or
      4. Moong daal sundal (चने / கோசு மல்லி / వడపప్పు /ಕಡಲೆಬೆಳೆ ಕೋಸಂಬರಿ) – soak moong dal in water till it is soft, add diced cucumber, a pinch of salt, and a piece of green chili. The same food item prepared during Rama Navami.
    2. Chant this mantra in your mind for 1008 (or as much as number of) times for those days:
      1. ऊँ ऐं ह्रीं श्रीं ऐं ग्लौं ऐं नमो भगवति वार्ताळि वार्ताळि वाराहि वाराहि वराहमुखि वराहमुखि ।
      2. ஓம் ஐம் ஹ்ரீம் ஶ்ரீம் ஐம் க்ளெளம் (gloum) ஐம் நமோ பகவதி வார்தாளி வார்தாளி வாராஹி வாராஹி வராஹமுகி வராஹமுகி.
  2. On the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, days, continue the chanting this mantra with one of the above offerings to Varahi maa.
  3. On the 5th day, chant this mantra and make a substantial food offering.


Following are the some of the benefits of doing the japa:

  1. Enemies would stop troubling the devotees,
  2. Devotees who are on the righteous path and who have been wronged unfairly would be protected, and
  3. Overall prosperity for the family.

Goddess Varahi could bless us with many more as she is compassionate mother.

May Goddess Varahi bless all of us with her infinite grace.
