For praising and worshipping Goddess Shailputri a melodious enchanting Mantra has been considered:

ॐ देवी शैलपुत्र्यै नमः॥[1]

वंदे वाद्द्रिछतलाभाय चंद्रार्धकृतशेखराम |

वृषारूढां शूलधरां शैलपुत्री यशस्विनीम्‌ ||

या देवी सर्वभू‍तेषु माँ शैलपुत्री रूपेण संस्थिता। नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमो नमः||

When the devotees will praise her by this Mantra she will bless the lives of people and shower the love on us…
