Adya Stotram

दक्षसा दुहिता देवी दक्षयज्ञ विनाशिनी ।
रामस्य जानकी त्वं हि रावणध्वंसकारिणी ॥ १३॥
चण्डमुण्डवधे देवी रक्तबीजविनाशिनी ।
निशुम्भशुम्भमथिनी मधुकैटभघातिनी ॥ १४॥
विष्णुभक्तिप्रदा दुर्गा सुखदा मोक्षदा सदा ।
आद्यास्तवमिमं पुण्यं यः पठेत्ः सततं नरः ॥ १५॥
सर्वज्वरभयं न स्यात्ः सर्वव्याधिविनाशनम्ः ।
कोटितीर्थफलं तस्य लभते नात्र संशयः ॥ १६॥

You are Devi (Parvati), daughter of Dakshasaa,
You are Janaki of Rama. You are the one who slayed Ravana.
The slayer of Chanda and Munda, Raktabeeja, Nishumbha and Shumbha, Madhu and Kaitabh.
You are Durga, devoted to Visnu (literally: the giver of devotion to Vishnu), you are the dispenser of pleasure as well as salvation.
The human being who regularly recites this sacred hymn to Adya would be free from the fear of all types of fever. All his/her illnesses would be cured (destroyed). He/ she would receive the blessings equivalent to one who makes 10 million (innumerable) holy pilgrimages.
