What Rudrabhishekam is for Shiva, Chandi Homam is for Devi. It is performed by Six Pundits. Elaborate Devi pooja is performed. Devi is worshiped in the form of Lakshmi, Saraswati and Chandi. Durga Saptashati (Devi Mahatmyam) is recited fully and with each of the 700 slokas recital havan is performed and the Chandi mantra – Aim Hrim Klim Chamundaye Vichhe – is recited. After that Dampati pooja, Suhasini pooja, Kanya pooja and Brahmachari pooja are performed. It can also be done for a group of families together.
The core of the homam ceremony involves a recitation of the Durga Saptashati or 700 verses in praise of the goddess Durga. With the recitation of each verse, offerings are made in the sacrificial fire invoking the goddess.
The Durga Saptasati is 13-chapter narration from Markandeya Purana attributed to the rishi Markandeya. In a workbook-like, fascinating, allegoric way the verses demonstrate how the Goddess Chandi vanquishes and anihilates the two demons Shumbha (or Pride) and Nishumbha (or Shame), slaying the negativities of Indulgence and Denial, restoring the equilibrium necessary for perfection. By performing the Chandi homa, the sufferings that are caused by hostile elements are eradicated. The sufferings resulting from poison, sorcery, thieves etc. are removed by performing this homa.
