Kirata Varahi Stothra
[Prayer to Varahi the Huntress]
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
[This is the KIRATA VARAHI STAVAH which is used for subjugation of one's enemies (satru vashya and satru samhara). This stotra is used for counter attacking the abhicharika prayogas and is proved to be very effective. Care should be taken in parayana of this stavah. Since I could get only Romanized version of the stotra, many words are not clear to me. I have tried the best guess them. In spite of that some of the translations are still not clear. Hope readers would pardon me for that and help me by sending the correct meaning as when they find them.]
