Devi Upanishad – Wikipedia
I am atharvashiirsha bliss and non-bliss. I am knowledge and non-knowledge. I am Brahma and non-Brahma the non-manifest state called Abrahma. I am the five primordial principles and non-principles. I am the whole perceived Universe. I am Veda knowledge about Brahma and non-knowledge. I am learning and ignorance. I am unborn and also born. I am up, down and in the middle. I move about in form of Rudra and Vasu.
I move about as Aditya and all the Gods. In me there are Soma, Tvasta, Pusha and Bhaga. In me there are Vishnu atharcashirsha wide footsteps, Brahma and Prajapati. I am the Empress of this whole Universe.
I give wealth to worshippers. I am the observer and the first amongst those worth worshipping. I create on myself as basis of all the primordial elements. My abode is in the waters of Samudra the ocean of consciousness. One who knows this obtains divine wealth. Then the Gods said: Salutations to the Goddess, the Great Goddess. Salutations always to the goddess who is beneficial to all.
Salutations to the athsrvashirsha who is the Nature and is graceful. We, followers of rules, pay our respects to Her. Salutations to You, with color of Agni, shining with knowledge, bright, being worshipped to obtain fruits of actions, we are in telhgu refuge. Oh Devi, destroyer of evil, salutations to You. The Gods created the shining Vak Goddess of speechwhich is spoken by animals of all types.
She gives food, all kinds of perceptions, intelligence, pleasure, bliss and strength. Let Vak be satisfied by our prayers and come near us. To Kalaratri the Dark Nightto the power of Vishnu, prayed by Vedas, to the mother of Skanda Parvatito Sarasvati power of Brahmato the mother of gods Aditi, atharvashirshha the daughter of Daksha Satito the destroyer of sins, to the beneficial Bhagvati, we convey our salutations.
We know the Mahalakshmi and meditate on Her, the all-powerful one. May that Goddess direct us in correct direction. Oh Daksha, your daughter Aditi gave birth to immortal Gods, worth praying. Now is illustrated the highly secretive Shrividya Panchadashi Mahamantra, a 15 lettered mantra.
The mantra gives the following letters for meditation: These are the root knowledge about the Mother of the universe. This is a very important mantra for Atharvashireha but has to be learnt from a guru. She is the power of Paramatma. She is the one to bewitch all. She shines with noose, goad, bow and arrows in her hands. She is Shri MahaVidya. One who knows this well overcomes sadness. Oh Bhagavati, salutations to You. Oh Mother, protect us in all ways.
She is the eight Vasus. She is the eleven Rudras. She is the twelve Adityas.

She is the all the Gods, drinking Soma or non-drinking. She is Satva, Rajas and Tamas. She is Brahma, Vishnu and Rudra. She is Prajapati, Indra and Atharavshirsha. She is the planets, stars and constellations. She is various measures of Time.
She is destroyer of sins, giver of both enjoyment and Moksha, without end, giving victory over distractions of Samsara, pure, worth taking refuge, giver of peace, peace personified, we pray to Her.
This mantra is able to satisfy all desires. Those Yogis whose mind is pure, meditate on this one syllable Brahma, they are having devvi happiness and like an ocean of knowledge. This navarna nine-lettered mantra gives pleasure, bliss, and nearness the meditator to Brahman. T he knowledge that atarvashirsha consciousness. Creation, rajo guna, the energy of desire. The all pervasive existence. P reservation, sattva guna, energy of action. The all consuming delight.
Destruction, tamo guna, energy of wisdom. I worship the Goddess staying in the middle of my Self or mindbright as the morning Sun, who is holding Pasha and Ankusha in her hands, with beautiful looks, with the hand in Varad blessing and Abhaya protecting mudra, with three eyes, with red cloths and who satisfies the desires of her worshippers. I offer dev to the Goddess who destroys fearsome troubles, who eliminates obstacles and who is the personification of compassion.
We do not find aatharvashirsha limit, so she is called Ananta. We can not find the meaning, so she is called Alakshya.
Her birth is not known, so she is called Aja. She is found everywhere, so she is called Eka, the One. She has taken up all the various forms, so she is called Naika. Because of this she is called these various names. Amongst the mantras She is the original sounds, in the words She is the essence of knowledge. Amongst the knowledge She is beyond what is comprehensible by analysis and by deep meditation, She is the witness to that state.
She is well known as Durga, there is nothing better than her. I, afraid of the Samsara, offer my salutations to Durga, difficult to know, destroyer of sins and pilot while crossing this sea of Samsara.
One who studies this Atharvashirsha gets credit for reciting it five times. One who establishes and worships an image without knowing this Atharvashirsha will not get any benefit, even if doesrecitations. Repeat this times, that is the method of Purascharana.
Even repeating ten times makes him free of sins due to the grace of Mahadevi. By chanting this hymn in the evening, one gets rid of the sins committed during the day. By chanting this hymn in the morning, one gets rid of the sins committed during the previous night. By tlugu this hymn in teligu morning and evening everyday one becomes free from all sins. By chanting this during the Turiya Sandhya midnight when Turiya meets Turiyatitaone gets Vak Siddhi power of speech.
By chanting this hymn, Devata Sannidhya presence of divinity is accomplished in a new idol. By chanting this mantra during yoga one escapes from the great death.
In this way this Upanishad is the dead of ignorance.
