It is the most exalted practice of Ambastuti which holds the place of pride amongst sacred practices recommended for this period which is supposed to be invested with the power to fulfill all the wishes of the worshipper even in this unworthy age of Kaliyuga.

The Goddess of Durga is described as Sarvaswarupa (the one with every kind of form), Sarveshwari (the one who observes the function of all) and is possessed of all the divine powers and attributes. Goddess Durga can destroy all the illnesses and physical maladies of her devotee.
Goddess Durga has 108 divine names and merely remembering which or chanting the holy names can remove all the sufferings and bless the devotee with wealth and prosperity.
