Kalika Sahasranamam Kakaradhi Audio

In a previous post, we had dealt with the regular Sahasranamam for Kalika Devi which is the thousand name hymn for Kalika Devi; that was a discussion between Lord Shiva and Lord Parasurama.
 Here in the Kalika Devi Kakaradhi Sahasranamam, we will be dealing with another thousand name hymn for Kalika Devi which is from Rudrayamala. It must be noted that in the Kakaradhi version dealt with here, all of the names start with the letter “Ka”. This is a powerful shlokam and in the early part of this hymn, Kalika Devi says that “My ‘roopam’ or form is of the letter Ka”. I have really enjoyed singing this hymn and is my offering of respects and love for Kalika Devi.

This is a long hymn. I must give credit to Kishore, my brother-in-law for providing me this stotram. It gives me joy to listen to it and hopefully you will enjoy it too!

And now the audio: 44 minutes and 11 seconds long.

NOTE: BECAUSE THIS IS A VERY LARGE FILE ABOUT 40 MEGABYTES, YOU WILL HAVE TO DOWNLOAD AND THEN LISTEN. On mobile devices and some computers, you may get the message -- This file is too large for Google to scan, download anyway? -- You will have to answer "YES" and then listen after download. On some computers, when you hit the play button, if nothing seems to happen, click the Download arrow at the top, click download anyway and then listen. Sorry for the inconvenience -- but this is a big file and praise to Sri Kalika Devi -- Her Grace is magnificent !

I have made a pdf copy of the shloka in Sanskrit and it can be found below:

Om Shree Kalika Devi Namo Namaha !
