Chapter 351 - Greatness of Kauraveśvarī (Kaurava-īśvarī)

[Sanskrit text for this chapter is available]

Īśvara said:

1. Thereafter, O great goddess, from thence one should go to Kauraveśvarī who was propitiated by Kuru himself, after whom Kurukṣetra is named.

2. She was propitiated by Bhīma after protecting the holy place (Kṣetra). A man who assiduously worships her on Mahānavamī (ninth day in the bright half of Āśvina), the auspicious deity protects him like her son. There is no doubt about it.

3. Meals should be served to couples there with heavenly eatables and excellent delicious food. There is no doubt that when eulogized she gets pleased.
