Hi All

I have come across two ways of pronouncing Navaran Mantra:

Om Aim Hreem Kleem Chamundayaee Vicchae

and

Om Aing Hreeng Kleeng Chamundayaee Vicchaee

which one is correct?

Just letting you know, I don't have a guru and I don't believe that one HAS TO HAVE a guru for a mantra to be given to self. Guru is important, but let's leave that conversation for some other time.

Pranam

There are lots of crazy transliterations of Sanskrit on the web … following according to IAST - International Alphabet of Sanskrit Transliteration

oṃ aiṃ hrīṃ klīṃ cāmuṇḍāyai vicce

Who wrote your second example - Om Aing Hreeng Kleeng Chamundayaee Vicchaee - tried to show the nasal sound of ṃ with ng.
