आश्विनशुक्लप्रतिपदे अमुकवासरे प्रारभमाणे नवरात्रपर्वणि एतासु नवतिथिषु
अखिलपापक्षयपूर्वक-श्रुति-स्मृत्युक्त-पुण्यसमवेत-सर्वसुखोपलब्धये संयमादिनियमान् दृढ़ं पालयन् अमुकगोत्रः
अमुकनामाहं भगवत्याः दुर्गायाः प्रसादाय व्रतं विधास्ये।

●  In case you observe the fast for 1, 2, or 3 days ,. days, the Mantra will be changed a bit. On the day of the fast, the Mantra will be recited with the name of the Tithi instead of एतासु नवतिथिषु.
●  For example, Mantra for observing a fast on the seventh day will be recited as below:

ॐ विष्णुः विष्णुः विष्णुः, अद्य ब्राह्मणो वयसः परार्धे श्रीश्वेतवाराहकल्पे जम्बूद्वीपे भारतवर्षे,
अमुकनामसम्वत्सरे आश्विनशुक्लप्रतिपदे अमुकवासरे प्रारभमाणे नवरात्रपर्वणि सप्तम्यां तिथौ
अखिलपापक्षयपूर्वक-श्रुति-स्मृत्युक्त-पुण्यसमवेत-सर्वसुखोपलब्धये संयमादिनियमान् दृढ़ं पालयन्
अमुकगोत्रः अमुकनामाहं भगवत्याः दुर्गायाः प्रसादाय व्रतं विधास्ये।
