DEVI DURGA

Shri Durga Maa

Devi, the Mother Goddess is the symbol of all the auspicious and true qualities which define the Supreme Being. Of all her forms, Devi Durga is the ultimate representation of infinite power, purity and strength of purpose, which resides within the divine essence of every being. In Hindu symbology, negative qualities within the individual such as excessive ego, anger, attachment etc are presented metaphorically as demons. The narrative of Devi Durga's destruction of these demons epitomizes the inner spiritual struggle of the individual soul as it strives to conquer ignorance and having gained victory realizes the Supreme power of one's own Self.... The Shlokas which accompany them have been taken from the Chandi Path, an ancient compilation of verses in praise of the resplendent Mother.

She with the gloriously
resplendent countenance
the destroyer of the great ego,
is seated upon the lotus of peace.
In her hands, She holds
the rosary of alphabets,
the battle axe of intellectual discretion,
the club of perfect articulation,
the arrow of logical speech
the thunderbolt of lustrous illumination,
the lotus of universal peace,
the bow of unwavering determination,
the water of ultimate purification,
the staff of resolute discipline and energy,
the sword of devoted worship,
the shield of unshakable faith,
the conch of harmonious music,
the bell of continuous tone,
the nectar of joy,
the pointed spear of concentration,
the manifestation of universal oneness,
the discuss of infinite revolving time.
I worship that great Goddess
of true spiritual wealth
