Chapter 4 English 61 5. Uttara Charitam Sanskrit 63 5. Sri Sri Chandi should be read with firm faith, devotion and correct pronunciation. During the time of reading, one should not talk, think, sleep, sneeze, yawn or spit, but read with full concentration on Devi in the form which appeals to him.
He should not stop in the middle of a chapter and the book should be placed on a stand, preferably a copper plate. At the beginning and end of each chapter bells are to be rung. Before reading, it is necessary to do the Sankalpa and Sri Devi Puja. Devi Tithis are Ashtami, Navami and Chaturdasi. The reading should be in the following order: Phala Sruti and 8.
The first chapter contains the glory of Maha Kaali, the 2nd, 3rd and the 4th chapters glorify Sri Maha Lakshmi, and the last nine chapters from the 5th to the 13th, glorify Sri Maha Sarasvati. He who reads Sri Sri Chandi with faith and devotion attains health, wealth, long life and salvation. These Slokas express the truth realised by Vak, who identifies herself as Brahma Sakti, and expresses herself as 11 Rudras, 8 Vasus, 12 Adityas and all the Devas,—Indra, Agni and Asvini Kumaras—who are sustained by Her and She is the source, substratum and support of the whole world.
She is verily Brahmasvarupini. This Kavacham armour protects the reader in all parts of his body, in all places and in all difficulties. Every part of the body is mentioned and Devi, in all different forms, is being worshipped. Further, Devi, in different names, is prayed to for happiness, wealth, health, power and prosperity.
Here Rishi Markandeya is telling his disciples in 27 inspiring couplets on the greatness of Devi. She has been described in all aspects and names and at the end of each Sloka, prayer is offered to Devi for material prosperity, physical fitness, fame and victory. Here also Rishi Markandeya tells his disciples in 16 Slokas the ways and means of removing obstacles faced by devotees while reading Devi Mahatmya.
Reading of Keelakam brings blessings of Devi and spiritual harmony and peace of mind and success in all pursuits. Ratri Suktam 8 Slokas has been taken from Rig Veda, 10th Mandala, 10th Anuvaka, th Sukta, which shows that Devi was worshipped from time immemorial. Devi is described as the all-pervading Supreme Lord of the Universe appearing in Omkara. Ratri means She who fulfils our prayers.
The Devi Mahatmya or the Durga Saptasati is a unique book in this world. It is the base and the root of the religion of the Saktas. It is a Kamadhenu for one and all; it gives whatever man wants.
It gives Bhakti in this world and Mukti afterwards. It is a powerful reservoir of Mantras from the beginning to the end. Every verse of this text is a dynamic force which acts powerfully in overhauling the nature of man.
The first verse of the text implies that the whole book is an explanation of the root of the Devi-Mantra, viz. There are many commentaries on this text which explain it either in a mystical way or in the ordinary manner.
The Devi Mahatmya
Whatever be the case, the Mantras of the Saptasati are not to prarthaan neglected by one who wishes to lead a good and peaceful life in this world. The conception of the Infinite as Mother is not an altogether meaningless one. The Rigveda bears testimony to the fact that even in such ancient times, there was the persistent belief that the Ruler sansskrit the All-compassionate Mother. Further, Mother is the personality that appeals most to the human heart, not so much the Father who is considered a hard task-master.
Moreover the conception of the Divinity as Devi, Durga or Sri, is not merely a theory but a practical way of life.
It is a particular view which cannot be set aside. It is as important as any school of religious belief, and is one of the most important reigning branches of Vurga religion—Vaishnavism, Saivism and Saktaism. Even a subtle philosopher cannot dispense with the conception of Sakti, for he is essentially an embodiment of Power, and he has love for power.
Navratri Special : ‘Durga Saptshati’ – SPIRITUAL WORLD
The highest Intelligence and the most speculative metaphysics is only a manifestation of Jnana-Sakti and is not outside the range of Saktaism. Let us therefore adore and worship the Glorious Mother for the purpose of ksahma Wisdom or Self-realisations. The Saptasati may be read daily so as to be completed in seven days in the following manner of division of chapters: This is the traditional rule.
The Saptasati may be read with any motive in the mind, and that shall be fulfilled. Read it for any purpose in life, and that you shall have. Read it for the sake of Spiritual Knowledge, and you will be blessed with it. The whole man is but Sakti, and hence he shall have everything through worship of Sakti. May the blessings of Devi Durga be saptawhati you all! May She bless you all with spiritual illumination and Self-realisation! Since the dawn of civilisation, when the primitive man lived in a matriarchal society, the worship of the Divine Mother came into practice.
Later on, as civilisation progressed, the matriarchal pattern gradually faded out, and the saptashari became the head of the family unit, where he was treated as the man in authority ksuama to whom every one looked for guidance and approval. Consequently there was a change in the concept of God as such; the Fatherhood of Sanskfit was xaptashati. But Mother-worship persisted simultaneously, since this concept was psychologically more appealing to the devotee, the Mother being nearest in filial affection to the child.
Subsequently, a sympathetic harmony between the Motherhood and Fatherhood of God was developed by the Hindu religion; the people worshipped Sita and Rama, or Radha and Krishna, together. The concept of the human mind is based on relative experience. Subjective idealism, therefore, in its initial stages, takes the aid of objective and relative analogies.
God is neither limited to abstract or concrete concepts.
But it is easier to establish a conscious relationship with the Providence in terms of benevolent fatherhood or affectionate, kindly motherhood than by the concept of an unfathomable void. God is devoid of qualities, in reality, but a relative superimposition of the positive ideals of goodness and virtue is essential for self-culture and spiritual progress of the aspirant.
Mother is very kind to her child. You are more free with your mother than with anybody else. It is the mother who protects you, nourishes you, consoles you, cheers you and nurses you.
She is your first preceptor. She sacrifices kshamq all for the sake of her children. In the spiritual field also, the aspirant has very intimate relationship with the Divine Mother. The Upasana or the saptashagi of the Universal Mother leads to the attainment of the knowledge of the Self. The Yaksha Prasna prartgana Kenopanishad supports this view.
Approach Her with an open heart. Lay bare your mind with frankness and humility. Let your thoughts be pure and sublime. Become as simple as a child. Pulverise your individual entity, the egoistic nature, cunningness, selfishness and crookedness.
Make a total unreserved, ungrudging self-surrender to Her. Worship Her with faith and unflinching devotion. Durga Puja or Navaratri is the most suitable occasion for doing intense Sadhana. These nine days are very sacred to Mother. Plunge yourself in Her worship. It is an occasion symbolising the victory of the higher, divine forces over the lower, negative qualities that find their expression in injustice, oppression, aggrandisement, greed, selfishness, hatred and a host of other undivine forces that add to the suffering of man.
Worship the Mother in all Her manifestations. She is the creative aspect of the Absolute. She is symbolised as Cosmic Energy. Energy is the physical ultimate of all forms of matter and the sustaining force of the Spirit.
Energy and Spirit are inseparable. They are essentially one. The five elements and their combinations are the external manifestations of the Mother. Intelligence, discrimination, psychic power and will are Her internal manifestations. Humanity is Her visible form. Service of humanity is, therefore, the worship of the Divine Mother. Feel that the Mother sees through your eyes, hears through your ears, and works through your hands. Feel that the body, mind, Prana, intellect and all their functions are Her manifestations.
The one, universal life throbs in the heart of all. How can there be any room for hatred and selfishness, when by hating another you are but denying your own self. Drive deep this consciousness within your heart. Always meditate and practise this ideal of divine oneness.
