Devī Māhātmyam ~ Caritam 2

with Swami Sharadananda Sarasvati, Acharya CIF

at

Adi Sankara Nilayam

(Maternal brith home of Śrī Ādi Śaṅkarācārya)

Devī Māhātmyam:

This text describes the Goddess as ‘Śakti’, the Supreme power and creator of the Universe. This text, composed in Sanskrit, is part of the MārkaṇḍeyaPurāṇa and consists of 13 chapters and 700 mantras. It is also known as Durgā Saptaśati or Caṇḍī-pāṭha. In most parts of India, it is the most renowned text dedicated to the worship of Devi Durgā, and it is recited during Navrātrī celebrations and the Durga Pūjā festival.

The Devī Māhātmyam recounts a victorious battle between good and evil, where the Devī manifesting as Goddess Durgā leads the forces of good against the demon Mahiṣāsura.  In peaceful times, states the text, the Devī manifest as Goddess Lakṣmī, empowering wealth creation and happiness. The verses of this story also outline a philosophical foundation. It also describes reverence and worship of the feminine aspect of God. It is often ranked to be as important as the Bhagavad-gītā.
