Maa Durga Sadhana

             The other day I came across a quote in a book I am reading from the Durga Chalisa 'Jab lagi daya phal paoon, tumhro yash mein sada sunaoon.' (O Ma! Bestow upon me your grace as long as I live, so that I can always recount the feats of your glory to all.)  This quote struck a cord in me and I of course went in search for the rest of this beautiful prayer. In recent days I have become quite curious about this beautiful fierce Goddess. When I read this quote it occurred to me that perhaps she is trying to tell me something personally, as I have taken notice of her in recent days. I have now decided to memorize the Durga Chalisa...It is a lengthy prose and will take me some time to ingest all of it, but I am determined, as I make this my sadhana, in honor of Maa Durga. She is an amazing Devi and I look forward with great anticipation to learn about her and from her. I ask that she will bless me with mental clarity and purity of heart as her humble devotee. 

'Nirakar Hai jyoti Tumhari, Tihun lok pheli Ujayari.'
The radiance of your light is limitless and all pervading and all the three realms (Earth, Heaven and the Netherworld) are enlightened by thee.)

Jai Maa Durga!

    Namaste Nirvani,

    How wonderful for you, that Maa is calling you to Her! The previous commenter
    has a good idea, but also for your chosen sadhana, Anuradha Paduwal's performance
    of the Chalisa is very clear and will aid in memorization...
    Jai Mata Di, Jai Maa Durga!

  3. Thank you both very much for the recommendations! I most certainly will check them out, and I was wondering which version of the Chalisa I should use. I will certainly take your advice on this one:)

    Jai Maa!
