Our Beloved Family,
We love you very much and we send our blessings to you all.
Congratulations on the completion of Navaratri and the celebration of the birth of Ram!
Shree Maa is still in India, and will be back when circumstances permit, but we do not yet have an exact date because of the various lockdowns around the world. She is safe and comfortable, and still is enjoying worship and sat sangha along with devotees.
Swamiji is still taking care of his Mother in Southern California, and performed the Navaratri vow of worship there.
We know these are very difficult times as the world comes to a standstill to fight the spread of this virus, so we want to send some words of encouragement to you all.
In challenging times like these, it is important for spiritual seekers to maintain our light in the world. Please continue with a positive attitude, be grateful for what you have, share your light to others, and pray for the health and well being of humanity at large.
We have given you three very special mantras from the Chandi Path, translated by Swamiji (source: Devi Mandir Publishing). We request that you all chant this 108 times per day. (Insert Sankalpa link, or insert mantras)
These mantras can heal the body from disease, reduce difficulties in life, and bring peace to the world. Please don’t chant just for yourself – chant for the well being of your family, friends, acquaintances, all those who are suffering, and all of humanity.
Please note that Shree Maa and Swamiji are having daily online satsangha. Please join us HERE every day at 8:00 PM PST for the US; 8:30 AM India; and 4:00 AM UK to listen to Swamiji read the Chandi Path in English and talk about its meaning.
Or you can listen to the recorded classes after they are posted any time at your convenience by clicking HERE, or by going to: https://soundcloud.com/devi-mandir.
Shree Maa and Swamiji send you all blessings. Happy Navaratri. Vijaya Bhava!
PLEASE CHANT EACH MANTRA IN SUCCESSION 108 TIMES PER DAY
रोगनशेषानपहंसि तुष्टा ।
रुष्टा तु कामान् सकलानभीष्टान् ।।
त्वामाश्रितानां न विपन्नराणां ।
ruşţa tu kāmān saklānabhişţan
tvāmāśritānām na vipannrānam
tvāmāśritā hyāśraytām prayānti
When you are pleased you destroy all infirmities, and when you are displeased you frustrate all desires. No calamity or disease befalls those who take refuge in you, and those who take refuge in you invariably become a refuge for others.
सर्वाबाधा प्रशमनं त्रैलोक्यस्याखिलेश्वरि ।
एवमेव त्वया कार्यमस्मद्दैरिविनाशनम् ।।
sarvā bādhā praśamanam trailokyasyākhileśvari
evameva tvayā kāryam asmad vairivināśanam
Oh Spirit of the Supreme Sovereign, terminate all disturbance in the three worlds, and in like manner, remove from us all hostility.
ॐ दुर्गे दुर्गे रक्षिणि हुँ फट् स्वाहा
oṃ durge durge rakṣiṇi hum̐ phaṭ svāhā
Oh Durga, oh Durga, protect me, and keep me safe. Cut the ego, purify, I am One with God!
