We hope you find inspiration in this collection of poems, written by Devi Mandir devotees from around the world.
We are very happy to share this blog with devotees. Shree Maa suggested daily chanting of 3 malas of the Devi Prapannarti Hare mantra from the Chandi Path. May Mother fill our hearts with peace as we fulfill Her wish.
Oh Beautiful Mother !
Oh Beautiful Mother!
You always give refuge
To your children in need,
Oh Glorious Mother!
You provide a shelter,
To the Children of Faith.
Oh Radiant Mother!
Your Grace is Limitless,
Oh Great Divine Goddess.
To the Hungry and Lost,
To the Homeless and Poor,
To the Unloved and Sad,
All they must really do
Is surrender to You!
Your love — like the ocean,
Is peaceful, deep and calm.
Your eyes — like the night sky
Shining with Sacred Light.
We find your Loving Shade
Universal Mother —
Liberate us for Grace.
Let us Recognize You
With Our Hearts, Minds and Souls.
And Cherish you Always
By Jhumpa Mallick
With the blessings of our Gurus, we continued to make japa of the Devi Prapannarti Hare Mantra and have offered 1,228,704 mantras by December 15, 2010. Thank You!
When love is tainted by selfishness, it cannot illumine at all. Self is lovelessness; Love is selflessness. Love gives and forgives. Self gets and forgets. Love can never entertain the idea of revenge, for it sees all others as Oneself. When the tongue is hurt by the teeth, do you seek vengeance against the teeth? No, they both belong to you and are integral parts of your body. So too, when some other person insults you or inflicts pain, allow wisdom to have mastery over you. Discover the truth and do not rush to conclusions, always keeping love as your guide. This is a difficult task, but not beyond your capacity. Embark on this task with ardor and faith, you will attain sweet victory.
