Durga Ma

Durga Ma, of all mothers, you are the greatest

And we, humans on planet earth

Bow down to you in respect and reverence.

You are a mother to all who seek for maternal love

And you give hope and compassion to orphans.

Your lap is so vast that we all fit in it.

Your heart is so large that it gives love to all.

Your pitcher is always full of the milk of wisdom

And you quench the thirst of all spiritual seekers.

Ma, you are the greatest giver and you give

All that we need even before we ask you

For you are the knower supreme knowing our needs.

Looking at your pristine beauty, effulgent,

We are mesmerized and float like angels

Among the clouds light, seeing miracles emerge.

Looking at your smiles, we feel liberated

And all our troubles melt like snow and flow down.

Looking at your generous hands, we become nonchalant

And share our possessions with the needy and helpless.

Ma, you are our guide, luminescent and ineffable.

Take us all to the right path, however hard it is,

That path which leads to knowledge

Dispelling the darkness of ignorance.

Unite us all Ma so that no space is left

For egotism, self-centeredness, jealousy and hatred.

We have in you Ma, an uncompromising faithfulness.

This Navratri, take us all in your lap

And let our tears trickle down gently

To dissolve all our pains and sufferings.

    A beautiful prayer – poem , rooted in deep faith in the powerful Mother Goddess , well in the midst of the 10!day Durga Puja celebrations. Today is the fifth day , called Panchami , and the Goddess is dressed in white . An appropriate day for such a poignant and compassionate prayer.

    A faith-centered poem, prostrating and sincerely praying in a humble way Goddess Durga or Devi, the supreme ‘shakti’
    who can destroy all evil-spirited darkness and take human beings into the path of enlightenment in commemoration with the ongoing festival spirit of Navratri.

    Happy Navratri to you as well and let’s pray for peace, kindness and goodness in the world.
