Prostration to the Mother of the universe! The Navaratri celebrations and worship of Devi have purified the whole atmosphere. Let me relate to you the importance and the significance of the worship of Devi.
Devi in her aspects of the creative, the preservative and the destructive powers of the universe, is the Chidrupini Shakti, the eternal energy of God who is Satchidananda.
Devi worship or Durga Puja is the adoration of the Divine Mother of all things, who bears the seed of the universe in her imperishable womb, the Mahad-Brahma.
Devi is the consciousness power or the Chaitanya Shakti, the glory of the Supreme Sovereign of the universe made manifest to the manifested Jivas in the world of creation.
As the creator, the preserver and the destroyer of the universe are but one God appearing in three forms, so the power which is inseparable from God appears in its three fold aspect.
Even as a person here is known from his characters and powers, God is revealed in his Shakti which is the sum total of all knowledge, will and action, visible and felt as well as invisible and beyond comprehension. The whole universe is Shakti. It is all power or energy.
