Durga Puja Musings



Durga Puja is celebrated in honour of the victory that the Parasakthi (the Goddess of Energy immanent in the microcosm and the macrocosm) achieved over the A-sura of evil forces, as described in the Devi Mahatmyam and Devi Bhagavatham.

That Parasakthi is in everyone as the Kundalini Shakti, when this Shakti is awakened it is able to destroy the evil tendencies inside the mind; so the Durga Puja is to be dedicated by all for the propitiation of the outer as well as inner Divinity, in order that the outer and inner worlds may have peace and joy.

By means of systematic sadhana it is possible to tap the inner resources that God has endowed man with and elevate yourselves to the purer and happier realm of reality.
