Devasena – Story of Devasena - wife of Kartik or Muruga

Devasena is the wife of Kartik or Muruga, who is the commander of the army of Devas and who is also the son of Shiva. Story of Devasena is found in the Mahabharata. She is also known as Jayanti and Devayanai.
Devasena was the daughter of Prajapati. She along with her sister Daityasena was captured by demon king Keshin.
Daityasena agreed to become part of the designs of the demon king. But Devasena did not relent.
She was rescued by King Indra and protected as she was daughter of his mother’s sister.
Indra then found her a suitable and powerful husband in Kartik.
It must be noted that in some Puranas, Devasena is mentioned as the daughter of Indra.

State of carving for anything blocks all deeper experience – Nisargadatta Maharaj

Cease being fascinated by the content of your consciousness.
The state of carving for anything blocks all deeper experience.
One is always free. You are both conscious and free to be conscious. Nobody can take this away from you.
Do not think that you are the body. Give yourself no name and no shape. In the darkness and silence reality is found.
Whatever you may say will be both true and false. Words do not reach beyond the mind.
Wisdom tells me I am nothing. Love tells me I am everything. And between the two my life flows. Nisargadatta Maharaj
