Album Notes
The Devi Mahatmyam is an exquisite and legendary hymn of 700 verses that describes the victory of Divine Mother Durga over a number of great demons, most notably Mahishasur. Mahishasur, the buffalo demon, personifies our ego and pride—the greatest enemy along the spiritual path. According to the legend, due to him terrorising the whole world, the Gods turn to Durga to help them in their distress. She manifests out of the combined Shakti of all the Gods, and after slaying him, Durga becomes known as Mahishasuramardini.
Considered to be one of the most important texts in the worship of the Divine Mother, the reading of the Devi Mahatmyam hymn during the annual nine-night Navaratri celebrations is considered to be highly auspicious and said to grant liberation to those who listen with an open heart.
The recording was made at Shree Peetha Nilaya, Germany, the main ashram of Bhakti Marga, Sri Swami Vishwananda’s mission. Shree Peetha Nilaya means “Home of the Divine Mother” and Navaratri is celebrated there each autumn as one of the main festivals of the year.
