ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
About the Devi Demo

Yogis of the Hindu Goddess tradition worship Devi, the Great Goddess as a sacred presence that can be experienced through chanting “her” names. Each name is a mantra that can awaken the living grace of the Devi. It does not matter if we are a man or a woman. Devi belongs to everyone. She is the Universal Mother, Light of Awareness, Field of Time. This music belongs to Her. It is a music of longing and becoming, of opening and merging, of soaring and dying and being born over and over again. It is the music of your own Heart. For people who like to sing along, here are words and translation/commentaries to the chants.


Om Narayani

Om Narayani
Jai Jai Mahadevi
Om Maheshwari
O Ma Sri Ma Jai Ma

Narayani is a Name of the Devi that translates as “the Abode of the Self.” Maheshwari translates as “the Sovereign One.” We sing, “Let Narayani and Maheshwari awaken within me. Let me praise the Great Goddess, She who is Magnificent, until I know her as my own great heart.”


Kali Durge

Kali Durge Namo Namah
Kali Durge Namo Namah

Uma Parvati…
Chiti Kundalini…
Laksmi Anapurna…
Girija Shankari…
Sundari Saraswati…

Kali Durge is one of the most beloved Names of the Devi. It invokes the fierce compassion of the Mother, the force of insight that destroys the enemies of the heart. We sing, “Let me merge with that divine splendour in which we are born and live our lives and die back into again and again and again. Let the blazing light of the Devi destroy all that stands in the way of truth, beauty, contentment, wisdom, and love. Let me know the protectress and savior of my heart as my own great Self.”


Vina Vadhini

Vina Vadhini Saraswati Ma
Jaya Jagadambe, Jaya Jagadambe, Jaya Jagadambe
Hey Janani Ma
Vina Vadhini Saraswati Ma
Amba Bhavani Bhavani Ma
Jaya Jagadeshwari Rakshaya Ma

This chant awakens the power of Saraswati, the goddess of music, language, wisdom, inspiration, insight, and intelligence. Chanting it opens the floodgates of the Creative. “Victory to Saraswati who plays the vina. You are the Mother of all creation. Your are the power of pure existence. Victory to you, Sovereign Goddess and Protectress of all that is pure and true.”


Sadashiva Ranjani

Sadashiva Ranjani Jai Janani
Shambhavi Shankari Durga Bhavani
Mata Maheshwari Jai Narayani

Sadashiva Ranjani Jai Janani
Akhilaandeshwari Raja Rajeshwari
Mata Maheshwari Jai Narayani
Jagadambe Jai Jai Ma

This chant lifts the singer into a state of joy. “Rejoicing in the ever-blissful Self, let me sing praises to the Goddess in all her wonderous and myriad forms.”


Lakshmi Bija Mantra

Om Srim Mahalakshmiyei Swaha

Lakshmi is the face of the Devi that personifies the fullness of life in all its beauty and grace. Chanting this mantra awakens the inner state of abundance that draws the outer experience of majesty, good fortune, and joy.


Saraswati Bija Mantra

Om Aim Saraswatiyei Swaha

Saraswati is the face of the Devi that personifies the Creative. Chanting this mantra opens us into the stream of consciousness that carries inspiration, insight, wisdom, music, poetry, all the highest faculties of human intelligence.
