Durga Pooja : A Resolution

” Durga Pooja is celebrated in various parts of India in different styles. But the one basic aim of this celebration is to propitiate Shakti, the Goddess in Her aspect as Power, to bestow upon man all wealth, auspiciousness, prosperity, knowledge (both sacred and secular), and all other potent powers. Whatever be the particular or special request that everyone may put before the Goddess, whatever boon may be asked of Her, and the one thing behind all these is a propitiation, worship and linking oneself with Her. There is no other aim. This is being effected consciously or unconsciously. Everyone is blessed with Her loving mercy and is protected by Her- Swami Sivananda.”

Durga Pooja and the 10 Day Significance

The world is divided into two epitomes – one is Pitrusakti and the other is Matrusakti. Matrusakti – if worshipped genuinely can give you material prosperity and salvation in the quickest possible time. In general, a mother is famous for the inherent love towards her kids.

Navratri festivity 2016 is ushering in, which actually represents divinity. It is symbolic to nine different holy nights which are celebrated countrywide. Although it happens five times in India still the pomp and grandeur become febrile during this fall autumn.

All these nights are dark nights yet they are meant to remove the darkness of the world. In this write-up, we would briefly discuss about the supreme divinity of Goddess mother who has numerous names and several facets. Akhandadweep is kept lighted for the entire duration to enlighten human soul and mind. It can remove impurities of our hearts.

Thy Mother is also a supplement to large scale happiness. She takes many forms which are illustrated below:

  • Durga- who cannot be conquered.
  • Bhadrakali- who represents purity.
  • Amba or Jagdamba- Goddess of earth.
  • Annapurna- who fills your stomach through food.
  • Sarvamangala-the joy giver.
  • Bhairavi-the terror pacifier.
  • Chandika -who can diffuse violence?
  • Lalita -who is the Goddess of beauty?
  • Bhavani-who can give anything that a human wants.
  • Mookambika- an active listener.

It’s time for fasting, Dandiya, Garba, rituals, elephants, puri-halwa and so on. All these things give us a brilliant message. The entire world is an automation process. Every human being can create his or her own identity provided they flow in this ocean of joy and automation. We cannot just waste our time by thinking about the ego of others. We have to just religiously do our duty and make the rest of our lives as best of our lives in spite of many imperfections.

Tolerance, empathy, sympathy, humanity, spiritualism, God loving or fearing are some of the paths for salvation which can glorify your Karma and thus you escape the inseparable cycle of birth and death. We need to unite our soul with the supreme soul of our Mother through chanting which clean the negativity. There is an urge to pray more.

There is an urge to pray more. Oh my fellows love thy Mother! Merry making in the air, just grab it.
