Durga Saptashati (Devi Mahatmyam)

An  English commentator Cobum says: "The sage's three tales are allegories of  outer and inner experience, symbolized by the fierce battles the all-powerful  Devi wages against throngs of demonic foes. Her adversaries represent the  all-too-human impulses arising from the pursuit of power, possessions and  pleasure, and from illusions of self-importance. Like the battlefield of the Bhagavad  Gita, the Devi Mahatmya's killing grounds represent the field of  human consciousness. The Devi, personified as one supreme Goddess and many  goddesses, confronts the demons of ego and dispels our mistaken idea of who we  are, for – paradoxically – it is she who creates the misunderstanding in the  first place, and she alone who awakens us to our true being."
Such is the eternal glory of the  Universal Mother Divine. Let Her abundant blessings be showered on all of us,  particularly during these auspicious days of Navaratri.
