About the Authors

Shree Maa

Shree Maa has been devoted to God from her childhood. Leaving home at an early age, she performed sadhana in Kamakhya in the regions of the Northeastern State of Assam in India. She sat for most of this time in the silence of deep meditation, speaking very little and eating practically nothing. Her sustenance consisted of sandal paste mixed with water, a bit of turmeric root, holy basil leaves, and occasional juice fed to her by devotees. Her body weight reduced to little more than sixty pounds. People who saw her in deep communion with God for hours and days at a time called her the Goddess of the Mountain, the Goddess of the River, or simply Shree Maa, the Respected Holy Mother.
After several years of deep meditation Shree Maa began to roam throughout India, worshiping in temples, forests, fields and homes. And she began to sing. Sometimes she would sing all night, and devotees would gather to be in the presence of this holy woman whose entire life is worship.
In 1984 Shree Maa came to America, where she lives a simple life dedicated to daily worship. Fame and wealth could easily be hers, but she wants nothing to do with them, preferring to own very little and to offer all to God.
Like Ramprasad, she declines the offers of temples and ashrams, preferring the solitude of her spiritual discipline. She chooses to spend her days in worship, meditation and service, teaching that all the acts of life can be service to God and expressions of devotion. Shree Maa’s realization is an example, an inspiration, a gift. Like Ramprasad, her bhava comes from pure intuitive experience. Her message transcends all boundaries as she builds bridges across continents, cultures and creeds.

Swami Satyananda Saraswati

Swami Satyananda Saraswati is considered to be one of the foremost Vedic scholars and Sanskrit translators in the West. He is the author of nearly 60 books in nine different languages representing a significant contribution to the understanding of Hinduism and Vedic religious practices.

Swamiji comes from the Dashnami lineage of Adi Shankaracharya and belongs to the Saraswati tribe of renunciates and scholars. Saraswati sadhus worship with both spiritual knowledge and devotion, and they live the lives of teachers and knowers of wisdom. Swamiji’s Guru, Swami Amritananda Saraswati, initiated him into Vedic Knowledge and Sanskrit and the Chandi Path and sacred fire ceremony as his primary system of spiritual discipline in 1971.

For 15 years Swamiji walked the length and breadth of the Himalayas, during which time he fell in love with Sanskrit and became proficient in numerous languages including Hindi, Bengali, and Urdu. He practiced intense spiritual austerities, chanting the Chandi Path naked in the Himalayan snow and in the hot springs of Bakreswar. Wherever Swamiji went he would learn the local systems of worship and inspire those around him to join in the joy of selfless devotion.

In 1979, Swamiji met Shree Maa when he was performing a vow of worship in a small temple in the interior of West Bengal. They subsequently toured India, sharing their divine love and inspiration by performing pujas and homas, and sharing their realization by openly teaching their methods of spiritual practice. In 1984 Shree Maa and Swamiji came to America and established the Devi Mandir, where they shine their beacon of light from Napa, California. Today, they work tirelessly to give every individual the opportunity to access these spiritual teachings.

Durga Saptashati which is also known as Devi Mahatmya and Chandi Path is a Hindu religious text describing the victory of the Goddess Durga over the demon Mahishasura. It is part of the Markandeya Purana, written by sage Markandeya.

The text contains Saptashata i.e. 700 verses and because of that the whole composition is known as Durga Saptashati. The seven hundred verses are arranged into 13 chapters. For ritual reading purposes a number of subsidiary texts are appended before and after of 700 verses. A ritualistic reading of Durga Saptashati is part of the Navratri (nine days of worship in the months of April and October) celebrations in the honor of the Goddess Durga. It is the base and root of the Shakta tradition.

The Devi Mahatmaya describes how Devi assumes many aspects, according to the tasks to be performed by her, sometimes sweet and tender, and at others terrible and devouring. Devi is the deluding power which binds man to the relentlessly moving wheel of samsara; she deludes even the wisest of men. Yet she is the one who bestows liberation on the devotee who pleases her. For the sake of the continuance of her divine play, she as avidya-maya, has veiled the truth from us and bound us to samsara. When she is propitiated through the practice of sincere devotion and self-surrender, she as vidya-maya, removes the veil and enables us to perceive the truth. The Saptashati refers to her as Mahavidya, Mahamaya, Mahamedha, Mahasmriti, Mahamoha, Mahadevi and Maheshwari. She is Parabrahma-Mahishi, the queen and sovereign of all existence. Her compassion takes the form of aspiration in the aspirant, sadhana in the sadhaka, siddhi in the siddha. She is the truth behind thought, willing, feeling, understanding, action, name and form. It says (11:6):

“Vidyassamastastava Devi bhedah
Striyassamastah sakala jagatsu
Tvayaikaya puritamambayaitat
Kaa te stutih stavyapara paroktih”

Meaning : ‘Mother, all arts and sciences, all branches of knowledge, are your modifications, all women in the world are your manifestations. You alone pervade the entire creation.’

The conception of the Infinite as Mother is not a meaningless one. The Riga Veda bears testimony to the fact that even in ancient times there existed the belief that the supreme ruler is the all-compassionate Mother. The conception of divinity as Devi, Durga or Sri, is not merely a theory but a practical way of life. The mother is the personality that appeals most to the human heart, whereas the father is perceived as a hard taskmaster. Even a subtle philosopher cannot dispense with the conception of Shakti, for he is essentially an embodiment of power, and has love for power. The highest intelligence and the most speculative metaphysics is only a manifestation of jnana shakti and is not outside the range of Shaktism.

Durga Saptashati is a significant composition to perform Chandi Homa which is one of the most significant Homa(s) done to gain health and to conquer over enemies. Chandi Homa is performed while chanting verses from Durga Saptashati. Total 700 Ahuti i.e. offering to Goddess Durga through sacred fire are made during Chandi Homa.

Durga Saptashati Path Vidhi

  • In the morning, after taking a bath and finishing one’s daily worship or other rituals, one should sit on an asana facing North or East and try to evoke a state of concentration and devotion.
  • The paath (reading) is most effective when done with firm faith, devotion and correct pronunciation. During the time of reading, one should try not to talk, sleep, sneeze, yawn or spit, but read with complete concentration on Devi in the form which appeals to one. One should not stop in the middle of a chapter. It is good to place the book on a stand, preferably a copper plate.
  • At the beginning and end of each chapter, bells may be rung.
  • Before starting the paath, affirm the purpose for which you are performing it – make a resolve, sankalpa, and perform worship of Devi.
  • Navaratri is an ideal period for the paath of Durga Saptashati; however, in the other months, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday are considered auspicious days of the week for beginning the reading. The ideal days of the lunar calendar are ashtami (eighth day of the moon), navami (ninth day of the moon) and chaturdashi (fourteenth day of the moon).
  • The Saptashati may be read daily and completed in seven days in the following manner of division of chapters.
    • Day One: first chapter.
    • Day Two: second and third.
    • Day Three: fourth.
    • Day Four: fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth. Day Five: ninth and tenth.
    • Day Six: eleventh.
    • Day Seven: twelfth and thirteenth.

This is the traditional rule. It is believed that whatever sankalpa the Saptashati is read with, will be fulfilled. Since Shakti is the basis for all iccha (desire), jnana (knowledge) and kriya (action), one cannot stay out of the realm of Shakti. An individual is but Shakti, and hence one can have everything through the worship of Shakti. The reading should be in the following order:

Path
  1. Devi Suktam
  2. Devi Kavacham
  3. Argala Stotram
  4. Keelakam
  5. Ratri Suktam
  6. Devi Mahatmya
  7. Kshama Prarthana

Devi Suktam

The eight verses of the Devi Suktam were composed by Vak, daughter of Maharshi Ambharin, and are from the Rig Veda (10th mandala, 10th anuvaka, 125th sukta). These shlokas express the truth realized by Vak, who identifies herself as Brahma Shakti, and expresses herself as eleven Rudras, eight Vasus, twelve Adityas and all the devas who are sustained by her and she is the source, substratum and support of the whole world.

Devi Kavacham

Consisting of 61 verses, Devi Kavacham is in Markandeya Purana. This kavacham (armour) protects the reader in all parts of the body, in all places and in all difficulties. Every part of the body is mentioned and Devi, in different forms, is being worshipped.

Argala Stotram

Shri Durga Saptashati Path Mp3 Free Download A Z

Here, Rishi Markandeya tells his disciples in twenty-seven inspiring couplets about the greatness of Devi. She has been described in all aspects and names and at the end of each shloka, prayer is offered to Devi for material prosperity, physical fitness, fame and victory.

Keelakam

Mp3

Here also, Rishi Markandeya tells his disciples in sixteen shlokas the ways and means of removing obstacles faced by devotees while reading Devi Mahatmya. Reading of Keelakam brings blessings of Devi, spiritual harmony, peace of mind and success in all pursuits.

Ratri Suktam

The eight shlokas here have been taken from the Rig Veda (10th mandala, 10th anuvaka, 127th sukta). Devi is described as the all-pervading Supreme Lord of the universe appearing in Omkara. Ratri means ‘she who fulfils our prayers’.

Devi Mahatmya

The text is divided into three parts:

  1. Prathama (first)
  2. Madhyama (middle)
  3. Uttara (final)

The first chapter describes the glory of Maha Kali, the second, third and the fourth chapters glorify Maha Lakshmi, and the last nine chapters from the fifth to the thirteenth glorify Maha Saraswati.
