IN Praise and Worship of Primordial Energy and Material Prosperity PART III

Durgaa Suktam

[This is a prayer to the fire God Agni occurring in the Maha Narayana Upanishad. Durga is used here as a word for Difficult problems in almost all the stanzas. The salutation to Durga is given only in the second stanza. (But many people consider this as prayer to goddess Durga for removing all obstacles and evils.) I have relied on the translation of Maha Narayana Upanishad by Swami Vimalanda for making this translation.] 

Jatavedase sunavama soma marathee yatho nidhahadhi veda,
Sa na parshadathi durgani viswa naaveva sindhum durithathyagni  || 1 ||

Our oblations of Soma to the fire god,
May he, the all knowing one destroy all those who do not like us,
May that divine fire lead us out of all perils,
Like a captain takes his boat across the sea,
And also save us from all wrongs.

Thaam agni varnaam thapasa jwalanthim vairochanim karma phaleshu jushtam,
Durgam devim saranamaham prapadhye, sutharasi tharase nama.  || 2 ||

I take refuge in the divine mother Durga*,
Who shines like a fire due to her penances,
Who resides in actions and their fruits and makes them effective,
And I salute her who helps us cross our difficulties.
* It could be translated as Mother of difficulties also

Agne thwam paaraya navyo asmaan swasthibhirathi durgani viswa,
Pushscha prithwi bahula na urvee bhava thokaaya thanayaya shamyoh.  || 3 ||

Oh God of fire, you are worthy of praise,
For by novel methods you help us cross,
The difficulties and make us happy,
May our land in this earth become extensive,
May the land for growing crops become large,
And be pleased to join our children and,
Their children with joy and happiness.

Vishvaani no durghaa jathaveda sindhunaa nava durithathi parshi,
Agne athrivan manasaa grina no asmakam bodhayithwa thanoo naam. || 4 ||

Oh Jatha Vedas who is the destroyer of all sins,
Make us cross all our troubles like a boat,
Which takes us to the other shore without problems,
Oh Fire, protect us like the sage Athri, who would take care of us,
Mindful of our safety and our happiness.

Prithana jitham saha mana mugram agnim huvema paramath sadhasthath,
Sa na parshadathi durgani viswa kshamaddhevo athi durithatyagni  ||
5 ||

We invoke the fierce Fire God who is the leader of us all.
And who is the killer of all our enemies from the highest place,
To take us across all difficulties and all that is perishable and protect us

Prathnoshika meedyo adhvareshu sanacha hota navyascha sadhsi,
Swacha agne piprayaswa asmabhyam cha soubhahya maya jaswa. || 6 ||

Oh Fire God, you are praised during sacrifices,
And always increase our happiness, and exist as sacrifices,
Which are olden and those which are new,
Please make us, who are only yourself, happy,
And grant us good fortune from all our sides.

Gobhir jushta mayujo nishithktham thavendra vishnor anusancharema,
Naa kasya prushtam abhisamvasaano vaishnavim loka iha madhayantham  || 7 ||

Oh Lord, you are not connected with sin and sorrow,
Permit us to always serve you who pervades all wealth,
May the Gods who live in the highest region make me,
Who adores Vishnu, delighted and happy and grant my wishes.

[From Maha Narayana Upanishad]

Saptaslokee Durgaa

Jnaaninaamapi chetaamci devee bhagavatee hi saa /

Devi who is known as Mahaamaaya attracts the attention of all forcibly including the learned ones, and casts her spell on them into the deep waters of desire, affection and attachment.

Daaridrya duhkha bhayahaarini kaa tvadanyaa sarvoepakaarakaranaaya sadaardrichittaa // 2 ||
Durga relieves the fear of all who are in trouble when they think of her; grants intellect and all good things on thinking of her for those who are not in trouble. She relieves miseries, fear and poverty.  She is ever kind hearted, taking care of everyone’s welfare.
Sarvamangala maangalye sive sarvaartha-sadhike /
Saranye tryambake gauri naaraayani namostu te  // 3 ||
She converts every affliction into pleasure; she is embodiment of auspiciousness, fulfilling every need. I pay my obeisance to one in whom I can take refuge, one who is addressed as Gauri, Tryambike and  Narayani.

She relieves all diseases when pleased, and takes away all desired things when not pleased. The men under her protection do not remain poor, but they get the power to give shelter to others who are needy.

Evameva tvayaa kaarya-masmad-vairi-vinaasanam // 7  ||
Oh Devi! Please put an end to all obstacles that come in my way of happiness; Oh! The ruler of three worlds (heaven, earth and nether-worlds), make it your main task to destroy all my enemies.
Introducing Bhavani sahasranama……..

For your celebration of Sharada Navaratri,    Muralidharan Iyengar  from Singapore is   delighted to share a rare Sahasranama on Goddess Shakti titled Bhavani Sahasranama from Rudra Yamalam. The sanctity of this Sahasranama can be understood by the very elaborate Phalashruti running into several pages. Apparently Sri Kanchi Paramacharya used to recommend chanting this Sahasranama for begetting auspiciousness in one's life - especially girls who are seeking suitable grooms.

Though Goddess Shakti is worshipped in innumerable forms, Navaratri worships her in three forms Durga, Lakshmi and Sarasvati but in 9 different Durga forms (one each day). In Durga Saptashati, Goddess Devi herself corroborates the oneness of all her forms when Shumbhasura accuses Goddess Devi of fighting with Asuras with the help of others and She herself is not capable of defeating them (Devi Mahatmyam, Chapter 10, Shlokas 3-5)

Shumbha -

anyAsAM balamAshritya yud.dhyase yAtimAinI || 547 ||
devyuvAca -
ekaivA.haM jagatyatra dvitIyA kA mamAparA | pashyaitA duShTamayye vishantyo madvibhUtayaH ||

(Meaning : In this universe, I am the only who is present. What is there beyond me? O Fool! All these (forms such as Brahmani, Kaumari, Maheshvari, etc.) are all my manifestations and you will now see them merging back in me).

Now let us see how the same concept is expounded in a Narada Pancharatra, which is one of important Vaishnavite Agamas. In Ratri 1, Chatper 12, Goddess Parvati prays Lord Krishna as below (Shlokas 55 - 64) :

PArvatyuvAca -

Tava vaxasi rAdha.ahaM rAse vRRindAvane vane | mahalaxmIshca vaikuNThe pAda padmArcane ratA || 55 ||
shvetadvIpe sindhukanyA viShNorasi bhUtale | brahmaloke ca brahmANI vedamAtA ca bharati. || 56 ||
tatpashcA daxa-kanyAhamadhunA pArvatI hare | tavAGYayA harakoreDe tvad Bhakta prati janmani || 58 ||
Narayana-priyA shashvat tena nArAyaNI shrutau | viShNorahaM parAshaktir viShNumAyA ca vaishnavi || 59 ||
Ananta-koTi brahmANDaM mayA sammohitaM sadA | viduShAM rasanAgre ca pratyaxaM hi Sarasvati || 60 ||

(Meaning : In your heart I am Radha and I was with you in Vrindavana. I accompany you as Lakshmi in Vaikuntha and I perform archana to your Lotus feet. In the earth I am Sindhu Kanya | I am Brahmani, Vedamata and Bharati in Brahma loka | Now I am Parvati, daughter of Daksha and consort of Shankara. I worship you in every manifestation of mine. I am Vishnumaya and Vaishnavi ...")

Actually Lord Narayana conveys the same in Gayatri Stotram in Devi Bhagavatam ("Adishakte jaganmAtar bhaktAnugraha kAriNI ...") and explains how the same Shakti is manifested in different forms in different abodes.

So there is no surprise Navaratri prays to Goddess Shakti in 3 different forms. By virtue of this, the right place for all the time-killers such as supposed disparity among Trinity is Rubbish bin. (By the way, in the imaginary fight between Vishnu and Shiva, poor Brahma is always given a raw deal!)

 In Vishnu stutis,Siva is praised as sha~Nkara-priya-mitrAya namaH (Ranganatha Ashtottaram, Venkatesha Ashtottaram, etc.) and Shiva is praised as Vishnu-kalatrAya namaH/Vishnu-vallabhAya namaH.  .

I personally think fanaticism has no place in Sanatana Dharma nor is it a measure of intensity of one's Bhakti. If at all, it is perhaps a measure of the intensity one's psychological/mental disorder (eccentricity)!

May We Pray to Goddess Durga who is also Lakshmi and Sarasvati during this Navaratri!

 Sri Bhavani Sahasranama Stotram – Sri Rudra Yamalam

The following is a rare Saharanamam (1008 names) of Goddess Bhavani from Sri Rudra Yamala Tantram as told by Lord Shiva to Lord Nandi. The Phalashruti is very elaborate running to several pages. In summary the following benefits are said to accure to the one who chants this Sahasranama with devotion:
·        Relief from all sins, sorrows, diseases, inauspiciousness, planetary afflictions,
            afflictions from evil spirits, etc.
·        Accrual of wealth, grains, lustre, comforts, fame, auspicious events, progeny, clan,
            spouse, etc.
·        Chanting this Sahasranama 10 times a day bestows divine vision of Sri Bhavani in
            dreams. Chanting this 1000 times bestows Siddhi of this Sahasranama.
