About this Item

The Devi Mahatmya or The Glory of Goddess or Sridurgasaptasati has a unique status in Indian devotional literature. It is a code of practice for the attainment of perfection both internal and external both spiritual and mundane. Goddess Durga seated on a lion represents in Indian myth and legends rituals and rhetorics metaphysical contemplations and folk traditions or to the eye of a worshipper a painter a sculptor or a poet the Adi Sakti the proto energy including in it all forms of vitality and strength might power and force proficiency and dynamism and all operative faculties. And so it is said that Siva begets Sakti and Sakti gives birth to Siva. Like Siva the Goddess embodies paradox and ambiguity: she is erotic yet detached: gentle yet heroic; beautiful yet terrible. Both in their happy union produce the worlds and souls. The present book is an ingenuous attempt to discover the quintessence of relationship between the Creator and Creation which would enliven the minds of general reader and quiz the mind of scholars to ruminate which would ultimately bring about moral renaissance. The hallmark of this book lies on the trinity of languages English & Hindi commentary with the original Sanskrit Text with a phonetic transliteration and in depth introduction alongwith the methods of recitation.
