Devi Mahatmyam Parayana Slokas

Bhagavadgita - Chapter 16 !

Welcome to kasarabada.org !

This week we have a new addition to our collection in terms of Parayana Slokas from Devi Mahatmyam. We also have an interesting story about a trip to Washington under "one more thing"

Devi Mahatmyam is slokas in praise of Devi or Goddess Mother, a popular concept in Hinduism. This Devi Mahatmyam or Durga Sapta Sati is chanted during the Navaratris. Durga is also referred to as Chandi. The Devi Mahatmyam is divided into thirteen chapters with seven hundred slokas (Sapta Sati). Devi ( Mishawaka) is presented in three forms. They are Maha Kali ( chapter 1), Mahalakshmi ( chapter two to chapter four), Maha Saraswati ( chapter five to chapter thirteen ). Durga Sapta Sati Parayana or chanting is a quite wide spread. For the sake Parayana or chanting additional slokas or stutis have been added. These are as follows - Argala Stotra, Kilaka Stotra, Devi Kavacha, Aparadha Kshamapana Stotra, Devi Sukta ( from Rig Veda). This is for connoisseurs of Parayana or chanting.

We have added the sixteenth chapter of Bhagavadgita. We started Gita Yagnya exactly sixteen months ago. We have been adding one chapter of Bhagavadgita every month. This weeks addition is about the divine and demonaical qualities in a person. There is one sloka which presents the mental make up of a person who with arrogance says " I have this , I will also have that other one". "I killed this man and I will kill others also". "I am the Lord". It is not as though such people are ancient. They are there among us. Many of us would have unmistakably come across them. Krishna explains that as the behavior emanating out of the demonaical attributes of a person. The softer divine attributes guide a person towards achieving liberation.

The Telugu version of the chapter sixteen in Bhagavadgita is already added.

A few weeks ago we highlighted our usual review of the visitors to the site. We are happy with the readership.

We also have a new announcement on our Trust pages.

That is about the four scholarships offered through Athato Foundation at the Gayathri Vidya Parishad(GVP) Engineering college in Visakhapatnam in AP( India).

Happy reading !
