From the 10th Maṇḍala of the Ṛg Veda, this mantra is stunning both in poetic expression as well as in its sound. Revealed to a Ṛṣika or woman seer – Vāk Ambhṛṇī who in this hymn, identifies completely with the Supreme Vāk, or sound (parāśakti in Tantra), joyfully expresses her realisation through these 8 mantras. This hymn is therefore a song in praise of the Self.
In the words of my dear friend Jean Le Mée – Here, with extraordinary poetic power and in words reminiscent of the Proverbs of Solomon and of Dante, Vak, the Word, is exalted “beyond the Heavens and beyond this broad Earth.” This word of knowledge, of wisdom – the sound of Truth itself – is the source and nourisher of Creation.
Join us for this 5 class course to learn this supremely uplifting and empowering hymn, Devī Sūktam. We celebrate Navarātri together through this practice – the festival of 9 nine nights dedicated to sacred feminine energy.
We study word by word, understanding all the Vedic phonetics involved in great depth, along with its contemplative meaning.
