1 hour class each
11 times recitation of Durgā Sūktam on Oct 4!!!
In this navarātri sādhana you will learn the famous Durgā Sūktam, a mantra from the Veda-s recited to overcome difficulties encountered in our life. We will recite the Sūktam 11 times on Vijayadaśami – Oct 4!!!
This hymn of 5 mantras appears in the Mahānārāyaṇa Upaniṣat of the Yajur Veda, of which 4 mantras are also in the Ṛg Veda and addressed to Agni.
The Warrior Goddess Durgā is seen as having the lustre of Agni, the leader of our journey to perfection. We pray that Agni leads us to happiness overcoming all states of grief. We take refuge in Her, the Warrior Goddess Durgā, who is skilled in saving and takes us across difficulties with grace.
