Overcoming troubles – Durgā Sūktam (weekend workshop)

October 9, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Durga temple

Introduction – weekend navarātri sādhana

In this weekend intensive  you will learn the famous Durgā Sūktam, a mantra from the Veda-s recited to overcome difficulties encountered in our life.

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.

Course objectives:

At the end of this weekend workshop, you will:

  • Learn the complete Durgā Sūktam along with all Vedic phonetic details.
  • Understand the meaning of each mantra along with some important key words.
  • Learn the connection between Agni and Durgā.
  • Practice chanting with the teacher on Zoom at least once (more if you wish).
