Overcoming troubles – Durgā Sūktam

September 22, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Durga temple

Durgā Sūktam

A course of 5 classes to 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.
