During this time of Navratri Celebrations, Renooji (Renoo Nirula), has enabled us with knowledge and mantras to connect to, understand, and invoke the energies of Devi. It is a Journey that the Guru Invites You to take with Surrender and Devotion. (Below are extracts from Renooji’s lectures on Devi, Shakti, Durga and her many forms to empower you further)
“The Goddess who is astride a tiger, adorned with weapons in 8 of her 10 hands, she brings with her peace not war as she is guided by the bell-like crescent moon – protecting and creating, not punishing and destroying. Her three eyes see all, bless all, and protect all.”
‘As the 9 Nights and 10 Days of Worshipping and Glorifying the Feminine Divine reach its third night, with the Third Form of the 9 Devis – Let us establish a permanent connection to the Devis through mantra and meditation in our daily spiritual practice.
The 9 Devis, or Durgas are the key -expansions of the Feminine Divine in Hindu Folklore – our Myths, Legends and Vedic Hymns describe them as Warriors, Mothers, Progenitors, Protectors, and Keepers of ALL Human endeavour – this is a time to glorify them, each bestowing us with specific blessings and boons, the only way to access these divine gifts is through Gratitude and Surrender. There are many who shall focus on the mystic powers of the Devis in these Navratris, do not be fooled. The attraction to her mysticism is also part of her illusion. Be focused in your spiritual practice and affirm that you have unlimited and unbound access to her true form, daily and forever.
For many, these adjectives will never be enough, and hence they refer to her in her energy form – as SHAKTI! As all that is movement, kinetic and frenetic in this world and the next. She is the Masculine Divine in motion – she is that combustible nuclear energy ACTIVATED! That is what Shakti is, and to know her, touch her, taste her and see her, we must first begin by inviting her, and approaching her with love in our hearts. The best way to do this is through Mantra, and so, we are sharing here a small part of the Navratri Chanting from the 3rd of October, 2016. As we begin the mantra and meditation for the third Form of Durga – CHANDRAGHNATA, we begin by celebrating Her arrival, with the chant:
II SARVA-MANGAL MAANGAL-YE, SHIVEY SARVAARATH-SAADHIKEY
SHARANN-YE TRAYAMBIKEY, GAURI NAARAAYANI-NAMO-STUTEY II:
‘Devi Chandraghanta is worshipped on the 3rd night of the Holy Navratris. As her glory reaches its fullest form, her body radiates with a golden-hue. Eight of HER hands display weapons while the remaining two are respectively in the mudras that are symbolic of boon-giving and warding-off harm. Chandra + Ghanta, in Sanskrit literally means ‘giver of supreme bliss, knowledge and the one who is showering peace and serenity on all just like the cool breeze on a moonlit night.’
Devi Chandraghanta is often referred to as Chandika, Chandrakhanda,or Rannchandi. She is worshipped in this form in Kanchipuram (Tamil Nadu), India. Her energies are an expansion of the red realms, and at this frequency her energies are thus filtered with pink lightning—spinal-like columns of light. These columns are activating strength for all Humans and their activities by unlocking auspicious karmic patterns housed in their root chakras.’
