When at the end of aeons,
The elements, earth and water,
Merge one into the other,
You will rest in the Void Infinite.

If at the end of aeons
The waters of flood rise high,
You will float like the bee above the surface
And stand in Siva Yoga state.

Of, if the Seven Primal Clouds continuous pour,
You will shine from the Lunar Sphere for a home.

When at the end of the aeons
When Brahma and others meet their destruction,
You will flourish with the blessings
Of the Lord of the Bull-Mount.

When at the end of aeons,
The typhoons blow to a destructive finale,
You will, performing dharma,
Stand unmoved as the Mountain Meru.

Oh! Thou, the Siddha Elite of Divine Light
That hath reached the Vedanta-Siddhanta accord high!

Thayumanavar
The Siddha Elite 3th hymn

Of Being woven


The way is full of genuine sacrifice.
The thickets blocking your path
are anything  that keeps you from that,
any fear that you may be broken into bits like a glass bottle.
This road demands courage and stamina,
yet it's full of footprints!
Who are these companions?
They are rungs in your ladder. Use them!
With company you quicken your ascent.
You may be happy enough going along,
but with others you'll get farther, and faster.

Someone who goes cheerfully by himself
to the customs house to pay his traveler's tax
will go even more lightheartedly when friends are with him.

Every prophet sought out companions.
A wall standing alone is useless,
but put three or four walls together,
and they'll support a roof and keep grain dry and safe.

When ink joins with a pen,
then the blank paper can say something.
Rushes and reeds must be woven to be useful as a mat.
If they weren't interlaced; the wind would blow them away.

Like that, God paired up creatures, and gave them friendship.

Rumi

It has taken considerable time
For your illusions
To be built up.
Yet, it takes no time at all
To dissolve them,
To replace them
With simplicity in, and
Acceptance of,
Life.

A common misconception is the belief
that thinking is the creation of the thought.
Rather,it is the reception of thought
which has no name and from a place
that cannot be found.
Since one can't decide to think,
nor can one decide thoughts' contents,
why does one claim their ownership?
Is every sound Wu Hsin's because
he can hear them?

Shailaputhri
Daughter of the mountain


Salutations to Shailaputhri,
 the  fulfiller of desires ,
 Who has the moon's crescent ,
and who rides on a bull!

from Nava Durga Stotram
verse 1
Shailaputri is the first aspect of the Mother Durga.
Nava Durgas are nine Shakthi aspects worshiped 
during different days of Navarathri.

Durga Saptha Sloki
(Seven verses to Durga)

Shiva said:-
 
Oh Goddess  who can be easily approached by devotion,
Who  helps  us  to  get all  actions  done ,
Please tell me  the  trick of achieving result for actions in Kali age.
 
Goddess told :-
 
Oh god, please hear  what I say ,
Which is the one fulfilling all desires in Kali age ,
Due  to my love with you I am ,
I am telling you this prayer to Mother Goddess.
 
For this seven versed prayer addressed to Durga , The sage in Lord Narayana , the meter is Anushtup, This is being chanted to please Goddess Kali, Goddess Lakshmi and Goddess Saraswathi:

 
That famous lady Maha Maya,Great Enchantress, who is personification of all riches, draws the minds of even those who have special knowledge and make them behave with baser instinct of affection.
 
You destroy sorrow of all beings who sorrow, you give great wisdom to those who are fearless and Oh Goddess who destroys the fear of poverty, who is there in this world except you who has a heart dripped in mercy.

Oh Goddess who is a giver of all good things, who is peaceful, who is a giver of all wealth, who can be relied upon, who has three eyes and who is golden in colour, Our salutations to you, Narayani!
 
Hey Goddess, who takes care of those who surrender to you and those who are suffering, Hey Goddess who removes all sufferings from the entire world, Our salutations to you, Narayani!
 
Oh goddess who takes all forms, who is the goddess of every thing and who is having all types of strengths, please save us from fears, Our salutations to you, Goddess Durga.
 
Hey Goddess of the entire world, please keep on doing the destruction of our enemies, which would destroy the sorrow of all the three worlds.
 
If you are happy you destroy all sort of problems and if you are angry you destroy all desirable happenings. For any one surrendering to you there are no dangers.


Translated by
P.R.Ramachander
 
 These seven verses are only selection from the great Devi Mahatmyam.

O Thou, the Highest Deity, the Dweller in Rasa Mandalam!
 I bow down to Thee;
O Thou, the Chief Directrix of the Rasa Mandalam;
O Thou dearer to Krisna than His life even, I bow down to Thee.
O Thou, the Mother of the three Lokas!
 O Thou the Ocean of mercy! Be pleased.
Brahma, Visnu and the other Devas bow down before Thy lotus feet.
Thou art Sarasvati; Thou art Savitri; Thou art Shankari;
I bow down to Thee;
Thou art Ganga; Thou art Padmavati; Thou art Sasthi;
 Thou art Mangal? Chandika; Thou art Manasa; Thou art Tulasi;
Thou art Durga; Thou art Bhagavati; Thou art Laksmi;
Thou art all, I bow down to Thee.
 Thou art the Mula Prakriti; Thou art the Ocean of mercy.
Obeisance to Thee!
Be merciful to us and save us from this ocean of Samsara.

She is the object of worship of all.
She is the Mother of all and the Wonderful Shakti of Mahadeva.
She is the Presiding Deity of the intellect (Buddhi) of all,
She controls the hearts of all
and She removes the great difficulties and dangers of all.
Therefore She is named Durga in the world.
She is worshipped by all, whether a Shaiva or a Vaisnava.
She is the Mula Prakriti and from Her
the creation, preservation and destruction of the universe proceed.

Mother, this is the grief that sorely grieves my heart


Mother, this is the grief that sorely grieves my heart,
That even with Thee for Mother,
and though I am wide awake,
There should be robbery in my house.
Many and many a time I vow to call on Thee,
Yet when the time for prayer comes round,
I have forgotten.
Now I see it is all Thy trick.

As Thou hast never given,
so Thou receivest naught;
Am I to blame for this, O Mother?
Hadst Thou but given,
Surely then Thou hadst received;
Out of Thine own gifts I should have given to Thee.
Glory and shame, bitter and sweet, are Thine alone;
This world is nothing but Thy play.
Then why, O Blissful One,
dost Thou cause a rift in it?

Says Ramprasad:
Thou hast bestowed on me this mind,
And with a knowing wink of Thine eyes
Bidden it, at the same time, to go and enjoy the world.
And so I wander here forlorn through Thy creation,
Blasted, as it were, by someone's evil glance,
Taking the bitter for the sweet,
Taking the unreal for the Real.

Brahmacharini
Unmarried maid


Let  the incomparable Goddess Brahmacharini ,
 holding in her lotus like hands the rosary and the water pot,
shower Her grace on me.

Arjuna kruta Durga Stuti


Salutations to the commander of Sidhas, who is noble and lives in forest of Mandhara,
Who is  the virgin Kali who wears  the skulls , who is brown , black and tawny.
 
I salute the gracious Kali , I salute the great Kali,
I salute  the killer of violent Chanda ,
Who  has blessed colour and makes  you cross ocean of Samsara.
 
Oh greatly valorous daughter of kathyayana ,
Oh terrible achiever  of victory  and  triumph,
 Oh Goddess    who has    the flag of peacock feathers,
And who is  decorated with different type of ornaments.
 
Oh terrible user of the spear who carries  the   swords and the shield,
Oh  younger sister of king of gopas, oh elder one  born in the clan of Nanda Gopa.
 
She who likes the blood of Mahishasura , who  lives on silken bench,
One who laughs  boisterously  , one who has face of wolf , Salutations to her who likes  the war.
 
I salute Uma  ,  Shakambari, the white one  , the black one  , one who killed Kaidabha,
One who has golden eyes, one who has slanted eyes and one has great eyes of smoke colour.
 
You are Veda, you are sruthi, you do  greatly blessed deeds,
You are the spirit of Brahma , you were born from Vedas,
You are daily present in the temple with rose apple tree.
 
You are  the knowledge about Brahmam among knowledges.
You are the great sleep among the living beings,
You are the Bhagwathi who is the mother of Skanda,
And you  live on mountains which are inaccessible.
 
You the sound of Swaha, Swadha the food of manes,
You are the superior time, You are Saraswathi ,
You are Savithri , the mother of Vedas ,
And you are also  the inner soul of the Vedas.
 
Oh Great  Goddess , I am praying with a pure and clean heart,
Let victory be mine daily  by your blessing , Oh goddess of the battle field.
 
Oh Goddess    who leads your devotees through  thorny fearful mountains,
Oh Goddess you win over the asuras who daily live   in the nether world.
 
You are the destroyer, the enchanter , the illusion  the chanrts Hreem and Shreem,
You are the dusk, you are bearer of luster , Savithri and also the mother.
 
You are contentment, health , speed  and luster, You increase the effectiveness  of Sun and Moon,
 You are  wealth of those who prosper  and numerous Sidhas and Charanas look forward to you.

I find one vast garden spread out all over the universe.
All plants, all human beings, all higher mind bodies
are about in this garden in various ways ,
each has his own uniqueness and beauty.
Their presence and variety give me great delight.
Every one of you adds with his special feature to the glory of the garden.

Sri Anandamayi Ma

The Rainy Season


The rainy season is abroad
And the skirt of my dress is wet.
You have gone off to distant lands,
And my heart finds it unbearable.
I keep sending letters to my Beloved
Asking when He will return.
Mira's Lord is the courtly Giridhara!
O Krishna, O Brother of Balram,
Grant me thy sight.

Mirabai

A child, a brother, a charioteer, a warrior, a disciple, a guru,
a cowherd, a messenger, the beloved of the gopis...
Throughout his life, Krishna enacted so many roles;
the whole time never forgetting that they were just that, roles,
and that His true nature was eternal and ever blissful consciousness.
 In this way, He was able to remain detached and thus perform flawlessly.
His glory is unsurpassable!

Chandraghanta
She who wears a semi circular moon


Let the famous Chandraghanta  ,
riding on a tiger ,who is intensely  violent and angry ,
shower Her grace on me.


Nava Durga Stotram
verse 3
