On the eve of Dinesh’s birthday was the grand Chandi Homa… He wrote a poem celebrating Navaratri and the three Devis – Goddesses Durga, Laxmi and Saraswati.
Here it is for you to enjoy! Have a lovely day.
Nine months in mother’s womb, define and shape us
Floating in fluid love, finely foretells our future thus.
Nine nights of Navratri too, navigate the coming years
Spent with the Guru, spawn smiles and grateful tears.
First three days of Durga represent valour supreme
End of Mahishasura; laziness in the bloodstream.
Stop procrastinating, take baby steps to clear Tamas
Start now! What are you waiting for? Christmas?!
Next three days of Laxmi, signify riches of type eight,
Who am I (realization of our source) ‘n courage great,
Knowledge, wealth, health to enjoy food and share it,
Joy from children, power to rule and the victory spirit.
Atop the lotus on the water, sits glorious goddess Laxmi
Wealth is capricious, up and down like waves in the sea.
Married to spirituality, Lord Narayana the magnificent
So use rajas to act wise, serve others and be diligent.
Last three days of Sattvic Saraswati, the resplendent
Guardian of fine arts, speech ‘n wisdom transcendent.
Seated majestically on the rock, with her sight internal
Signifying shelf life of wisdom, unlike wealth, is eternal.
To be free of disease, stress, violence, and apathy
Worship the three, Durga, Laxmi and Saraswati.
Embodying wondrous valour wealth and wisdom
They bring beauty in life, success and freedom.
