    Mother Durga and Kali, both beautiful aspects of Devi.
    “Ajita vaama parshwe tu dakshine cha aparajita”
    With her by my side, I wish to be born a thousand times a woman…!
    On this auspicious day, I seek your blessings and wishing you all a devotion filled, dazzling shubh-diwali!

      Dear Shubha
      Many thanks for bringing warm Diwali greetings! Hope you also enjoyed Diwali in its true spirit.
      Devi worship as Mother is a unique feature in our Sanatana dharma. Ajita and Aparajita may mean the same thing – cannot be vanquished – which shows the Woman Power where victory is an essential element in Life. Your wish is nothing but an expression of this. Sarvada Vijayee bhava!

  2. Om Namo Bhagavate Ramakrishnaya
    Jai Kali Mayai ki
    Revered and dear Maharaj,
    Please accept my pranam. Many thanks for presenting in one place the famous poem of Swamiji ‘Kali the Mother’, the major incident in his life of his acceptance of Mother Kali and the Great Master‘s first vision of Kali.
    The account of Vaikuntanath Sanyal who visits Dakshineswar the next day is also very sweet:

    “Coming to Dakshineswar at noon, I found the Master alone in his room and Narendra sleeping outside. Sri. Ramakrishna was in a joyous mood, and as soon as I saluted him he said, pointing to Narendra “…….Returning from the temple, he asked me to teach him a song to the Mother, which I did. The whole of the night, he sang that song. So, he is sleeping now.” Then with an unfeigned delight, he said, “Isn’t it wonderful that Narendra has accepted Mother?’ I said, ‘Yes’. After a brief pause, he repeated the question, and then it went on for some time.”

    (The Life of Swami Vivekananda – by his eastern and western disciples, p 96-97)
    The song is ‘Ma Tvam hi Tara’
    With pranam once again,
    TSSitaraman
