Day .3 Shakti Yantra Practise

A brilliant awe inspiring vision , epitome of fearless strength, vanquisher of evil, generous beyond measure...... These are just a few of the many many words of praise that can't even begin to describe the might and glory of the goddess, Durga.

Durga is the unified symbol of all divine forces. She emerged from the combined effulgent radiance of all the powerful divine beings to annihilate extreme evil, in the form of asuras, who threatened their very existence. The rising might of the asuras was threatening the balance of creation and their brute strength was so great that the devatas found themselves helpless against these enemies. They realized the only way to vanquish the enemies was to join forces. Thence emerged Durga, armed with all the most powerful, attributes and weapons of each devata and emerged victorious in the battle against evil. 

Invoke her strength and grace whenever you find yourself quivering in the face of evil.These may be in the form of external forces and might stem out of, egotism,selfishness, and malicious intent to harm others. But the more powerful enemies are the internal ones in the guise of errant thoughts..
Sloth, cowardice, anger, jealousy, gluttony, fear, all arise within us as a vast army of untamed thoughts, assailing us, often taking us unaware and destroying peace of mind. These are the real enemies,that have a debilitating effect on the capacity to live a joyful fulfilling life. 

When the mind unleashes its army of negative thoughts, call out to maa Durga. Awaken her brilliant energy within. Within the space of your heart visualize her warm red glow, giving you her strength, disciplining the errant ones and vanquishing the evil ones. 

Working with her yantra, visualize all her power , strength
and grace flowing into your heart, coursing through your veins .

~I am brave
~I am the master of my existence and my mind is a tool under my command.
~I choose positive strengthening thoughts.
~Fear is a choice but so is courage. I choose to be courageous.

Color: Bright reds, orange, yellow and gold
