Thought on ~ 9th October 2008 Sw-abaya9

Bharatiyas have been celebrating the Navarathri festival from ancient times as a mode of worship of Devi, the Divine as mother. They worship the goddesses Durga, Lakshmi, and Saraswati during these nine days. The significance of Durga, Lakshmi, and Saraswati has to be rightly understood. The three goddesses represent the three kinds of potencies in man: Ichchaa Shakti (will power), Kriya Shakti (the power of purposeful action), and Jnana Shakti (the power of discernment). Saraswati is manifest in man as Vaak (the power of speech). Durga is present in the form of energy and dynamism. Lakshmi is manifest in the form of will power. The body indicates purposeful action - Kriya Shakti. The mind is the repository of will power - Ichchaa Shakti. The Atma is the power of discernment - Jnana Shakti.
