Food for thought
“Mother Durgā is the Power Terrible.
The greatest enemies in man’s bosom such as selfishness, jealousy, hatred and greed, which loot his inner peace and bliss, have to be totally annihilated for man to reach the abode of everlasting happiness.
There is no room for persuasion or softness in dealing with these arch enemies of man. They have to be ruthlessly struck and destroyed. By worshipping Durgā, this idea of ruthless destruction is invoked to annihilate all the desires and unfold divinity.”
-Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda Saraswati
