THE SAVIOR GODDESS MAHISHASUR MARDINI



Image result for mahishasura mardini images free download

She is dazzlingly beautiful and infinitely gracious in her benevolent aspect,
She is all powerful and blood curdlingly frightening in her terrifying aspect,
She is Shakti, the Mother of the Universe, the luminous embodiment of pure energy,
She is Simhavahini- astride a lion- and the destroyer of evil, the savior of the virtuous.

Durga was created by the trinity of Gods with their concentrated power and energy,

When the whole Earth and even the Heavens were shaking with fear and in jeopardy;
Ever since the menacing and terrifying Mahishasur, the buffalo demon,
Bagged a boon from Lord Shiva that he could be killed by no man.

 Thus ,created by the Gods themselves with a mission to destroy the powerful Mahishasur,
Durga is concentrated pure and Infinite Energy in woman form, built to annihilate evil.
Equipped by the Gods with spears, trident, conch, mace, sword and many a weapon,
Durga fought a terrible battle with the asur and destroyed him, this Goddess among women.

Finally the humans on Earth and the Gods in heaven danced in joy and glee;
So Durga is venerated and worshipped every year during nine days of Navrathri.
As the protector of the virtuous and benevolent savior of the needy,
She is known to her devotees as the great Mahishasur Mardini.

A RUMMY TALE

As he lay there, wallowing in stale rum and self-pity, know not how long;
The red-eyed monster sprang up suddenly from the brimming liquor;
Gulping down a glass of liquid fire, he roared, “Now! Shoot her now!”
“She deserves no pity- who has let you down so badly.”

Drowning in rum, he attempted to raise his head,
Raising placatory hands to his personal devil,
“Now, now, let us not go there, so afar!
Remember, she used to be my cynosure till week last,
It’s just a pity that she was charmed by someone else.”

“Beware if you show any mercy to that unfaithful wretch!”
Growled the beast, spitting out shards of glass in disgust and adding,
“Be a man, take the sharpest knife and plunge it in her heartless heart.”

He cried out loud and pleaded with folded hands,
“No, no, can’t ever do that, please for Heaven’s sake, go away.”
“Then you leave me with no other option,” sighed the monster,
Stabbing him straight through the heart.

“Cardiac arrest due to excessive sorrow and stress”-

LOVELINESS

LOVELINESS

Loveliness is not all about physical beauty,
It is also
A smile shimmering through tear- stained eyes,
A widening grin ironing out an elder's wrinkles,
A mother's joy seeing her child eating well,
A couple embracing joyfully in reunion,
A calf jumping about in joy around mother cow,
And many more...

RIGHT WRONG

Seeing her eyes glow in excitement,
Obviously though she has it all wrong,
I rush to grab the correction opportunity,

Till I have another look at the gleam in her eyes.

Hell, I think, let me be wrong a hundred times over,
If only to preserve that glorious joy,

Rather than prove her wrong
And watch her enthusiasm wither.
