Dear Ones,

SONG OF THE WIND

I was at a pretty graveyard on a windy day, listening to the sound of the wind whistling through the railings in a fence there …

 

GODDESS DURGA

The sound of the wind reminded me of Goddess Durga. Here is my favorite image of her:

And here is some information about her from Wikipedia:

Durga, also identified as Adi ParashaktiDeviShaktiBhavani, Parvati, and by numerous other names, is a principal and popular form of Hindu goddess.[6][7][8] She is the warrior goddess, whose mythology centers around combating evils and demonic forces that threaten peace, prosperity and dharma of the good.[7][9] She is the fierce form of the protective mother goddess, willing to unleash her anger against wrong, violence for liberation and destruction to empower creation.[10]” –from “Durga” in Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durga ..

KRISHNA DAS SINGING ABOUT MAA DURGA

Here is Krishna Das’ beautiful song about Maa Durga. Every time I listen carefully to this shabad, or sacred song, it brings tears to my eyes.
