Explanations based upon the writings of Shree Devadatta Kali
Devisukta is a hymn of eight verses found in the most ancient Hindu sacred text, the Rig Veda (in the 10th mandala).
The Devisukta (RV 10.125) declares that the Goddess is the power expressed through all the gods, that they are united in her who shines with consciousness, that her presence is all-pervading, that she supports all of creation, that she is the source of righteousness and the revealer of truth, that she is the source of all worlds, yet that she shines transcendent beyond them. Among Shaktas this Vedic hymn is held in high esteem and is considered to be the source from which the entire Chandi sprang. Later, the Chandi itself was elaborated upon in the Puranas and Tantras.
The Chandi goes by two other names. The most common and widely recognized is Devimahatmya [The Glory of the Goddess]. The other is Sri Durga Saptashati [Seven Hundred Verses to Sri Durga].
As autumn draws near, the worship of Goddess Durga extends over the nine colourful nights of Navratri. The scriptural treasure of India contains an invaluable gem in the form of 'Durga Saptashati', a special saptashati that was created with 700 select Shlokas of the Markandeya Puran. Essentially, it covers three main incarnations of the Goddess, namely - Mahakali, Mahalakshami and Mahasaraswati. This concept forms the core of a new audio release from Times Music titled "Durga Saptashati".
