In the Devi-Mahatmyam, the Devi, goddess, is called into being by the grace of gods for the protection of the world. Her birth is unique, in that her form derives from each of the god who directs his respective light from his core to a single meeting place. It’s at that point that the Devi manifests. The goddess is said to be incredibly beautiful, kind, fierce, loving, generous, protective, the power and manifestation of the masculine force.
In mythology, the goddess is brought forth by worship of the devotees to the gods and the gods desire to manifest out of themselves their greatest protection. Therefore, the Devi represents gods’ power manifested into form for the sake of dharmic protection.
Though she is a fierce warrior who faces many formidable foes on the battlefield, the devi is never alone for at the core of her being resides the luminous masculine from which she derives her life force and strength.
The story of the gods union, begins with that of Shiva and Shakti. It is a story as old as time, found in such concepts as, Yin and Yang, masculine and feminine, and Nada and Bindu (Energy and Consciousness). Back when I was in my training years, my own guru, Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati, instructed us daily saying that it is the job of every yogini/yogi-in-training to unify energy and consciousness through yogic practice. The question the seeker is left with is ‘How do I do that? How do I draw nada and bindu into my life? How to unify energy with consciousness?’ Its simpler than we think, just as Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz simply had to click her heels three times saying, “I want to go home,” so we simply need to show up to our practice on a regular basis with a sincere heart and a desire to realize that union within and the meeting of nada and bindu or Shiva and Shakti will naturally blossom in our hearts.
