Divya Jivan NewsletterMay 2012
" Devi is synonymous with Sakti or the Divine Power that manifests, sustains and transforms the universe as the one unifying force of Existence. In fact, worship of Devi is not sectarian; it does not belong to any cult. By Devi or Sakti we mean the presupposition of all forms of existential power, the power of knowledge, of omniscience. These powers are the glorious attributes of Godóyou may call Him Vishnu or Siva or as you like. In other words, Sakti is the very possibility of the Absoluteís appearing as many, of Godís causing this universe. Sakti and Sakta are one; the Power and the one who possesses the Power cannot be separated; God and Sakti are like fire and heat of fire."
"Devi-worship or Sakti-worship is therefore worship of Godís
glory, of Godís greatness and supremacy. It is adoration of the
Almighty" - Swami Sivananda
The immanence of God
" It is that immanence is key to divinity. Awareness of Godís presence within and without, in all beings, in all creatures, in all nature becomes the key, the secret of living in the awareness of the Yoga of the eleventh chapter of the Bhagavad Gita, the Yoga of the first verse of the Isopanishad."
"What more can I say? Be aware, be aware of God, aware of your relationship to Him, and make your life sublime and divine and attain the supreme, grand goal of all spiritual aspiration, of all spiritual life, of all spiritual sadhana, of all spiritual living, the grand goal of God-consciousness and divine perfection and liberation."- Swami Chidananda << More>>
