So what’s up, eh? Is this a super-secwet symbolic win for the advocates of Bharat Pita over Bharat Mata? Or is Facebook just SUPER down with India’s current “look back and regress” agenda?
Well, either way, I hope the chant that welcomes the goddess on earth for the next fifteen days comes true in all our lives, irrespective of religious identity.
Ya devi sarvabhuteshu, shaktirupen sansthita; Ya devi sarvabhuteshu, buddhirupen sansthita; ya devi sarvabhuteshu, pushtirupen sansthita; ya devi sarvabhuteshu, brittirupen sansthita; ya devi sarvabhuteshu, nidrarupen sansthita; Ya devi sarvabhuteshu, shantirupen sansthita.
May the goddess, whose essence pervades all creation, come into your life as strength. May she come into your life as wisdom, as nutrition, as a decent livelihood, and as life-restoring sleep. And may she bring peace with her coming, both in your life and mine.
