Description: This hypnotic hymn is not for the weak of heart or for those in mental or emotional comfort zones. It depicts the gory details of a woman slaying a buffalo-demon. Acceptance of this 'unsanitized spirituality' hymn to Mother requires unflinching devotion and moral fibres stronger than steel, such as belonged to Sri Ramkrishna Parmahamsa. Popularly, this hymn is ascribed to Bhagavatpada Jagadguru Sri Adya Shankaracharya. However, like many works which are said to be his, this may or may not be so. There are several versions of this hymn, including regional variations as it is immensely popular across Bharat. The version used in this video is given in Devanagari script with an English transliteration at: http://chinmayasaaket.org/resources/stotras/Several English translations of this hymn are available on the web: http://shaktisadhana.50megs.com/Newhomepage/shakti/mahishasuramardini.html ; http://www.hindudevotionalblog.com/2008/09/mahishasura-mardini-stotram-lyrics.htmlA fairly objective overview of the tradition from which the hymn arises is given at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shaktismand http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TantraThe main content of this hymn is glorification of Her who has slain the buffalo-demon. The meaning of this incident is given at: http://www.speakingtree.in/public/view-article/Getting-inspired-by-Shakti_18241 and at http://archives.amritapuri.org/amma/2005/503mahisha.phpA DVD of this session is also available for sale while a short section of another mass chanting is available at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9TaK4yynBM. A discourse on its verse-by-verse meaning is also available for sale: http://www.amazon.com/Mahishasura-Mardini-Stotram-Chanting-Booklet/dp/B000V92VE8 The reciter of this hymn experiences a deep sense of mystic grandeur, each time. Even the casual listener can catch some of the magnetism within this deeply symbolic hymn. For a simple introduction to this symbolism, reflect on: http://devdutt.com/riding-the-beast/Most of us tend to accept the beautiful and good/right as belonging to the spiritual, while delegating all that is not to either the material or hell. This hymn introduces us to all three spheres within ourselves, each one of us. And it depicts the inner wars that need to be won before a step on the spiritual path can be taken. Anyone who accepts outer enemies/illwill will be limited to the lyrical quality of the hymn, thereby loosing on the deep truths hidden in this hymn and an oppourtunity to move, inwardly.

mahishasur mardini stotram complete ayi girinandini
This stotram has composed by sri Adi Shankara charya .Many verses glorifying the beauty and Divinity of Sree Mata. The One composition that we adore most is the famous ' Ayi Giri Nandini' Stotram'. Every Stanza in the song ends with this refrain 'Jaya jaya he Mahisasura MArdini Ramya kapardini Shailasuthe . Mahisasura (The evil) is no less powerful, in fact it is powerful than the Mightier, the gods. He is intelligent, brave and strong. All the gods come together and create a power "Shakti" which has the combination of all powers from all the gods together. This is manifested in the form of Durga. or nine days a fierce battle was fought. Mahisa changed forms many times from Buffalo to Lion to man to elephant every time putting up stiff resistance. But Durga's infinite power (shakti) was finally able to pin down Mahisa 's buffalo form beneath her foot and she thrusts her spear into his heart and her mighty sword cuts his head into two while her mount lion (tiger) attacks mahisa's groins! In the myth, with her charm and valour, she lures Mahisha and finally overpowers him. And along with Durga Mata we are also saluting the Demon Mahisasur under her feet. Yes, when slain by the great goddess Durga, Mahisasur attained Moksha or salvation at her Lotus feet ! . This imagery is very powerful as well as very symbolic -- the triumph of Good over evil. Bhukti -- mukti Pradayini -- Durga devi ! Giver of material enjoyment and salvation ! her two hands -- One has Varada Mudra ( Boon ...
The immortal song in praise of Mother!!!
Mahishasura Mardini Stotram: This is a stotram with flowing yet ringing sounds. The stotram sounds simply wash over a listener irrespective of whether one understand the meaning or not. It is unclear when exactly and who composed this exemplary stotram, the sound of which is both soothing and agitating at the same time. Some believe this very popular stotram of Goddess Durga was written by Ramakrishna Kavi. Nothing more is known about the author. Tenali Rama was also known as Ramakrishna and he was a devotee of Durga. But there is no clear evidence that he wrote this. Some believe it is by Adi Shankaracharya who wrote this in a blitz of sudden divine inspiration. Adi Shankara was not really known as a devotee of Durga and most of his other known compositions are full of philosophical meaning and not just blissful play of sounds in praise of Gods or Goddesses. Due to its very poetic nature and repetition of words in the same stanza but with enormously different meanings, this strotram is extremely difficult to translate. Any translation reads extremely disjointed - as if the lyricist just moved from beautiful flowers to a ferocious battle between one word and the very next. It is the musical play of sounds and not meaning of the words that make this stotram truly remarkable.
