Mantra of the Month: Durga Pahimam

Durga Pahimam

Hey Ma Durga, Hey Ma Durga
Hey Ma Durga, Rakshamam
Hey Ma Durga, Hey Ma Durga
Hey Ma Durga, Pahimam
Om Dum Durgayei Namaha

As we celebrate the beginning of Navratri with devotion to the Divine Mother, let us chant to Goddess Durga, the fierce, demon-fighting form of Shiva’s wife. She manifests fearlessness, fierce compassion and patience, and never loses her sense of humor even during spiritual battles of epic proportion. She helps us to fight our demons, especially negativity.

Durga Pahimam
Hey Ma Durga, Hey Ma Durga
Oh Mother Durga, Oh Mother Durga

Hey Ma Durga, Rakshamam
Oh Mother Durga, You are my protector

Hey Ma Durga, Hey Ma Durga
Oh Mother Durga, Oh Mother Durga

Hey Ma Durga, Pahimam
Oh Mother Durga, You are my savior — I offer myself completely to you, now I am no longer mine, I am Yours

Om Dum Durgayei Namaha
Om and Salutations to She who is beautiful to the seeker of truth and terrible in appearance to those who would injure devotees of truth.

Jai Uttal’s hauntingly beautiful version that will capture your heart
