Sri Devi Lila. The Play of the Divine Mother.
As found in the Srimad Devi Bhagavatam and Sri Devi Mahatmyam and various other scriptural sources. Narrated by Vanamali.
Our first relationship in the world is through the mother. The earliest memory of any person is that of clinging to the mother’s breast and looking into her love-filled eyes. The comfort and security, which the infant gains from this relationship, last with him all his life. In the mother is centred a whole world of tenderness, comfort and sustenance. To transfer this concept to a cosmic being was a natural step, which all the ancient cultures took. Therefore the concept of the Divine as the Mother is as old as life itself. Devi is the Divine Mother, the eternal womb of all creatures – human, sub-human and animals. She cradles her children in her loving arms, suckles them and nurtures them with her infinite love. Wherever you see maternal love, in a bird or animal or human, know that to be the love of the Devi for her children, for she is the universal mother. This book takes us on ancient quest to unravel the mystery of the Divine Mother in all her manifold aspects.
