Ever since I heard the full version of our national anthem, I have made the stanza from it as my prayers to Ma Durga , Ma Saraswathi and Ma Lakshmi . These three Divine mothers are different Incarnations of our Bharatma, who is the source of our Power, wisdom and wealth.
त्वं हि दुर्गा दशप्रहरणधारिणी
वाणी विद्यादायिनी, नमामि त्वाम्
नमामि कमलां अमलां अतुलां
सुजलां सुफलां मातरम्
! वन्दे मातरम् !
For thou art Durga holding her ten weapons of war,
Kamala at play in the lotuses
And speech, the goddess, giver of all lore,
to thee I bow!
I bow to thee, goddess of wealth
pure and peerless,
Swami Vivekananda had said in Madras in 1897 that if the people worship only ‘Bharat Mata’ for 50 years, this country would become great. Swami Vivekananda’s prediction came true as the country became free in 1947, If the people continued this for another 100 years, India would have been the superpower/jagadguru by now. So let us not delay it further..
!! VandeMataram !!
