Durga, the “Mother Impermeable”

Yesterday was Libra new moon. New moon is the darkest point of the month, also concerning psychic energy. And in spirituality Libra is regarded as the darkest point of the year, where it is more difficult to keep the thread to the light of the soul.

So this time is compared to a bottomless pit into which you can easily fall. It stands for the impermeable Nature causing a veil of illusion. In the east the impermeable Nature is visualised as Durga, the “Mother Impermeable”. Durga means, “impossible to move”.

It says it is very difficult to overcome the illusion of the Mother or the matter, and she stands at the threshold of the illusion of life. Sri Kumar says, “Unless you are in a program of discharging your karma you cannot enter into the inner chambers, and Durga blocks the way.”

Durga is depicted as a lady on a lion, the wild energies of matter. The mantram related to Durga is Dum, or Dum Durgayi Namaha (MP3). The most propitious time to invoke the mantram is on the first 10 days of the ascending moon in the month of Libra.

Last year Sri Kumar wrote, “People interested may contemplate upon the Mother with the lion, with the mantra ‘Dum Durgayei Namaha’. It can be said 108 times in the morning and 108 times in the evening after a shower, putting on fresh clothes and a fresh mind. …. It is an elaborate ritual, which people do not need to pick up. It is enough if they chant the mantra, morning and evening.”

When Durga is invoked, she protects and gives access, we are given the way through.

    “New moon is the darkest point of the month, also concerning psychic energy. And in spirituality Libra is regarded as the darkest point of the year, where it is more difficult to keep the thread to the light of the soul.”

    I do acknowledge Durga as a form of The Mother or Shri Maha Shakti but i still ask myself about why not working with Mâ Kali, the dark Mother if this is the darkest month?
    isn’t she the One that kills darkness and eats ours sins & karmas?

    Kali is another part of The One Mother and in tantra it is said she’s the courrouced form of Durga who is already the warrior side!

    There must be a good reason for Durga and not Kali though i would love that the Master explain it… and aslo anything relative to Kala Bhairava (this is my message sended in the ethers)
    Even if i also remember that curiosity is sometime unappropriate and misleading for disciple athat are still engaged in some “details”…

    Jai Maha Durga Jai

    Devi Durga is the ultimate representation of infinite power, purity and strength of purpose, which resides within the divine essence of every being.

    @ Sébastien
    There are so many names for the same reality – they are just highlighting other aspects. Here the aspect of being impenetrable is in the focus, with Kali it is Kala, time. In the book on Mantrams Master Kumar writes about Durga: “She is also known as Kali.”
