Aparajita Stotram Class
Worship of Goddess Lakshmi on the no moon day of the Hindu lunar month of Ashvin. On day of Dussehra, doing the physical act of the worship of the Goddess transforms the expressed bhav of an embodied soul into an unexpressed one and thereby helps in maintaining its stability. Aparajita is a destroyer form of Goddess Durga. Aparajita manifests from the womb of the earth with the help of the absolute earth element. This manifestation of Goddess Aparajita is for the sake of souls on the Earth.
Aparajita Stotram –
This form of the Goddess which establishes itself on the throne of the eight petals carries a trident and with the help of Deity Shiva, seeking assistance from the Devatas of directions and the Devtas of the premise, destroys the demoniacal energies. When Goddess Aparajita apaarajita on the throne of the eight petals emerges from the womb of the earth in response to prayers of devotees, the Devtas of the eight directions also manifest to welcome Her.
The tips of the eight petals represent these eight Devtas. The destroyer frequencies generated from creation of Goddess Aparajita through the medium of the aparajiha Devtas destroy the accumulated raja-tama energy purifying the atmosphere to help people on the earth to lead an obstacle-free life.
The Aparajitx form of Goddess Durga is worshipped near the Shami tree because Shami leaves are good conservers of energy and they conserve the energy of Aparajita that manifests in the form of fountains, for long periods. People storam from this conserved energy of Goddess Aparajita by preserving these leaves in their homes.
Dirt in the stottram is a symbol of raja-tama attributes. Since midnight is the period that generates maximum amount of raja-tama frequencies, this act is done to purify the premises and to facilitate the entry of sattva frequencies into it, so that after ritualistic worship of Goddess Lakshmi maximum benefit of chaitanya is obtained.
By worshipping both these Devtas on this day, the bhav and devotion of the embodied soul increases and the bhav lasts for 3 hours. During gondhal a loud absolute fire element oriented sound is generated by impact and Energy frequencies get attracted to this sound.
This restricts the movements of the negative energies within the room and many of them are destroyed in a short span of time. As a result, the benefit of the Energy frequencies lasts for a longer period. During Navaratri, since the Energy principle associated with the absolute fire element is active, a gondhal done then derives greater benefits from it.
These embodied souls are included in the devotees of the Goddess because for generations they have been worshipping Her. They are also termed as messengers or servants. Using their powerful energy laden speech they invoke the Goddess and are able to awaken Stotrqm destroyer form.
This pleading symbolises a decrease in the ego of the embodied soul and is directed towards merging the Goddess principle within oneself into Her holy feet.
The true form of this worship is partaking of food cooked from alms of ingredients like flour, salt, etc. This act, not only reduces the ego, but also helps in developing detachment.
