All Activity Home IndiaDivine. What is the meaning of Ambhrani sukta? Rate this topic 1 2 3 4 5. Recommended Posts. Guest guest. Report post. Posted May 16, Namaste all. Cany any sanskrit knowers help me know the meaning of this Suktam? Thanks in advance. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites.

Does this mean Ugra the rudra by any means? Who is Vak Ambhrani? Is she Goddess Lakshmi ,Sarswati or Parvati? Dwaitans say she is Lakshmi. Some may say she is sarswati. It would be helpful if someone could come up with details. Thank You. In me only the whole of Universe, illusory and subject to suppression like the silver seen in an oyster, seems like existing.

The Maya seems to be generated as the World by modification. All these described in these mantras are generated with aloof Brahman as the basis due to this Maya. I think vAk is saraswatI.

But in rg veda, sarasvatI is also a river. Not sure if both are same. You may want to try looking at sayana's commentary on rg veda. I think that would also represent the traditional advaita point of view or atleast the smarta point of view. As far as I know, Shankara has not written a commentary on rg veda.

Posted May 17, I remember having read at www. Dave, a Member at Ambaa-l Group. However, my efforts today to locate that essay have failed. Try your luck and if you succeed, please let me know and help me too. This is what i feel about the translation: 1. It should be 'exceedingly mighty'. Otherwise, in my opinion, the translation is alright for the portion under reference. The word 'ugra' has this meaning of 'mighty'. Pranams, subbu.

The Wilson translation uses the word 'formidable', instead of '. Very interesting thread! Since Durga devi is also known as 'rudrani' wife of Rudra - her attributes can be described in my number of ways!

As adi shankara Bhagvadapada says even Lord Shanmukha with his six mouths cannot describe her various glories? Devisukta is a hymn of eight verses found in the most ancient Hindu sacred text, the Rig Veda in the 10th mandala.

HThe Devisukta RV Among Shaktas this Vedic hymn is held in high esteem and is considered to be the source from which the entire Chandi sprang.

As the gods witnessed this fiery crest of energy pervading all the directions and blazing forth like a mountain peak aflame with the sun, this matchless energy that sprang from the bodies of all the gods, its light illuminating the three worlds, became concentrated in one spot and took form of the Goddess. Her face was from the light of Shiva.

Her ten arms were from Lord Vishnu. Her feet were from Lord Brahma. The tresses were formed from the light of Yama god of death and the two breasts were formed from the light of Somanath Moon God , the waist from the light of Indra the king of gods , the legs and thighs from the light of Varun god of oceans , and hips from the light of Bhoodev Earth , the toes from the light of Surya Sun God , fingers of the hand from the light of the Vasus the children of Goddess river Ganga and nose from the light of Kuber the keeper of wealth for the Gods.

The teeth were formed from the light of Prajapati the lord of creatures , the Triad of her eyes was born from the light of Agni Fire God , the eyebrows from the two Sandhyas sunrise and sunset , the ears from the light of Vayu god of Wind. Thus from the energy of these gods, as well as from many other gods, was formed the goddess Durga.

Lord Shiva gave her a trident while Lord Vishnu gave her a disc. Varuna, gave her a conch and noose, and Agni gave her a spear. From Vayu, she received arrows. Indra, gave her a thunderbolt, and the gift of his white-skinned elephant Airavata was a bell. From Yama, she received a sword and shield and from Vishwakarma god of Architecture , an axe and armor. The god of mountains, Himavat gifted her with jewels and a lion to ride on.

Durga was also given many other precious and magical gifts, new clothing, and a garland of immortal lotuses for her head and breasts. The beautiful Durga, bedecked in jewels and golden armor and equipped with the fearsome weaponry of the gods, was ready to engage in battle with the fierce and cruel Mahishasura.

This hymn, though the name vac does not appear in it, is the most magnificent chant to this feminine principle, the devi of the supreme power, which later on would be known under the name of shakti.

Vac was before all creation, preexisting before any being came to be. It was she who initiated the creative process. The first two stanzas require a total immersion into the Vedic world in order for their full meaning to be grasped. With a beauty of their own, they say in solemn cadences that the Word is not only the First of the whole Vedic pantheon, but that she has a unique place, for her nature is not to be compared with that of any other being, whether created or uncreated.

The Word is not only an integral part of the sacrifice; she is also the Queen who commands homage in every sphere and who, expressing herself under different forms, remains essentially the unique Word that preserves the unity of all worship.

Vac is the lifegiving principle within all beings, even if they do not recognize this fact; she is the wind, the breath of life. She is the mother, attentive to the needs of both Gods and Men. She bestows her gifts and favors graciously and freely. She, existing from all eternity, reveals the Father and for the sake of creatures "begets" him who otherwise would remain utterly disconnected and nonexistent In the Bangalore Ramakrishna Mutt there was one Swami Purushottamanandaji, an expert singer of devotional songs.

He had trained a group of women to sing this Mahishasuramardini stotram attributed to Adi Shankara in a very enchanting way. It is a divine treat to listen to that rendering by those 'devis'. A scholar told me that this stotram is also a treasure house of material for Alankara shastra. Ananta koti namaskarams Subbuji! Subbalaxmi has also sung this sloka!

Posted May 18, Muralidharan uploaded in the ambaa. Posted May 19, But to another hath she shown her beauty as a fond well-dressed woman to her husband. I am the One who bears fruit for all who seek Divine Love. I am the Lady ruling the whole Universe.

I am the One who brings wealth of joy to my worshippers. It is I to whom all the deities give service. Whoever consumes Food does so only by my Grace and Power. For, I am beyond both earth and heaven. Oh, indeed such is my Glory. This is the most ancient statement of the divinity of an incarnate being in the literature of the world spoken by a woman. Enjoy the hymn of Divine speech! For those of you who are interested , pl read Raimon Pannikkar's 'Vedic Experience' - a Benedictan monk who has narrated the 'wisdom' of the vedas in a unique , highly readable style.
