All ways of knowledge are your aspects, O Devi; so are all women in the world, endowed with various attributes. By you alone, O Mother, this world is filled.
Chandi, II, 6
The sadhak must get rid of these lawless villains within. With Mother Durga's kripa, these destructive masters are to be annihilated. Invoke the Mother to help us annihilate within ourselves all negative forces; all weaknesses, all littleness.
The Goddess in Her aspect as Power, to bestow upon man all wealth, auspiciousness, prosperity, knowledge, and all other potent powers... Everyone is blessed with Her loving mercy and is protected by Her.
During Navaratri, Goddess Durga is invoked first to remove impurities from the mind. The Goddess Lakshmi is invoked to cultivate the noble values and qualities. Finally, Saraswati is invoked for gaining the highest knowledge of the Self.
Oh Goddess, you who remove distress of all who take refuge in you, be
pleased. Be pleased, Oh Mother of the entire Perceivable World. Be
pleased, Oh Supreme of the Universe; protect the universe. Oh Goddess,
you are Supreme over all that moves and does not move.
Sri Narayani Stuti
