Devi Mahatmyam (With original Sanskirt Text)

N Hariharan (Author)
Synopsis "Devi Mahatmyam" is a soul-stirring panegyric of the Divine Mother eminently fit for daily recitation with faith and fervour.  The high incantatory power that informs each and every syllable of the sacred text is strongly believed to be capable of securing all benefits both here and hereafter and of warding off evils, even of the worst type.  The text is a devotional vade mecum of sincere Srividya upasakas and is a veritable hymnal conduit through which the devotion of bhaktas gushes towards the Goddess and Her infinite grace is passionately invoked.  Set as a precious treasure in the rich mine of Markandeya Purana, the Holy Text exerts a powerful influence on receptive minds and transforms, by its strange powers of spiritual alchemy, minds steeped in mundane mire into sensitive souls alive to subtle spiritual intimations.  Devi Mahatmyam is also known as Durga Saptasati.  The holy text is a sublime devotional garland consisting of 700 exquisite verse-blossoms picturesquely strung together.  The sacred text provides a vivid pen-picture of the infinite splendour and majesty of Sri Devi in sonorous accents of Sanskrit which enthrall by their phonetic charm and exalt by their devotional spirit.  Devi Mahatmyam and Srimad Bhagavadgita have a few similarities.  While Devi Mahatmyam has 700 mantras, the Gita has 700 verses.  While the Gita is an esoteric text ot Brahmavidya (Science of Spirit) and also Yoga Sastra (treatise of the art of communion with the Divine), Devi Mahatmyam is, primarily, a text of Srividya (the lore of Sri Devi) and Bhakti Sastra (a text of devotion) It should, however, be remembered trhat Srividya and Brahmavidya are, in essence, one and the same.

Sri N. Hariharan was born in the year 1935 and comes of a family of writers.  His grandfather Shri R. Harihara Bharati was a profound Tamil scholar and prolific writer in Tamil.  His father Shri H. Nellaiah, a staunch Gandhian, was an eminent journalist, the first Editor of Virakesari, a Tamil daily in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) and a prolific writer and finished speaker in Tamil.  A post-graduate in Economics, Hariharan served in the FMCG Major Hindustan Lever (now Hindustan Unilever) as a Territory-Sales-in-Charge.  Though his subject of academic pursuit was Economics, he has an innate love for Philosophy, particularly for Vedantic Philosophy.  Sanskrit scriptures and religious classics have a special fascination for him.  He has read widely and continues to browse avidly on the rich corpus of spiritual literature.  He is a felicitous and incisive writer in English on spiritual themes.  His lucid and thought-provoking articles have appeared in the Vedanta Kesari, the Prabuddha Bharata, the Voice of Sankara and Kamakoti Vani (now defunct).  His book on Bhagavadgita entitled "Pilgrimage into the Poem Divine" was widely acclaimed and won positive reviews, in noted journals, by accredited critics and scholars.  He is an ardent devotee of Paramacharya, Sri Ramakrishna and Ramana Maharsi.  He gives forceful and felicitous talks on Viveka Chudamani, Bhagavadgita and other spiritual themes on a regular basis.  All his three sons are dedicated academicians and serve in Indian and American Universities.  His only daughter is married to a highly educated software engineer and she lives in the USA with her husband.  Shri Hariharan lives happily in Madurai with his devout and spiritual-minded wife Prema.  He has seven grandsons.
