Chandi is the mother of the universe. She is considered to be Maha Kali, Maha Lakshmi, and Maha Saraswati combined into one form. She is also known as Devi Durga who manifested from the powers of all the Gods like Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva and Dikpalakas to destroy the demons. According to Markandeya Purana, Chandi is the Yogomaya of Lord Vishnu. She destroyed demons (rakshasaas) like Madhu, Kaitava, Shumbha, Nishumbha, Chanda, Munda, Raktabija, Dhumrakshana and the main demon Mahishasura during the nine days of the Navaratri in the month of Aswayuja. These demons are nothing but the demonic qualities of a human being. Praying to Goddess Chandi will destroy all these bad qualities in us.
某個提供今年印度聖母節行程之部落格，如此形容Chandi Homam： http://bawandinesh.name/?p=391 The Chandi Homam (One of the most profound experiences anyone can have with Guruji), its followed by the most sumptious lunch that you can imagine with more than 25 items all lovingly cooked right here in the Ashram. This day, you are supposed to overeat and see to it that the people next to you also are stuffed to their ears!
