Navaratri and Chandi Path

The story of the goddess who protects and restores order to the universe is told in the 700 verse Chandi Path, also known as the Durga Saptashati.  During Navaratri this ancient text is recited every day, once in the morning as a part of the fire ceremony called Chandi Havan, and once in the evening.  These powerful mantras have a great purifying effect.

This podcasts provides an introduction to the yearly celebration called Navaratri and the Chandi Path mantra.  The first podcast presents an overview of Navaratri and the subsequent listings present the Chandi Path text in its entirety.
