.... a nice exposition of devotional philosophy in Shakti tradition is found in the Devi-Mahatmayam, popularly revered as Durga Saptashati. Shakti as a Supreme Mother has found an elaborate position in this highly occult scripture of the Shaktas. Devi is adored with the name of Mahakali, Mahalakshmi and Mahasaraswati. This sacred scripture is a section of the Markandeya Purana. It is multi-dimentional in spirit, devotional in Stuti and philosophic in approach. It throws sufficient light on Jnana-Karma-Bhakti. Through this triadic approach, a Sadhaka enters in the Divine laboratry, putting on the Kavacham/apron of various moods of the Divine Mother, around the spiritual atmosphere during the Navaratra Puja. Mystic Glory of Devi Mahatmayam is mystic classic of great celebrity. Want of an English translation cum annotation and commentary was keenly felt and hence this publication. It is based on the Shakti Yoga, Kashmir Shakta and mystic tradition.
