Scripture class on Devi Gita, Chapter I, verses 3-5, by Rev. Dr. Swami Bhajanananda Sarasawti given on Zoom to students of Ramakrishna Seminary at Kali Mandir on 16 March 2022.
व्यास उवाच धन्य्ऽओसि कृतकृत्य्ऽओसि शिक्षित्ऽओसि महात्मभिः | भाग्यवानसि यद्-देव्यां निर्व्याजा भक्तिरस्ति ते || ३ ||
vyāsa uvāca dhany'osi kṛta-kṛty'osi śikṣit'osi mahātma-bhiḥ | bhāgyavān-asi yad-devyāṃ nirvyājā bhaktirasti te || 3 ||
Vyasa said: "You are blessed and completely fulfilled; you have been taught by those of great heart and you are fortunate, for you possess true devotion to the Goddess."
शृणु राजन्पुरा वृत्तं सतीदेहेऽग्निभर्जिते | भ्रान्तः शिवस्तु बभ्राम क्वचिद्देशे स्थिरोऽभवत् || ४ ||
śṛṇu rājan-purā vṛttaṃ satī-dehe'gni-bharjite | bhrāntaḥ śivastu babhrāma kvacid-deśe sthiro'bhavat || 4 ||
"Hear, O King, this ancient tale. When the body of Sati was consumed in flames, the bewildered Shiva wandered about, falling here and there motionless on the ground."
प्रपञ्चमानरहितः समाधिगतमानसः | ध्यायन्देवीस्वरूपं तु कालं निन्ये स आत्मवान् || ५ ||
prapañca-māna-rahitaḥ samādhi-gata-mānasaḥ | dhyāyan-devī-svarūpaṃ tu kālaṃ ninye sa ātmavān || 5 ||
"He was unaware of the manifest world, His mind being fully absorbed. Regaining His self-composure, He passed the time contemplating the true form of the Goddess."
