Discourse by Rev. Dr. Swami Bhajanananda Saraswati on Devi Gita, chapter 1, verses 17-19, given on Zoom to students of the Ramakrishna Seminary at Kali Mandir on 20 April 2022.

 

लालने ताडने मातुर्नाकारुण्यं यथाऽर्भके | तद्वदेव जगन्मातुर्नियन्त्र्या गुणदोषयोः || १७ ||

lālane tāḍane mātur-nākāruṇyaṃ yathā'rbhake | tadvad-eva jagan-mātur-niyantryā guṇa-doṣayoḥ || 17 ||

17. "As a mother feels no lack of compassion whether indulging or chastening her child, Just so the World-Mother feels when overseeing our virtues and vices."

 

अपराधो भवत्येव तनयस्य पदे पदे | कोऽपरः सहते लोके केवलं मातरं विना || १८ ||

aparādho bhavatyeva tanayasya pade pade | ko'paraḥ sahate loke kevalaṃ mātaraṃ vinā || 18 ||

18. "A son transgresses the limits of proper conduct at every step: Who in the world forgives him except his mother?"

 

तस्माद्यूयं पराम्बां तां शरणं यात मा चिरम् | निर्व्याजया चित्तावृत्त्या सा वः कार्यं विधास्यति || १९ ||

tasmād-yūyaṃ parāmbāṃ tāṃ śaraṇaṃ yāta mā ciram | nirvyājayā cittāvṛttyā sā vaḥ kāryaṃ vidhāsyati || 19 ||

19. "Therefore go for refuge to the supreme Mother without delay, With sincere hearts. She will accomplish what you want."
