Scripture class by Rev. Dr. Swami Bhajanananda Saraswati on Devi Gita, chapter 1, verses 28 - 30 given to students of the Ramakrishna Seminary at Kali Mandir on 22 June 2022 on Zoom.

विद्युत्कोटिसमानाभमरुणं तत्परं महः |
नैव चोर्ध्वं न तिर्यक्च न मध्ये परिजग्रभत् || २८ ||

vidyut-koṭi-samānā-bhamaruṇaṃ tat-paraṃ mahaḥ |
naiva cordhvaṃ na tiryak-ca na madhye pari-jagrabhat || 28 ||

"Flashing like ten million streaks of lightning tinged with red, that supreme lustrous power shone forth encompassed above, across, and in the middle."

आद्यन्तरहितं तत्तु न हस्ताद्यङ्गसंयुतम् |
न च स्त्रीरूपमथवा न पुंरूपमथोभयम् || २९ ||

ādyantara-hitaṃ tattu na hastādyaṅga-saṃyutam |
na ca strī-rūpam-athavā na puṃ-rūpam-athobhayam || 29 ||

"Without beginning or end, it had no body, no hands, no other limbs, nor did it have a woman’s form, a man’s form, nor the two combined."

दीप्त्या पिधानं नेत्राणां तेषामासीन्महिपते |
पुनश्च धैर्यामालम्ब्य यावत् ते ददृशुः सुराः || ३० ||

dīptyā pidhānaṃ netrāṇāṃ teṣāmāsīn-mahipate |
punaśca dhairyām-ālambya yāvat te dadṛśuḥ surāḥ || 30 ||

"The dazzling brilliance blinded the eyes of the gods O King. When again their vision returned, the gods beheld..."
