Daughter of the Mountain
When you go to the Himalayas only for sightseeing, your senses become
captive of the breathtaking beauty of the mountain. But when you go there
for spiritual seclusion things are altogether different. You need to prepare
yourself first for such an experience. Because along with beauty you also
see unity. You will find a spiritual ecosystem flourishing everywhere. Then
you will understand what is expansion of consciousness that scriptures keep
talking about. Then your heart joyfully sings -
O darling of Shiva! Daughter of the Mountain, giver of blessings, who applies paste of
turmeric on her body, who sports a bewitching smile, who is kula-kundalini
for the wise....
O Goddess! who has pity on her devotees, In past , in present and in
future, In sleep , in dream and even when I am awake, By mind, by words and
by my action, Let me be able to worship you always....
O Mother of all yogis! Do not make any more delay in destroying our
ignorance. Take us to your abode... We salute you again and again....
