Example text

It also lies in the fact that although both the Devas and the Daityas seek Immortality only the Devas are able to achieve it. Both co-operate and work together closely for the common 46 objective until they have almost reached it. And then in the last step although they have striven for it equally, the Daityas miss the coveted prize which passes to the Devas owing to Divine intervention and help. How truly this part of the allegory depicts the race for Immortality between the followers of the Right-hand path and the Left-hand path will be seen by anyone who is familiar with the technique and conditions for treading the path which leads to Enlightenment and Liberation.

The Daityas on the other hand, once 48 they come into power, forget wherefrom they derive their power and set themselves against the Divine Will and the Divine forces working for evolution. What has been said in the previous paragraphs should not discourage the aspirant. Rather it should hearten him and give him great courage and confidence in tackling the problem of his spiritual unfoldment. It should make him redouble his efforts to remove all his weaknesses and perfect the attitude of self-surrender to God.

Before we take up the question of the allegorical significance of Durga-Saptashati it is necessary to give a sketch of the story which forms its basis. A king named Suratha is deprived of his kingdom by the machinations of his ministers and a Vaishya (merchant) named Samadhi is driven out of his home by his ungrateful wife and children. Both of them feel very unhappy and go to the hermitage of a sage named Medha to seek consolation. There they ask the sage why people in this world remain attached even to those things which are the cause of their misery.
