INDIA AND HINDUISM, THE SPIRITUAL TRADITION
One needs many tools in order to be successful in one’s spiritual work. Many obstacles lie along the way, which require different methods to overcome. These divine weapons help us break through them. The divine ornaments give beauty to charm difficulties away. Such tools proved helpful, if not crucial through time. Rather than struggling with problems, I call upon the weapons of the Goddess to deal with them.

I later realized that Durga was the form of the Goddess connected with Bharat Mata or Mother India, who took the form of Durga riding her lion. Later I came to understand that her blessing was a presage of my later journalistic work in the country, which I had no idea about at the time. The weapons and ornaments were mantric tools to do this work.

It was if I had become one of the Divine Mother’s warriors. These I first experienced in the form of the Vedic Maruts or Wind Gods, the sons of Rudra-Shiva and the companions of Indra. Later I would realize their connection with the deity Hanuman who is also the son of the Wind God and the head of the divine army. I joined the Mother Durga’s army, though not knowingly at first.
