... A nice exposition of devotional philosophy in the shakti tradition is found in the Devi Mahatmayam, popularly reversed as the Durga Saptashati. Shakti as a supreme Mother has found an elaborate position in this highly occult scripture of the Shaktas. Devi is adored with the name and for of Mahakali, Mahalakshmi and Mahasaraswati, This sacred scripture is a section of the Markandeya Purana. It is multi dimentional in spirit, devotional in Stuti and philosophic in approach. It throws sufficient light on Jnana Karma Bhakti. Through this triadic approach, a Sadhaka enters in the Divine laboratory, putting on the Kavacham apron of various moods of the Divine Mother, around the spiritual atmosphere during the Navaratra Puja, explains Dr. C L Raina in his detailed introduction of this book. Devi is Infinite and Finite. The divine mother is the sound, the VAK, ligh and consciousness, yet that appears to be finite, in the fragments itself.
