Man witnesses continual assaults on all we hold sacred, in the world around us today.

When all seems futile, how do we approach formidable life experiences from a place of

compassion and love for both self and other? To whom do we turn for guidance? In “Debi Bodhon”, the pain and sufferings awakens the fiercely compassionate, divine feminine Devi Mahatmya, Maa Durga – the Goddess of Impenetrable Compassion symbolizing the unassailable essence of our own inherent nature, ultimately frees us from evil and returns us to the wisdom of love, laughter, peace, harmony and unity.
