Publisher's Summary

Celebrating the ultimate triumph of good over evil, the Devi Mahatmyam by Sage Markandeya is an epic poem to the Mother of the Universe, a song of praise that echoes through the ages.

For millions worldwide, the Devi Mahatmyam is of central spiritual importance and of equal cultural significance within Indian Sanskrit literature to the Bhagavad Gita, Mahabharata, and the Ramayana. Also known as the Shri Durga Saptashati (700 verses to Goddess Durga), it forms a major part of the Markandeya Purana (dating from around 550 CE) and remains the prime focus of festivity and devotion to the Divine Mother during the nine nights of Navaratri.

Listening to this story nurtures a strong positive feeling of protection and well-being within the Heart chakra, stimulates the energy of the sternum bone that produces the antibodies that fight infection, and is of particular benefit to mankind today, as the world struggles to cope with the many physical and psychological challenges and the increasing pressures of modern life. This is a Devi Mahatmyam for our time.

Superb!

I loved every moment. Felt like I was completely transported to a different realm. It's a must have for everyone especially INDIANS, who have grown up with the Devi Mahatmayam but don't have a real clue what's it about.
Superb for its crisp delivery, easy to understand translation and very soothing tonality. Excellent. Excellent!

A superb reading of a great classic story

I have read several translations of the Devi Mahatmyam but have never read one that so beautifully captures the spirit of the original. This is a work to be read and savored in these turbulent times. My Russian wife has read an excellent translation in Russian and she and I listed to Tim Bruce's reading in two sessions on a recent long, road trip. It is spectacularly good and we will listen to it, again and again.
