Chandi homa is a Vedic-tantric fire ritual invoking the GRACE of the Cosmic Feminine. The Cosmic energy is worshipped in many forms; Shiva, Vishnu, Devi, Subrahmanya, Ganesha, Surya. Among the forms the most healing and grace-showering form is the form of the Cosmic Mother; DEVI.
The Cosmic Mother is worshipped in both the fierce form (Raudra) and the cool form (Saumya). The two chief and popular hyms on Devi are the Lalita Sahasranamam and the Devi Mahatmyam. The former extols the Mother as the most serene form whereas the latter extols the Mother as The most Ferocious one.
DEVI - Embodiment of All POWER
In the Devi Mahatmyam which literally translated as the glory of the Goddess, Devi is worshipped as Chandi. She is the embodiment of all power, abundance and knowledge. This Homa will be done after the Chandi Navavarana Puja and chandi parayanam. The glory of Devi Mahatmyam is beyond verbalisation.
The Bhuvaneshwari Tantra says; "Just like the Vedas have no beginning, so is the Devi Mahatmyam considered" This is the only scripture to have been conferred the status of Vedas”
This has three parts the first is the embodiment of Rig Veda, the second is the embodiment of Yajur Veda. The third is the embodiment of Sama Veda.
This Chandi Homa in which the oblations are offered with all the mantras of the Devi Mahatmyam, is hence equivalent to offering a Homa with all the mantras of Rig Yajur and Sama Veda.
This Homa will be done after the Chandi Navavarana Puja and Chandi Parayanam.
PATH TO ENLIGHTENMENT
HDH Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam revealed in Living Enlightenment Program in 2010 - the Bhagawad Gita and the Chandi are the two scriptures - just chanting them is a path to Enlightenment.
The Meru Tantra says; Vishnu knows only three fourths of the greatness of Devi Mahatmyam. Brahma only half and Vyasa only one quarter . Others know only a fraction of the greatness of Devi Mahatmyam.
The Katyayani Tantra says "Every verse in this Devi Mahatmyam is a Mantra. " mantra means " that which takes you beyond the mind - Meaning that which Enlightens you"
The Devi Mahatmyam describes how Devi helped the Devas and destroyed the demons and won the war, how Devi's Grace made the king who lost his kingdom get back his kingdom and also makes him the undefeatable emperor of the whole world, and how Devi's grace makes a deluded depressed Vaishya achieve Enlightenment. All the devas including of Brahma Vishnu and Shiva worship Devi Chandi. It is because of Her the Mahamaya the whole world is deluded. If She is pleased She liberates people from this spell of Maya and bestows Enlightenment.
Chandi Homa is one of the most powerful Homas. A sure shot that never fails. In the Shakta tradition we relate with the Cosmos , Cosmic energy, God, Master in the form of Mother and a Child.
So whatever You are Wishing for; Be it related to this world or the world beyond; She just immediately gives .
You know why?
Because She is the Mother; The True Mother.
In the Shakta tradition we relate with the Cosmos, Cosmic energy, God, Master in the form of Mother and a Child.
BENEFITS Chandi Homa
HDH Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam is extremely meticulous when it comes to Chandi homa. Every year during the Navaratri HDH will come and offer Arghya to Devi everyday. And see to it that the Tantra is followed verbatim exactly as per Shakta Tantra's scriptural injunctions.
