Chamunda Maa means victorious over the demons Chand (denoting the seemingly attractive vices of lust, greed & attachment) & Mund (denoting the ferocious looking vices of anger & ego)… And is shown:
- As old-aged… Hence, when we consider ourselves a soul (which is ageless), we can win over all the vices (i.e remain in the constant experience of peace, love & joy)!
- With an owl… Which remains awake in the night… Hence, denoting waking up slightly early to practice powerful early morning meditation, which makes it very easy to win over vices!
- With a damru (drum)… Hence, remaining alert & active (i.e., keeping full attention of our thoughts), to ensure no waste of negative thought starts growing in our mind!
- Creating fear… Hence, let’s become so pure & divine, that negativity fears coming in front of us!
Most other features of Chamunda Maa (e.x., fierce nature, skull-necklace, corpse at feet, etc) resemble Maa Kali
Conclusion (Spiritual Significance of Chamunda Maa)
Hence today, let’s consider ourselves a soul & remember the Supreme… This fills us with the divine power of purity, peace & joy… And like darkness cannot exist where there’s light, vices & sorrow cannot exist in the light of our original virtues… Hence, making us victorious over vices in an extremely easy manner, thus helping bring the divine land Satyuga once again!
