Significance of the chant, Ya Devi by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, The Art of Living

Thousands of years ago, a young lady is believed to have started dancing in ecstasy after a single realization that changed her life forever: that her life originated from the infinite Consciousness that is formless and present in every form. What emerged was a spontaneous expression of this ecstasy in praise of that Consciousness which we today know as 'Ya Devi Sarva Bhutessu'.

Sage Vak, the composer, has captured every part of human existence and attributed it to the Mother Divine. This chant, which originates in the Rig Veda, has become a part of the daily Navratri prayers and sadhana. Simple and profound.

Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has shared the essence of this chant:
  • Omnipresent: Devi is present as consciousness in everyone. There is no place where the Devi is not present.
  • In all forms: Nature and its distortions are all forms of the Devi. Beauty, peace are all forms of the Devi. Even if you get angry, that too is the Devi. If you fight, that too is the Devi.
  • Ancient & new: Every moment is alive with consciousness. Our consciousness is 'Nith nutan' ancient and new at the same time. Objects are either old or new, but in nature you will find the old and the new existing together. The sun is old and new too. A river has fresh water flowing in it, every moment but yet is very old. In the same way, the human life is very ancient but it is new at the same time. Your mind is the same.

Ya Devi Sarva Bhutessu
