Monday Mantra is to Durga. Later this week, Navratri, the nine day festival of Durga, begins. During this festival, Durga is worshipped in many of her different guises and it's a chance to really get to know her.

The mantra I've chosen for today is Durga's Gayatri mantra - sort of like her signature mantra. It can be used to petition her for help, in this case, her help in overcoming all difficulties.
