Dialogue

Indrani:
but mother Mahalakshmi, in the fulfilment of a
mother's duty. What is the role of 'bhakti', devotion ?

Mahalaxmi:
Oh! dear. It is 'bhaktimay jeevan', life filledwith devotion. For peace
of mind, and for progress to take place in the spiritual aspects of life, every
woman should lead a life that is 'Bhakti Pravahi', flowing with devotion.

Ulka and Indrani:
'Bhakti Pravahi' , what does that mean?

Mahalaxmi:

Song 9 :

Bhaktimay ĖJeven Pravah
The devotion filled journey of life

My first verse dear
Is about the loving childhood
From playing-house to first lisping
I remember my loving God good. ||1||

My second verse dear
Is about 'Love' in youthful emotion,
While I enjoy marital bliss
I remember my loving God with devotion ||2||

My third verse dear
Is about the inkling of motherhood
My life-mission as a women is fulfilled
I remember my loving God good. ||3||

My fourth verse dear
Is about middle-age wisdom
Amidst 'Karma' 1 , 'Dharma'2 and 'Sanskar' 3
I remember my loving God with devotion. ||4||

My parting verse dear
Is about the mystery beyond life's ocean,
I shall prevail on myself like the 'LOTUS'
And always remember my loving God with devotion ||5||

Note:
1. Karma : Deeds
2. Dharma : Duty
