My name is Damyantee Devi Dabydeen (nee Singh) and I was born the great, great granddaughter of British Indentured Labourers who travelled across the seas in the late 1880’s from India to then British Guiana to seek a better life for themselves and their children.
I grew up in East Canje, Berbice and was a school teacher for twenty years before immigrating to Canada where I worked in the Retail Management and Information Technology sectors.
The first MantraI learnt, the Gayatri Mantra, was taught to me by my mother. My first Puja was addressed to Surya Dev. Since then, I have followed the eternal tradition of Sanatana Dharma with religious benevolence.
This book is a labour of Love and Bhakti for that Supreme Being who has watched over me and guided me throughout my life. It is my unflinching offering of a personal bouquet of Mantras and Bhajansand Philosophy and Teachings for the religious well-being of all.
Who am I? What am I?
Mano budhya ahankara chithaa ninaham,
Na cha srothra jihwe na cha granna nethrer
Na cha vyoma bhoomir na thejo na vayu,
chidananada roopa Shivoham, Shivoham
Neither am I mind, nor intelligence, nor ego, nor thought
Nor am I ears or the tongue or the nose or the eyes
Nor am I earth or sky or air or the light
But I am Shiva the all-pervading happinessI am Shiva! I am Shiva!
(First verse from Atmashatkamor Nirvanashatkam by Sri Adi Sankaracharya,
written around 788-820 CE)
May God be with you in all your endeavours!
