Durga is one of the major forms of Devi, or Goddess, and the name means one who is inaccessible or difficult to approach. She is typically portrayed riding a lion, or sometimes tiger, holding an array of weapons.

While the lyrics to this chant to Durga stay the same throughout, it has 3 melodic sections in the format A-B-A-C (meaning the first section repeats between the second and third sections). The track begins with an esraj intro by Monnie Ramsell.

Features: Yvette Om - call and response vocals; Monnie Ramsell - esraj; Daniel Paul - tabla; Steve Oda - sarod; Ben Leinbach - bass guitar, drums and hand percussion; Natesh - call and response vocals, guitars, drums and hand percussion.
