This is the 8th chapter in Devi Mahatmyam,where the slaying of the evil Asura Raktabeej by Devi is described. Due to the 15 mins. limit set by Youtube, only shlokas #1-43 have been chanted here. The rest of the shlokas#43-63 is made available in the next upload# DM22. The chanting is deliberately slow with exaggerated “deerghams” or elongated vowels. Please visit our website for more details.
