Rigvedokta Devi Sooktam:
(Part of Rig Veda 10.8.125- a.k.a. – Rig Vediya Devi Sooktam)
This is supposed to be the Sukta that is liked most by Devi and hence, it is chanted by thousands of wise men everyday.
This has been written by a woman sage by name Vaak, who is the daughter of Sage Ambrunar. The Woman Sage had reached the stage of identifying herself with Devi through her Saadhana – she sings this Suktam in such exalted state
