This is an excerpt from a much larger work, the the Srimad Devī Bhagavatam (http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/db/index.htm), also available from sacred-texts. This self-contained text describes an incarnation of the Devi, the Goddess. She discourses on her nature, and how she wants to be worshipped, particularly with Yogic practices, meditation and rituals.
