About Pratyangira Devi

An all-powerful Goddess, Sri Maha Pratyangira Devi, is present everywhere and invisibly protects all her devotees and all those who seek solace in her. Always present by the side of all those who repose faith in her, she exists in each and every being in all aspects of her living existence

Her exact origin has been a subject of debate over the years. According to the revered Puranas, there are different theories regarding her exact origin. One theory holds that the Mother Goddess emerged from the third eye of Sarabheswarar (manifestation of Lord Shiva) with 1,008 lion faces, 2,016 hands and a blood-stained tongue protruding out.

As Pratyangira energy manifests, it's often a very swift and sometimes ferocious current. Many of the Saints who've seen its energetic expression have described it as half lion and half human. The lion head is that of a male and the body is that of a female, representing the union of Shiva and Shakti. In her full form, she is humongous, with 1008 heads (symbolically representing the 1008-petalled Sahasrara Chakra, the universal chakra of the cosmic energy) and 2016 hands, riding majestically on a chariot pulled by 4 lions (representing the 4 Vedas), carrying many swords for removing obstacles.

Prathyangara Devi Homam is performed for the destruction of any negative forces like Disease, Misfortune, Obstacles, Rivalry and regaining of Power.

People worship the Goddess Prathyangara Devi for curing all their illnesses, for preventing major accidents and any other kind of health issues caused by poisoning. It is also believed worshipping this Goddess helps in the removal of all mental blocks.

The Mother Goddess is also called 'Artharvana Bhadra Kali', because she is the guardian of our Atharvana Vedam that holds the secret of Mantras Tantras Yantras from good to evil. Her Character is straight forward and wherein mistakes are committed by anyone, she is quick to punish them. But she is also quick to forgive one who seeks solace in her and remains a true devotee.

Thus the Mother Goddess, who is Maha Shakthi herself, is the most wonderful mother you can have.
