Worshiping Ma Kushmanda on fourth day of Navratri

The Shakti aspect that is worshiped on the fourth day of Navratri is Ma Kushmanda.

ॐ देवी कूष्माण्डायै नमः॥

Ma Kushmanda

Ma Kushmanda is that form (swaroop) of Ma Durga who created the whole universe with her divine smile, when nothing existed and there was eternal darkness.  The universe created was in a shape of a egg, hence the name Kushmanda. The supreme goddess of power or Adi-Parashakti, appeared in the form of Siddhidatri from the left side of lord Shiva’s body. After taking the form of Siddhidatri, Goddess Parvati started to live inside the core of the sun and, hence, came to be known as Kushmanda Devi. This implies that Kushmanda Devi controls the entire solar system, while residing in the core of the sun.The word Kushmanda is made of three words that are “Ku + Ushma + Amnda= Kushmanda”. Here “Ku” is “Little”, “Ushma” is “Warmth or Energy” & “Anda” is “Egg” , means the one who create the universe as “Little Cosmic Egg” with the energy of Her divine smile. In Sanskrit word “Kushmand” means white pumpkin. Sacrifice of white pumpkin is dear to Ma Kushmanda in the ritualistic sacrifice. Ma Kushmanda is also known as “Ashtabhuja”as she is having eights arms.  In her seven hands she holds Kamandalu, Bow, Arrow, Lotus, a Jar of Nectar, Discus, and Mace. In her eighth hand she holds a rosary capable of giving eight Siddhis (eight types of wisdom or powers) and nine Niddhis. (nine types of wealth). The eight siddhis are Animan, Mahiman, Laghiman, Gariman, Praapti, Prakaamya, Ishitva and Vashitva. The nine niddhis are Mahapadma, Padma, Shakh, Makara, Kachchhapa, Mukunda, Kunda, Nila and Kharva. She is also known as Adi Swaroop as she created the whole universe. Her vehicle is a lion. We have an ancient temple of Ashtabhuji Devi in Khajuraho and that temple has enormously positive vibrations.

The governing planet of Ma Kushmanda is Sun. Her being is illuminated like a golden glowing sun. She is the source of light in every being in this universe.

Ma Kushmanda is Anahata Shakti. Anahata (Heart) Chakra is also the abode of Air Element. So on the fourth day of Navratri, Tattva Shakti Sadhak and Sadhika should first make Sankalpam and Guru Vandana and proceed to Vayu Tattva Sadhana. A Sadhak should continuously meditate on the form of Ma Kushmanda while doing this Sadhana (during Navaratri). It is very important to do the Sadhana with pure and focused mind. She opens the doorways to higher spiritual experiences to those who devote their pure hearts to her. The Sadhana removes all illness and sadness from the life of a Sadhak. Ma Kushmanda dispels darkness and ignorance.  I have many personal experiences of people coming out of their tamasic life to become sattvic by the grace of Kushmanda devi, especially this Khajuraho temple in particular. Ma Shakti Kushmanda destroys ego and removes doubts, depression and sorrow. She ensures sadhakas/devotees who show their complete faith in Her tread smoothly  towards higher spiritual realms. The Sadhana gives subtle but profound spiritual experiences to the Sadhak. A Sadhak gains more clarity of his spiritual path and dwells deep in his/her Sadhana. Ma Kushmanda gives fruits both of worldly and supernatural realms.

या देवी सर्वभू‍तेषु माँ कूष्माण्डा रूपेण संस्थिता। नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमो नमः॥

I bow down at the lotus feet of my Guru and Goddess and pray. “May you receive all the divine grace from Goddess in this New Year.”

Blessings,

Let’s talk health

Ma ShaktiA healthy body is the birthright of every human being. Everyone wants a healthy and vibrant body but surprisingly enough most of people do not actually do much regarding their physical health or worse they are involved in exactly opposite life style. A life style that takes them miles away from their dream of a healthy body. Bringing a little awareness to the subtle signals given by body brings a lot of understanding of the body to us. An understanding that body is a divine vehicle and a gross form of consciousness, helps a person to move from an unhealthy lifestyle to a healthy one. Being Conscious is not a thought or a mindset, it is a feeling, a feeling of being alive and being connected to the life as whole. Consciousness of the body arises with an understanding and knowledge of the physical body.

Our physical body also referred to as Annamaya Kosha is formed by a interplay of five divine elements: The Panchtattvas. And further  Tattva Shakti Vigyaan practitioners’ experiential understanding reaffirms that the five elements are not only in the form of gross matter present in our Annamaya Kosha (Physical body) but are present in subtle forms in our other four Koshas of Panch Kosha also. The Five elements are conscious entities affecting us on all levels. On mental, physical and energy level their imbalance can cause various implications.

Physical body is very much affected by the imbalance of the tattvas and our life style also pollutes them. Every element affects our physical body in various ways. An increase or decrease in elements cause various diseases but we cannot always single out an element as a cause for any disease. An Ayurvedacharya before giving any medication tries to understand the Dosha of the patient. There are predominantly three Dosha’s – Vata, Pitta and Kapha. I say predominantly as there are sub-doshas also. Like for Vata Dosha sub dosha’s are Prana Vata, Udaan Vata, Vyaan Vata, Samaan Vata, and Apaan Vata. For Pitta Dosha sub-doshas are Pachak Pitta, Ranjak Pitta, Sadhak Pitta, Alochak Pitta and Bhrajaka Pitta. For Kapha Dosha sub-doshas are Avlambak Kapha, Kledak Kapha, Bohaka Kapha, Tarpaka Kapha and Shleshak Kapha. Knowing the dosha is an imperative part of Indian healing system. Tattva Shakti Therapy is a healing system that gives a clear and direct understanding of your mind-body complex by apprehending your Dosha.

The Tridoshas are further made from the combination of two elements. Like Vata Dosha is combination of Vayu Tattva (Air) and Akasha Tattva(Space). Pitta Dosha is combination of Agni Tattva (Fire) and Jal Tattva (Water) and Kapha Dosha is combination of Jal Tattva (Water) and Prithvi Tattva (Earth). This makes it very clear that imbalance in elements cause imbalance in Doshas’ too. And imbalance of Doshas is the root of all diseases in a human(physical and mental). The practices in Tattva Shakti Therapy work on balancing the tattvas and thereby the doshas.

The practices are completely based on ancient time tested methods of Indian Holistic healing system through which you too can claim your birthright to perfect physical and mental health. With Ma Shakti Devpriya we will keep discussing various aspects of Tattva Shakti Therapy and even learn some wonderful and easy ways for healthy mind and body.
