The Worship of Feminine Divinity

The Feminine Divinity has enshrined in many places on earth with Thousands of different names. In India, She takes upon the name of Kamakshi in Kanchipuram, Meenakshi in Madurai, Vishalakshi in Kasi, KanyaKumari in Cape Comorin, Bagavathy in Kodungallur and so on. This doctrine of female divinity has established Divine as firm roots among Hindus. The worship of the Divine as Mother evokes motherly traits of tenderness, generosity and love. Three most important and popular form of Divine Mother One is her powerful of all embracing grace and opulence and properity, in the form of Sri Lakshmi. Mother Lakshmi is a mother of prosperity, peace and illumination. Without Her grace one can't have inner peace or perennial joy. Second is her profound capacity for knowledge and self expression, in the form of Sri Saraswati. Goddess Saraswati manifests to create the universe through pulsation (Spanda), which animates the mind as subtle thoughts, and emerges on the physical plane as speech. All of material creation is also embodied in the subtle vibrations of this divine speech, and mantras, which encapsulate these energies, when properly pronounced, can actually recreate material reality. The third form is her splendid strength, her warrior mood and her world-shaking force, as in Kali, Durga, Saptamatrikas, Mahavidyas and Prathyankara Devi. She is the Hindu Warrior queen, the one which all the Devas and even Asuras meditate upon just to get a mere glimpse of her as a blessing before any great battle. As Sri Parvati Devi, She is the whole left side of Lord Shiva, her consort in the form of Ardhanarishvara. The meaning of her name; Sri Kamakshi Amman Mother Kamakshi has very special eyes, as portrayed in her name itself. The word 'Kama' can be refered to as Love, wanton or attractive, magnetic pull. Thus, the name means one who has a beautifully dazzling and captivating eyes. But the word 'Kaa' also means means Sri Lakshmi and 'maa' means Sri Saraswati, as in Kamatchi, the Supergoddess with Sri Parvathi, Sri Lakshmi and Sri Saraswati as her eyes. She blesses all that dedicate themselves to her.
