    Kushmanda

    I, Kushmanda is believed to be the creator of this universe. I am the devi of light and energy. I am represented with eight hands, holding Kamandal, Dhanush, Bada and Kamal in the right and Amrit Kalash, Jap Mala, Gada and Chakra in the left. I am also known as Ashtabhuja Devi because of this. I am the goddess of the cosmic egg (brahmanda). I gift lives to people and know how to lead my life too.

    Devi

    O' Mother you are the fire within me
    That burns my vices
    Yet keeps me warm against apathy.
    In your womb I learn compassion
    In an attempt to revive the exuberance
    That escaped me in this expedition.
    Trapped in my own little world
    Hurt by the wounded
    The river of Life had dried up
    Protecting this disguise.
    O' Mother drench me in your love,
    Compassion and all that is worldly
    So that I can imbibe some of those
    & radiate to those around me.
    In my journey to the ultimate
    I tried to escape you ,but now
    O' splendid creation of the creator
    How can I close my eyes to meet him
    When am in awe of his creation
    The ethereal beauty of my Mother.

    Probably, India is the only country where "Devi's idol" in a temple is much safer than "Devi" on streets.

    #Shri_Lakshmi_Charit 9

    In this last part, of ShriLakshmi Charit, I have described the Kripa (Mercy) of Devi Lakshmi, and the opulences she can provide. She being the Supreme Mother, there is absolutely nothing impossible for her. Therefore, she provides to one the blessings of wealth (Dhan), crops(Dhaanya), progeny (Santaan), Victory (Vijay), Dhairya (Patience), Boons (Vardaan), devotion to her and Narayana (Bhakti) and lastly the most important goal of human life, Liberation (Mukti).
    She is the one who guides the path of sages, she is the one who provides one the supreme knowledge to attain Moksha and service to ShriLakshmiNarayana. She destroys all inauspiciousness and gives rise to all kinds of auspiciousness for us and her devotees, Sharnagatas!
    She is the Goddess of My Heart ❤
    Hence I pray to her to provide endless mercy to that person who recites this hymn 'ShriLakshmi Charit' daily or routinely.

    The one served by all devotees is Lakshmi
    The daughter of the Ocean is the youthful Lakshmi

    Explanation:
    ShriLakshmi has an important role is Sharnagati. In fact in ShriVaishnav Tilak the two white lines represent Jeeva and Parmatma and the red line in between represents Ma Lakshmi. In the ninth para, I have described her rulership over everything, therefore she can provide the Supreme Bliss to anyone by her grace alone.
    She very mercifully provides her grace to the ones who take shelter in her. (Sharnagatas). She always present on the feet of Narayana where one jeeva can approach him, not only this she is also present in his heart forever. Therefore, she from one side she welcomes the Jeevas in serving Hari and on the other side she being the Queen of Hari's Heart, makes him forgive all sins and trespasses of Jeevas and makes them eligible to serve them. And then, she very lovingly gives them the fortune of serving both her and her Lord forever in ShriVaikuntha. This is her mercy!!!!!

    Happy Navratri Day 7!

    #Shri_Lakshmi_Charit 7

    Here, I have described about ShriLakshmi's Avatars along with Narayana. We discussed previously, that both are equal in qualities and compassion. And out of that compassion to save the Jeevas from Samsar Sagar, they both descend time after time.
    After being the wife of Narayana, Lakshmi takes up this duty along with him, being a constant companion fulfilling the Sankalpa(will) of Narayana to save all Jeevas.

    The one who is always present with Hari is Lakshmi
    Those who always descend (for us) are Hari and Lakshmi
    The one who destroys Adharma is Goddess Lakshmi
    The Nurturer of Devotees is Devi Lakshmi
    The chaste wife Tulsi is ShriLakshmi
    The daughter of Bhrigu, hence called ShriBhargavi is Lakshmi
    The daughter of the Ocean is the Youthful Lakshmi
    Victory Victory & Victory be to Shridevi Lakshmi |8|

    The one worshipped by Prahlad are Narsimha and Lakshmi
    The beloved of Upendra (ShriVaman) is Padma Lakshmi
    The daughter of Janak, and the Consort of Raam is Lakshmi
    The purest and the most pious Seetha is Lakshmi
    The better half of the foremost in dynasty of Yadu (ShriKrishn) is Lakshmi
    Satyabhama, Rukmini and Nappinai is Lakshmi
    The daughter of the Ocean is the Youthful Lakshmi
    Victory Victory & Victory be to Shridevi Lakshmi |9|
    ©shrihari_nandini

    Explanation:
    Lakshmi is always present with Hari and both out of their compassion to save us, destroy Adharma and nurture devotees descend in various forms.
    Tulsi Devi, the pious chaste wife is said to be a form of ShriLakshmi only, she was married to ShriVishnu.
    Then, she became the daughter of Bhrigu and Khyati and married ShriVishnu.
    When Bhagwan came as ShriNarsimha, she came as Chenchu Lakshmi. When Bhagwan became Vaaman, she was called Padma.
    When he was the upholder of Dharma, ShriRaam, she was the purest and the most pious Devi Seetha.
    When he came as the gem of Yadukul, (dynasty of King Yadu) and the child of Braj Bhumi, she descended as Rukmini Ma. Nila Devi became Ma Nappinai or Ma Nagnjeeti and Bhudevi became Ma Satyabhama. Here, Bhudevi and Niladevi are seen as forms of Lakshmi as we discussed previously (Antaryamitva and qualities).

    The one who is eternal like Govinda is ShriLakshmi
    The one worshipped by Vedas and Puranas is ShriLakshmi
    The one who is solely and completely dedicated to her husband (is a chaste wife) is ShriLakshmi
    The one who is solely dedicated to ShriKrishna is Lakshmi
    The one worshipped by Krishna's love is ShriLakshmi
    The Primordial Couple (Divya Dampatis) are ShriVishnuLakshmi
    The daughter of the Ocean is the youthful Lakshmi
    Victory Victory & Victory be to Shridevi Lakshmi
    ©shrihari_nandini

    Explanation:
    As the Primordial Couple ShriLakshmiNarayana got married, I have further described, the qualities of ShriLakshmi with respect to ShriVishnu being her husband. Both have an equal status, being eternal and all pervading.
    Both are the object of worship by the Vedas, Puranas, and Itihaas too.

    Vishnu Puran Book 1 Chapter 8 Shloka 17
    ShriParashar said: Oh Best Among Twice Born Ones! The one who never leaves the side of Vishnu, the Mother of the World, ShriLakshmi is eternal and all pervading just like him.

    Further in Shloka 34
    To say in brief, in Devatas, Manushyas and all entities, the Masculine Form is that of Vishnu and the Feminine is that of Lakshmi (Antaryamitva), there is nothing that exists besides these too.

    ShriVishnu is solely dedicated to ShriLakshmi and ShriLakshmi is solely dedicated to ShriVishnu. Both are revered as Divya Dampatis, the Primordial Couple!

    The one worshipped by Shiva, Brahma etc is Lakshmi
    The friend of Uma (Parvati Mata) and Sharda (Saraswati Mata) is ShriLakshmi
    One who is always according to Hari's wish is Lakshmi
    One who is always the nurturer of all devotees is ShriLakshmi
    The one who is very gracefully situated on the chest of ShriVishnu is Lakshmi
    The one who is situated in her ShriVatsa abode is Lakshmi
    The daughter of the Ocean is the youthful Lakshmi
    Victory Victory & Victory be to Shridevi Lakshmi
    ©shrihari_nandini

    Explanation:
    Here the position of Lakshmi is explained being VishnuPatni- the wife of ShriVishnu and her glories apart from that as well.
    Being the empress, and the origin of all Goddesses, ShriLakshmi is worshipped by Shiv Ji, Brahma Dev etc. They all rever her! She is the friend of Parvati and Saraswati Devis who always worship her and adore her, as she is their origin. She is the great MahaLakshmi!
    She always dons a form alike that of Bhagwaan Narayana, as per his desire and mindset. This is also described in greater detail in the Book 1 Chapter 8 and 9 of ShriVishnu Puran (it's so sweet to read ��)
    When Bhagwan dons a human form, she too becomes a human wife according to him. Even in Matsya, Kurma avatars she accompanied him, always in different forms.
    Bhagwaan and Devi are never separate. They are like Sun and Sunlight, Flower and Fragrance.
    She is always presiding on the chest of ShriVishnu. The ShriVatsa mark on his chest marks her presence on it eternally and forever...��

    The one who got enchanted by the form of ShriHari is ShriLakshmi
    There was no one like Vishnu, There was no one like Lakshmi
    The wife of Vishnu, beloved of Hari, is Lakshmi
    The daughter of the Ocean is the youthful Lakshmi
    Victory Victory & Victory be to Shridevi Lakshmi
    ©shrihari_nandini

    Explanation:

    After knowing about her beauty and chief characteristics, everyone wished to have her- The Matchless Goddess. All the apsaras (celestial nymphs) that arose from the Ocean were not even a spark of Lakshmi's beauty.
    But to be Lakshmi Pati- The Husband of Lakshmi, only a person who is equal to her was eligible. Only Parmatma ShrimanNarayana could be her bridegroom. In ShrimadBhagwatam, Gopikas describe him as Shriyah Ekant Vallabham- The Sole Husband of ShriLakshmi.
    In fact Lakshmi is the defining feature of Parmatma. Vedas call the one Parmatma, who is the 'Husband of Lakshmi' and none else.
    When her marriage was being conducted, Lakshmi looked around for her suitable bridegroom (of course she knew, it was just a leela). Everyone whether Asuras or Devatas had one or the other taints, none was completely pure.
    Then Lakshmi's eyes fell on Vishnu, who was the blemishless Parmatma, the Antaryami of All, the Abode of Shudh Satva, whom sins never touch. ShriVishnu who is always ShriyahPati got enchanted by the beauty of her beloved wife. And Lakshmi too got enchanted by the matchless form of ShriHari.
    Hence, she garlanded Vishnu as her Husband, and this was their another leela of being united.
    In Vishnu Puran, Rishi Matreya asks Rishi Parashar, that if Lakshmi arose from Ocean and has a birth then how come, she be eternal like Vishnu?
    To which Rishi Parashar replies, that Lakshmi is Vishnu's eternal companion. And both of them are always engaged in their infinite pastimes and keep enjoying their union in each leela.
    The Samudra Manthan was another of their leela to get united and enjoy their love pastimes.
    Lakshmi is all pervading alike Vishnu, she always resides on his chest as the Shrivatsa Mark. When he becomes Raam, She becomes Seetha, when he is Krishna, she becomes Rukmini. They are never separate.

    One whose face glows like a hundred moons is Lakshmi
    The one adorned with numerous jewels is Lakshmi
    One who looks graceful is white dresses (She wears a white Saree) is Lakshmi
    The daughter of the Ocean is the youthful Lakshmi
    Victory Victory & Victory be to Shridevi Lakshmi

    Note: We generally know Devi Lakshmi as wearing a red or bridal Saree but many great poets and scriptures have described her as one adorned in a white Saree.

    Oh My Godha
    By Bhavya Gogia

    Oh my little Godhe
    Come, crawl to my lap,
    Let me sanctify myself with
    The dust of your tiny lotus feet
    Come my sweet love, take a nap
    Your large eyes, like spears for Hari
    Are lotuses to the lake of my Heart
    Are bringing me immense joy
    Along with your mere sweet sight
    Oh Godhe, aren't you personified piece of art?
    Your little lips curl into a smile,
    Oh Vallabhaa of RangNayak,
    What magic you hold in them?
    Oh my sweet child, please rest in my vicinity,
    Beside you Ma, who's my Sahayak?
    Come sit in my lap Kodai
    Let's defeat the beauty of a pearl and it's shell
    Found in the deepest Oceans
    Of exquisite perfect charm
    Let's show your mercy which is matchless
    Oh Godha of Greenish Complexion,
    Oh Swayam Bhumi, the forbearer
    I wish, I pray to every divinity
    May your Feet live long in my Heart,
    Without a worry and till forever

    Happiest Birthday to our dearmost ShriGodha Maa ������������������������❤❤❤❤
    For her story, you can refer to my post in ShriRaasRaajeshwar 2. #ShriGodha_story

    Here, in this poem, I ask my little Godha to come crawl in my lap and make me feel blissful and alive. �� Oh the Most Compassionate Mother, come to me and stay with me! Her face is purely Anandmayi (Blissful), and it gives me immense joy. I get joyful watching her little hands and feet ready to embrace me and the little smile curled on her lotus like Face. Her complexion is Greenish ����❤
    I wish ShriGodha comes to me and sits on my lap soon and embrace me. So, that the world sees her Infinite Compassion, that she the loving mother, embraces even her most sinning children like me! When she, the shining green pearl will sit on my lap, we'll look together as the rusty oyester holding an exquisite pearl! While I am a sinner faded as an oyester, she would be my only source of beauty (bliss) when I hold her. Just compare a pearl sitting in a rusty oyester and then me holding ShriGodha in my lap ���� And bow down to her compassion and forbearance!
    Therefore I wish, the Lotus feet of the compassionate Mother live forever in My Heart without any obstacles! ❤

    Happiest Birthday to the Queen of ShriRangNayak (ShriVishnu) ����������������❤��������

    Prayer to BhuDevi
    By Bhavya Gogia

    Oh Bhumi, with a slender waist
    Oh beloved of Vishnu Deva
    Who resides on crest of Sankarshan*
    And receives the Nitya Seva
    Oh one who carries a bow
    And is shaped like one,
    Who is the personification of forbearance
    And is effulgent more than the Sun.
    I bow to you my Mata
    Please glance at me once
    That's the only thing I wish
    I won't ask anything thence!
    Your eyes are like a lake
    Of immense unparalleled mercy,
    Where I find my peace Oh Ma,
    And my rest Oh Devi.
    How shall I find a place
    Which is a reservoir of solitude
    Alike you, Oh KamaDhenu to needy**,
    Who is the source of beatitude!
    I plead Oh Medini, the consort of Hari
    That you help mediate my case
    Along with Mayya Lakshmi
    So, that I escape the chase,
    Of time and the sins,
    I accumulated since immemorial
    And help me reach the peace,
    Which awaits me, and is my yearn cordial.
    ©shrihari_nandini

    *Sankarshan- A Vyuha Avatar of ShriVishnu who supports the entire creation(Bhudevi) on his hoods. ��
    **Kamadhenu to needy- The wish yielding cow, Bhumi Mayya provides us all with all food and shelter we need��

    Bhu Suktam Shlokam 12-13.
    vishNu patnIm mahIm devIm mAdhavIm mAdhavapriyAm |
    lakshmI priyasakhIm devIm namAmyacyuta-vallabhAm l 12
    Meaning:
    We salute BhUmi PirATTi (mahIm devIm), the consort of VishNu; we salute
    that mAdhavI, who is dear to Maadhavan (Her Lord ) and who is the dearest
    friend of LakshmI devi. Our salutations are to BhUmi PirATTi, who has
    vAllabhyam (vaSIkaraNam) over Her Lord, Achyutan.

    om dhanurdharAyai vidmahe sarvasiddhyai ca dhImahi |
    tanno dharA pracodayAt || 13 ||
    Meaning:
    We worship Her by knowing Her as One who (wields the bow and looks also like
    a bow, lean in the middle) is adorning the bow. For that purpose we meditate
    upon the One who blesses us with all success (sarva siddhi). May that dharaNi
    dharA/BhUmi devI, prompt us for that meditation! (We worship Her for the
    sake of worship - sAttvIka tyAga)

    SOURCE: sadagopan.org (Bhu Suktam)
    My poem is inspired by the same. All Glories and Gratitude to ShriHari and ShriVaishnav Jans! ��❤��

    Bhumi Ma, the consort of Narayana, is the personification of his forbearance his forgiveness, and she along with Mayya Lakshmi is our ideal mediator who pleads Bhagwaan to forgive our sins and take us out of Samsaar Sagar. So, let's take the shelter of Bhumi Piratti's (Ma) Lotus feet and ask her to take our case to ShrimanNarayana. ��
    Even this is very sweet! ��❤
    Bhagwaan stands in the middle, while Lakshmi Ma stands on the left and Bhumi Ma stands on right (some say opposite though am saying according to the picture ��). So, for us what they do? Lakshmi Ma tells Bhagwaan to forgive our sins, which are so big that Bhagwaan turns his face, and on turning right what he finds? Bhumi Ma is saying the same. When Hari still doesn't listen, our mothers get angry from him, actually sad, which Hari can't bear to see hence he readily forgives us and gives us his Precious Devotion! Narayana Narayana! ShriBhu Sametha My Narayana! ��������
    Since, Bhu Devi is his forgiveness and Shri Devi is his mercy towards us we should see our Mothers non different from our Father. ��
    Sashtras too say that we shouldn't approach Bhagwaan directly, hence we should approach through the best mediator ShriMahaLakshmi, BhuDevi and Neela Devi too. Neela Devi is also said to be his affection personified but she is mostly seen as non different than Bhumi Devi or ShriMahaLakshmi.

    Oh Sweetest Avani
    The Beloved of Narayana
    Accept my obeisances
    Oh Lovely Anantha Shaayina
    You are the Pretty Medini
    Shining on the chest of Lord
    His Forgiveness Personified,
    You are Mercy's Abode!
    You reside in my Heart, Oh Devi
    Along with Kamlaasini
    You are the beautiful companion
    Of the Eloquent Shri!
    You out of compassion
    Became the daughter of SatraJeet(as SathyaBhama)
    And conquered the Heart of
    Your beloved AnanthJeet(ShriKrishn)
    You shine with the brilliance of
    A million Sun-like stars
    And are like the Sister of Moon(ShriLakshmi)
    Sporting with your Shyaam!
    I prostrate at your feet
    Oh Daughter of Periyazhwar(as ShriGodha Devi)
    Grant me Devotion to yourself
    Sempiternally, Oh Mother!
    ©shrihari_nandini

    Avani, Medini- Names of Ma ShriBhudevi
    Anantha Shaayina- One who rests on Anantha SheshNaag
    Kamlaasini, Shri- Ma ShriLakshmi

    Bhumi Devi is another form of Ma ShriMahaLakshmi, and is in the form of entire creation of Lord. She is the personification of Bhagwan's forgiveness ☺ while ShriDevi and NeelaDevi represent Mercy and Affection of Swamy ❤
    She came with ShriKrishn as Ma SathyaBhama, the daughter of SatraJeet, also in Kaliyuga She incarnated as Ma Godha, the daughter of Periyazhwar who attained the Lord through her Utmost Devotion. She showed us the path to Liberation and Kainkaryam- Eternal Service to ShrimanNarayana☺❤��

    @writersnetwork @readwriteunite @mirakee @mirakeeworld @willow923
    "Beauty provokes harassment", the law says;
    but it looks through men's eyes when deciding what provokes it,
    then let it be a small 5 year old or even few months old.
    No one causes rape, but rapists!!
    A tale of sisterhood, a tale of suffering, a tale of brutal truth, beautifully framed by Priyanka Banerjee,
    not only does it showcase that, the universe of women who have been raped looks identical to the universe of women not been raped,
    but also it states that they could be mothers, teens or even sex workers.
    They could live in mansions or in flophouses.
    They could be homeless or may be suffering from schizophrenia.
    They could be black or white or Asian. Diffrent religions, diffrent age groups.
    They could be passed out drunk or completely sober.
    And they could react to the crime in all kinds of ways.
    They could be hysterical or withdrawn.. And their rapists need not necessarily be some unknown strangers, but devils living within their own shelters!
    I am not sure if we are numbed to the reality of rape that's just been shown in this beautiful heartwarming yet devastating piece.
    But, in the words of Luis Buñuel, from "My Last Sigh",
    "Sometimes, watching a rape movie is a bit like being raped."
    It's true! It definately feels so.
    This part the society needs to understand that these equations can implode, constricting our whole life, until one day we are sitting in a locked steel box breathing through an airhole with a straw and wondering,
    'Now? Now am I safe?
