Navarathri Nayaki Ranjani
Sri Senkamalavalli Thayar (Mahalakshmi aka Periya Piratti) Navarathri 2010 Utsava Alangaaram @ ShanguChakra Home. The accompanying Hymn is a Carnatic Devotional Krithi on the 3 Devis of Navarathi – Lakshmi, Durga & Saraswathi glorifying their respective virtues and rendered by Mambalam Sisters.
Lakshmi (Sanskrit: लक्ष्मी,lakṣmī, Hindi pronunciation: [ˈləkʂ.miː])Tamil:லட்சுமி (letchumi)) is the Hindu goddess of wealth, prosperity (both material and spiritual), light, wisdom, fortune, fertility, generosity and courage; and the embodiment of beauty, grace and charm.
Mahalakshmi is the presiding Goddess of the Middle episode of Devi Mahatmya. Here, she is depicted as Devi in her universal form as Shakti. The manifestation of the Devi to kill Mahishasura is formed by the effulgences of all the gods. The Goddess is described as eighteen-armed, bearing a string of beads, battle axe, mace, arrow, thunderbolt, lotus, bow, water pot, cudgel, lance, sword, shield, conch, bell, wine cup, trident, noose and the discus sudarsana. She has a complexion of coral and is seated on a lotus. She is known as Ashta Dasa Bhuja Mahalakshmi.
She is seen in two forms, Bhudevi and Sridevi, both either side of Sri Venkateshwara or Vishnu. Bhudevi is the representation and totality of the material world or energy, called the aparam Prakriti, in which She is called Mother Earth. Sridevi is the spiritual world or energy, called the Param Prakriti. Most people are mistaken that they are separate beings although they are one, Lakshmi. Lakshmi is the power of Lord Vishnu.
Mahalakshmi’s presence is also found on Lord Sri Venkateswara (at Tirumala) or Vishnu’s chest, at the heart. Lakshmi is the embodiment of love, from which devotion to God or Bhakti flows from. It is through Love/Bhakti or Lakshmi that the atma or soul is able to reach God or Vishnu.
ShanguChakra’s home ashram is devoted to worship of Sriman Narayana according to Thenkalai Iyengar Sect and the teachings of Sri Manavalamamuni and Vedanta who is also known as Devaperumal or Varavaramuni. It is operated out of a ShanguChakra’s home in small basement space. All Alangarams are done by Shanguchakra. Daily rituals and kainkariyams are performed for the Lord including all auspicious events.
