Hail Vinayaki, the female Ganesha!

Vinayaki

Vinayaki is the shakti of Lord Ganesha. She is the power through which Lord Ganesha fulfills the wishes of his devotees. Temples of Vinayaki are found across India, the most well-known being the Chausath Yogini temple in Madhya Pradesh. 

Vinayaki is also known as Stri Ganesha, Gajananā, Vighneshvari, and Ganeshani. Vinayaki is a powerful Tantric diety whose worship appears to been confined to a select sects like the Ganapatyas, who worshipped Lord Ganesha as the Supreme Reality.


May the gentle four-armed Mother Vinayaki, who is Ganesha in his feminine aspect, bless us with devotion for the lotus feet of the Lord! 

Mata Vinayaki ki Jai! Shivaputra Ganesha ki Jai! Ganpati Bappa Morya!

A temple where Draupadi Mata is worshiped as Shakti

Draupadi

Hindu Shastras recognise Draupadi as one of the five pure women who deserve our reverence. It is believed that he who chants Draupadi's name along those of Ahilya, Sita, Tara and Mandodari (Ravana's wife) attains to liberation.

There are several temples in South India where Draupadi, the wife of the five Pandava brothers is worshipped. One such temple believed to be 300 years old is worshiped by people of Serugalathur and surrounding villages in Tiruvarur district of Tamil Nadu.

Draupadi Mata is worshipped in the temple as a manifestation of Shakti - the Supreme Feminine that expresses itself through all names and forms and is beyond them.

May Mata Draupadi 
of Serugalathur bless all her devotees with health, prosperity and happiness! Jai Mata Draupadi! Jai Yogeshwar Shri Krishna ki!

Why is it okay for Krishna to steal butter and not for us?





One, because Krishna is God. Everything belongs to him. Whatever he takes, he is only taking what belongs to him in the final reckoning. Two, because the purpose is not to steal but to give pleasure to his pure devotees who take incarnate with him to participate in his leelas. Because he takes away from his devotees, he is called 'Hari' or the 'one who takes away'. In the taking away, he unburdens them of all which keeps them from enjoying the bliss that is their true nature - sadchidananda.

May Balmukunda, the stealer of clothes, butter and hearts, bless us with a glance of his merciful eyes! Keshav jai! jai! Madhav jai! jai!

Celebrating Janmashtami with the prettiest French girl in Paris!



Krishna
 A few months after the Gauda Vaishnavas built their temple (temporary) in Paris in the 1970s, Srila Prabhupada the founder Acharya of ISKCON, visited the city where he was interviewed by reporters. Krishna is known as Paris-eswara at the temple, which is called Sri Sri Radha-Pariseswara temple.

At the interview, Prabhupada had remarked, "Radharani has come to France as the most beautiful French girl. Because in the whole world the girls with the most beautiful faces are the French girls."

Today, as we celebrate Janmashtami, Parisian Vaishnavas will also be honoring the arrival of Nandlala, the divine flute player of Vrindavan, who incarnated in the world of mortals drawn by the love of his devotees. Devotees continued to steadfastly look for a permanent temple site for the deites, which happened in 2007. 

All glories to Shrimati Radharani of Paris! All glories to Lord Krishna! All glories to Vaishnavas!

The glory and power of Lord Nagaraja of Serugalathur



Swami Nagaraja

Swami Nagaraja, considered as the combined manifestation of Bramha, Vishnu and Sadashiva, is said to have blessed Kerala after Parshurama prayed to him to bless the land with fertility. His wish was granted along. Lord Nagaraja, the king of Nagaloka, also assured Parasurama that he would be present eternally at the the temple and respond to devotees who sought his assistance.

His Adisthana is in his temple in Mannarsala said to have been built and concentrated originally by Parasurama. Lord Nagaraja is present as Adi Shesha (Vishnu) and Vasuki (Rudra) in the temple.

The lord has also promised in a subsequent incarnation that he would be present at the site of the temple till the sun and the moon existed. Swami Nagaraja is known to ally the pains of devotees who seek his lotus feet.

May Lord Nagaraja of Mannarsala bless all his devotees with abundance, strength and positivity!

Jai Nagaraja! Jai Parasurama! Jai Hari-Hara! Jai Brahma deva!

Shiva, Bhakta Nandanar and Nandi



Great Shiva devotee Saint Nandanar was born in a family of drum beaters somewhere between the seventh and ninth centuries of the common era. Nandanar was not allowed to enter the temple gates because the caste-ridden society of his times practiced untouchability.

Since he was a child, he chanted Shiva's names, sang songs in his glory and constantly sought to be close to temples of the Lord. Once, he visited a temple and was overtaken by a love for the lord but was unable to have darshan of the lord. The idol of Nandi, the Lord's mount, obstructed his view.

Nandanar, the true devotee of the Lord wept. He prayed to Nandi to shift so he could have darshan of the Lord. The Lord, Mahadev, the highest of the high, ordered Nandi to shift, and he did. Nandanar had his darshan. 

Nandanar experienced rapture at the sight of the merciful Lord, the refuge of the Universe! 

May the example of Nandanar the most elevated of Shiva Bhaktas guide us to the lotus feet of the one with a body as White as Camphor!

Sant Nandanar ki jai! Shiv Shambho Mahadev ki jai!
