Shri Radhe Maa - Mata Tara and her Mad son Bama Khepa

Tara Devi

The great son of Maa Tara, Bama Khepa (1837–1911), who was considered mad by many ate leftover food with dogs and jackals from the same leaf. He would also eat food that was meant to be offered to Maa Tara. The Brahmins of the temple, which was owned privately, were furious.

Bama Khepa was attacked. He was threatened and barred from entering the temple. "Maa Tara asks me to have the food in this manner," said Bama Khepa. A few days later, the owner of the temple had a dream. He saw Maa Tara, hear face filled with bruises, leaving the temple for Kailash in the Himalayas. "I have taken my mad son's blows on my face. You do not let my son eat, so I have decided that I will not eat anything offered here. How can a mother eat before feeding her child? You must let my son eat before you offer anything to me, or I shall leave this place," said Maa Tara.

Bama Khepa was made the priest of the temple and no one stopped him from eating food meant to be offered to the Goddess from that time.

May Maa Tara, the guiding star to all beings and mother of Bama Khepa, bless all her children with liberation!
