The Lion is the symbol of dharma. If the devotees worship the lion, the medium of Mother, they can attain ‘rajayoga’ in their life, by status or a permanent occupation or power in government. Virtuous thinking will grow in us. Akin to the Nandi, worshiped in Shiva temple, the Lion is worshiped in Sakti temple. Worshipping the lion is equal to worship the Mother herself seated on it.
Saptha Shylaja Sri Vaaru Venkatesa Perumal
When Mother decided to descend down to earth in Kaliyuga, she had requested her brother Sri Govindan to bless the devotees to attain wealth through virtue, peace and prosperity. Sriman Narayan immediately accepted Devi’s request and through his Kaliyuga Parivara deva form of Sri Vaaru Venkatesa Perumal, he imparts his blessings to devotees. Here in this sacred land of Thiruvadisoolam, Sri Vaaru Venkatesa Perumal is surrounded by seven hills and hence this sacred Peedam is called Saptha Shylaja Madhya Peedam.
The Mother Mahasakthi is the source of everything and she emerges as viswaroopa ‘Akilandakodi Brahmanda Nayaki,’ the merciful queen of Kaliyuga, who removes our karma of all times. The Mother, here, as Mahasakthi, the devata of dharma, places her holy feet on a golden lotus. Her face is glittering as though thousands of suns put together, the crescent moon in her flowing tresses, with moon in the left eye, sun in the right eye and the fire as the third eye in the forehead. It looks as though she is calling us all, like children, with a flashing smile on her face and telling us that she is the omnipotent.
The Mother directs the world by performing her five activities of creating, blessing, protecting, concealing and destructing with her weapons, Damarugam, Soolam, Dandam, Pasam, Suvadi, Jepamalai, Kaththi, and Kabala in her ten hands. Abhaya and Varadha in her hands, the representing principles of protecting the world by Mahavishnu and Mahalakshmi, she is presented here. She manifests as the panchasakthi, the saptamathas, ashta, dasa and nava sakthis. She is also the 16 sodathi sasakti, 36 principles, 43 triangles and the bindu of Sri Chakra. She is the source of all including, Brahma. We surrender at the holy feet of Swamy for presenting us with her viswaroopa and guiding us to attain a prosperous life. As she is the 51 Agharavali, the unified form of 51 scattered organs, let us pray to Devi Karumari to get rid of our karma and be thankful for giving us her son Mathuraimuthu Swamigal for our redemption. Let us seek refuge at his feet without any delay.
