For the first time ever, AstroVed launches Ashada Navratri, a special nine-day summer celebration of Archetypal Mother Goddess Varahi, followed by the Bhagavati Seva power ritual of Archetypal Mother Goddess Durga, or Rajarajeswari.
The month of Ashada is dedicated to worshipping goddesses who are fierce, yet compassionate towards their children.
The sacred text Vaikhanasa Samhita specifically emphasizes the worship of Sapta Matrika Shakti (seven primal Mother Goddess forms), namely Brahmani, Maheshwari, Vaishnavi, Kaumari, Varahi, Indrani and Chamundi. As Durga is the combined form of the Sapta Matrikas, and is the core deity in Bhagavathi Seva, this is the best time to worship her.
Varahi, the boar-faced archetype of the Divine Mother, is hailed as Dandanatha Devi, the goddess who holds the staff of justice and is the commander of Divine Mother Lalita Sundari’s chariot, which represents the cycles of creation.
The Lalita Sahasranama, a sacred text from the Brahmanda Purana which praises Lalita, also exalts Varahi for her valor in killing Vishuka, the entity who is the personification of ignorance.
Rajarajeswari can help you manifest prosperity, fertility, purity and abundance in life.
While Varahi can bless you with spiritual and material growth by destroying evil forces that obstruct your progress, Rajarajeswari can grant all kinds of abundance in life.
The scriptures say that invoking the grace of these archetypes during Ashada is the quickest way to melt their hearts and enjoy their love and care.
Enter into an intimate communion with the Supreme Mother Goddess by connecting with Varahi during nine nights of esoteric rituals and Rajarajeswari during the supremely powerful Bhagavati Seva ritual, according to authentic Kerala traditions.
For nine consecutive nights from July 5-13, our trained priests will conduct a unique Archana (light and sound) ritual at Varahi’s powerspot on your behalf. Each ritual will include the following offerings, which are prescribed by the scriptures, in your name:
On July 16, during the Bhagavati Seva ritual, our specially trained Nambudiri priests will invoke the energy of Rajarajeswari in a large lamp that is placed on a hand-drawn diagram of a colorful lotus, or padmam, which is a symbol of the five elements of the Universe.
As the energy is raised, Rajarajeswari enters the lamp, and the energy can be felt instantly by participants near and far, through a Vedic technology called absentia.
Participate in the Bhagavathi Seva Pooja on July 16th (IST). On this day, our specially trained Nambudiri priests will invoke the energy of Rajarajeswari in a large lamp that is placed on a hand-drawn diagram of a colorful lotus, or padmam, which is a symbol of the five elements of the Universe during the Bhagavati Seva ritual at the AstroVed fire lab and remedy center in Chennai. Rajarajeswari can help you manifest prosperity, fertility, purity and abundance in life.
What Will I Receive?
You will receive Kum-Kum (Red Vermillion Powder), which will be blessed in the rituals. Keep this on your meditation altar and apply it on your forehead during meditation or at other times to expand the divine blessings into your life.
Dr. Pillai explains this:
The ritual is the carbonization of thoughts. Carbon is our information bearing atoms. The carbon residue (ash) given out as Prasad is to be placed on the third eye of the participants and carries the blessings of the archetypes invoked.
Please Note: Your Prasad will be shipped from Chennai, Tamil Nadu. Please allow 2 – 4 weeks for delivery after the entire set of rituals is performed.
