Kamakshi Ashtotharam

Kamakshi Ashtotharam

Translated by 
P.R.Ramachander

  (Kamakshi is a form of Tripura Sundari , the presiding deity of Sri Chakra. The main abode of Goddess Kamakshi is  the  temple dedicated to her at Kanchipuram.Her idol has been carved out of Salagrama stone  and  she is supposed to have been consecrated there  by sage Durvasa himself . Kamakshi is seen to be sitting in the lotus pose  holding  a sugarcane bow, bunch of flower arrows, rope and the goad in her four hands..A parrot also is seen perched on the flower arrows that   she is holding .She also has moon’s crescent decorating her forehead. It is believed that Goddess Parvathi  had to absorb all the Shakthi forms in to herself so that she could save Kama(the god of love) who was burnt to ashes  by Lord Shiva. Another legend says that it was here that Goddess Parvathi worshipped a sand made Shiva Linga and was able to marry Lord Shiva.  In the original(old Kamakshi temple)  , next to Kumara Kottam,  Saint Adhi Sankara had established a Sri Chakra. Devotees believe that  King Dasaratha   performed the Puthra Kameshti yaga for getting sons at this temple. In Lalitha Trishathi BHashyam the great saint had termed this as the Kama Koti peeta,By doing this the  Acharya  changed the fierce form of a Goddess   in to a Sowmya form,  The modern temple which was built near this temple also has a Sri Chakra  consecrated there. Worshipping her the devotee  gets peace  and all that he wants. It is surprising to know that no other temple of Kanchi, which is a great temple city  has any other Parvathi temple.  )
