Sri Sita devi Astotharam




Sri Sita devi  Astotharam

Translated by
P.R.Ramachander

(Goddess  Sita  was found by king Janaka  while he was ploughing   the field to conduct a fire Sacrifice . Hence she  is considered as the daughter of Goddess  earth. She married Rama   and then went to forest  along with Rama  .There she was abducted  by Ravana. Lord Rama located her  with help of Hanuman, killed  Ravana   and then  Rama was crowned as  the king  Of Ayodhya   and Sita his queen.  She is considered  as the  female deity   controlling agricultural fertility by some devotees. There are individual  temples for located in  Nepal, Haryana , Bihar , Wyanad district of  Kerala as well as in Sri Lanka .Ofcourse she is there as   the goddess wife of Rama in all his temples, In Janaki Mandir in Nepal  , they believe that  her marriage was celebrated there and his marriage is enacted there every year.

Radha Krishna Ashtothara

Radha  Krishna Ashtothara

Translated by
P.R.Ramachander

(Goddess Radha   is mentioned in many places in the Vedas  .In most of the north Indian schools of Vaishnavism , it is she who  controls  even  lord  Krishna herself. Bhagwatha    describes  a  Radha    who was a  daughter  of  Another Gopa chieftain called Vrishabanu. Though she was  Lord Krishna’s best friend while he was in Brindavan, when he left   to Mathura and to Brindavan  he did not  take her with him. Her worship of Lord Krishna can be described as Prema Bhakthi- The devotion through love  .The devotion to her got a great fillip  due to  the  great popular work of devotion   called Geetha Govindam by  poet Jayadeva. To  those who believe in Radha   , Lord Krishna cannot exist   without Radha and so the worship of Radha Krishna became very popular . It is told  about Goddess Radha that 

“Devi Krishna mayi proktha,
Radhika Para Devatha ,
Sarva Lakshmi maya sarva ,
Kanthi sammohini para”

Meaning

“That Radha    who is the divine Godess,
Is pervaded  all over by Lord Krishna,
She also is completely Lakshmi the  goddess of wealth,
And she attracts   all  beings    by her  luster”

She is also considered by these devotees as   more important than the eight queens of Krishna .

But  strangely in south India all    ancient temples  do not consecrate  Radha as the  consort of Vishnu in any temple . In Tamil Nadu it is Aandal,  called also as Nappinnai  or Godha  , who  is the epitome of Prema  Bhakthi  and  she is consecrated   in very many temples in Tamil Nadu. In  the  south Indian Bhajana Sampradhaya  which possibly came from the Bhakthi traditions of north , Goddess Radha   is given lot of emphasis and a Radha Krishna  worship has taken root in the south also.  Let us with love   worship Radha Krishna , the epitome  of love .)

Meenakshi ashtotharam

Meenakshi ashtotharam

Translated by
P.R.Ramachander

(Goddess Meenakshi(One with fish like eyes-fish is the emblem of Pandya kingdom)  is a presiding deity  of the   great Madurai  Meenakshi  temple. The city of Madurai was found  by  Kulasekara  Pandyan .His son and the king   was Malaya Dwaja Pandian.His queen was  Kanchanamala. They did not have any children and conducted several Yagas for getting one.Once from the sacrificial fire a three  tyear girl with three  breasts came out and sat on the lap  of Kanchana Malai ,Malayadwaja  was sad that he did not get a son.Then a divine voice told him to name her as THatathakai and bring her up just like a son and it also told him that her third breast would disappear   once she  comes across the Man whom she   would marry.The king obeyed the divine command  and taught THatathakai  the art of war and ruling the country. Later  she became the queen of Madurai .She started fighting war and conquering  other lands,Once she reached Kailasa abd Lord Shiva   came before her as  Lord Sundareswara and her third breast disappeared . She then fell in love with lord Shiva and got married to him.
    In the Madurai temple the Goddess Meenakshi  holds the pride of place .She has a crescent on her hair . holds a parrot  in her left hand  and a lotus flower on her right hand.Adhi Shankara  in Meenakshi Pancha rathnam describes   her  in an enchanting, devotion  dripping way as follows:-
“I always bow before that Meenakshi, who is the treasure house of mercy,
Who shines like billions of rising suns,
Who wears a shining crown,
Who has reddish lips like the Bimba fruits,
Who has shining rows of sparkling teeth,
Who decorates herself with reddish silk,
Whose feet is worshipped by Vishnu, Brahma and Indra,
Who is the consort Of Lord Shiva,
And who is the personification of sacred truth.   1
I always bow before that Meenakshi, who is the treasure house of mercy,
Who shines in a crown decorated by garland of pearls,
Whose face shines similar to the full moon,
Who wears tinkling anklets full of gems,
Who shines like a  fully opened lotus,
Who blesses her devotees with all their wishes,
Who is the daughter of the mountain,
And who is served by Goddess Saraswathi and Lakshmi.  2
I always bow before that Meenakshi, who is the treasure house of mercy,
Who is the sacred knowledge of Sri Vidhya,
Who dwells in the left side of Lord Shiva,
Who shines with the sacred sound “Hreem”,
Who is in the central dot of the holy design of Sri Chakra,
Who is the lady presiding over the court of Lord Shiva,
Who is the mother of Lord Subramnya and Ganesa,
And who is the enchanter of the universe.  3
I always bow before that Meenakshi, who is the treasure house of mercy,
Who is the consort of Lord Sundaresa,
Who removes fears,
Who grants knowledge,
Who is purest of the pure,
Who is black in colour,
Whose feel are worshipped by lotus flowers,
Who is the sister of Lord Narayana,
Who enjoys music from Veena, drum and flute,
And who is the goddess of varied aspects.     4
I always bow before that Meenakshi, who is the treasure house of mercy,
Who stays in the hearts of different yogis and saints,
Who grants different wealth and occult powers,
Whose feet shine with various flowers ,
Who is worshipped by Lord Narayana,
Who is the all pervasive sound of the holy spirit,
Who is greater than the great,
And who is the meaning of various philosophies.   5.
