Sri Mathru bhoothesa  Stotram(Thayumanavar  stotram) followed by
Mathru Bhootheswara  Manthra for ensuring  safe delivery.

By
Sage Sarama(Sarama Muni)

Translated  by
P.R.Ramachander



(in the  great  temple town of Trichy (Trisira  palli  found by a king called Trisira )  of Tamil Nadu  , there is a temple complex consisting  of  temples  on  a rocky hill called in English as  rock fort. This rockfort according to  Hindu devotees is a part of the Mount Kailasa, which was once thrown here by   a very torrential wind. So it is called DAkshina Kailasam.  The main temple in this complex  is a temple of Lord Shiva  , called  Mathrubhootheswarar  in Sanskrit and  THayumanavar  in temple, It seems  there was a lady in state of advanced   state of pregnancy on the other shore  of the Cauvery  .Her mother had to cross the river   and come  to TRichy on an errand. RAthnavali developed  delivery pains   and was crying  for her mother. Since there was a sudden flood  in the river Cauvery her mother   could not reach her .According to believes , Lord Shiva took   the form of Rathnavali’s mother  , assisted Rathnavali  in her delivery and then vanished. Due to this from then on the God was called  THayumanavar (he   who  also became the mother.) He is also called Chevvandhi Nadhar   as he he was  worshipped  by Sarama muni   using Chevvandhi flowers   brought   from Naga  LOka. The Goddess is called  Sugandha Kundalambikai or Mattuvar Kuzhali  and has a seperatew  temple. This rarest  of the rare stotras is given in the collection of Stotras   called  Jayamangala stotram by late  SEngalipuram Anantharama  Deekshithar. Please recite it daily  in the home where  any lady is expecting delivery.It is expected that   she would have a  safe delivery due to the  grace of God   who also became a mother. )
