ARANYA DEVI

Aranya Devi is what is known as a Goddess of Sakama-bhakti. She is supposed to fulfill whatever desires are expressed before her by the devotee. This goddess being essentially a goddess of the masses, the number of such vows taken and gifts made or other acts performed in fulfillment of such vows is very great. And the forms are varied.

Devotees come here and ask for all sorts of things. Some are childless and pray to the goddess to be blessed with one. Others want money, still others desire a particular matrimonial alliance. All come and utter a vow before the goddess that if their desire is fulfilled, they would offer naivedya of bread and cooked sweetened gram. Some people bind themselves to make a pilgrimage to this kshetra (place) on some fixed days.Some carry jars filled with water and pour it on the image for a fixed number of days.
