THE GODDESS WHO HAS PERIODS

It is a beautiful image of about 2 1/2 feet height with Pleasing aspects. With eyes resembling the petals of a lotus and a gentle smile playing on the lips the face resembles the full moon's orb, beautiful like the splendor of gold.

Benign Bhagavati

The Devi has two hands with varada (grant of desires) and Abhaya (freedom from fear) postures. She is satodari (of slender waist), komalangi (delicate-limbed) and sarvabharanabhushita (adorned with every ornament). With a profusion of brass lamps in front, the image glitters in ad and gold splendor. Gazing at her, whose eyes are full of compassion, one indeed experiences exuberant transcendental bliss.  There are upadevatas too in the temple-'Ganesa to the right of Siva and Chandeesan, one of Siva's servants to the northwest. Outside the temple there is a shrine on the southwest corner, to its north N and Sthaleesan on the northwest. Outside -gopuram there 'is a Krishna temple with Ganga, Jatadhari as upadevatas.
