MOTHER KANAKADURGESWARI OF VIJAYAWADA

THE DAIVAM ASPECT

And now comes the 'Daivam' aspect in the Triputi. The principal deity of this kshetra is Mata Kanakadurgeswari and she has been abiding here since the death of Mahishasura and is worshipped as Mahishasura Mardhini also. Fittingly, as it appears, in the town and outside, Mother Kanakadurga is more popular and widely known than her spouse Malleswara, taking his abode on the same hill and at very close quarters to her, say at about 500 yards away. Despite Lord Siva is adored in many more shrines atop and down below the hill, he is given importance next to that of Mata Kanakadurga, but that does not mean he is forgotten, nor assigned an inferior place. My be due to the fact that Siva becomes sava, a might consciousness only and Mother Parvathi stands for Sakti- Energy-the source of every movement"' in the cosmos, and Siva symbolizing consciousness moves only in harmonious combination with Sakti.
