all over the globe to the promotion of devotion through poojas and the
humanitarian activities, encompassing educational and medical under the guidance
of the Adi Parasaki Charitable, Medical, Educational and Cultural Trust,
presided over by H.H. Bangaru Adigalar, the pontiff of the Adiparasakti pitham.
Now turn up
to the presiding Deity called Adiparasakti.
she is answering every call of the grief-stricken, like granting speech to the
dumb; sight to the blind; hearing to the deaf; walking to the lame and recovery
from the incurable, besides absolving them from self wrought and preordained
abrasions as well, she is adored as the Pratyaksha Daivam. Have a look at that
idol of Sri Adiparasakti in Sukhasana - in easeful sitting posture is placed on
a black stone shaped into a lotus serving pedestal. She reveals herself in
Santha Swarupa - the tranquil aspect and accepts only Sativika Puja - absence
of animal sacrifices. Right below the idol lies the Swayambhu the self-manifested lingam-the prime cause of the emergence of Sri Adi Parasakti
temple. To the left, adjoining the Karuvarai there is a small shrine called
Puthu Mandapam - where according to tradition, Sri Adiparasakti was doing
penance in the form of serpent. Next to it lies the Saptakanyakar Mandapam,
enshrining the big size images of Saptakanyas. Behind this lies a huge image of
Nagendra spreading his out-spread hood over Durga in sitting posture.
