MELMARUVATHUR

ADIPARASAKTI AND HER POWERS

The Archamurthi of this temple is called Sri Adiparasakti the supreme manifestation of Pranava - the ultimate cause of the Universe and the ruler of cosmos. And as she combines in Herself Jnana Sakti - Knowledge, Ichchasakti - desire and Kriyasakti - action, she is worshipped in three distinct names, such as Mahalakshmi - standing for wealth, Mahakali symbolising strength and Maha Saraswathi representing knowledge. Little wonder, that the devotees grow vociferous in their statements - knock, thou art answered; entreat thou art redeemed; beseech, thou art succored; implore, thou art bestowed; cry, thou art consoled and step in thou art spiritualized.

Hence to the pious she is Prema Swarupini embodiment of love; Papanasini - destroyer of sin, Mokshapradayani - bestower of liberation, Lokasamrakshani Preserver of the World; Soka Samharini - wiper of Sorrow, Roganivarini - healer of ailments etc. As 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 august divinity.
