Ayurdevi - Mother of Universe

Sri Aayur Devi, the Empress of the Universe, is a manifestation of the Universal Mother Parashakti. Mother Ayur Devi's worship was prevalent in a grand manner during the in the Kritha (Satya)Yuga. Seated on a Siddha swan (anna vaahanam) on a base of Siddha lions (simha peetam), the blissful Mother offers a seat(kara peetam) to nine great Siddhas in eight of Her nine divine hands. Her ninth hand shows the Abaya Hastha or the fear not sign. Siddhas are those who always are at bliss at the worship of Mother Parashakthi or Sri Devi Upaasana and have dedicated their lives for fetching salvation for this mankind.

Maa Ayurdevi

With the Trimoorthi ( Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva) trinity looking on in awe, Sri Chitragupta ( Assistant of Lord Yama) dutifully cataloging the karma of all beings, Sri Yama and His consort worshiping Her, the great Mother presides over the universe. Usually we can see the Siddhas form only in the temple pillars but the moment one worships Mother Ayur devi he gets double benefitted of worshipping the Mother Ayur Devi as well the Siddhas.

Chanting this set of 27 names four times, is equivalent to one Ashtotara (108 names). Chanting this Ashtotara ten times will be a Sahasranama (1000 names) and that is highly recommended. 10 sahasranamas per day pays way to the Mother's grace!

Performing Kalasa Puja for Her is very auspicious during Navrathiri. Doing archana (offering flowers at the Mother's lotus feet with the recitation of every name) with gold/yellow colored fragrant flowers is highly recommended. This is the way to get sarva mangala sowbhagya - all auspiciousness and prosperity.
