From Ammas Heart brings you the nectar of Amma’s wisdom to your life. Since ancient times, the tradition of worshipping the Supreme in the feminine — as the Mother — has been prevalent in India as well as in some other regions of the world. In fact, many of Amma’s children from different parts of the world have brought forms of the Divine Mother as was worshipped in their ancient traditions. All four Vedas praise the Parasakti — the feminine energy.
This can be seen in the Vedic hymns like Durga Suktam, Sri Suktam, etc. In the Ramayana, Lord Rama invokes Goddess Durga for victory over Ravana. Similarly, as instructed by Lord Krishna, the Pandavas worship Goddess Durga for victory in the Mahabharata War. In order to wed Lord Krishna, the gopis invoke Goddess Durga. All this goes to show just how ancient the tradition of Devi worship is in our culture. Sanatana Dharma gives each individual the freedom to worship God in whatever manifestation or mood he likes.
