    About Akilandeswari

    Akilandeswari - Incarnation of Parvati

    Akilandeswari is a Sanskrit name, a combination of three words, i.e., ‘Akilam’ meaning the universe, ‘Aand’ meaning who rules and ‘Eswari’ meaning the Supreme Goddess, so she is the Supreme Goddess that rules the universe. She is considered as the mother of the universe. Another meaning of her name is ‘the one who is never not broken’. She is the goddess for times of disarray. She is prayed to when fears, confusion, chaos and hysteria controls the heart.

    Legend

    Akilandeswari was a fierce and angry Goddess, who could have punished her worshippers for even slightest of a mistake like offering her sour milk or not so fresh flowers. So scared they were of her wrath that they didn’t even enter her temple but rather prayed to her from the outside.  A kinder, gentler aspect of the Goddess might not punish her followers but might ignore them completely. Their prayers might never be answered and they might go unnoticed throughout their lives.

    Many devotees prayed to Shiva, her consort, to save them from the wrath of the Goddess. Shiva, once brought a pair of triangle-shaped earrings for her (Magical Sri Chakra earrings that contained nine interlocking triangles. As soon as she wore the, all her wrath and anger got captured in those earrings. ShivaShivaShiva

    also placed Ganesha’s statue across hers in the temple (mentioned below). She transformed into a generous and benevolent goddess who was no more full of rage but of love and compassion.  

    Symbolism and Depiction

    Akilandeswari’s mount is a crocodile. Crocodile symbolizes the fear that resides in our heart and her riding it means that she gives strength and power to overcome our fears. She embodies the cataclysmic and transformative process that the universe, including the mankind, goes through. She presents the power of being broken and then transforming into something beautiful. Uncertainties can weaken humans, but there is nothing wrong in being broken until and unless they are ready to be transformed into a stronger being and despite of all the ‘breaking’, humans become a beautiful creature.

She encourages her devotees to free themselves from the burden and guilt of the past, routines, and habits. She inspires exploration and innovation.  She also depicts ‘choice’ and want her followers to exercise the burden to choose and take the initiative of creating themselves.

    mocked Shiva’s penance for the betterment of the world. Shiva got angry and asked her to go on earth and perform penance. She sat under a Venn Naaval tree (believed to be grown on top of a sage named Jambu) and performed her penance by making a lingam (source of power of Shiva) out of water from a river nearby named Cauvery. After years, Shiva visited Parvati to teach her some lessons. These lessons were heard by Parvati facing East from Shiva, who stood facing West.

    This is how their idols have been placed in the temple too. They are standing opposite to each other. Unlike most of the temples of Shiva and Parvati, they are not worshiped as a married couple but rather as a student and teacher.
