Beej Mantra || Om Hreem Kushmandayai Jagatprasootyai Namah ||

Maa Kushmanda, the fourth Avatar of Goddess Durga, is worshipped on the 4th day of Navratri 2023. She rules your Heart chakra ruled by Narayana. Her name means 'the cosmic egg' and she is considered the creator of the universe. As per the Hindu mythology, Lord Vishnu was able to start creating the universe when Maa Kushmanda smiled like a flower which blossomed with a bud. She created the world from nothing, at the time when there was eternal darkness all around. This Swarup of Maa Durga is the source of all. Since she created the universe, she is called Adiswarup and Adishakti.

Once there was a complete darkness all around. A divine formless light spread everywhere, lighting up the voide darkness in all the directions. The light assumed a form of goddess and she was Goddess Kushmanda. ‘Ku’ means little, ‘Ushma’ means warmth or life energy and ‘Anda’ means cosmic egg. When she smiled the light assumed the shape of an egg and turned into a habitable universe.

All the material planets and other galaxies started springing up. Then she caused the planets full of bright light and heat to emerge. Those planets came to be known as suns that sustained the innumerable lives on different planets. The suns became the source of energy on all those planets in different galaxies but She became the source of the suns.

After that, She created a pitch black goddess from her left eye The black goddess had ten faces, ten arms, ten feet, thirty eyes, fifty fingers and fifty toes. The goddess was Mahakali who was seated on a burning funeral pyre with cleaver, trident, discus, arrow, shield, severed head, skull-cup, conch-shell, cross-bow and a club.

Next, She created a ferocious goddess from her third eye. That goddess with the complexion of lava had eighteen arms. She was named Mahalakshmi who was in saffron clothes with a warrior’s armour seated on a lotus and roared ferociously.

Next She created Mahasaraswati with the complexion of milk from Her right eye. Mahasaraswati had eight arms and three placid eyes. She wore white clothes and had a divine crescent on her forehead and other weapons like trishul, discus, pestle, arrow, shell, bell, bow and a ploughshare.

After Mahasaraswati, Goddess Kushmanda created a man with five heads and a woman from the body of Mahasaraswati The man had lotus, divine books, rosary and a waterpot. She named is Brahma. The woman who had four arms and who was in the white sari with a goad, a rosary, a book and a lotus was named Saraswati. In the same way She created a man and a woman from Mahalakshmi and named them Lakshmi-Vishnu.

She has eights hands in which she holds Kamandul, bow, arrow, a jar of nectar (Amrit), discus, mace and a lotus, and in one hand she holds a rosary which blesses her devotees with the Ashtasiddhis and Navniddhis. She is also known as Ashtabhuja. She has a radiant face and golden body complexion.

Maa Kushmanda represents Anahata Chakra in spiritual practice. The divine blessing of Maa Kushmanda helps you fulfill your desires. She brings enemies in your goodwill. Maa brings light into darkness and establishes harmony in your life.

Goddess Kushmanda Mantra & Puja Vidhi:

Goddess Parvati (after the Siddhidatri manifestation) started residing in the centre of the Sun ensuring that He releases the power to the universe. This manifestation is known as Kushmanda. This divinity has the power to live inside of the Sun. It is said that She radiates the fire and energy of the Sun.

She is shown riding a lioness and has eight hands. In Her right hand She holds Kamandal, Dhanush, Bada and Kamal and in Her left hand She holds Amrit Kalash, Jap Mala, Gada and Chakra. Because of Her eight hands She is also known as Ashtabhuja Devi. It is believed that She created this entire universe with Her mere smile.

Kushmanda Puja Vidhi:

The fourth night of Navratri begins with worship of Kushmanda which is performed by using sacred puja items. The devotee uses a shallow pan like utensil made of clay as base. Three layers of mud and Sapta Dhanya/Navadhanya (grains) seeds are poured into the pan. The next is a little water is sprinkled so that seeds get enough moisture. A Kalasha (holy water pot) filled with Ganga jal, Supari, a few coins, Akshat (raw rice mixed with turmeric powder) and Durva grass is placed in the base. Then the five Mango tree leaves put around the neck of the Kalash which is then covered by a coconut.

  • Goddess Durga truly does protect not only me but the entire family

    Dear Kantiji, I made the head mala with 1 Mukhi in the center and placed the nine, 9 mukhi beads in two pairs on each side of the head with the ninth 9 mukhi at the rear of the mala. I, however felt that I wanted to have the 1 Mukhi Rudraksha with me all the time so it became part of a mala containing 1 through 14 Mukhi including a newly acquired 9 mukhi I asked Ms. Neeta for, plus Ganesha Bead and GauriShankar totaling 28 Rudraksha in total. I tried wearing the nine 9 mukhi as a braclet but found that my activities placed them in harm's way. I was afraid that I would inadvertently hit them on close

  • The most happy news for us

    Dear All, Good Day. I first purchased a Akarshaya Siddha Mala from RC. Immediately after that I was given the additional responsibility of photographing all my company�s activity. For short it can be called as I became the official photographer of my company. After that I got my bank loan to clear off all my financial issues. I did that. Along with that I went for an Indra Mala. This time after much delay from my side I got the mala which was reserved to me by Neetaji (which was energized on the 9 days of navratri). I started wearing both malas and my spiritual levels are increasing very muc close

  • Effect of Shilas and Rudraksha

    Dear Neetaji,   I have been trying so hard to send you and email but have not been able to.  I have not whined and cried for 4 months and you must be wondering about the total silence. Ever since I received the shilas and the Rudrakshas my life has gradually changed so much. Most of the changes are good and very positive but some are scary.   The Shilas arrived around our wedding anniversary January 8th. The happy changes are as follows:   1.

    Dear Rudra Centre, I am very happy with the products that i have purchased thus far from your website. In a world where there are millions of cheats, trying to make a quick dollar from devotees in the name of the good lord, selling false beads and low quality products, it is nice to know that rudra centre is so genuine and so caring. This company truly is looking for the enlightenment and aid of all people. The products that you sell have helped my family members greatly.
