Om shakthi temple - Melmaruvathur

Om shakthi temple - Melmaruvathur



Adhiparasakthi Temple - Melmaruvathur : Three feet tall Mother Adhi Parasakthi appears in a sitting posture with right leg kneeled, and the left touching the lotus shaped phallus thus indicating that She is all Supreme.  Mother is holding lotus bud in Her right hand.  As a tradition, Gods and Goddesses are formed with four hands.  But here, as in the Madurai Sri Meenakshi Amman temple, Mother Adhi Parasakthi appears with two hands only.   It is said that such forms – with two hands – are adopted in such places where the Goddess functioned in a human form.  Her hair is knotted upward indicating high wisdom.
The Lotus phallus on which Mother is sitting indicates that She is in the heart of devotees.  It may be recalled that the shape of human heart is also as a lotus bud placed upside down.  The petals of the Lotus are both upward and downward indicating higher spiritual efforts and the material leaning of the human mind respectively.  The sitting posture of Mother Adhi Parasakthi tells that She is pulling the unwise to enlightenment and that She is all supreme. 
It may be recalled that the idol of Mother Adhi Parasakthi was sculpted by Sri Ganapawthi Sthapathi, principal of Mahabalipuram Sculpture College. 
This is probably the only temple in Tamilnadu where women enjoy the right of men-priests performing pujas in the very sanctum sanctorum of the temple.  As a rule during the monthly cycle days, women do not go to temples for physical purity reasons.  There is no such restriction to them in this temple.  As this is a rule of nature in case of women, no debate on the issue is necessary, says Bangaru Adigalar.
