After performing Sri Bhagavathi Seva in Tampa, FL - I had a chance to perform this pooja here in Indy. The devotees were enjoyed the pooja with full devotion and bhakthi - may the GOD bless this family and the devotees who atended this pooja.
In Bhagavathi Seva, one can see the principles of Thanthra in a simplified form. The ‘Padmam’ which is used as a seat for the Devi is a symbolic representation of the Brahmanda (Universe). Five colors, which are the symbols of ‘Panchabhootas’ (Five elements), are used to make the Padmam. Avahana of the Devi (Invocation) is the simplified version of the Pratishta (Installation).
