Significance of Mata Vaishno Devi
Mata Vaishno Devi is the holy cave-shrine of Goddess Mahalakshmi, Mahakali, and Mahasaraswati. It is a very popular pilgrimage among Hindus. Devotees from around the world visit the shrine everyday. It is located in the serene-niches of Trikuta Mountains, forming a part of lower Himalayas.
In the cave shrine, there are-images of three deities or Goddess Mahakali, Mahalakshmi, and Mahasaraswati and all three of them are considered to be forms of Maa Shakti; Goddess of Energy.
Fortunately by Goddess Durga's grace, me with my family have been visiting Mata Vaishno Devi every year. My three-and-a-half-year-old daughter, Shronika and my wife accompany me to the trip. We all take Goddess Durga's name and happily enjoy the pilgrimage. Last year we also had a chance to visit Golden Temple in Amritsar and did darshan of Wahe Guru Ji. I am uploading a few photographs of Mata Vaishno Devi with some information about the places we use to visit during our trip.
Mata's auspicious Navratras have started and today is the first navratra. I have fasted today and my wife has kept all the seven fasts as she used to keep. We will visit Maa Vaishno Devi in 2016 if maa will call us.
In 2015, I poured all the love streaming through my heart and soul in the feet of my beloved mother Maa Kali. I am very thankful to Maa Kali - Om Kali Ma as she fulfilled my wish. People take her wrong as she is goddess of death and destruction but she destroys our ego and hate. She is so lively, lovely and vibrant. She is blissful and charming. Her dark color is deep and intense and she is motherly and full of divine energy. I asked her to show me the path and she is constantly helping me. I have complete faith on her and by her grace I will definitely realize all my dreams.
I pray to all three mothers to lift the poor and helpless and wish good luck to everyone. Under her guidance I will spread love and respect of other human beings and also animals and birds. My dear friends, when you come in refuge (sharan) of Mataji, do confess and share all your pains, and sorrows. Promise her that you will follow her advice and ask her to show path and she will definitely guide you. Then she will start giving you hints so strong that you cannot ignore these. Don't feel shy from her as she knows everything. All the wrongdoings you have done with yourself or with other people. Ask her to please forgive.
Jai Maa Kali
Jai Maa Lakshmi
Jai Maa Saraswati
