The Bhagavati Seva Pooja is an ancient and powerful ceremony in honor of the goddess Raja Rajeswari, who is revered for her prosperity, fertility, purity and abundance. The ritual is performed to purify the aura of negativity that surrounds us and to correct the destabilizing influences of the planets, thus restoring peace and harmony in our lives. The practice prevailing mainly in the state of Kerala, in southern India, aims to satisfy desires, relieve misery and restore balance in the world. This ritual is performed primarily at night with worship offered to the goddesses Parvati, Durga or Kali. Performing this pooja allows us to receive the benign grace of the goddess and to bless us with longevity, health, wealth, and happiness.
Unique Traits of Bhagavathi Seva Pooja:
Only specially trained Nambudri priests and initiated by a guru are allowed to perform this ritual, which involves invoking the energy of the goddess in a large lamp placed in a diagram drawn by hand from a lotus symbolizing the universe. The Pooja can be performed with a minimum of supplies, and the priest must lead the Pooja with great humility, which means that he submits abjectly to the goddess.
Bhagavathi Seva Pooja Prerequisite:
The priest is required to wear new and clean clothes after being cleansed with ablutions and the Pooja can be done at home or in a temple. Kerala’s style of singing mantras with signs requires devotion and is recommended when performing this ritual to protect participants from external disturbances. When the goddess is satisfied with the flattery that has struck her, she gives you the blessings you are looking for with great respect.
