About Goddess Kamala:
Goddess Kamala is one of the Ten Mahavidyas who is known as the wisdom Goddesses. She is also the Hindu Goddess of consciousness and creation. Goddess Kamala is represented as a beautiful woman adorned with golden skin and seated or standing on a lotus. She is also seen holding two more lotuses that symbolize both fertility and purity. The Goddess is accompanied by huge elephants who pour jars of nectar on Her. Goddess Kamala is considered as the Mahavidya form of Goddess Lakshmi, who represents wealth and beauty. As one of the Ten Mahavidyas Goddess Kamala represents the unfolding of inner consciousness into the richness of creation. The Goddess is known for the power to eradicate poverty, both material and spiritual. Kamala’s name, which means, ‘She of the lotus’ is also seen as Kamalatmika.
Kamala Goddess has an elegant golden complexion. In Her four hands She holds two lotuses and is seen granting boons and giving assurance to Her devotees. She wears a dazzling crown on Her head and puts on a silken dress. She also wears a kaustibha Gem and has a smiling face. The Goddess is seen seated on a lotus in a lotus posture. As the Goddess of material and spiritual wealth and beauty, Kamala is worshipped during tough economic times. She is a benign Goddess who blesses Her devotees with good luck, power, wealth and safety.
Goddess Kamala is also widely known for Her creative force. She has the power to create beauty and wealth around us, and to see beauty in everything. The bija mantra or the seed mantra of the Goddess is EE. In transliterated Sanskrit there would be an i with the line over the top. One needs to place an M after the EE, to make EEM. This would show Her complete energy in beej form. From EE sound to closed M makes the range of Her Shakti. This is the primal Shakti beej, this sound is heard in all other beejam such as Shreem, Hreem, Kreem. This EEM beej is sometimes named as Yoni beej. Yoni is the form of a female’s sex organ and is in form of a lotus. It is the basic female principle. Goddess Kamala is also considered the most beautiful Mahavidya.”
“Kamala as lotus Goddess also represents developement of the person by maintaining the dharma of keeping the seven chakras open. She upholds sadhana. Lotus=chakra. Lotus Goddess is advancement Goddess. This is why She, as Shree or Lakshmi, is called Shakti of Shiva.
In beauty the Goddesses who most represent Her are Shree, Lakshmi, Bala, and Lalita. She is very sattvic like Venus or Aphrodite, and of the Mahavidyas most like the Christian Mary.
Kamala is the first and most primal female energy. More developed, She takes on the other qualities of the other Mahavidyas. In fact, there is really no difference here because we are discussing deities that can change forms like lycantropes.
When God manifests She does so to suit the moment like how we humans dress for success. We don’t always try to look uptight and professional, sometimes we like to dress down in bikinis and relax. Kamala is very much dressed down and relaxed.
To worship Her in any form is acceptable because She is in all forms as all forms are from Prakriti or Mother Nature. We still maintain decorum even in bikinis. So also Her worship entails restraint. She is the Light Goddess and likes fine and sattvic things and actions like charity.
As bride of Vishnu She loves a person who preserves other lives.
Ask Her to help and She will give you Her blessings. But remain generous and faithful or She will be fickle. You should worship Her during hard times for relief. She gives peace, prosperity and pleasure, and moksha.”
