She has a deep beauty that shines from within her soul and warms everyone with her energy. She is a goddess with a boar's head represented as sitting on a lion. Her dark complexion symbolizes her transcendental nature. She is a Minerva, goddess of wisdom and beauty. She is the heavenly beauty of eight hands. Each hand has a Sangu, a Chakram, a Gadhai, a Kadgam, a Mushalam, a Damaragam, an Abayavaradam and an Ulakkai. She is dressed in "silk dresses and jewels".

By Worshipping her, a devotee becomes a pure and refined soul. Since she is the incarnation of Gnana (Knowledge), worshiping her will encourage her to acquire knowledge in abundance, which is the springboard for success in life.

She is the embodiment of Raja Rajeshwari. She waits patiently and gracefully to reveal her heart ready to receive us.

Story of Pandasura:

Pandasura was a great Shiva Bhakta. After thousands of years of penance, Lord Shiva appeared before him and the demon asked for a special blessing that he would never be killed by anyone and live forever. However, Lord Shiva had a different opinion about the appearance of the birth and death of humans. He said that anyone born on this earth must die one day. Pandasura has established a condition that it should not be killed by humans, animals or natural causes. It can only be canceled by a woman who is not born of another woman. He also insisted that she live her life by eating feces as food. Shiva answered that wish.

Pandasura, being a great warrior and having achieved this particular desire, entered the dangerous game of the massacre of human beings to rule over power. When the Devas felt that their torture exceeded the limits, they approached Lord Shiva for their intervention in order to save them from this cruel leader, but Lord Shiva expressed his incapacity in this regard since he had given this blessing and asked them to approach the Divine Mother Sri Raja Rajeshwari for a solution. When they approached the Goddess, she reassured them with the promise that Pandasura would soon be destroyed.

She began to think about the type of incarnation that would help her kill Pandasura, since he was destined to die for a single creation, which should be born as a woman and not in the human body. There was only one possibility for this strange combination. It was the incarnation of a wild boar: a wild pig with tusks with a female human body and a wild boar face.

However, there was a problem since Sri Maha Vishnu had already taken the same incarnation in the form of Varahi. (Dasavatharam)

At the request of Sri Vishnu and keeping her form in the background, Mother took the form of a boar and became known as Sri Maha Varahi. Sri Maha Varahi, his son, Lord Ganesha, took it, destroyed Pandasura and brought peace.


The worship of the goddess Maha Varahi is the result of past virtues and good works. Chanting Varahi Varahi Varahi three times will bring infinite happiness and euphoria to life.
