The Pratyangira aspect of the Divine has been a bit of a secret
for most of these past ages. Many believed that direct experience
with this energy was reserved for Saints and Rishis. Seeing
Pratyangira in any form was considered an enormous blessing,
and an indication that you were in similar company. 

Pratyangira comes from a deep, deep place within the Divine 
Mother; an area simply known as the Void. In the Void there are
no thoughts of fear, or pain, or loss, or want, or time, or even 
space… just the warmth of the Mother’s love.  

As Pratyangira energy manifests, it’s often a very swift and 
sometimes ferocious current. Many of the Saints who’ve seen
it’s energetic expression have described it as half lion and half 
human. The lion head is that of a male and the body is that of 
a female, representing the union of Shiva and Shakti. In her 
full form, she is humongous, with 1008 heads (symbolically 
representing the 1008-petalled Sahasrara Chakra, the universal
chakra of the cosmic energy) and 2016 hands, riding 
majestically on a chariot pulled by 4 lions (representing the 
4 Vedas), carrying many swords for removing obstacles. 
The jaws of so many lions makes it very powerful for destroying 
negative karmas, and a great blessing for anyone on a spiritual
path. However, such a current can be understandably rough, 
so it’s wise to approach with respect and some consideration
of what our heart is asking for.   

Two Rishis in the ancient times, Pratyangira and Angiras, in 
their deep meditation, discovered this goddess through her 
Moola Mantra in the ethereal waves of the sound current. And 
though this Mother is nameless, she honored these Rishis by 
giving the blessings to be named after them. She has hence
been known as Sri Maha Pratyangira Devi. The beejaksharam
(seed letter) of her Mantra is ksham (bliss).
Sri Maha Pratyangira Devi is all powerful and secretly protects
devotees and others. She is always by the side of Her 
devotees. She is within each and every being in all planes of 
existence, and there to be awakened within. 

An awareness of Sri Maha Pratyangira Devi has been only 
quietly known, until recently. Although the Siddha Masters and
great Maha Rishis like Sri Dhurvasha Munivar and Puli Paani 
Siddhar have been devotees of this mother. 

It is in that line of great devotion that Amma and Swami are 
servants to this Mother.
