The great Shakti, energy and consciousness of the Divine Mother Sri Maha Pratyangira Devi is rising in the present time, in the now. This is a spiritually historic time, a time when this primordial unifying Shakti is coming back from the Himalayas and expanding after many eons, yugas, of being forgotten and submerged. This is also the story of Adiyargals (devotees and servants of the Divine) Amma Adi Sakthi and Swami Shanmuga as they transform themselves into a living Himalayan Yogini and Yogi. They are now spending extended periods of time in the Himalayas in Tapasya, a profound spiritual discipline, spent mostly in solitude and aimed at lifting the consciousness in the world. They are walking in the rich tradition of the rishis and realized saints of India. They have always been on this path in this lifetime and others as it is their soul calling from the Divine Mother.
A beautiful set of events are unfolding synchronistically. Unbeknownst to each other, matching prophecies and visions were revealed to Amma and to a tribe of Pratyangira devotees in the Himalayas. The loving grace and guiding hand of the Divine Mother is bringing them together and the prophecies are now coming to fruition. The Pratyangira consciousness is awakening and flowering in more and more people besides those already closely connected with this all-powerful Goddess.
This is an invitation to you, dear reader, to join this journey and adventure. Each one of us can be part of this journey and be touched and lifted by the Mother Pratyangira. As this Shakti is rising, each one of us can partake in it, connect with it, tap into it and lift ourselves up. There is a rich history of the Pratyangira energies in the Himalayas. After a long, too long a time, She is reemerging. And how!
The defining essence of the Mother Pratyangira is the VOID which is of pure love, where everything is unmanifest and where everything is in Unity, in Ekatvam, in Oneness. This Void is at the core of each of us, and the journey to the Void is a story of our return to the core essence of who we are. It is possible for each of us to reach deep within ourselves, to reach, touch, and experience the Void and to become One with our Higher Self.
For many years now, since 1992, Amma Adi Sakthi was having visions of the Pratyangira Mother and receiving prophecies from Her. The Mother revealed to Amma that Pratyangira Devi was worshipped by the people in the Himalayas thousands of years back and that She was the main deity there. The Himalayas are called ‘Devabhoomi’ or the land of Gods and Goddesses. It is here that many saints and rishis attained moksha, or liberation with the Divine. It is here where great energies are embedded, waiting to be uncovered for the upliftment of consciousness in the world.
However, over the millennia, Pratyangira Devi’s energies in the Himalayas got submerged and hidden and Her consciousness was forgotten. Her energy resources and live energies got buried under the ground and She was all but forgotten.
But this primordial Shakti cannot go into oblivion. It is ever-present, waiting to rise back, to be uncovered. It was revealed to Amma that the Mother Pratyangira would re-emerge back in the Himalayas and rise forth, that many people would know about Her and would be healed by Her, and it is all going to happen in the present times in which we live. Which is exactly what is unfolding now, in August 2019. It actually started unfolding about 27 years back and is gaining momentum now...
Over the years, Amma was having strong feelings of having been separated from that manifestation of her own Self ages back, and the yearning to be reunited with that consciousness. Amma would strongly feel that an integral part of her is elsewhere, and experienced a feeling of incompletion without coming in union with the other part.
The visions of the tribe of people who were dedicated to the Mother Pratyangira many eons back would flash in Amma's third eye. It was shown to her that there is a lineage of people from that tribe still in the Himalayas who are connected with the Mother Pratyangira. There was a yearning for Amma to be part of this tribe, to be united with them. It is a feeling of separation, an emptiness that is hard to describe.
It was shown to Amma that such a place of the submerged Pratyangira energies is in existence in the Himalayas, and that it would be revealed to her soon. She was confounded at these revelations, because it is a popularly accepted belief that Mother Pratyangira is known only in South India and more specifically in Tamil Nadu. Pratyangira Devi is not as well-known as the other forms of the Divine Mother like Kali, Durga, Saraswati. Mother Pratyangira, in North India, in the Himalayas? At times, Amma felt that that the prophecies were off and was in disbelief.
By a strange set of synchronous events, which is another story in itself, back in January 2019, Amma and Swami came to know about the presence of Mother Pratyangira in a village called Katrain nestled in the Himalayas in Himachal Pradesh, in North India. They also got to know the people that are associated with Her Temple in Katrain, thanks to the Internet.
Could this be the place that Mother Pratyangira has been showing Amma in her visions? This has been a question constantly in her mind for the past several months. Was this the place where the Mother’s energies are rooted in the Himalayas? Are those people serving the Mother there in Katrain descendents of the tribe of people who originally prayed to Her in this place? Would the people there accept them? So many questions in our minds as we embark on this journey.
The three of us Adiyargals, Amma Adi Sakthi, Swami Shanmuga and Amalananda have been in the Himalayas for the past three weeks, in our quest to discover the Mother Pratyangira and to do our part in letting the world know about this rising energy. And so we arrived in Katrain with a feeling of anticipation, with an inner knowing that something big was unfolding. And indeed, something big has unfolded and continues to.
This is the first of a series of posts. We will blog our experiences with the Devi and Her people. It has been a fascinating experience and continues to be, as the energies of the Mother Pratyangira often move fast and sometimes in unconventional ways and most times in unexpected ways. And we want to share those experiences with you and take you along with us in this journey. We invite you to join us in this journey, partake in the Mother’s energies and help us bring out Her healing grace to many people.
