SAKTHA RELIGION

Sakthas are those who worship the Supreme Deity exclusively as a FEMALE PRINCIPLE. The Supreme Deity is the Universal Mother or MAA as she is affectionately called by her Bakthas . MAA is Love and Compassion personified. She is full of kindness and joy . She is Karunamayi and Anandamayi.

Unfortunately people view God or the Supreme Deity as a Maa Chandipower who punishes the devotees for their misdeeds. But how can a mother punish her children for their misdeeds. Reprimand, warn may be , but no mother punishes her children to hurt them. When we visualise the Supreme Deity as full of Love and Compassion how can she punish her children? Since the images of MAA carry many weapons it is mistakenly believed that MAA is always angry and ready to punish her devotee.

delt03sr.gif (1160 bytes)DEVI MAHAATMYAM is the Supreme book of the Sakthas. MAA fights and vanquishes the evil forces . It clearly shows that MAA is always willing to take up arms against the evil forces to protect her Devotee. The evil forces in this modern age are many and we pray to MAA to wipe out the evil forces of this world. In the mental plane we pray to her to get rid of Anger, Lust and Greed which makes us unhappy .Rather than punishing the Devotee MAA is always on the lookout for even a semblance of goodness in her Devotee so that she can reward him. A prayer to MAA will bring us happiness.
