The fifth form of Mother is that of Skandamata. According to Chandogyashruti, the second name of ‘Kartikeya’, son of Shiva and Parvati is ‘Skanda’, hence mother Parvati is also called ‘Skandmata’.
The fifth form of Mother is that of Skandmata. According to Chandogyasruti, ‘Skanda’ is another name of ‘Kartikeya’, the son of Shiva and Parvati. In this way, being the mother of Skanda, this form of Adishakti Jagadamba is called Skandmata. As a symbol, it should be understood here as the auspicious meeting of Shiva and Parvati. To express this, the mother is shown lovingly holding ‘Skanda’ with one hand in her lap. It is worth remembering that it was only after this culmination of Lord Shankar (who is the giver of Sham or peace) and Parvati (the daughter of the mountain or the power ready for change) that the importance of daughter donation, conception etc.
Sanskar (Sam + Kri + Gh) means effort, improvement, this is also experience, this is also the mental attitude and this is also the purification of nature. Even if we say that the word culture is an extension of culture, then there will be no exaggeration. In fact, culture is the basis of human scavenging; So its carrier element is sanskar. In this sequence, in our culture, a special sanskar of every element has been told. From conception till death, every soul continues to be sanskar. Therefore, Parvati is the cultivated power.
Somehow this is the reason that for the purpose of worship, this form is considered very fruitful for getting children. The mantra of meditation of this form is-
“Thronesnagata nityam padmashrit kardvaya.
Shubhdastu Sada Devi Skanda Mata Yashaswini.
Now understand this in symbols: The mother who opens the door of salvation is mounted on a lion and is considered to be the supreme happiness. here the lion
It is a symbol of controlling the inner power. Where is buoyant energy controlled? Controlling it is as difficult as riding a lion. Astu, the mantra for the praise of this form is: “Om Skandamatrai Namah!” It is mentioned in the Purana that Mother Skandmata has four arms. In her two hands, the mother holds ‘lotus-flowers’. ‘Lotus’ is a symbol of culture. Thus, the birth of ‘Skanda’ from the union of Shiva and Shakti and this symbolic representation of the flow of culture and culture from it.
Having sixteen petals (petals) in these lotuses is not just a painter’s imagination. In fact, it indicates the ‘Vishuddhi-chakra’ for Shakta-seekers. The Vishuddhi-chakra is the center of sound and it is not a mere coincidence that the sixteen petals express the sixteen vowels of Sanskrit. Not only this, it is also a system to represent those sixteen powerful arts (qualities) in symbols by which one attains the height of human consciousness. From the point of view of the seeker, now his sadhana is situated on the ‘Vishuddhi-chakra’ whose root place is the throat. This chakra, located just behind the throat in the grava plexus, is located near the thyroid gland. In this Vishuddhi, ‘V’ means special and ‘Shuddhi’ means to remove residual. The color of Vishuddhi is purple, which is also the color of Shiva’s throat. Is it just that Adiyogi, Neelkanth, Vishkanth Shiva are considered as the greatest seeker of ‘Vishuddhi-Chakra’?
Above we have seen that today on the fifth day of sadhna the seeker is on this chakra i.e. at the fifth level. Below this is the Anahata Chakra at the fourth level and the Agya Chakra just above it. Curious readers should know that most of the writers, poets, painters, sculptors etc. are in the fourth chakra or the anahata chakra (the circle of emotions).
There is such an assurance that after coming to the Vishuddhi Chakra, the seeker starts to understand ‘Tantra-science’ and ‘Shiva’ is the greatest scholar of Tantra. This chakra is actually a filter through which many poisons of ignorance and delusion are filtered out. The practice of this chakra is called ‘Nada Yoga’. Its result is in the spiritual practice of the word and in the attainment of knowledge, within which the qualities of honesty and fearlessness etc. Further, this Vishuddhi chakra, together with the obligatory, forms the ‘Vigyanamaya Kosha’. to call the words Brahman
In fact, this is the meaning.
It is important to note that Brahmaswaroop words emanate from the throat and see that in spiritual practice its equivalent element has been described as Akash (space), in which all the explosions and all the words are contained. It should also be known that this Vishuddhi Chakra is the starting point of ‘Udana Prana’. Purification of the toxic substances of the body during respiration is the process of this prana. Perhaps the readers will now understand what is the symbolic meaning of Shiva drinking gargle and holding it in the throat and purifying it.
Therefore, in practical terms also the Vishuddhi Chakra is very important for word-seekers. It is an empirical fact that blockages in this chakra lead to feelings of anxiety, lack of independence, suffocation, etc. Also, throat problems, speech impediments, etc. may have to be faced.
Another symbolic explanation of this cultivation process may be – this purification is a varnya not only at the physical level, but also at the level of the mind and spirit. In this great season of life, we have to ‘swallow’ adversities, problems and tragic experiences like Shiva. After this, we have to purify and purify them with the fire of their knowledge (contemplation, contemplation, persuasion with word-energy). This is the real purification. This is the secret of the cultivation of the Vishuddhi Chakra.
