Sadosh-Matrikas

Hi Alex:

 

I wonder, was my reply to your previous query useful at all?

 

In any event, the answer to your new query is that the Sadosh-

Matrikas are the "Sixteen Mothers" whom some worship during

Deepavali/Diwali Puja.

 

Here is an example, from a Web presentation rather intriguingly

titled, "A SCIENTIFIC VIEW OF THE FEMALE UNIVERSAL ENERGY" (link

given below):

 

SODASAMATRKA PUJANAM (THE WORSHIP OF THE SIXTEEN MOTHERS)

 

The 16 mothers are represented on a platform by 16 small heaps of

rice and a NUTMEG on top. Bowing to the 16 mothers, take rice,

flowers and fragrance (atar) in your hands and say:

 

GOURI PADMA SACI MEDHA SAVITRI VIJAYA JAYA DEVASENA SVADHA

SVAHA MATARO LOKAMATARAH HRSTIH PUSTISTATHA TUSTI ATMANAH-

KULADEVATAH GANESE NADHI KAPUJ YAH URDD HOU PUJ YASCA SODA SAH

 

Gouri, Padma, Saci, Medha, Savitri, Vijaya, Jaya, Devasena, Svadha,

Svaha, Mataro, Lokamatrah, Hrstih, Pustistatha, Tusti, Atmakuladevata

are the sixteen venerable mothers.

 

Take a handful of rice, and pouring it through your fingers on the

red cloth. ... Sprinkle the flowers, rice and fragrance (atar).

[etc .... see full puja instructions at

http://www.swamiram.com/diwali.html]

 

Can anyone add to this?

shoDaShi maatrikaa's -

 

The answer very simply lies in the creation of language it self.

 

As everyone knows all the words are formed with the union of vowels

and consonants. Some words are complete by vowels themselves.

 

Example:

 

maa, aaii, maaii - formed with vowels "m" and "aa", "ii" and all

of them mean Mother.

 

All of the "shabda brahman" is created from these vowels therefore

they are knowk as mothers "matrikaa's".

 

There are "sixteen" maatrikaa's in Sanskrit.

 

a, aa, i. ii. u. uu. e. ai. o, au, am, aH, R^i, RR^I, l^i and L^I.

 

The purpose of gaining their knowledge from a "COMPETENTGURU" is

extremely critical, because without correct pronunciation one can

really understand what words are being produced. The listening party

cannot make sense out of anything what one is trying to say. This

is applicable for "internal" as well as "External" listeners as

well.

 

Example - When an Indian, Chinese, or Japanese speaks English often

Americans cannot understand what they are saying and often leads to

confusion and even misunderstanding.

 

I hope this helps your understanding of shoDaShi (sixteen)

matrikaa's. Reciting them with understanding is fine tuning your

pronunciation.

 

Regards,

 

Dr. Yadu

The complete mantra invoked at time of puNyahavaacan or a wedding

includes a total of 23 and is as follows (sixtee are mentioned in

your post):

 

gaurii padmaa shacii medhaa saavitrii vijayaa jayaa |

devasenaa svadhaa svaahaa maataro lokamaataraH |

dhR^itiH puShTistavaa tuShTiraatnanaH kuladevataa ||

brahmii maaheshvarii caiva kaomaarii vaiShNavii tathaa |

vaaraahii ca tathendraaNii caamuNDaaH sapta maataraH ||

 

Kali devi's ruNDamaalaa consists of 52 ruNda that represents 52

sylebals of the sanskrit varnas.

 

Hope this is helpful.
