    Maa Prathyangira is one aspect of devi, which is worshipped in kerala as Dharma devata in the “Kavu/ temple” and “Shakteya Bhagavati in “Nair” families. The worship of this deity is in the form of pure “Kaula Tantra”.

    The form and mantra are very terrifying with vibrating energy symbols/beeja mantras and it as long tradition starts from Ananda bhairava, Hayagreeva, Dakshina moorthy, Dattatreya, Matsyendranath, Gorakshanath, etc.

    In this temple, this horrific form of Pratyangira is condensed to the yogic form in a meru shreechakra with saptha matrikas (Brahmani, Maheshwari, Kaumari, Vaishnavi, Varahi, Indrani, and Chamunda).

    Daily worship is performed with pure “Kaula” tradition.

    pratyangira devi is one of the female aspects of Goddess Shakti who is known to protect her devotees from the effects of black magic. If black magic can be perceived as a virus which is inflected onto a person to do harm to him then pratyangira devi is the goddess who is the antivirus to kill those effects. The detailed method of worship of pratyangira devi mantra is mentioned in the veda and you can perform the pratyangira homam at the prathyangira devi temple or at your home to get rid of the evil effects.
