Goddess Priti

Goddess Priti is the consort of Kamadeva – the Hindu God of Love. Goddess Priti is personification of affection/joy/delight. Kamadev or Manmatha has two consorts Rati and Priti.

The most popular consort of Kamadeva is Rati and most literature associated with the exploits of the God of Love does not mention Priti.
Legend has it that Goddess Priti and Rati helped Goddess Parvati in her attempts to win Shiva as Her husband. Shiva who was deep in meditation after Goddess Sati’s death showed no interest in Goddess Parvati.
Goddess Parvati used clean the cave in which Shiva was meditating. She used bring fresh flowers and fruits hoping that Shiva will be pleased. But all her attempts failed.
Goddess Parvati then takes the help of Goddess Priti who converts the cave into a paradise filled with flowers, butterflies, bees and birds.

Ordinary human love results in misery but Love for God brings blessedness – Mother Sarada Devi

The mantra purifies the body. Man becomes pure by repeating the name of God. So repeat His name always.
You should work, no doubt. Work saves the mind from going astray. But prayer and meditation also are necessary. You must sit for meditation at least once in the morning and once in the evening. That will be like the helm of a boat. When one sits in meditation in the evening, there is self-examination in respect of the work done in the course of the day.
Ordinary human love results in misery. Love for God brings blessedness.
Many take the name of God after receiving blows in life. But he who can offer his mind like a flower at the feet of the Lord right up from childhood is indeed blessed.
