Goddess Purnagiri – Maa Purnagiri



Goddess Purnagiri is a manifestation of Mother Goddess Shakti. She is associated with Tantra. As per Hevajra Tantra, Purnagiri is one of the important Peetahs and Mother Goddess is worshipped here as Goddess Purneshwari.

Legend has it that Lord Shiva was carrying the body of his dead wife Sati around the world. There seemed to be no end to Shiva’s anger and grief. This led to an imbalance in the universe. Finally, Lord Vishnu decided to decimate the body of Sati with his Sudhrashana Chakra. He cut the body of Sati into 51 pieces. Her arms and leg fell at Purnagiri and she came to be known as Goddess Purnagiri.

Maa Purnagiri is worshiped for peace, prosperity, protection, good agriculture, healthy children, early cure of diseases and for victory over enemies.
