Hinglaj Mata Jayanti

Goddess Hinglaj Ma is an incarnation of Goddess Shakti and she takes her name from the mountain cave Hinglaj at on the Makran coast in the Lyari district of Balochistan in Pakistan. Hinglaj Mata Jayanti is on March 15, 2018. The popular belief is that when Lord Vishnu cut the body of Goddess Sati – to stop Shiva’s lament after Sati’s death – part of her head fell at Hinglaj or Hingula. Thus this is one among the 51 Shaktipeeths.

It is believed that Hinglaj Mata made her appearance during the 13th day of the Krishna Paksha of Chaitra Month as per traditional calendar followed in North India.

The spot is of great importance to Goddess Shakti worshipers.

Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa – A Simple Thought

Once a sage was lying by the roadside deeply immerged in Samadhi. A thief, while passing by that way, saw him and thought: ‘This fellow here must be a thief. He must have broken into some houses last night and is now sleeping through exhaustion. The police will be very soon here to catch him. So let me escape in time.’ Thus cogitating, he ran away.Soon after, a drunkard came there, and seeing the sage, said, ‘Hallo! you have fallen into the ditch by drinking too much. Eh! I am steadier than yourself and am not going to tumble down.’Last of all there came a sage, and realizing that a great saint was lying in the state of Samadhi, sat down by his side and began to press his holy feet gently. - Our worldly tendencies prevent us from recognizing true holiness and piety.Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa
