Goddess Manada – One Of 64 yoginis in Hinduism

Goddess Manada is one of the 64 yoginis in Hinduism. Goddess Manada is also known as Lakshmi, Sri Shanti and Kanti. The 64 yoginis are holy women with yogic powers or female attendants of Shiva or Durga. They are worshipped as Goddesses in Hindu religion.

Goddess Manada Yogini is depicted as standing on a full blown lotus. The yogini is named after qualities like peace, lustre, wealth, and honour. A lotus represents our journey towards spirituality.

The mantra associated with Goddess Manada Yogini is Om Aim Swaha.

Goddess Manada yogini is offered white color flowers and white color bhog (food or naivedya). Lamp for her should be lit using cow ghee. Agarbatti should be of natural white color flowers. Offer white color chandan.
