Sree bagalamukhidevi Temple
Sree Bagalamukhi Devi (Peetambara) temple is rarely found in India. Sree Suryamangalam Advaitha Veda Vidhya Peetam took a decision to build a temple for Sree Bagalamukhi Devi for the first time in South India at Kallidaikurichi, Papankulam Village in Tirunelveli District in Tamilnadu. His Holiness Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetathipathi Jagadguru Poojyasri Sri Sri Jayendra Saraswathi Sankaracharya Swamiji blessed and laid the foundation stone for the construction work of the temple.
Located at Virugambakkam in Chennai, Sree Suryamangalam Advaitha Veda Vidhyaa Peetam is doing dedicated service for the past Twenty-five (25) years to the devotees by way of astrological predictions, Parihara Pooja (remedial measures), Thaanthric Pooja, Homam, Veda Mantra Yaaga etc. for the purpose of getting rid of the hardships and achieving goals. Sree Bagalamukhi Devi Yaagaagni taken from Arani is kept intact here for the past Nineteen (19) years and the chanting of Sree Bagalamukhi Devi Mantra Aahuthi has crossed over one crore.
As per the direction of Sri Mahadevi in Deva Prashnam and with the blessings of Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam, Sree Suryamangalam Advaitha Veda Vidhya Peetam has decided to build a Maha Temple with Raja Gopuram for Sree Bagalamukhi Devi in Kallidaikurichi, Papankulam Village. Separate sanctum sanctorum (Garbha Gruha) will be built for the main deity Sree Bagalamukhi Devi and sub deities viz., Sri Uchchishta Ganapathy, Sri Uma Maheswaran, Sri Prathyangira Devi, Navagraha and Naga Devatha for the purpose of consecration and worship.
With a view to outlive the natural calamities and hardships of any bad phase in Kaliyuga and to last for many a century without wear and tear, the sanctum sanctorum and outer halls (Mukha Mandapam) are to be built by rock stone and as such it is estimated that the expenditure for this utilitarian work will be several crores of rupees. All devotees are solicited for extending their co-operation and valuable suggestions and liberal financial contribution to complete the construction work of the temple inclusive of consecration and Kumbhabhishekam without any delay.
Sre Suryamangalam Bagalamukhi Devi Temple is the only temple where the Chathurbahu Vigraham (Four handed idol), in accordance with the Dhyana Sasthra Vidhi, is consecrated and worshipped in the world. Here, on the auspicious days of Amavasai (New Moon Day) and Pournami (Full Moon Day) Sree Bagalamukhi Devi Yaaga is conducted in the august presence of Sree Bagalamukhi Devi, the omnipotent, Mother Goddess of the Universe who is worshiped by all the deities
The Yaagas are performed in the Sree Suryamangalam Advaitha Veda Vidhyaa Peetam, as per the Thaantric Vidhi and the Mantras prescribed for each Yaaga. They are chanted 10,000 (Ten Thousand) times each along with Homam. All devotees taking part in the Yaagas, with a view to fulfilling their wants are provided a chance for dedicating their prayer (Sankalpam) to the Yaagaagni to propriate the Gods. This custom which is seen very rarely in performing Yaagas is being conducted according to the Thaantric Vidhi - unique in this temple.
