#5 #PanajiTales Mahalakshmi at Taleigao. 200+ year old Mahalakshmi temple at Panaji was originally located in Taleigao & my search for it led me to this temple. Is it the original temple? I don't know but the probability is high.

DELHI WE HARDLY KNOW - a thread based on the book ' Delhi - City of Yoginis (amzn.to/2kR2bXS) '. Read it 10 years ago and again now. Sharing some snippets. You can read my earlier review here - anureviews.com/delhi-city-of-…

Delhi was once called Yoginipur, it is one of the 11 names of the city mentioned in scriptures. One Yogini temple survives in the city - Yogmaya Temple behind Qutub Minar - inditales.com/ancient-yogmay… Aurganzeb could not destroy it, he tried though.

There were two Devi temples in Purana Qila Complex - one dedicated to Kunti - the mother of Pandavas & second to Shitala Mata. Kunti Murti was stolen & Shitala Mata Temple one was demolished by ASI - inditales.com/in-and-around-…

Started reading Srimad Devi Bhagwat Mahapuran (amzn.to/2NFU3Jh) - a 2 volume Granth of roughly 1000 pages each. Should be a good 1-2 year project to read it. Will share some snippets as I read. Seeking your blessings. Image
Devi Bhagwat Mahatmay which is actually from Skand Puran talks about the benefits of reading or listening of this Purana for the 4 Varnas - Dwij or Brahmins, dharnipati or kings, vaishya & Shudras as per their Varna dharma.

#devibhagwat Image
Like Ganga among rivers, Shankar among Devas, Ramayan among poems, sun among celestials, moon in pleasure giving things, fame for the wealthy, forgiveness for earth & depth is for ocean, Gayatri among mantras, memory of Hari to rid sins, so is #DeviBhagwat among 18 Puranas. Image
