“Bommai Golu”- Navarathri

C H A R M of G-O-L-U, the Tamil Navratri festival.

bommai golu navarathri

golu

Golu (Bommai Golu), quite literally, is the festival of dolls. In the 9 days of Navratri, households are decorated with a variety of dolls that are neatly arranged and placed in steps (called padi). The number of steps is usually an odd number—3, 5 or 7—depending on one’s capacity, interest and the number of dolls available. The collection of dolls comprise mostly of idols of different gods, depending on one’s faith and upbringing, along with miniature dolls of birds, animals, people, fruits, vegetables and lots of other everyday objects. What is most interesting is to note the similarities and differences in the collection of dolls across households, across families.

OUR TRADITIONAL DOLLS!
Marrapachhi(wooden Dolls)

Marapachi dolls.
every household follows a particular tradition that has been a trademark for the family since its ancestral days. For instance, at our home, the marapachi bommai is the first doll that is kept to inaugurate Golu.
Marapachi basically comprises of two wooden dolls—one a man, the other a woman, who are decorated with fancy clothing and beads and accessories. It is considered auspicious to start by displaying a traditional marital couple. Of course, this is so because marriage continues to occupy the highest position in the societal ladder.

‘Kalasam’, with its coconut head and a necklace made of mango leaves.

… a kalasam. It consists of a vase, usually made of silver or brass, in which rice, turmeric and tohar dal is put, along with a one-rupee coin. The kalasam is complete once it’s headed with a coconut and mango leaves are stuck around the mouth of the vase.
Significantly, the patriarchal set-up is manifested and perpetuated by carrying these traditions forward, wherein the husband’s familial lineage is ensured a continuum.
Again, objects of significance and high auspicious value like rice and turmeric are traditionally associated with a married woman, called a ‘sumangli’ and granted an extremely respectable position.

A mini teppakulam (meaning pond) re-created using mud and water, with coriander, fenugreek (methi) and mustard seeds sprinkled on top. In a span of ten days, the plants shoot up to a height of 2 feet.

Stories are narrated of each bommai(doll), I wonder if people of my generation are even aware of them.
“There’s a lesson to learn from each doll…For one, who listens patiently.”

…..That’s ’Golu’ at my residence….(3-steps)

what Golu means, its significance, why we take the pains of decorating the house with dolls and idols. There is an explanation for every step during nine days, the first three are devoted to Shakti (Durga, Kali, Ambal), the next three to Lakshmi (wealth) and the last three to Saraswati (education). It is the amalgamation of all these three that brings prosperity…..BOMMAI(toys) GOLU(arranged in steps)….

Kushmanda is the form of Durga worshipped on the second day of Navratri. As per mythology, she is believed to be the creator of the entire world and all through laughter! The green depicts the rich vegetation and plant cover which the Goddess bestowed on Earth.
Day 3, Grey:
The Skandamata form of Durga Ma, who is believed to be the one who demolished the demons, is worshipped on Day third. With little Karthik, her son, in her arms, the grey symbolises the strength yet vulnerability of a mother. She can become a mighty storm cloud to protect her children, if need be!
Day 4, Orange:
This is the day when Durga Puja kicks off with full fervour in West Bengal and several other parts of India. Shashti is the start of four days of festivities for Bengalis the world over. The Katyayani form of Ma Durga is worshipped today. The story goes that a sage named Kata wished to have the Goddess in the form of his own daughter. She was born to him dressed in orange – the colour of courage.
Day 5, White:
On Saptami, the Kaalratri form of Durga Ma is worshipped. She is the protector from all sorts of trouble and is said to bring freedom to devotees. The white embodies prayer and protection, which the Goddess always extends to worshippers.
Day 6, Red:
On the sixth day of Navratri, Shailaputri Maa is worshipped, and her idol is donned with a bright red color saree. She is the first form of Goddess Durga – the daughter of the mountains. On this day, the Ghatsthapana or the installation of earthen pot is also done. To kickstart the festivity, the colour is red, depicting action, vigour and warmth. !
Day 7, Royal Blue:
The seventh form of Goddess Durga is Bharamacharini or the epitome of power, prosperity and grace. The colour of the day is royal blue like the peacock, symbolizing a sense of calm which is quietly powerful.
Day 8, Pink:
On Ashtami, Maha Gauri is worshipped as the symbol of forgiveness and mercy. She destroys all the sins of time. Hence the pink, denoting hope and fresh beginnings.
Day 9, Sky Blue/Purple:
On the last day of Navratri, the Siddidatri form of the Goddess is worshipped. Maha Navami Puja as well as Kanya Puja is performed on this day. The blue synmbolises a crisp, clear sky that has healing powers. It also stands for the wonder of nature, which all of must endeavour to incorporate in life.
Now that you know the Navratri days colours for nine days, get started already. This is the festival of new beginnings, of hope, faith and love !


Entertaining OUR SPECIAL GODDESS…..Dance!

Garba is a form of dance derived from Sanskrit term Garbha (“womb”).It means Deep (“a small earthenware lamp”). Traditionally, the dance is performed around a clay lantern with a light inside, called a Garbha Deep (“womb lamp”). This lantern represents life, and the fetus in the womb in particular. The dancers thus honor Durga, the feminine form of divinity. Garba is performed in a circle as a symbol of the Hindu view of time. As the cycle of time revolves, from birth, to life, to death and again to rebirth, the only thing that is constant is the Goddess, that one unmoving symbol in the midst of all of this unending and infinite movement. Garba is danced around this symbol to honor the fact that all humans have the Divine energy of Devi within them. Garba is now appreciated worldwide.

Watch and enjoy GARBO, entertaining the GODDESS…

Sri Mata(mother). Sri represents the highest form of motherhood. Lalitambika has the capacity to remove sorrows and miseries of Her children(living beings). She is the Creator, sustainer and also the dissolver. Samsara is called an ocean,difficult to swim against. These currents is the product of sense organs. These sense organs in turn influence the mind causing desires. ‘SriSaktimahimaStotram’ verses in Her praise starts with complete surrender by Durvasa *”Oh! Mata! The Supreme compassionate! I had born to a number of mothers. In future also, I may be born to a number of mothers. My mothers are countless, as I had different mothers for my different births. I am so scared to be born again and to undergo the associated sufferings.
Oh! Mata! I am surrendering to you. Please give me relief from my future births.”

Sri, denotes greatness.

Beautiful ‘SRI’

कां सोस्मितां हिरण्यप्राकारामार्द्रां ज्वलन्तीं तृप्तां तर्पयन्तीम् ।
पद्मे स्थितां पद्मवर्णां तामिहोपह्वये श्रियम् ॥ ४ ॥
…welcome the pleasantly smiling, the kind-hearted Sri who is of the nature of Brahman; glowing like burnished gold; of beautiful lotus-complexion; and, seated on lotus. She is easily pleased; and, she readily fulfils the desires of her devotees.
The devotee is preparing to welcome Sri.

The mantra, refers to Sri’s association with gold (hiranya prákárám) and the lotus (Padme sthitám padma-varnám). Sri is the bright, joyful consciousness residing in the heart-lotus (hrudaya-kamala) of all beings.

* Lakshmi’s association with gold that shines signifies her purity (pavitram vai hiranyam) and her brilliance.
* Padma, the lotus, is the primary symbol h of Sri. Padma symbolizes several adorable virtues: purity, beauty, the very essence of life, spiritual power, fertility and growth… auspiciousness. Sri is Padmini ( holding a lotus)pushkarini (pushkara means lotus). Her complexion glows like lotus (padma-varna).
‘Kam’ in the shlokas has special mention. – Ka, indicates the form-less Brahman (ka iti Brahmano naama), suggesting SRI is indeed the principle (tattva) that is beyond intellect and is at the root of all existence.
-Ka is also the first letter in the fifteen-lettered (pancha-dashi) mantra of the Sri Vidya tradition. It means the principle from which everything arises; for illumination (Kan dipatu) or the principle of consciousness (buddhi) in beings; and, also for the symbol of Self.
-The fifteen lettered (panch-dasha-akshari) mantra i the verbal form of the Devi. But, it is implicit or hidden. when the sixteenth syllable ‘Shrim’ is included; the mantra becomes explicit. Shrim is regarded the own form of the Mother Goddess.. celebrated as Sri-vidya. .
– She manifests the un-manifest… Prakrti.
-The auspicious Sri (Shrim) is Saguna Brahman, the absolute principle.
* The term ‘ardra’ (wet/moist) followed by jwalantim, indicates the flowing grace; the easily-moved, kind and considerate nature of Sri Devi who is the very embodiment of compassion ( Daya-shataka), jwalantim, the radiant nature of Sri who resides as the inner light (jyothi swarupam) at the core of the consciousness of all beings (mula-prakrti). She is the inner energy sparkling (tasya bhasa sarva idam vibhati).
…the spontaneous flow of Devils grace, compassion (ardra) enlightens (jwalantim) the consciousness of the devotees. .
* Dhyana-sloka of the mantra describes Sri as the bright, beautiful goddess of golden complexion; her face aglow with tender smile; seated on a lotus; and holding a book, a parrot that speaks; she is goddess of speech (vac–rupa-sri) and learning(vidya-rupa-sri)
*Om namo sarasvata-siddhi swarupini * (the attainment of true knowledge)

Sri pancham
Sri Puram (place She dwells),
Sri Chakra (place with guards), Sri Vidya (the ritual worship),
Sri Suktam ( in praise of Her)
Sri Guru (spiritual teacher). .
Sri means Veda-s, originated from Brahman. Lalitambigai is the Brahman.
By repetition of Namasmarnam, lies Moksha in Kaliyuga.
-To a thousand names of Vishnu a single name of Shiva is preferred.
-To a thousand names of Shiva a single name of Devi preferred .
The Divine Mother(Kundalini) is sleeping/dormant within jivas – the All-merciful, all-powerful, omnipresent sum total of the energy in the Universe.
-Every manifestation of power in the universe is Mother. She is Life, Intelligence, Love. in the universe, yet separate from it. She is time, space and causation…Brahman which depicts the conditioned and the unconditioned nature.
“The Goddess is the great Sakti. She is Maya, producing the samsara. As the Lord of Maya she is Mahamaya. Devi is avidya as she binds, and vidya as she liberates and destroys the samsara. She is praktri. Even before creation, she is Adya Sakti. Devi is the Vacaka Sakti, the manifestation of Cit in Praktri, and the Vicya Sakti or Cit itself.”

“O Goddess, who removes the suffering of Your supplicants, be gracious!
Be gracious, O Mother of the whole world!
Be gracious, O Queen of the universe; Safeguard the universe!
You, O Goddess, are Queen of all that is movable and unmovable!
You alone has become the support of the world,
Because You do subsist in the form of Earth!
By You, who exists in the form of water, all this universe is filled,
O You inviolable in Your valor; You are the Gem of the universe,
You are Illusion sublime! All this world has been bewitched, O Goddess;
You indeed when attained,
Are the cause of the final emancipation from existence on Earth!…
O Goddess, be gracious!
Protect us wholly from fear of our foes perpetually,
As You have at this very time saved us promptly by the slaughter of the demons!
And You bring quickly to rest the sins of all the worlds,
And the great calamities which have sprung, from the maturing of portents!
To us who are prostrate be You gracious,
O Goddess, who takes away affliction from the universe!
O You worthy of praise from the dwellers of the three worlds,
Bestow Your boons on this world!
