Decluttering life

This week, I dedicated most of my time in de-cluttering my home. I felt really much much better, when I finally arranged my kitchen, gave it a new and perhaps a better well organized look. This was something that I wanted to do from quiet a long time. But, may be circumstances or may be I being lazy, postponed this for a long time.

 Finally, I decided one thing, everything, every situation good or bad will come and go, and I need to see something better each day when I cook . I want to feel enthusiastic while cooking... after all I don't want a messy kitchen...Most importantly my day starts with kitchen after all... I want my day to look beautiful and feel happier... Thankfully, I did it...

After, I completed de-cluttering kitchen, this automatically made me enthusiastic enough to de-clutter and rearrange all my rooms. Well, I have completed almost all rooms.... only one more room is left and I am dedicated to finish the stuff by this weekend....

Suddenly today, a thought erupted.... had it been that easy to de-clutter emotions.... just let go of all the experiences....good or bad.... but this does not happen that easily.... though I have somehow learnt to give up all the bad and negative feelings.... it is really very difficult to let go the good ones... the ones that made me laugh... the one that made me feel important....

Why I still remember my first school, my friends with whom I am not in touch.... why I tend to remember them.... simply why???? I wish it was as simple as de-cluttering my kitchen and getting rid of all those unused things of past.... and making it simpler and beautiful....

I know I have to be strict with myself, I have to avoid and put a full stop on all those things of past.... all emotional and sentimental feelings that is just left inside me...

"Mantra" - A powerfull & effective prayer.

Maa Mangala

Om Sarva Mangla Mangaley, Shiva Sarvartha Sadhike!
Sarnya Traymbake Gauri Narayani Namostute!!

Maa Mangala is the local goddess in Odisha, she is one form of Durga or Parvati. It is believed that Maa Mangala originated in the epic battle between Maa Durga and Mahisasura. She is mentioned in the Devi - Mahatmya as the twelve forms of Devi Durga. She has more connection found in the Mangala Mahapurana the Odia version that is being sold in pamphlets all over Odisha. It states that Maa Durga is called Mangala because one day during the battle with Mahisasura, she became tired but the demon Mahisasura was full of energy and he dropped her in middle of Ocean. Durga breathed out and gave birth to a baby girl, who immediately grew to yet another goddess the Goddess Mangala. Durga and Mangala both pulled Mahisasura out of ocean and killed her. Because she benefited everyone she was named Mangala (the auspicious one).

Maa Mangala of Kakatpur is also associated with the Goddess Tara who was brought from Srilanka and is believed to be Buddhist goddess by some scholars. Maa Mangala of Kakatpur has a special place in her devotees heart, as she is associated with the Nabakalebar of Lord Shree Jagannath. Nabakalebar or the new look of god which is performed every 12 years, the daitapati and head priest of Lord Shree Jagannath temple, prays to Maa Mangala of  Kakatpur to show him direction to search the sacred trees from which the lords body could be carved. She comes in dream and guides the priest towards the tree and its location.
