Ashta Matrika Symbolise the Fight against Eight Evil Qualities of Man
The Ashta Matrikas are incarnations of Goddess Shakti and manifested from the male gods to fight demons. Hence they are warrior deities having auspicious qualities. They were created to kill Adhaka whose every drop of blood gave birth to a new demon. The eight forms of Mother Shakti or warrior goddesses were created by Lord Shiva to fight demons. They guard the eight cardinal directions of the universe, they protect and defend evil from all sides with great valor and ferocity. They also represent man’s inner evil or negative qualities that need to be rooted out for attaining enlightenment and moksha.
The Ashta Matrika portray an interesting symbolism. Lord Shiva represents vidya or knowledge. The demon Andakasura represents avidya or ignorance. The more vidya becomes powerful, avidya also arises and multiplies. This is denoted by the massive increase in the demon and other asuras. The eight evil qualities like lobha (greed), moha (illusion), madha (pride), krodha (anger), paisunya (wicked), matsarya (miserly), kama (lust), and asuya (jealousy) need to be overcome and brought under the control of vidya. Only then Andaka can be defeated and kept under restraint. According to Varaha Purana, the Matrikas are atma vidyas battling against Andhakasura, who represents evil or darkness.
Ashta Matrika Homam will be performed on Durgashtami which falls every month on the eighth day of Shukla Paksha. On this day, Goddess Durga, a creation of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva, is invoked. She also represents the avatar of Goddess Shakti from whom the Ashta Matrikas emerged. It’s very auspicious to invoke the goddesses on this day which also coincides with Radhashtami, the appearance day of Radha, the childhood mate of Lord Krishna, an avatar of Goddess Lakshmi. Fasting and performing rituals on the day pleases the mighty female power that helps to get rid of the bad karmas of past lives. The goddess improves love and relationships, self-confidence, and courage. Rituals and fasts in Her name protect from disease and bring health and prosperity. It makes sure you get divine protection, success, prosperity, happiness, and peace. Fasting on Durgashtami, as per the rules of the scriptures, bestows one with great results by making it highly popular for others to follow.
