Akhilandeswari  Mathruka pushpa mala

(The garland of prayers to Mother of the entire world)

        Translated by

    P.R.Ramachander

 

        ( This rare prayer has been taken from a book called “Ananda Sagaram edited by Dr.Najan who is a great Sri Vidhya upasaka.  He mentions that this was written by Adhi Sankara. But this is not found in the approved complete list of works of Adhi Sankara. Another peculiarity of this stotra is that it has 53 verses which correspond to the 53 alphabets and respective verse containing mostly words starting with that alphabet. To my limited knowledge , Adhi Sankara has never tried this in any of his stotras.

 

   Akhilandeswari has a separate Sannidi in the Jambukeswarar temple at Thiruvanaikovil  very near Trichinopoly of Tamil nadu. The beauty of the statue and the merciful and concerned look of the eyes of the Goddess are well known. Many devotees believe that her look was initially very fierce and was converted to the merciful concern by building a temple of Ganapathi (her eldest son) just opposite her. There is also a story that Adhi Sankara who visited this temple drew a Sri Chakra on her ear studs and hung it on her ears.

    The stotra which was available to me was in Tamil script.. So there are more mistakes likely in the transcription.)
