Mother Angali - Siddha Worship Procedure
Part 2 (Part 1)
To learn mathematics, you should consult an expert mathematician. To learn phsics, you should consult an expert physicist.
To learn the secrets of the spiritual world, you should consult the Siddhas.
As mentioned elsewhere, the Sathguru used to meet his sathguru at the Mother Angali temple in Royapuram. He used to circle the Mother's sanctum 1008 times before before meeting with his teacher. The result of such prayer and guru bhakti was Mother Angali's darshan and Her blessings. Thus it is ideal to learn the Mother Angali worship procedure from the Sathguru, Her true devotee, one who has seen Her.
The Sathguru has said, "Namakku ellamey Angaalamma thaan - For us, Mother Angali is Everything." That's true surrender to Mother Angali; when She becomes Everything in a devotee's life and one sees nothing but Mother Angali in Everything, then the devotee has indeed surrendered to the Mother.
How does one refer to the Mother? The Sathguru refers to Her as Angaalamma. Angaalamma literally means Mother Angali. (Angali + amma = Angaalamma. Amma = mother.) So refer to the Mother lovingly as Angalamma or Mother Angali, just like the Sathguru, Her true devotee, does.
The full name of the Nameless Mother is Sri Angala Parameswari. We know this from the Sathguru. While disciples and aspirants refer to Him as Sathguru and Guru Mangala Gandharva, he has referred to himself for decades as Sri Angala Parameswari Adimai (the loving slave of Mother Angali), the name given to him by his Sathguru when the latter commanded him to take on the mantle of Maha Guru Agasthiar's lineage of Sathgurus.
The All Encompassing Mother
Humans want to love and be loved. If you want to learn about love, learn it from Mother Angali, the universal expert in the field of love - not impermanent human love, but eternal, ever growing divine love - the love that conquers all - the love that yields every possible spiritual gift.
If you want love, where else can you get it but from Mother Angali? She's the very definition of love - the love that binds devotee and deity in timeless divine union.
Mother Angali Worship According to the Siddhas
For the sake of Her devotees, Sathguru Venkataraman composed the Sri Angala Parameswari Andhaadhi. In the preface, the Sathguru has said that it was Maha Guru Agasthiar who composed this work from inside him.
Reading these 101 andhaadhi songs with love, singing it with love, thinking about it with love - this is where worship of Mother Angali begins.
The andhaadhi song garland created by that great leader of the Siddhas, Maha Guru Agasthiar, from inside Her true devotee Sathguru Venkataraman, is an excellent instrument for learning about the Mother and worshipping her.
The Sathguru, having been blessed with Her darshan, composed these songs in a state of spiritual ecstasy for the sake of devotess everywhere, as commanded by the Mother. This work is a product of the Mother's boundless grace. Her grace and compassion is in every one of the songs in the andhaadhi song garland.
Every song is a prayer to the Mother who provides all. She's not just a provider of spiritual wealth, but also of material wealth - whatever you want, you may get from Her. By Her grace, every song is a wish fulfiller; every song is imbued with Her divine potency. The wish fulfulling power of every one of these songs is listed in the last few pages of the work.
Her names occur repeatedly in the work - thus reciting it is like reciting Her namavali.
How exactly can one use the andhaadhi song garland in prayer?
The Mother likes it best when a group of people join together and recite or sing the andhaadhi songs. This group recitation is very powerful, say the Siddhas. This is much better than individual recitation of the work.
Gather a group of people and recite it or sing it aloud. This is the best way of using the andhaadhi song garland in prayer. The Mother wants you to form prayer groups that will recite the andhaadhi songs as a group.
When the group recitation is complete, feed the poor and the needy. Think about how a mother feels when her children don't have anything to eat. Now think about how Mother Angali, the very definition of kindness, would feel if Her poor children have nothing to eat. Can a devotee of the kindest Mother of all allow this to happen? Feeding the poor is but a manifestation of Her kindness and thus the perfect finalé for Her worship.
Reciting or singing the andhaadhi song garland while fasting the entire day is a potent vrata pooja practice. You may drink some thulasi water (water in which thulasi leaves have been placed) during this vrata pooja.
Seeing Mother Angali
Clad in green and seated on a throne, the seven tongued jothi flame as Her halo, sporting the most beautiful and unforgettable half smile ever known, the unmatched, all conquering gaze of compassion - that's Mother Angali as She appeared to Her true devotee.
But keep in mind that She's really beyond description. You have to see Her; in fact, everyone must see Her.
How can one see Her? As the Sathguru has said often, chant Her name 130 million times or recite any one of the andhaadhi songs 130 million times and you'll see Her.
But seeing the Mother is one thing; merging with Her is another! So how does one merge with the Mother? By perfect surrender to the Sathguru - that's the way, She says. Follow this injunction of the Mother, your Mother, if you want to merge with Her.

May Mother Angaali, the Most Compassionate Mother, bless us all!
