Don’t take your pregnancy for granted.

Invoke the blessings of the powerful Goddess Garbarakshambigai to ensure protection for the pregnant woman and the unborn baby.

I know how special it is to be pregnant. I also understand that pregnancy can be very stressful as it is the primary responsibility of the expectant mother to protect the tiny, fragile and vulnerable life that is forming in her womb. Though warm and protected, the baby and the mother are subject to several dangers and sometimes even miscarriage. To ensure safe childbirth, offer prayers during pregnancy to seek the blessings of the Goddess Garbarakshambigai.

The Goddess Garbarakshambigai is seated in the Garbarakshambigai temple. The temple is situated in Thirukarukavur, Papanasam Taluk, Tanjore District, TamilNadu. ‘Garba’ means ‘womb’, ‘Raksha’ means ‘to protect’ and ‘Ambigai’ means ‘The Divine Mother’ (incarnation of Parvathi). As the name suggests this temple protects the child in the womb and also keeps the pregnant woman safe. This Divine Goddess is known to ease the pains of labour and it is believed that she assists in easy childbirths and blesses with healthy children.

For centuries thousands of devotees, across the country, especially from South India visit the temple and offer prayers during pregnancy and special pujas to seek the blessings of the Goddess. Most of them have been blessed and have had safe pregnancies, easy labour and healthy children.

The inhabitants of the village Thirukarukavur, where the temple is situated, vouch for the fact, that within living memory, there has been no case of fatality to the mother or child during confinement. “No one in this place has ever had a miscarriage or pregnancy problems. It is at a place like this that one can understand what ‘Divine Presence’ is.” – this is what the inhabitants of the village have to say. Thousands of other pregnant women too, share testimonies of the blessings they have received from Goddess Garbarakshambigai.

You can read the story of Garbarakshambigai Amman and more details of the temple.

Offering puja at the temple:

Pregnant women have to offer a puja at the temple to pray for easy childbirth and protection of the baby growing in their wombs. The prasadam given is castor oil that has been placed at the feet of the Goddess. This castor oil has been charged with mantras and has to be applied in small quantities over the abdomen every day. Earlier it was said that the oil can be applied from the 7th month onward. Nowadays as people want to use it earlier, the temple recommends that it be used from 3rd month onward. At the time of labour, it should be applied over the abdomen to ease labour pains and make the passage for the baby to the outside world safe.

Complete instructions for taking the ghee prasadam can be found here

Apart from applying castor oil, the women are also encouraged if time permits, to chant the following slokams 108 times every day.

Special Puja

A special Pooja and Pushpanjali can be arranged at the Garbharakshambika temple to help overcome problems related to pregnancy and childbirth. Annadanam can also be offered at the temple.
