Are you pregnant?
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. In order to ensure a safe child birth, offer prayers during
pregnancy to seek the blessings of the Goddess Garbarakshambigai.
The Goddess Garbarakshambigai is seated in the Grabarakshakambigai temple. The
temple is situated in Thirukarukaavur, 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 child births and blesses with healthy
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.
Infact, the inhabitants of the village Thiukarukavur, 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
Offering puja at the temple
Pregnant women have to offer a puja at the temple to pray for easy child birth 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 everyday. At the time of labour too it should be applied over the abdomen to ease labour pains and make the
passage for the baby to the outside world safe.
Apart from applying castor oil, the women are also encouraged if time permits, to
