SHRI SHOOLINI BHADRAKALI MEPPAD SHAKTI PEEDOM
Welcome to our website of Meppad Madom, the ancient Gupta Peeth which pursues Shakta Sampradaya of Yoga Nagakula from Yogini Jnananetra Amba and Siddha Yogeeshwara Kumaras is propagated by Arjuna Parashrayar / Nadanta Ananda Nathar. The mighty Odamgara and Vayumkulagarathu Mana Tradition amalgamated with Meppad Madom's heritage, the ancestral and spiritual lineage of Swami Nadanta. Meppad Madom had adopted Brahmin boys periodically to retain the tradition and the most recent foster child was from Kulamgara Mana.
Meppad Tradition is the atavistic school of Shaktism, elicted from Shakta Dharma where Krama Shaktism is extensively trained. Meppad Tradition is embedded in Atharva Veda, ascribed to Pippalada Sakha of Vedic Scholars. Atharva Veda is also deemed as Brahma Veda (the Knowledge of the Brahmans/ the Veda of the Sacred Spells), Bhaishajya Veda (Therapeutic Knowledge) and Kshatra Veda (the Veda of the Kshatriyas/ the Science of the Warrior Class). Atharvans invoke Bhairavi, the goddess of Nitya Laya ( Pralaya/ Dissolution ) who bears the aspects of Agni, Vidyuth and Surya in their Shakti Samaradhana. She personifies Tapas and Tejas, that blaze away the imperfections in one's psyche.
REGALITY OF THE LOCALE AND MYSTIC CHRONICLES:
The historical Princess of Ayodhya , who commenced her journey from Ramghat in Ujjain to Mokshaka Parvata in Kannur, North Kerala via Gujarat and Konkan Coastal conveyed Goddess Vindhyavasini Shooilini. When Rajmata's son ascended the throne with the blessings of Lord Dattatreya and Bhargva Rama, she relinquished her material life to metamorphose into Yogini Jnananetra Amba. The aformentioned Yogini is the pioneer of all Somavamshi Royal Families of Kerala, Surya Vamshi kings and Meppad Tradition.
After ages, two Suryavamshi Nagakula warrior brothers from the lineage of Muchukunda, who had kinship with Rajmata decamped in quest of her heritage. The commencement of their journey was from the Himalayas, which progressed towards Pashupati Nath, Nilachal Hills and the Vindhya Range. They arrived in Sadrai Giri, meditated there and entered Kerala through Vijaya Giri, hence raised a hermitage in Kannavam forest. Afterwards these two brothers revered as Siddha Yogeeshwara Kumaras, established Prarastra Kingdom/Prattara Swaroopam of Veera Kerala Varma Pazhassi Raja (Kottayam Swaroopam) in North Kerala.
The Meppad Tradition of Sri Chakra Puja (one of the ancient sampradayas) followed by the eminent kings and ruling royal families of Kerala is now confined into Meppad Madom. Sri Chakra Puja is performed during morning for Mahalakshmi and Tripurasundari as Pradana Devatas in their Atmavidya Sadhana.
The Cheraman Perumal, the founder of Kulashekara dynasty Sri Kulshekara Perumal and Ravi Varma practiced Sri Chakra Puja vidhanam for Anuttara Mahalakshmi, residing the Vakshasthala of Srinivasa. Due to the attainment of boundless blessings from Srinivasa, He was transfigured as the Kulashekara Pathi of Tirumalai Balaji temple in Tirupathi Devasthana.
Siddha Yogeeshwara Kumaras, the Adi Gurus of Meppad Tradition initiated Sri Vidya with Siddha Maharatha Krama into the palace of Kolathiri, thus entitled as Kolathiri Raja Gurus. They elaborated Poornadu Swaroopam by constructing a fort in Purali Hills. The Chamundi Kottam temple as well as the Aana Kulam (Elephant Pond) in Valapattanam Fort have an interconnection with Siddha Yogeeshwara Kumaras as they revealed their mystical powers around the locale.
Yoga Nagakula revered Subrahmanya Swami as Kula Guru and Sri Shastha as Kula Nayaka. The Kula Devatas, Sri Porkali Shoolini and Bhadrakali are adored in one vigraha known as Mukura Prastaram . Srividya Shakta Adhistana Devatha, Bhuvaneshwari is venerated inside the ancestral home, where Devi is visualised on Sri Yantra (Meru) as Bala and Bhadrakali . Porkali, Lord Vishnu and Siddha Lakshmi are worshipped in Thekkini/ Kalari, in Vadakkini and in the Dakshina Padanjitta respectively. In the Nilavara (secret chamber) beneath, Patala Kubji is devoted in a curved granite lamp where sword is kept in front of Bhadrakali/ Kubji Pratyangira. She is evoked with special drum beats (Para Chanda), Kali mudra and offer Bali for victory. In the South - West part, there is a Mantrika Kalari (Mantra Shala) where Goddess of War and Medicine - Shoolini Bhadrakali, Mantra Moorthies and Matrukas are inducted.
