Salutation Be To You, Maa Nārāyaṇī, Who Have The Form Of Maa Vaiṣṇavī, Holding The Supreme Weapons Of Conch, Discus, Mace, and Bow. Please Bestow Your Grace Upon all!

-The Devi Mahatmya, 11.16

Maa Vaiṣṇavī Is The First Among The Maa SaptaMātṛkās To Emerge From Lord Viṣṇu’s Supreme Form. Maa Vaiṣṇavī Is Depicted Mounting The Fabulous Bird Garuda, And Holding The Weapons Conch, Discus, Mace, Bow, And Sword. Although Maa Vaiṣṇavī Emerges From The Body Of Lord Viṣṇu, She Is The Divine Power Of The Ever-Supreme (Paramā) Divine Mother Of the universe, Operative Through But Not Belonging To Lord Viṣṇu.

Maa Vaiṣṇavī Always Protects the honor, reputation, and prosperity Of Her ardent devotees. May we worship Maa Vaiṣṇavī With sincere devotion.
