Neelpatakha Devi is a purifying Goddess. She shows us how to magically and alchemically work with the poisons of existence.
This ritual day of the 11th Moon face is known as Ekadashi.
Ek means one and Dashi is 10.
We will undertake the Yogic ritual work of evoking the purifying blue Goddess who rules the 11th Moon.
Her name is Neelpatakha.
She be the goddess of purification and the colour blue. Neel in her name literally means blue.
Patakh means a flag of victory. Her victory is the purification of the sacred heart.
Patakh also means explosion, indeed Neelpatakha Devi is a sky blue explosion of the elixir of purified love.
Centre of Psychic Sound
In this ritual, we will work with the Mudra’s of the throat Chakra.
Some of these Mudra’s are actions that involve the tongue as a means of access the area of psychic space in the throat Chakra.
Neelpatakha is the blue Goddess of the throat Chakra.
She be the Devi of purifying our poisons,
and alchemically giving us the healing elixir.
It is of note to consider that when Shiva drank the cosmic poison known as Halahal, he turned blue.
His throat Chakra awakened as he drank and alchemically took the poison that separates head and heart.
The throat Chakra resonates at the blue frequency and is called Vishudh which means pure and expansive.
When Shiva struggled to handle the poison, he was taken to the mothers heaking breast.
Neelpatakha is the blue Goddess of the throat Chakra. She be the Devi of purifying our poisons and alchemically giving us the healing elixir of love. Her love is a purifying salve for the sacred heart.
The 11th Moon is connected to the 11th Astrological house which is the house of abundance, wealth and things of value. This is the elixir and receiving the beauty of love and life.
The journey to the elixir can indeed go through the journey of poison and healing. Neelpatakha is ritually evoked to assist the Yogin on the 11th lunar day upon the journey through the poisons of existence.
We also find that Vishnu who is the lord of the heart is worshiped on this day by the Vaishnavs.
Ish in the name of Vishnu’s name means love. Vishnu represents the Elixir of love.
Ekadashi in the Yogic wisdom tradition is a day of fasting and purification. Multitudes of devotees fast on this day all across India.
The Tantric wisdom tells us that the sway of the Moon on the 11th day disturbs the elements of the body and therefore it is a time to abstain from excessive eating, fasting is recommended or the taking of very basic foods.
The 11th Moon is a time for intensive Tantric practices
Neelpatakha is a Goddess of Tapasya. Tapasya is the effort to focus our life force.
Tapasya is the beat of the heart unto the unification of love.
In Tantric practices Tapasya can involve study of our energies by a process of renunciation, restraint, resolve, fasting, celibacy and application of Mudra.
In Tantric’s terms, these are methods and means to get to know the inner energetic movements of our cosmos.
By getting to know our inner cosmos, we discover both poison and elixir. By going deeper into our inner cosmos, we may find the alchemy of purification.
To the Tantric, purification is the healing of the Sacred Heart.
