|| Shri Marubai Devi Prasanna ||

For generations, Hindus all around the world worship Aadishakti Jagadamba in various forms. Like Shri. Laxmi the Goddess of Wealth, Shri. Saraswati the Goddess of Knowledge, Shri. Tripura Sundari the Goddess of Beauty ruling the Three Worlds, Shri. Durga is the Goddess of Power, the destroyer of all evils and her other form is none other but our Goddess Shri. Marubai, the Ashtabhuja Devi.

In the concrete jungle that modern Mumbai, the financial capital of India has today turned out to, there still exist some landmarks like Matunga’s Shri. Marubai Gaondevi Mandir, a venerable central place of worship open to all religious denominations from all walks of life. Nearly for
more than 300 years the Ashtabhuja Aadimaya Shaktimata Shri. Marubai is being worshiped as Kuladevata (Family deity) or as Gavdevi (Goddess of the village). In Maharashtra there are Three and a Half Shakti-Pithas, Shri. Chaturshringi near Pune, Shri. Bhavanimata, the Kuladevata of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj at Tuljapur, Shri. Mahalaxmi at Kolhapur and Shri. Renukadevi at Mahur. In Mumbai, the famous forms of Goddess known to all are Shri. Mumbadevi whose name is given to Mumbai the city of fortune, Shri. Mahalaxmi, Shri. Prabhadevi, Shri. Shitaladevi and so on. Shri. Marubai has blessed the area since time immemorial and has a known history of more than 3 centuries and is situated at Matunga, known as Marubai Tekdi Gaon in the British era. Matunga was then a small village and Shri. Marubai, the form of Goddess Durga was situated on the small hill (tekdi in Marathi language).

Even though the goddess is a “Swayambhu” (natural formation of the idol) form of Goddess Durga or the Goddess Bhavanimata, still she got the name Marubai or Maruaai because she was the only hope when the village surrounding the hill was stricken by diseases like Smallpox, etc. Marubai or Maruaai means, “Mother who protects her children from Death”. When any human being faces any kind of danger or worry he seeks help of mother. And so the name Maruaai suits the goddess the protector of mankind.
