Matangi Kavacam

Sri Sri Devi Matangi is popularly referred to as the Chwasa Dyo (छ्वास द्यो).  She represents the power of absolution, the finality. Consequently, She was located at the waste collection sites on street corners and courtyards.  Yes! There is a philosophical underpinning to waste, its collection, the presiding deity and final absolution.

This prayer is the kavaca (armour) of Devi Matangi.
