আহা মা কামাখ্যা দেৱী
হৃদয় মন্দিৰে হে মা
প্ৰেম ফুলেন আঁজলে
Come, Mama Kamakhya!
In the temple of my heart, O Mama,
I will worship you with flowers of love!
— traditional women’s folk song (naam), Kamakhya
Our mission is to nurture and inspire the temple within, and to encourage everyone to build temples to the Divine Mother in their own hearts and homes. But we often get the question: “How do I create an altar?”
There are many, many right ways to build an altar. The only real requirement is that it should inspire you. Altars are a reflection of our spiritual selves, and each one is unique, just as every temple is unique, and every person is unique. The best way to learn how to build an altar is to see the altars that many others have created.
In addition to our virtual temple altars, we have created a virtual community altar by bringing together many home altars from around the world, dedicated to the many forms of the Divine Mother and Her family. These photos have been shared by our friends and fellow devotees. We hope you find them as inspiring as we do!
