The Varahi, one of 8 Matrikas (Divine Mothers), is boar headed and comes holding a  ‘hal’(plough) and ‘musal’(pestle). She represents the new moon, a time to set new intentions.

Earth is feminine and Varahi is the Goddess of Earth, all that is under and grows on top of the earth belongs to her. We are honouring the food that gets put on our tables by trying to understand where it comes from. 

We live on a farm and last year the one aspect that moved us from suspension was growing the vegetable garden. We used the ‘hal’ and ground our own selves with the ‘musal’. The joy was unparalleled and emerged in the form of our ‘Farmerette’.

Matrikas can also be thought of as Mother Goddess that is the oldest known form of worship in India and in many other parts of the world. Varaha and Varahi are both boar headed manifestations but the Vishnu avatar stories are far more prevalent and with more circulation that its female version.

Here we celebrate the female avatar of this benevolent manifestation.
