Varuni, also known as Jaladevi, is the consort of Lord Varuna, and she is the goddess of wine. In some Hindu temple sculptures, Varuni is found along with Varuna. She is described in the Vedas and Hindu Sacred texts. She is also considered as an incarnation of Mata Lakshmi.
According to the legend, Varuni was formed during the churning of the divine ocean, and got married to Varuna. She is considered as a Yogini. She resides in the Varuna Loka, which is situated in the bottom of the ocean. Both of them are controlled by Lord Indra Bhagawan.
Varuni acts as a dutiful wife for her husband Lord Varuna, and obeys his commands, and gives more respect to him. It is always suggested to worship her along with Lord Varuna, in order to get good health, wealth and can attain all sorts of prosperities in our life. Generally she is worshipped along with Varuna for getting relieved from water related diseases like cough, cold, diabetes, kidney and lung diseases. She also helps us to get proper rain during drought times.
There is one Varuna Dev temple in Karachi at Pakistan, and it is considered as the only temple dedicated to Lord Varuna and Mata Varuni Devi. Since, it is difficult to visit Pakistan and to worship the deities, it is suggested to worship the divine couples by placing their picture in our puja room, and can chant the following mantras:
- Om Jaladevara Namaha, Om Sri Varunadevaya Namaha
- Om Jaldeviyay Namaha, Om Varuniye Namaha
- Om Sri Indra Bhagawane Namaha
Let us worship the divine father and mother and be blessed.
“OM SRI VARUNA DEVARE NAMAHA”
“OM MATA VARUNIYE NAMAHA”
“OM NAMO NARAYANAYA NAMAHA”
