Family deity and Guardian deity are the most important deities whom we have to worship in our everyday life. Family deity also called as Kula Deivam belongs to a person’s ancestral god or goddess and we must personally visit and worship our Kula Deivam’s temple and seek his/her blessings at least once in a year. Those who don’t know their Kula Deivam can worship Mata Angala Parameswari at Melmalayanur located at Tamilnadu. And Malayanur Parameswari can be worshipped by everyone as their Ishta Devata. She is the mother goddess, who shows sympathy on us, and reduces our sufferings and brings happiness and prosperity in our life.
Guardian deity also known as Kaval deivam varies from place to place. Generally Lord Ayyanar can be worshipped by the devotees as the Kaval deivam along with their main kaval deivam. Lord Ayyanar protects us from our enemies and come with us in our each and every step during our entire life time. He will be with us during our difficult times, and removes our tears and brings happiness and peacefulness in our life.
Though some people believe that Lord Ayyanar is a demi god, he is considered as a main god by many people, and contains the features of Lord Dharma Sastha, and he is also believed to be a form of Lord Ayyappa. Ayyappa and Ayyanar are the two avatars of Lord Dharma Sastha, who have taken the avatars, in order to lend their helping hands on us, and to protect us from our enemies. They would give boldness, courage, wisdom, enthusiasm and removes the fear in our minds, and support us, and be with us in our day to day life.
Let us worship Mata Angalamman and Lord Ayyanar and be blessed.
