Vaishno Devi Mandir is one of the holy Hindu temples dedicated to Shakti, located in the hills of Jammu and Kashmir, India. Maa Shakti is the divine force, manifesting to destroy demonic forces and restore balance. She is the mother of goddess , the source of all energy or power .Every Hindu God symbol has power known as Shakti. Lakshmi is the energy of Lord Vishnu. Parvati is the energy of Lord Shiva. Parvati (Shakti ) is also called Devi , Sati, Durga , Kali etc.It is not only a belief but also a strong experience of one and all that the Divine Mother sends a call to her children. And once a person receives it, wherever he is, is bound to visit the Mother to receive Her unbounded love and blessings. It is also a matter of experience by almost all those who visit the Holy Shrine that upon the Call of Mata, a person needs to just take one step and leave the rest to Her and his journey gets completed with Her divine blessings. It is true that not everyone can go for Darshan of Maa Vaishno Devi in Jammu India even he has strong desire to go there. we are blessed that we have Vaishno Devi Mandir close to our heart and in our beautiful neighborhood.
