Sarvamaṅgalā literally means ‘one who brings auspiciousness to everybody’.

Sarvamaṅgalā is one of the aspects of the Devī or Divine Mother. She is described as of golden hue and is decorated richly with splendid ornaments. In her four hands, she holds a rosary, a spear, a water-pot and the last hand showing the varadamudrā.[1] She may be seated on a lotus or a lion.


  1. Varadamudrā means hand pose of bestowal of boons.
