Kuldevata of Naik Maratha, Gomantak Maratha and Nutan Maratha

Kuldevata of Konkanastha Maratha Samaj
(कुलदेवता हा श्रद्धेचा भाग आहे. आपल्या समाजाच्या फार कमी लोकांनी स्वतः मंदिरे उभारली. जी काही थोडी फार मंदिरे आपल्या समाजाच्या लोकांनी उभारली आहेत त्याला कुलदेवता म्हणता येईल. कुलदेवता म्हणजे परिवाराचा देव. उदा. परुळेकर कुटुंबियांनी एकत्र येऊन एक छोटंसं मंदिर मठ गावात उभ केल आहे. तसेच परुळे गावातही एक मंदिर परुळेकर कुटुंबियांनी उभ केल आहे ज्याची पूजा अर्चना स्वतः परुळेकर करतात त्याला कुलदेवता म्हणता येईल. आपल्या समाजाचे काही लोक आपल्या मूळ गावच्या ग्रामदेवतेलाच कुलदेवता मानतात. तर काही मूळ गोत्राच्या देवतेला कुलदेवता मानतात. तसेच मूळ सारस्वतांच्या कुलदेवतेला आपले काही समाजबांधव कुलदेवता मानतात.  )

The concept of Kuladevatas

For purposes of worship the Hindu has three principal deities.The first is the Gramadevata (the god of the village or town), the second the Kuladevata (deity of his family or Gotra), and the third the Ishtadevata (personal deity). Of these the first two are fixed for him at birth and the third he selects for himself from the many deities of the Hindu pantheon.

Worship of the Gramadevata is generally performed in the temple of the village or the town in which the person resides. One goes to the temple on occasions, where he offers prayers alongwith flowers or fruits. Once or twice a year a festival is held in honor of the Gramadevata in which all the villagers take part and on this occasion there are the usual pageants and processions, dances and music. Worship of the Kuladevata is generally performed daily in the family home shrine dedicated to this deity.

Ankita said...

sir
was there seriously an opposition just for the creation of this blog? that is surprising. this blog is just a step to unite our people. :)

Waman Parulekar said...

Ankita this is not new for me. Some people don't want to see our unity. They know that, we hv talent and we can emerge as powerful community if we comes together. That is the real problem.

Another reason, we hv long list of successful persons. Few years back when I am working on wiki page of Gomantak maratha. Many people opposed me when I hv included Mangeshkars name in our list. They told me that, Mangeshkars were brahmin. I replied them If u think Mangeshkars were brahmin then accept all ther relatives and recognize them as brahmin. They refused my idea. It proves that they only want popular and eminent persons from our community.

एकंदरीत काही लोक हे विरोध करतच राहतील. आपल्याला आपली प्रगती करायची आहे आणि त्यासाठी एकी महत्वाची आहे. आपल्या भविष्यासाठी आपण हे प्रयत्न करतोय.

tc good night
