Celebration of the goddess and the Mother Earth who bleeds!
The Assamese term ‘ambubosi’ or ‘ambubachi’ had its origin from a similar Sanskrit word ‘ambuvaci’. It literally translates to the onward journey of water bodies that refer to the engorgement of water with the commencement of the monsoon.
However, the fêted Ambubachi mela is mostly known for the festivity of goddess Kamakhya and Mother Earth’s menstruation cycle. Assam’s Kamakhya temple has always been the main shrine of this festival as it is one of the 51 Shakti Peethas and has the deity’s yoni or genitals.
The Mother’s energy in and around the Kamakhya temple remains potent, wild, palpable, and it runs among those throngs of worshipers congregated outside her doors.
Along with the followers, India Imprints too bows before the Mother Goddess expressing our gratitude. On this auspicious occasion, we hope to free ourselves from illusions like ego and let emanate confidence that the Mother radiates through us.
