About The Ambubachi Mela
Although the devotees worship Maa Kamakhya throughout the year, generally this place is mostly visited in time of Navaratri, Durga puja and Ambubachi mela. People gathered at these particular times of the year most to have the special blessings of Maa Kamakhya.
The Ambubachi mela is celebrated during the monsoon season every year. The time is especially during the fall of the Assamese month “Ahaar”, around the middle of June. It is believed that the presiding Goddess of the Kamakhya temple, Devi Shakti, Maa Kamakhya, goes
through her annual cycle of menstruation every year. It is also believed that during the monsoon rains, the creative and nurturing power of the ‘menses’ of Mother Earth becomes accessible to the devotees. During the days of menstruation, a red cloth used to cover the ‘stone Yoni’. The cloth is called “Angabastra”.
The temple remains closed for 3 days during this time. It is believed that, Mother Earth becomes unclean for 3 days as the traditional women becomes during their menstrual seclusion. After 3 days Devi Kamakhya is bathed and other rituals are performed to ensure that the Devi retrieves her purity again. On the fourth day the devotees are allowed to worship Devi Kamakhya. The doors of the temple are reopened and Prasad is distributed.
This prasad is distributed in 2 forms: Angodak and Angabastra. Angodak is the fluid part of the Goddess-water from the spring. Angabastra is a piece of the red cloth used to cover the stone Yoni during this period.
