Clan Deity – The deity who protects the clan is the clan deity. The clan deity is also called as Kuladevatha. The most powerful deity among the deities is the clan deity. No matter how many deities there are, the clan deity is number one in all forms of worship. It is the clan deity who gives us grace easily.
No planet can do anything for those who are doing the clan deity cult properly. The clan deity has such a power. The deities can change for everyone but its power will be the same.
If you do not have the grace of the deity in the house, you will not get a blessing no matter what kind of mahana you worship. It does not say do not worship other gods. Even if you worship another deity, you will get the blessings of that deity only if you go to the temple of other deities after worshiping your deity. Be sure to visit your ancestral temple once a month or once a year at their convenience. Go in person and perform pooja.
There is a big difference between going to other temples and worshiping and worshiping a tribal deity. When you go to other temples, you will buy coconuts and fruits and return with offerings. But there is an additional duty when it comes to worshiping the deity. After your deity goes to the temple and worships at Pongal, you have to return after performing the rites. He can perform puja according to tradition.
Doing this is the proper form of deity worship.
Kula Deva Worship - Description
Our clan deity is the deity worshiped by our ancestors i.e. our grandparents. One can sense by looking closely that there is one of the greatest order, in this line of patriarchs. That is the path of a Rishi called ‘Gotram’. Women from other tribes would come and join hands with our grandfathers’ life partner on this path. For whatever reason, women do not belong to the same tribe. Thus, the Rishi dynasty will not be cut like a chain link, but will be of the same fraternal color.
This is an important disciplinary matter. There are a thousand temples in this world. They may or may not have gone to those temples. It is not guaranteed. But, even before we know what devotion is to the ancestral temple, we are taken there by our mother and father and continue to worship as the first bald and ear piercing as a hair offering. Seen in this light, when we go and stand at the shrine, we go and stand in our lineage. Can this hierarchical relationship be established elsewhere, in any way? Isn’t it our way of life that we don’t even know there is such a lineage behind the birth of a human being, let alone more than two great-grandparents? As far as a family is concerned that divine power manifests itself as a clan deity, a name for them. It is even wrong to say so. To emerge, the process was done!
And by whom? By our ancestors! Who are they? Our beginnings… Who are we?
Continuation of that beginning! On the whole, we and they are not different.
In the course of this one may have tied the bundle of bundles. Let another sin! When we go there and worship that divine power that manifests exclusively for our sake, they also look down from the sky as patriarchs. We too are blessed. How far-sighted is this, a thing designed?
There is a great deal of good in this cult. Suppose that one goes without a sense of devotion due to circumstances or past karma, as well as for various reasons. That is, we are not ready to believe in this invisible God. There is nothing wrong with believing in atheism and getting to the point where he can go. The great thing about this is that one day he will surely change his mind and be in touch with grace, as he has been worshiped and blessed by his parents in this lineage, even before he took such an atheistic position.
The gods for us
1.House Deity : They have a tradition of worshiping their dead ancestors or women who lived and died as virgins as their house goddess. It will often be the goddess. It is said to be the house Sami, the family deity, the virgin deity, the life-giver.
2. Clan deity : A ‘clan’ is a group that is related to each other by appearing in the tradition of a particular ancestor. Blood partners are considered to belong to the same clan. Marriage does not take place between them. Thus there will be a separate deity and temple for each clan. This is also known as Kuladeyvam and Kuladeyvak Koil. The proverbs ‘Worshiping the deity has many benefits’ and ‘Even if you forget the Guru, do not forget the deity’ convey the importance of deity worship. You can find the name of the deity in the invitations to the flower ceremony, wedding and earring ceremony invitations.
3. Ethnic deity : Many clans are said to belong to one race, one caste. The deities belonging to a particular caste are given the names of ethnic deities, ethnic deities and caste deities. Worship of these deities is best done to show the uniqueness of a particular race. Most of the goddesses are ethnic deities. The ethnic deities are the unifying force of the same lineage.
4. Urch deity : The guardian of the house is the deity of the house, the guardian of the clan is the clan deity, and the guardian of the race is the deity of the race, but the guardian of all the people living in a town is the deity. These are referred to as Urch Sami, Urth Devatai, Grama Devatai and Urkaval Deivam. The Urmas all together will make a very critical big bow to the idols. If you visit a village in Tamil Nadu, you can identify the above deities.
5.Vakusana deities – The deities who are worshiped here by all, irrespective of caste, religion or language, are described here as mass deities. They are being developed and developed as a mixed cult tradition between idolatry and polytheism. Worship of the deity is very, very important because one’s clan must be rooted and nurtured.
