Glory of Bharat Mata

Bharat Mata , Mother India, or Bharatamba is the national personification of India as a mother goddess. She is usually depicted as a woman clad in a saffron sari holding a flag, and sometimes accompanied by a lion.love of Bharat Mata is the basic Vedic demand. Bharat Mata is the Major Deity of the land. It is especially true when we realise that other gods have suffered from the effects of change but Bharat Mata has always remained the same. Therefore, she ought to be worshipped as the Deity of India. Therefore, worship of other gods is optional but the worship of Bharat Mata, the Chief Diety is a must for the simple reason that the people born on her soil are fed, clothed, educated and cremated or buried there. Thus, their dignity, destiny and dominion are directly dependent on their devotion to Bharat Mata; a free and prosperous Bharat Mata is a source of pleasure, pride and probity to her devotees but a betrayed, bedeviled and battered Bharat Mata is the source of decay, decline and disaster; other gods have come and gone but Bharat Mata shall always be there.
