Ma3Ka - the triad supreme, a dance theatre solo by Anita Ratnam
From awesome to ferocious, beautiful, graceful and powerful - all at once.
She is the truth. Reality.
She is the hand that gives, guides, nourishes, protects, reprimands, forgives and sustains.
She is radiance, showering unconditional love…
She is everything, and no one is separate from her.
She is the God Mother Trinity Supreme.

Lakshmi - Prosperity Mother. Her Lotus feet walking through our lives, leave behind Foot Prints of Abundance.
Meenakshi - Warrior Mother. Divine Lioness, with Her battle-ready Trishul defends to protect and saves.
She is energy, exuberant in play. The joy of experience passed on generously from within.
She is a confluence, a woman, owning her powers.
She is Matrika.
Earth Mother, three times and more…
