LORD LAKSHMI-PALLINATH - PALI

THE TEMPLE
Lord Lakshmi-Pallinath of Pali is our Family Deity (KulaSwami). Pali lies on the Mumbai Goa highway near Ratnagiri and is the family deity of several Karhade Brahmin Families. Shri Pallinath is also the Family deity of Rani Lakshmibai of Jhansi(both before and after marriage). Tambes, Nevalkars, Chandorkars, Athalyes have this deity as their Kulaswami.



The following Shloka praises lord Lakshmi-Pallinatha
THE LORD LAXMI PALLINATH

1. जपा कुसुमसंकाशं रक्तनेत्रं त्रिलोचनं
दिगंबरं महाकायं भक्तानामभयप्रदम्
2. त्रिशूलं डमरू खड्गं पात्रं च करपंगजे
बिभ्राणं योगिनीनाथं पल्लीशं भूतनायकं
3. युवानं हास्यवदनं तांबूलेना वृताननं
ऊर्ध्वकेशं भूतिभालं चिंतयेत् कार्यसिद्धिदम्

THE NAGARKHANA
 BUILD BY RANI OF JHANSI
Although the name Lakshmi appears before Pallinath he is not Vishnu as is seen from the above Shlokas, just like Lakshmi Ravalnatha (Jotiba) Lakshmi Pallinath is also lord Shankar. Lakshmi herein means "Yogini" (64 Yoginis of Shaktas) which is the collective name for 64 assistant energies. It denotes the influence of the Shakta Tantric Spirituality. For more energy dissipation, the idol is Dakshinabhimukh (facing the South ).
Lord LakshmiPallinatha is worshipped with the Ritual of Rudra Adhyaya just like lord Dattatreya moorti in Devale.

I got information from my uncle (yesterday only) that the Lakshmi Pallinath of Pali is our family deity. We would visit the place for darshan shortly.
Information provided in the article is very educative and useful. Thanks a lot.
