Would anyone add the following:

  • The body colour of Meenakshi is greenish, a very rare stone geologically
  • She has one parrot perched on her shoulder - the spiritual significance thereof as found in any of the Nayanmars' poems
  • A photo of the idol - beauty personified

Why don't you do it? Apparently you're knowledgeable. siafu 21:41, 3 May 2005 (UTC)
I could have but for the fact that –
  • I do not know ABC of geology
  • I faintly remember that in my childhood days once I heard the significance in a Kathakalashepam (spiritual discourse) of Variar. I have now no access to Nayanmars poems and neither I would be able to do research separately
  • I am living at a great distance from Madurai and taking latest photo is just not feasible
Hence I sought the help of others.

Spelling[edit]

Propose to rename this article to Minakshi, in line with a standard system, see Wikipedia:WikiProject_Hinduism#Naming_and_Transliteration. Imc 13:08, 11 February 2006 (UTC)

Many articles link to this one on Meenakshi[edit]

If you change the spelling, be sure to change all the links in other articles to the new spelling. Mattisse(talk) 16:01, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

Why "akshi" is once translated as "monarchy" and once as "eyes"? Shouldn't it be both time "eyes"? If not it should be explained otherwise it's very confusing.

Odd Section[edit]

Shouldn't this section:

Winning over maya (illusion) is just the realisation of Truth. This is what the Lord can do for us. This is the purpose of all scriptures. This Realisation is the establishment of the symbol (Linga-sthApanaM) of the Light of the Self. Lord Rama did this on the shores of the Ocean just before He crossed over to Lanka. The Lord Shiva as Sundaresvara did a similar pratiSThApanaM (winning over maya) on the day of his wedding with the Goddess Minakshi. Throughout the three worlds the establishment of the sphaTika-lingaM as the unique expression of the Truth in one’s heart augurs for the victory over the mysterious prakRti.[2]

Be a quote or something? It seems to be a religious text of some kind. --72.23.28.29 (talk) 20:15, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
