The noose that She holds, is also for extinguishing all negative traits in our mind and actions, as well as our adversaries and to pull us back to the righteous path. She feeds upon the flesh of our adversaries meaning that She removes all bodily afflictions that we may have such as diseases and other health related conditions and any other inhibitions related to the body. She also feeds upon all our negative traits and removes every fear that we may have. She is the divine protector who is always there to protect and provide for our needs. May we meditate upon the glorious and praise worthy form of the Divine Mother Śrī Astra Vārāhi, Who protects us at all times.
