Siddhacakra worship

All forms of worship of the siddhacakra are linked to the tale of Śrīpal and Mayṇāsundarī. The Siddhacakra Mahāpūjā is the ceremony of worship most prominently associated with the ritual cluster and its powers, because it is the one performed together by Śrīpal and Mayṇāsundarī after his miraculous healing. It is thus credited with having healing powers and bringing good fortune and marital contentment.
