Mahavidya Matangi is one of the ten Mahavidyas. Matangi is the Goddess of the spoken word and supernatural power. Matangi represents a ferocious aspect of Devi, the Hindu Divine Mother.
Matangi is the dark one, a tantric form of Saraswati. Matangi governs speech, music, knowledge and the arts. Matangi is the daughter of Matang Rishi.
Matangi is worshipped to acquire supernatural powers, especially gaining control over enemies, attracting people, acquiring mastery over the arts and gaining supreme knowledge. Matangi is invoked to achieve command over speech, creativity and knowledge.
Dusky, beautiful browed, her three eyes like lotuses, seated on a jeweled lion-throne, surrounded by gods and others serving her, holding in her four lotus-like hands a noose and a sword, a shield, and a goad, thus I remember Matangi, the giver of results, the Modini.
