This information comes from my own knowledge.
Varahi has the face of a boar (pig), her eyes are sharp and her power is said to be in her nose ; her breath can do it all. In Srividya upasana, Varahi is considered to be the Shakti who can take the Bhaktha closer to Sri Lalitha. Whoever chants her name three times is relieved of any problems. She is considered to be the 5th among the Saptha Mathas - Brahmi, Maheshwari, Kaumari, Vaishnavi, Varahi, Indrani, Chamundi. Varahi possesses an abundance of Dhairyam, Veeryam, Vijayam. She is very quick to act to the cries of her bhakthas.
Varahi is the goddess of the Earth. It is proven from the lives of several Varahi devotees that those who believe and surrender to her are sure to be blessed with a house or land of their own. She is the "Bhoomi Devi".. One of the lines from Varahi Panchakam reads "Veedu Koduppaval, Vendum Varam Tharum Brihath Varahi Avale". Even though she looks fierce, she is very soft hearted and cannot see tears in the eyes of her devotees. Anyone who takes her name three times and cries sincerely to Varahi Amman will never go empty handed. Varahi is the Maha Senathipathi for Lalithambigai. She is a warrior. Those who lack confidence can recite Varahi's name everyday and will find themselves a changed person soon.
During Krithayuga, an asuran by the name of Hiranyaakshan took control of the Earth and hid it under the oceans. As a result Brahma was unable to continue his task of creation on Earth. Restless and clueless on where to find the earth and how to continue his duties, he approached Mahavishnu to seek help. Mahavishnu incarnated himself in the form of a boar (Varaham), killed Hiranyaakshan and lifted the earth out of the oceans with his tusks. It is believed that the Shakthi associated with Varahaswamy is Varahi.
Many consider her a ferocious goddess and even fear to keep a photo of hers in the house. Since she bears the face of a pig and holds a "Dandam" Cane and "Ulakkai" in her hand, people think she is a DushtaDeivam or DushtaShakti. In fact, there is no other goddess who is as kind-hearted as Varahi. In her pooja, we address her as "Karunaiye Uruvaanavale Varahi". She is also considered as Goddess Mahalakshmi since she is Vishu Shakti. In our family, we have given the name PIG a different version.. Yes.. Varahi is a PIG.. Pretty Indian Goddess or Pretty Indian Girl.
It is believed that Snakes, other poisonous creatures or any dushtasakthi cannot get into the vicinity of those who pray to Varahi or have attained Siddhi from Sri Varahi pooja. Those who are sharp tongued and hurt others with their words will be tamed by Varahi. She is also called "Vaaku Sthambini". Out of personal experiences, I feel blessed by Varahi, am forever grateful to her and will pray to always remain at her feet and get her unconditional love. We consider her, our mother.
For those interested, I am giving below simple Mantras for chanting. They are simple and hold no restrictions of time and place. There is nothing to fear. The only requirement is pure bhakti and sincerity.
