Dasa Mahavidya – Ten Aspects Of Adishakti

Analyzing the word ‘Mahavidya’, we find ‘Maha‘ meaning great, ‘Vidya‘ meaning form or manifestation. ‘Dasa Mahavidya’ means special form or manifestation. Just as the ten Avatars of Vishnu are the manifestation of Vishnu at different stages of creation, so are each of the Dasa Mahavidya (ten forms of Adishakti), the female forms of those Avatars (incarnations) of Lord Vishnu.

Dasa Mahavidyas

Story Behind Dasa Mahavidya

There is a myth behind these ten great forms of Adishakti. Prajapati Daksha did not like the marriage of Shiva and Sati. He arranged a Yajna to insult Shiva. Although all the gods were invited there, Shiva and Sati did not get invitation. Meanwhile, hearing about the arrangement of that Yajna, Sati took the vow to go to her father’s house. But Shiva was also relentless. He would not allow Sati to go to her father’s house without invitation, because he knew that if Sati had gone there, Daksharaja would have humiliated her. When Sati saw that Shiva was not willing to let her go at all, she became enraged. She manifested ten forms of Adishakti or Mother Goddess. Being frightened Shiva tried to escape then. But the ten forms of Goddess surrounded Shiva, preventing him from escaping. These ten forms are known as the Dasa Mahavidya.

Each Mahavidya has her own unique name, appearance, mantras, and powers. Let us know the ten forms of Dasa Mahavidya:

Kali

Kali is the first among the Mahavidyas, because she came before Kaal (time), and before light itself. She is black-skinned and four-armed and she wears a garland of fifty-two skulls, representing the letters of the Sanskrit alphabet, and also the mortality of her human children. She holds the sword of enlightenment in one of her hand, and a severed human head representing the ego in another hand.

Kali

Story

Kali destroyed demon Raktabija. Raktabija got a boon that if one drop of his blood fell on the ground, another duplicate would be born. Then the Mother Goddess assumed the form of Kali, stretched her tongue, and drank the blood of the Raktabija before it fell to the ground and destroyed the demons. When the goddess started Vijay (victory) dancing, the creation was about to be destroyed. In this situation Shiva laid down on the path of the dancing goddess and she stepped on him by mistake. Realizing this, she stopped dancing. As a result, the creation was saved.

Tara

Goddess Tara is the second Mahavidya. The name comes from the Sanskrit root ‘Tar‘, meaning protection. In other Indian languages, the name translates as star. Many theologists think Tara’s name is derived from ‘Tara‘, which means to cross. One of her epithets is Samsaratarini (she who takes across the ocean of worldly existence). Similar in appearance to Kali, Tara is the maternal, peaceful aspect of the goddess, who helps her devotees cross the turbulent seas of deceit to the shore of enlightenment. She is sometimes depicted as breastfeeding Shiva. Goddess Tara is worshipped in both Hinduism and Buddhism as the goddess of compassion and protection.

Tara

Story

According to the Puranas, the gods and demons churned the cosmic ocean to obtain the nectar of immortality. The churning released a number of things from the ocean, including a deadly poison that could destroy all three worlds (heaven, earth and netherworld). Lord Shiva drank the poison to save the creation, but fell unconscious from its effects. Then Goddess Tara appeared, put him in her lap, and suckled him. The healing power of her milk brought Shiva back to life.

Tripura Sundari

The third Mahavidya is Tripura Sundari. ‘Tri‘ means three, ‘Pura‘ refers to city or citadel or world, and ‘Sundari‘ means beautiful. So her name literally means she who is beautiful in all three worlds. She is most often depicted as seated in the lap of Lord Siva, while goddess Sri Lakshmi Devi and Sarswati Devi are there on her right and left holding ‘vinjamarams’ ( fans) in their hands to serve Her The legs of the throne are formed by the various forms of Trinity (Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva). This shows her supremacy to all the other gods.

Tripura Sundari

Story

Bhandasura was a demon created from the ashes of Kamadeva. He performed severe austerities to please Lord Shiva, for which he was rewarded with the boons that whomsoever dares to fight Bhandasura would forfeit half of his strength and masculinity to him. As a result, no god, man or demon challenged to attack him.

Fearing him and his vicious boons, the Devas (gods) went into hiding where they worshipped the Goddess Adishakti. When Bhandasura came to know of the gods’ trick against him, he attacked them at the spot where they were performing a Yajna to conciliate the goddess. In fear, the Devas entered the fire pit and immolated themselves. When a relieved Bhandasura had gone, the Mother Goddess took the form of Goddess Tripura Sundari and resurrected all the gods of the multiverse and restored their duties.

Bhuvaneshvari

The fourth Mahividya is named Bhuvaneshvari. ‘Bhuvana‘ means universe and ‘Isvari‘ means sovereign. So ‘Bhuvaneshvari’ means the ruler of the entire universe. The universe begins and ends in her. Just as Kali represents Time, so Bhuvaneshvari represents Space. These two Mahavidyas thus represent the two main aspects of the Mother Goddess: the infinite, and the eternal. Bhuvaneshvari also represents maya, or illusion, which veils ultimate reality if the creation.

Bhuvaneshvari

Story

Once, the Trideva, Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva, were contending over who among them was most important and powerful within the universe. The Goddess Bhuvaneshvari intervened and enlightened them that she was the creator of the universe, additionally of themselves. At that point she gave them her shakti, or vitality, in the form of the Goddesses Saraswati, Lakshmi and Parvati to assist them create, maintain and preserve the world – until its extreme devastation, when the cycle will begin over again.

Bhairavi

The fifth Mahavidya, Bhairavi is the fierce manifestation of the goddess, quite close to goddess Kali herself. Her consort is Bhairava, the equally fierce manifestation of Lord Shiva. One of Bhairavi’s forms is Chandi, a ferocious goddess who helped Kali to destroy the demon Raktabija. Chandi is also famous for destroying the demons Chanda and Munda. Goddess Bhairavi is often depicted seated on her loyal donkey, her mouth stained with demon blood, another hand holding a blood-stained sword.

Bhairavi

Story

According to mythology, Goddess Bhairavi’s presence the battle field, and her horrible appearance made the demons powerless and very weak, and the most of the demons started fleeing as soon as they saw her. In Durga Saptashathi version of slaying powerful demons Shumbha and Nishumbha, Goddess Bhairavi is seen primarily as the goddess Kali. Goddess Parvati gave her a boon of being called Chamundeshwari when she killed and drunk the blood of Chanda and Munda.

Chhinnamasta

Chhinnamasta is one the most frightening forms of the goddess. The goddess is usually depicted holding her severed head in one hand, a scimitar in the other. Three jets of blood spurt out of her neck, one feeding her own severed head, and the others beings drunk by her two attendants, Jaya and Vijaya. She is often depicted nude and red-skinned, standing or sitting on a copulating couple.

Chhinnamasta

Story

one day while bathing in Mandakini river, Parvati (the consort of Shiva, and the reincarnation of Sati) became excited and turned black. At the same time, her two attendants Jaya and Vijaya (also known as Dakini and Varnini) became hungry and begged her for food. The generous goddess cut off her own head to feed them her blood. Apparently, she rejoined her head after they were satisfied.

Dhumavati

The literal meaning of the name of goddess Dhumavati means the smoky one. It is deeply interesting that this aspect of the Dasa Mahavidya is depicted as a crone – an ugly old woman. A widow, in fact, associated with all things inauspicious. She is often depicted riding a crow or a horseless chariot in a cremation ground.

Dhumavati

Story

One day Sati was very hungry, and asked her husband Shiva for food. When he refused , Sati consumed him to satisfy her hunger. After a little while, Shiva requested her to disgorge him. She complied, but Shiva cursed her to be a widow. She appeared with smoke covering her entire body and the smoke from her body took the form of Dhumavati.

Bagalamukhi

Bagalamukhi is is eighth Mahavidya and a goddess of great occult power, who smashes her devotees’ misconceptions with her cudgel, who paralyses and silences her enemies. She is often depicted beating a demon with a cudgel in her right hand, while she pulls out his tongue with her left hand, denoting the ability to stun or paralyze an enemy into silence.

Bagalamukhi

Story

Once a demon called Madan gained Vak-siddhi (the perfection of speech), by which whatever he said came true. He utilized it to great destructive effect, killing numerous individuals. The gods asked for goddess Bagalamukhi’s help. Then the goddess grabbed the demon’s tongue and thus neutralized the supernatural power of Madan.

Matangi

Matangi is the ninth of the ten Mahavidya Goddesses. She is believed to be the Tantric form of Saraswati, the goddess of music and learning. Like Goddess Saraswati, Matangi governs speech, music, knowledge, arts and crafts. He is also known as Uchchhishta-Chandalini or Uchchhishta-Matangini.

Matangi

Story

Once, Lord Vishnu and his consort goddess Lakshmi visited Lord Shiva and goddess Parvati (Shiva’s consort and a reincarnation of Sati) and gave them a feast of fine foods. While eating, the deities dropped some food on the ground, from which arose a beautiful maiden, an appearance of Goddess Saraswati. The four deities granted her their left-overs as prasadam (food made sacred by having been first consumed by a deity). This could be translated as the Uchchhishta of the deity, in spite of the fact that due to its negative essence the word Uchchhishta is never expressly utilized in association to prasadam. Shiva proclaimed that those who recite her mantra and worship her will have their material desires satisfied and gain control over enemies, pronouncing her the provider of boons. From that day, the maiden was known as Uchchhishta-Matangini.

Kamala

Goddess Kamala is last of the Dasa Mahavidya. She is none other than Lakshmi herself, the goddess of wealth, fortune, power, prosperity, luxury, beauty, fertility and auspiciousness. She is the consort of Lord Vishnu. She is a very important deity in Hinduism and is worshipped along with God Ganesha by many Hindu households. Of course, she is associated with all things auspicious and wonderful: wealth, riches, happiness, beauty, and grace.

Kamala

Story

Adi Parashakti had created the entire universe but her task yet still remained incomplete even though the universe was complete but it was unfinished due to the absence of prosperity. She wanted to transform herself into Goddess Kamala to manifest all types of wealth and prosperity in the world. The appropriate time for it had come. She took birth as the daughter of sage Bhrigu and manifested prosperity in the world.
