Dasa Mahavidya - The 10 aspects of Adi Parashakti

 

 

In Tantra, the worship of Devi or Shakti is called Vidya (lit. Knowledge - Wisdom). Among the countless tantric practices, the cult of the ten major Shakti is called Dasa Mahavidya. These ten aspects of Shakti are the personification of the whole creation.

The Mahavidyas are considered Tantric in nature and are usually identified as:

 

  1. Kali: The ultimate form of Brahman, "Devourer of Time".

  2. Tara: The Goddess as Guide and Protector, or Who Saves. Who offers the ultimate knowledge which gives salvation (also known as Neel Saraswati).

  3. Shodashi or Lalita Tripurasundari: The Goddess Who is "Beautiful in the Three Worlds"; the "Tantric Parvati" or the "Moksha Mukta".

  4. Bhuvaneshvari: The Goddess as World Mother, or whose body is the cosmos.

  5. Bhairavi: The Fierce Goddess.

  6. Chinnamasta: The self-decapitated Goddess.

  7. Dhumavati: The Widow Goddess, or the Goddess of death.

  8. Bagalamukhi: The Goddess who paralyzes enemies.

  9. Matangi: the Prime Minister of Lalita; the "Tantric Saraswati".

  10. Kamala: The Lotus Goddess; the "Tantric Lakshmi".

 

History of the origins of the Ten Mahavidyas

Sati, the consort of Shiva was the daughter of Daksha Prajapati, a descendant of Brahma. Sati had married Shiva against the wishes of his father who considered him low-ranking and not civilized. Daksha then performed a great Yaj˝a with the sole purpose of insulting Shiva, invited all the gods and goddesses, except her son-in-law, Sadashiva.

Sati learned of the Yaj˝a of his father Daksha from Narada Muni. He asked permission to Shiva to attend the Yaj˝a, saying that a daughter did not need an invitation from her father. Shiva said that Daksha was trying to insult him, and so even if Sati was present in the Yaj˝a, the fruit of the sacrifice would not have been a good omen. So he ordered Sati not to go to the Yaj˝a.

Sati was furious and annoyed by this refusal and showed Shiva her form of Adi Parashakti, the Divine Mother. The oceans raged, the mountains trembled and the atmosphere filled with the wonder of its shape.

Shiva began to tremble and tried to escape. But in every direction he tried to escape, the Divine Mother stopped him. The Divine Mother had multiplied in ten different forms, guarding each of the ten directions by blocking every escape route to Shiva.

After seeing so powerful Shaktis around him, Shiva asked, "Who are you? Where is my Sati? " The answer was: "I am your Sati, the furious forms all around you are my ten different incarnations, do not be afraid of them. At this point, Shiva had no other way but to allow Sati to go and see the Yaj˝a.

These ten forms of Adi Shakti are popularly known as Dasa Mahavidya.

Kali

The Devourer of Time

 

 

Kali is the most popular among the forms of the Divine Mother, but also the most misunderstood by non-Indian cultures for its so terrifying form and the symbolisms of death.

Kali is depicted dancing in a cremation ground on a corpse (which is Shiva). She has a dark blue skin and wears a garland of skulls and human bones like earrings. She has a long, protruding tongue and is laughing. Sometimes instead of the tongue She has two fangs. She has four arms and holds a bloody sword with one hand and a severed head that runs blood with the other. With the other hands She makes mudras that free from fear and give blessings. She wears a skirt made of human arms. She is naked because She is free from all illusion.

 

Shiva in the Mahanirvana Tantra describes Kali thus:

As white, yellow, and other colours all disappear in black, in the same way all beings enter Kali.

Therefore it is that by those who have attained the knowledge of the means of final liberation, the attributeless, formless, and beneficent Kalashakti is endowed with the colour of blackness.

As the eternal and inexhaustible One image of Kala and soul of beneficence is nectar itself, therefore the sign of the Moon is placed on her forehead. As She surveys the entire universe, which is the product of time, with Her three eyes ľ the Moon, the Sun, and Fire ľ therefore she is endowed with three eyes.

As She devours all existence, as She chews all things existing with her fierce teeth, therefore a mass of blood is imagined to be the apparel of the Queen of the Devas (at the final dissolution).

As time after time She protects all beings from danger, and as She directs them in the paths of duty, her hands are lifted up to dispel fear and grant blessings.

As She encompasses the universe, which is the product of Rajoguna, she is spoken of, as the Devi who is seated on the red lotus, gazing at Kala drunk with intoxicating wine and playing with the universe. The Devi also, whose substance is intelligence, witnesseth all things .

 

Time is life. Life is our movement over time. Through our life force or Prana we live the time. Kali as Time is Vital Force. She is the power of action or transformation. Kali is life. She is the secret power behind the functioning of our bodily systems and vital energy. Only through her do we live, and it is her intelligence that gives such a marvelous order to the body and to the whole universe. Kali is the eternal love that exists in the essence of life, that love that goes beyond the cycle of life and death, is awareness of the eternal nature of life.

To realize the eternity that is Kali, our mortal nature must be sacrificed to make space for our cosmic and divine nature. Kali extinguishes all our desires, is the state of the dissolution of desire, She is Samadhi, She is Nirvana, She is the death of Death. This is why She appears to us so destructive and terrifying, She is the one that destroys the demons of our mind, the vicious mental circles, and gives rise to the awareness of pure consciousness.

Tara

The Savior

 

 

Tara has an intense blue color. It is very similar to Kali and equally terrifying. Her hair is tangled and has snakes as ornaments. The tongue dangling and thirsty for blood, dances on a corpse, wears a garland of human heads and is dressed in the skin of a tiger. She has four arms holding a lotus, a sword, a scissors, a severed head or a drinking bowl.

The term Tara means liberator or savior, but also to cross, to go beyond, from the Sanskrit tri root, which means "to cross", like to cross a river, the ocean, a mountain or any difficult situation. Tara is the savior, she is the guide, it is the knowledge that saves.

Tara is also the unmanifested sound personified as a goddess. Tara is the saving force through the sound of the mantra. Tara is the OM that pervades all the creation, She is the primordial sound that is the origin of creation but also its dissolution.

Tara is also an important Buddhist deity consort of the Buddha Avalokiteshvara, she is the compassionate goddess towards all living beings. The mantra, both Hindu and Buddhist, dedicated to her as a prayer is तारे तुत्तारे तुरे स्वाहा - Oṃ tāre tuttāre ture svāhā (soha in Tibetan).

Shodashi or Lalita Tripurasundari

The Beauty of the Three Worlds

 

 

Shodashi or Lalita Tripurasundari is seated on a lotus, which is placed on the body of Shiva/Kameshvara who lies in a state of ecstasy on a throne supported by Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, and Rudra. She has a noose, a goad, symbol of command , a bow and an arrow in each of her hands. Always ready to pour blessings on her devotees, her appearance is completely calm and gentle and her heart is full of compassion. She is the most blessed and beautiful of all the Goddesses, as she represents Supreme Bliss.

She is called Shodashi, which in Sanskrit means sixteen, as her youthful appearance of sixteen, or Bala "the young girl", thus embodying all the good qualities of youth, such as beauty, creativity, playfulness, innocence, light, truth. Lalita literally means playful, loving, joyful while Tripurasundari means the beauty of the three cities or the three worlds. The three worlds represent the three states of consciousness: wakefulness, dream and deep sleep. Lalita is the supreme bliss that lies beyond the three states of consciousness, She is the personification of the Turya, the fourth state of consciousness, She represents the Samadhi, the union with the Supreme Self that occurs when Kundalini ascends to the Sahasrara Chakra. Sundari represents the beauty of bliss that arises when we see the whole universe in ourselves, when we see all of nature as a reflection of the reality of consciousness. Sundari is therefore the beauty of nature but seen through the spiritual eye of unity, the realization that the whole universe is Brahman.

It is also called Rajarajeshvari or "the supreme sovereign of the universe". Or Shrividya, the Goddess of the Shri Chakra which is a symbol of Space-Time, in Union with Vital Energy. She is the divinity that dwells on top of Mount Meru, the cosmic mountain. She is the divinity that dwells on Sahasrara Chakra.

Bhuvaneshvari

The World Mother

 

 

Bhuvan is the whole universe, Bhuvanesvari is the Divine Mother as the Queen of all the worlds.

In Todala Tantra and in the various iconographies She is described as follows: Sitting on a lotus flower. Her body is resplendent like the red rays of the rising sun, with the moon as a diadem and richly jeweled. She has three eyes and a smiling face. She holds a noose (Pasha) and a goad (Ankusha, symbol of command), and takes on the mudra of blessing and the one that frees from fears.

Bhuvanesvari is the Supreme Sovereign of manifested Existence, embodies all the liveliness and attributes of living nature. She represents the forces of the material world. All existence is the field of Her joyous play. She is Sarveshi the sovereign of all. She is also Mahamaya the great enchantress. She is Prakrti, the energy behind creation. She is therefore also called Pradhana and Prapanchesvari who governs the world of the five elements. She is also Prithvi who was saved by Vishnu in her Varaha Avatar.

Because of Her beauty, grace and wisdom, Bhuvanesvari looks a lot like Shodashi. Bhuvanesvari is also in close contact with Kali. Like Space, Bhuvanesvari coordinates with the dimension of time represented by Kali. And like Earth, Bhuvanesvari gives Kali the stage to act her dance of life and death. It is said that Kali creates events over time while Bhuvanesvari creates objects in space.

There are also other descriptions of Bhuvanesvari in which She is depicted in three forms, similar in appearance, but in three colors: gold (Hemangi), red (Soubhagya Bhuvanesvari) and bluish (Maya Bhuvanesvari). These correspond to the three Gunas which are the plot of the material world.

Bhuvanesvari is the world but also transcends the world.

She helps us to go beyond all identities.

Bhairavi

The Fierce Goddess

 

 

Bhairavi is the fierce and terrifying Goddess, very similar to Kali, She is the destructive aspect of Kali, the Goddess of Time, and She is Bhairava's consort the fierce aspect of Shiva. She embodies the wrath of a mother who protects her child. Her appearance is scary, naked and black as night, with long and wild black hair and a garland of skulls on his chest. She has her tongue out, dripping with blood and She wandering between the places of death and the cremation ground. Bhairavi is the destructive force in nature. She represents decadence, weakness, aging and finally death that occur everywhere, in all and in all, to which no one can escape.

She has many names that include both benign and terrible aspects, the Tantrasara describes 12 of these forms: Sampatprada Bhairavi, Sakalasiddhi Bhairavi, Bhayavinashini Bhairavi, Chaitanya Bhairavi, Bhuvaneshvari Bhairavi, Kameshvari Bhairavi, Annapurneshvari Bhairavi, Nitya Bhairavi, Rudra Bhairavi, Bhadra Bhairavi, Subhamkari Bhairavi and Smashana Bhairavi. She is also called Tripura Bhairavi, Kaulesh Bhairavi, Jagad-dhatri, Parameshvari, Jaganmata, and She is also the other half of Ardhanarishwara.

She is also called Ghora Tara, Kalaratri and Chandi, the most ferocious form of the Goddess, which is the main deity of the famous Devi Mahatmya, a great seven hundred verse poem taken from the Markandeya Purana (also called Durga Saptashati or Chandi Path) which tells of the destruction of demons by the Devi and is recited during the nine nights of Navaratri.

She is the most vivid representation of the Kundalini rising from Muladhra Chakra.

She is also described as Tejas, the fire that enlivens the elements (tanmatra). She is the power over the senses and the elements. She is Tapas the heat of penance that transforms the adept by burning the basic desires and attachments. She is as well Chidagni the flame of conscience. Bhairavi also represents the power of the word.

And She is also Maha-pralaya the great dissolution at the end of the cycle when all things are consumed by fire and dissolved in the ocean of pre-creation from which a new universe emerges.

Bhairavi's sadhana is completely tantric and mostly Gupta (secret), and should only be undertaken under the guidance of an expert Guru. Today these practices are almost completely forgotten, and there are few places where they are performed in secret (like Kamakhya).

Chinnamasta

The self-decapitated Goddess

 

 

Chinnamasta or Chinnamastika or Prachanda Chandika, the Goddess with the severed head, is perhaps the most horrible and disturbing representation of the Great Divine Mother. There are many myths associated with her but She has come to prominence mainly as Mahavidya.

Chinnamasta is depicted as a girl of sixteen who has cut off her head with her sword, is naked (Digambari, a symbol of freedom from illusions and other limitations) and adorned with garlands of skulls and necklaces of bones. She wears a snake as a sacred thread. She voluptuously drinks the blood that flows from her body. She is alive even if her head is severed from her body. The blood that flows from her severed head flows into three jets. The central jet flows into the mouth of her own head, usually held in her left hand, while the other two jets fall into the mouths of her two hungry companions, Dakini and Varnini, standing on both sides.

Chinnamasta self-destructs to support and promote life in its various forms: the life represented by the couple who makes love under her, the death she reveals in decapitating herself and the nourishment that manifests herself in nourishing the yoginis are all integral aspects of life.

The explanations of the symbolisms associated with the horrible image of Chinnamasta are truly numerous, being regarded as the classic imaginary of tantric symbolism. Chinnamasta, in her creative and destructive aspects, means apparent dissolution and return to the elements. She embodies heroism (Vira): she demonstrates the rare courage needed to make the highest imaginable sacrifice. The cut head represents the non-mind (Unmana) or the state freed from the limitations of the mind. Chinnamasta awakens consciousness. It is the Conscious beyond the Mind. The severed head means discarding the ego and all identities on the path of spiritual awakening, an indispensable factor for achieving liberation. She represents the free flow of energy through the Sushumna channel. She is the Kundalini Shakti that flows upward from the base of the spine to blow up in Sahasrara Chakra and unite with infinity. She is also seen as a symbol of self-control, fearlessness and the incarnation of sexual energy.

Dhumavati

The Widow Goddess

 

 

Dhumavati is depicted as an old and ugly widow, thin, pale and sick. She wears old and dirty clothes, is unadorned with jewels, her breasts dangling, her hair is gray and ruffled. She stands on a chariot without horses whose signs are a crow. In one of her trembling hands, She holds a basket to sift the grains and with the other She blesses those who can still see the Divine Mother in her.

She always seems hungry and thirsty. In Prana-toshini Tantra her origin is thus told:

Sati had extreme pangs of hunger. She was so hungry that she asked Shiva to bring him something to eat. But Shiva refused returning to meditation. Sati asked again and again, beginning to become aggressive, but remained unheard. So it was that She acted impetuously and devoured Shiva to appease her hunger. Immediately the smoke began to flow out of her body because Shiva, who was inside her body, had opened his third eye. So Sati did nothing but vomit it. Shiva, out of her, rejected her and cursed her, condemning her to take the form of a widow.

Dhuma in Sanskrit means smoke, Dhumavati is therefore the smoky form of Shakti. Her nature is not illumination but darkening. However, obscuring one thing often means revealing another. Dhumavati obscures what is evident, what is known and comfortable to reveal, what is hidden and profound. She is also called Alakshmi, who is without light or radiance, or Jyeshta, or Nirriti, all Goddesses who are the incarnation of negative qualities but at the same time are worshiped in special moments of the year.

Dhumavati represents the original chaos and darkness that underlie creation. She is the void, in which all forms will be dissolved and where nothing can be differentiated. She is Tamas the power of ignorance that obscures the conscience and hinders the dynamism of manifestation.

Dhumavati is the representation of everything that hinders us in life. Her negative energies cause depression, sadness, illness, extreme poverty, fights, divorces, conflicts and endless quarrels. But what hinders us the most can sometimes release a new potential that makes us grow in a different direction. Thus she is considered by the spiritual seeker fortune that comes in the form of disgrace. For the Sadhaka She is the wise Divine Mother who teaches us detachment and transcendence, She is that knowledge that guides us to go beyond deceptive outward appearances and lets us focus on the inner Self.

Bagalamukhi

She who paralyzes the enemies

 

 

Bagalamukhi is dressed in yellow and sits on a golden throne surrounded by red lotus in the middle of an ocean. She has the moon as her diadem and is adorned with ornaments and yellow flowers (in particular the champaka flower). With one hand She grasps his opponent's tongue and paralyzes him and with the other he hits him on the head with her club.

Bagalamukhi is She who paralyzes the three worlds, is the fierce Goddess who stops every movement at the right time, with the Vak siddhi (the power of the word) silences the mouths and words of all evil beings and controls their tongues. It is She who gives power to dominate enemies, mastering all situations and power over obstacles.

Bagalamukhi is also known as Pitambara-devi or Pitambari, "She who wears yellow clothes". The yellow color is an integral part of the rituals dedicated to Her, so the Sadhaka wear yellow clothes to perform the ceremonies, the offers are yellow, use a rosary made of turmeric etc.

Bagala-Mukhi means She who has the head of a crane. The crane is a proverbial bird for its immobility in capturing prey and being a shrewd deceiver. We do not find iconographies of the Goddess that portray her with the head of this bird, but the crane is easily associated with the well-known Stambhana skill (stun or paralyze) of Bagalamukhi.

Other interpretations of Her name suggest that the word Bagala derives from the word Valga (which means bridle or to contain), which became Vagla and then Bagla.

Matangi

The Prime Minister of Lalita

 

 

Shiva is also known as Matanga, so one of the names of his Shakti is Matangi.

Matangi is the prime minister and advisor to Lalita Tripurasundari or Rajarajeshvari "the Supreme Sovereign of the Universe".

Her complexion is dark and has beautiful eyebrows. She has three eyes like lotus flowers and has the moon on his forehead. Her luster is similar to the blue lotus.

The iconographies paint her with different objects in her hands. In some She has a noose, a club, an ax and a hook. In others, a noose and a sword, a shield and a goad. In others it is highlighted her affinity with Sarasvati having in her hands the Veena, or holding a skull is highlighted her tantric nature.

Matangi is considered the tantric form of Sarasvati, the Goddess of all the arts, of wisdom and learning. Like Sarasvati, Matangi rules speech, music, knowledge and art. She is the form of Sarasvati oriented towards inner knowledge.

Matangi represents the teachings of guru and the tradition and the continuity of spiritual education in the world. She is therefore also associated with the Guru who, through the word, instructs us and shows us the way to the knowledge of the true Self.

It is also called Mantrini, the lover of the sacred mantras. She has power over all mantras, particularly in their vocalization and articulation. She gives us the ability to communicate with all the other Gods and Goddesses through the power of the mantra.

She is often associated with what is impure and at the margins of society. She is described as an outcast (Chandalini) and is also known as Uchchhishta-Chandalini because She accepts leftovers and partially eaten food (Uchchhishta) considered impure in classical Hinduism. But only a loving Mother accepts food from her son's mouth and does not have trouble eating leftovers. On the contrary, She feels a sense of pleasure in this intimate contact with her devotee.

Kamala

The Lotus Goddess

 

 

Kamala is the Lotus Goddess also known as Kamalatmika (She whose nature is the lotus). She is one of the forms of Sati (or Shakti, or Parvati) as are all the Mahavidya, but she is also strongly associated with Lakshmi the Goddess of beauty, wealth, fertility, love and devotion, consort of Vishnu. Kamala is the tantric Lakshmi, She is the aspect of Lakshmi which is part of the Goddesses of Knowledge.

Kamala is depicted as a young woman with a smiling face. She has four arms, in the two back hands, She holds a lotus flower and in the front hands She shows the Abhaya Mudra (removal of fear) and the Varada Mudra (bestowal of gifts). She is wet with the nectar sprinkled by four or two white elephants and stands on a beautiful lotus.

All her symbols indicate She as the Goddess of light, of splendor, of glory, of beauty, of grace, of beauty, of prosperity, of well-being, of good luck, of success, of good auspices, of wealth, etc. She has the power to create beauty and wealth around us. She is the Great Mother in her role of satisfying all desires and showing the full development of the power of the Goddess in the material sphere.

Kamala is similar to Lalita Tripurasundari as both dominate love, beauty and bliss. Lalita Tripurasundari governs the subtle and inner form of bliss born from the perception of the Self. Kamala governs the exterior form of beauty, not simply as pleasure, but as the blossoming of the divine nature in the whole creation. Through Kamala we can see the Divine Beauty in everything.
