The Dasha Mahavidya
also known as the Wisdom Goddesses
Listen, O Devi, I will speak concisely of the essence of
yoga. The body resembles a tree, with the root above and the branches below. In
the macrocosm there are tirthas (bathing places) which also exist in the body.
The macrocosm is like the microcosm. - Todala Tantra, II
Mother Kali is the most famous of the tantrik Goddesses
and first of the ten Mahavidyas. She is viewed with fear by the ignorant but
with love by those who wish to conquer their fears. She is my life and I dance
to Her rhythm, everything that I do and say is in Her name. Shri Param Eswran
1 -Mother Kali and time - goddess who dispels darkness. Time is both
creation and destruction. To create we must first destroy. To bring the new into
being, we must first let go the old, and it is she who will help you remove your
entire past trauma and weakness. Mother Kali is also worshiped as air or the
Mother Kali, our Master grand Mother is located in the Heart Chakra, the seat of
the air element or Vayu. Kali relates to the physical heart also, which
circulates the life force, and to the blood itself that carries the life force.
In this form she is called Rakta-Kali or red Kali. Mother Kali thus is the
pulsating of the heart. In her higher and benefic form as Bhadra (auspicious)
Kali she is located in the spiritual heart center, on the right side of the
chest. Here she is the giver of the highest transformation, which is
Self-realization. She is the combination of the supreme and middle forms of
speech whereby the outer and the inner are mediated through the heart.
Tara - The term Tara means the deliverer or savior, from the Sanskrit
root tri, meaning, "to take across," as to take across a river, the ocean, a
mountain, or any difficult situation. Goddess Tara is called upon in emergencies
or at crossroads where we require guidance as to which way to turn. She favors
and fearlessness, protection and destroys obstacles, purification,
transformation and feminine nature.
Tara relates primarily to the Navel Chakra, which is the center for the third or
illumined state of speech (Pashyanti). Her other center is the tongue. Yet
because she is the rising sound current that leaps upward from the navel center,
she is not limited to this location. As Om or the guru she relates to the Third
Eye. She is thus the rising current from the Navel Chakra to the head.
Tripura Sundari the most beautiful goddess in the three worlds, also
the main goddess of the SriChakra. She thus is the Goddess of Vedanta knowledge,
which is the knowledge of the Supreme Self or Divine I AM She is the supreme
ruler of the Universe, also known as Rajarajeshvari. From her arise all the
commands, which govern the universe, including the command, which allows us to
unfold spiritual or to give spiritual teachings in the world. She is also
knowledge and consciousness.
She is the deity of the Crown Chakra or thousand-petalled lotus, the abode of
the immortal nectar (amrita). By her grace the nectar descends and comes to
pervade the entire body, until we find the entire body, until we find the entire
universe dwelling within it.
Bhuvaneshwari is known in the Vedas as Aditi, the infinite or
indivisible Mother, the great origin and cosmic womb, who is space. In her as
genesis and origin all light is born. Hence she is the Mother of the Sun and all
Sun Gods who are named after her (Adityas). She creates space in order to give
birth to all things. Similarly she creates space within our own consciousness to
give birth to the divine nature within us.
She represents the Void or original space in which things come into being. She
is the Void in its creative form, the void within creation, form which creation
springs and which supports the unfoldment of future creation. She is not the
void that is prior to and beyond creation (which is Dhumavati)
Bhairavi represents the supreme power of speech, which has the nature
of fire. She is the Word in its unarticulated and primal form of raw energy, the
flaming word, which appears like a pillar or a sward to remove all opposition.
She is supreme light and heat power, the flame of consciousness itself (Cidagni),
which is the ultimate knowledge of truth.
She dwells at the base of the spine in the Root Chakra, (Muladhara). She is the
same as Kundalini, most specifically in her awakened role as the purifier of our
nature. Unless we are ready to deal with Bhairavi we should not try to arouse
the Kundalini into action.
Chinnamasta, whose image is a severed head, is the Goddess who causes
us to cut off our heads or to dissolve our minds into pure awareness. She brings
transcendence of the mind and represents the non-mind (unmana) state. Freed from
the limitations of the mind, consciousness realizes its true nature beyond death
She relates to the third eye (Ajna Chakra), which is her chief place of action.
She represents the opened Third Eye from which comes lightning of direct
perception that destroys all duality and negativity. As the upward movement of
the Prana she is associated with Udana Vayu, the upward moving of the vital
airs, which the yogis seek to develop. Her perceptive power can be taken to any
centre or chakra to perceive its nature and function.
Bagalamukhi, Bagala is a Goddess of speech, as such is related to Tara
and regarded as a form of her. When sound becomes manifest as light, Tara
becomes Bagala. When the brilliant light of speech comes forth, then Tara gains
the effulgence of Bagala and causes all things to become still. Bagala is thus
the stunning radiance that comes forth from the Divine Word and puts the human
or egoistic word to rest.
Bagala relates to the soft palate, the place called Indra-yoni, which is the
middle point between the senses of the eyes, ears, nose and tongue. The soft
palate is related in function with the third eye, and so Bagala like Chinnamasta
is associated with this chakra. Concentration on the point of the soft palate
gives control over the senses and vital energies (Prana)
8 -. Dhumavati the elder among the Goddesses, the Grandmother is the
elder form of Kali, Kali as an old woman. She represents time or the life force
dissociated from the process of manifestation. She is the timeless, which never
really enters into the process of time. She is not revealed in the ordinary
world but present as s background screen or smoke that helps us see beyond the
evident forms around us. Those who are trying to ward off negative influence
should worship her. She gives transcendence and freedom, returning us to the
condition prior to the arising of any negative forces.
Dhumavati is another goddess that relates to the heart or the middle region.
9 - Matangi, wisdom, learning, teaching and hence the very voice of the
guru or inner guide Mother Matangi relates to Sarasvati, the Goddess of wisdom
and the consort of Lord Brahma, the creator of the world. She rules over audible
sound in general, not just the spoken word. She is the manifest from of song.
Like Sarasvati she is symbolized by the rain cloud and by the thunder, as well
as the rivers pouring into the sea. Mother Matangi rules over the extraordinary,
which takes us beyond the bounds of the conventional.
Mother Matangi resides in the Throat Chakra, the center of speech. She also
resides on the tip of the tongue, the place wherein speech is articulated and
wherein we are able to taste the essences of things. There is a special nerve or
channel of the subtle body called Sarasvati that runs from the Third Eye to the
tip of the tongue, which relates to her. This is the stream of inspiration from
the mind to its expression via speech. She represents the flow of bliss through
this channel, which makes up poet-seers of the divine with all the powers of
Kamala, beauty, abundance, splendor, devotion, surrender, and
refuge. She is the one to whom one worship for financial abundance Mother
Kamalatmika like Mother Sundari rules over love, beauty and bliss. She governs
the outer form of beauty, not merely as pleasure but as the unfoldment of the
Divine nature into the realms of action and creation. Mother Kamala thus relates
to the Earth, which contains the maximum manifestation of the Divine in the
material world. The Earth Goddess, Bhu Devi, is considered to the second consort
of Lord Vishnu. Mother Kamala is the Goddess who will bless us with material and
She is located in the heart, specifically the Heart Chakra of the subtle body,
which is the place of devotional worship. She is the image of the heart's
delight and the heart's wish for perfect beauty and happiness. We should
visualize this perfect fulfillment as the Divine grace that naturally comes to
the heart of all beings.
In addition we have installed Lord Ganesh, Lord Nadaraja,
Lord Ganesh, Lord Dakshinamoorthi, Lord Kalabhairava, Planet Saturn.
In the near future we will like to install the following:
Prithvi; earth Goddess, will be installed in the Garden,
so that our society will open their hearts and once more learn to nurture and
care for her, for the plenty that she provides for us.
Annapoorna; giver of food (she will be installed in the food hall)
to sponsor a piece of the Temple
