Dasa Mahavidya

Dasa Mahavidya Temple

Delve into the profound realms of worship, where Lord Shiva's tranquil presence beckons seekers to embrace stillness and surrender to timeless rituals. Rooted in Tantra Shastra, the ancient wisdom unveils three sacred vidyas—Hadi, Kali, and Sadi, each carrying its own lineage and traditions. Matsyendranath's propagation of the Kaula Chara tradition underscores the timeless pursuit of spiritual enlightenment. Above all practices, the Dasa Mahavidya stands supreme, offering seekers a path to complete spiritual fulfillment.

Meanwhile, the divine mother Goddess Shakti guides seekers through varied practices, accompanying them on their spiritual journey. Worship of Shakti and Shiva, the presiding deities of each planet, promises solace from Navagraha dosham, while the Dasa Maha Vidyas, representing ten divine manifestations, illuminate the path with their unique wisdom, all emanating from the eternal wisdom of Adi Shakti.

Dasa Mahavidya - Incarnation

Once, when Daksha Prajapati failed to extend an invitation to Satidevi and Maha Rudra for a grand yagna, Satidevi pleaded with Maha Rudra multiple times to attend. However, despite her earnest requests, Maha Rudra remained enraged. In response, Satidevi herself became furious, leading to the incarnation of Dasa Mahavidya surrounding Maha Rudra, who sat facing west. The powerful Mahakali Mahavidya and Chinnamasta Mahavidya stood before him, while Bhagalamukhi Mahavidya stood behind. The divine mothers, representing various aspects of cosmic energy, encircled Maha Rudra in each direction, along with the Navadurgas manifested by Parvathi Devi for the world's benefit.

Thus, Satidevi, also known as Adishakthi, embodied the formidable form of Dasa Mahavidya, marking a pivotal moment in divine mythology.

Important Note

Only from Siddhagurus or Enlightened masters should a seeker learn the worship of these deities. He should become a disciple and follow the Guru's instructions exactly as they are. Dasa Mahavidya mantra contains the word 'Beejakshara,' that ought to be chanted flawless.
