Dus Mahavidhya - The ten forms of Shakti
1) KALI : The Eternal Night - Kali is mentioned as the first amongst the Mahavidyas. Black as the night (ratri) she has a terrible and horrific appearance. The word ratri means to give, and is taken to mean the giver of bliss, of peace of happiness.
2) TARA: Tara is described as seated in the pratyahara asana, on the heart of a corpse, supreme, laughing horribly, holding cleaver, blue lotus, dagger and bowl, uttering the mantra Hum, coloured blue, her hair braided with serpents, the Ugratara. She bestows all supernatural powers.
3) CHHINNAMASTA : The Goddess who cuts off her Own Head - The image of Chinnamasta is a composite one, conveying reality as an amalgamation of sex, death, creation, destruction and regeneration. It is stunning representation of the fact that life, sex, and death are an intrinsic part of the grand unified scheme that makes up the manifested universe.
4) SHODASHI TRIPURA SUNDARI : The Sixteen Years Old Goddess. The third Mahavidya is Shorashi (16-year-old lass), also known as Tripura-Sundari and Lalita, among a string of other names. She is the zenith of the creative cycle when the entire universe, like a flower, is in full bloom. She is the chief deity of the Sri Vidya form of worship, and is contacted either in the central circuit of the Sri Yantra, or in her own yantra, the Nava-Yoni Chakra. Her anthropomorphic qualities are brilliancy, manifestation, sweetness, depth, fixity, energy, grace, and generosity. She is seated on the lotus, that has bloomed out from the navel of Lord Shiva. She is a beautiful young girl of 16 years with four arms. Her complexion is like molten gold and Her beauty is continuously being viewed by Lord Shiva.
5) BHUVANESHWARI : The Creator of the World - The beauty and attractiveness of Bhuvaneshwari may be understood as an affirmation of the physical world, the rhythms of creation, maintenance and destruction, even the hankerings and sufferings of the human condition is nothing but Bhuvaneshvaris play, her exhilarating, joyous sport.
6) TRIPURA - BHAIRAVI : The Goddess of Decay - Bhairavi embodies the principle of destruction and arises or becomes present when the body declines and decays. She is an ever-present goddess who manifests herself in, and embodies, the destructive aspects of the world. Destruction, however, is not always negative, creation canwithout it.
7) DHUMAVATI : Dhomavati ( The Goddess who widows Herself ) she is the embodiment of unsatisfied desires. Her status as a widow itself is curious. She makes herself one by swallowing Shiva, an act of self-assertion, and perhanot continue ps independence.
8) BAGLAMUKHI : The Goddess who seizes the Tongue and enemies - The pulling of the demons tongue by Bagalamukhi is both unique and significant. Tongue, the organ of speech and taste, is often regarded as a lying entity, concealing what is in the mind. The Bible frequently mentions the tongue as an organ of mischief, vanity and deceitfulness. The wrenching of the demons tongue is therefore symbolic of the Goddess removing what is in essentiality a perpetrator of evil.
9) MATANGI: The Compassionate Goddess. Matangi. Dusky, beautiful browed, her three eyes like lotuses, seated on a jewelled lion-throne, surrounded by gods and others serving her, holding in her four lotus-like hands a noose and a sword, a shield and a goad, thus I remember Matangi, the giver of results, the Modini.
10) KAMALA : The name Kamala means she of the lotus and is a common epithet of Goddess Lakshmi. Lakshmi is linked with three important and interrelated themes: prosperity and wealth, fertility and crops
