महाविद्या छिन्नमस्ता 

Chhinnamasta mahavidya

 

Chhinnamasta Worship is mainly performed for getting a son, to remove poverty, to gain wisdom, to destroy enemies and to be a poet. Chhinnamasta is associated with the concept of self-sacrifice as well as the awakening of Kundalini. Chhinnamasta is also called Chhinnamastika and Prachanda Chandika.

 

Chhinnamasta Origin

 

In a story from the Shakta Maha-Bhagavata Purana, which narrates the creation of all Mahavidyas including Chhinnamasta, Sati, the daughter of Daksha and the first wife of the god Shiva, feels insulted that she and Shiva are not invited to Daksha's yagna ("fire sacrifice") and insists on going there, despite Shiva's protests. After futile attempts to convince Shiva, the enraged Sati assumes a fierce form, transforming into the Mahavidyas, who surround Shiva from the ten cardinal directions. Chhinnamasta stands to the right of Shiva in the west. 

 

Chhinnamasta Dhyan

 

Her left foot forward in battle, she holds her severed head and a knife. Naked, she drinks voluptuously the stream of the blood nectar flowing from her beheaded body. The jewel on her forehead is tied with a serpent. She has three eyes. Her breasts are adorned with lotuses. Inclined towards lust, she sits erect above the god of love, who shows signs of lustfulness. She looks like the red China rose. - Chinnamasta Tantra 

Her mantra as per Mantra Mahodadhi is:


"Om Shrim Hreem Hreem Aim Vajra Vairochaniye Shrim Hreem Hreem Phat Svaha"

ॐ श्रीं ह्रीं ह्रीं ऐं वज्र वैरोचनीये 
श्रीं ह्रीं ह्रीं फट् स्वाहा ॥

It yields all desired benefits quickly.
