Sri Tripura Bhairavi Mahavidya

Tripura Bhairavi is the goddess of war and a fierce deity. She is the ruler of the whole creation and 9th among the Dasa Mahavidya. She is renowned as Chandraganta among the Navadurgas. She has two aspects: spiritual and material. Materially, she is the shakti of Lord Bhairava.

Bala Tripura Sundari’s second layer is Tripura Bhairavi. Bala Tripura Sundari herself appeared as a praudha (grown-up) woman, the Tripura Bhairavi. Aim means Bala girl between 8 and 15), sauh means Praudha, the mature woman, the Tripura Bhairavi.

Bhairavi comprises three words: Bha, ra, and Va. Bha means Bharanam, Ra means Ramanam, and Va denotes Vamanam. Bharanath means creativity; Ramanath means preservation, protection, and ruling this universe; Vamanath means annihilation. In one word, she is the creator, preserver, and destroyer of this universe. Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu, and Lord Rudra are confined to only one creation. She rules the whole creation.

In the spiritual sense, Tripura Bhairavi is the embodiment of the Kundalini shakti. She stays in Mooladhara Chakram in a dormant state. When she gets awakened, she creates rigorous movement in the body and unifies with Shiva in the sahasrara chakram. Being the Kundalini Shakti, she wears serpents. She is the presiding deity for Paravak out of four Vaks: Para, Pashyanti, Madhyama, and Vaikhari. The word associated with this paravak is OM. She shows you God by merging you with him. She is emerged from the sea of milk as presecribed in her Ashtottara shatanama stotram.

Tripura Bhairavi conducts affairs in five forms: The first form is Poorva Simhāsana Bhairavi Devi, also regarded as Sampatprada Bhairavi, the bestower of wealth and prosperity. She stays in the east and is the presiding deity. Lord Indra and Lord Brahma primarily worshipped her. She also has two angles: Chaitanya Bhairavi and Nityaklinna Bhairavi. The second form is Dakshina Simhāsana Prauda Bhairavi. She stays in the south and is worshipped by Lord Vishnu who destroyed enemies worshipping her. ‘Hasakala Reem’ is her mantra.

The third form is Pashchima Simhasana Shaṭkūṭa Bhairavi or Nitya Bhairavi. She stays in the west and is worshipped by Lord Rudra. ‘Hasrau sahasakala reem sahrauh’ is her mantra. The north-presiding deity is Bhuvaneswari Bhairavi, (differs from Bhuvaneswari Mahavidya). The upward-pointing deity is Annapurna Devi. In this way, she remains in all directions of this creation like a Shiva Lingam.
