|In-depth explanation on Daśamahāvidyā|
The term " Daśa Mahāvidyā " is derived from the Sanskrit words "Dasa," meaning "ten," "maha," meaning "great," and "Vidya," which translates to "knowledge." The Shakta Maha-Bhagavata Purana depicts the advent of the Mahavidyas, which took place in the divine celestial realm known as Deva Loka.
The Daśamahāvidyā, which translates to "Ten Wisdom Goddesses," are revered as powerful forms of the Divine Mother Kali. Each of these goddesses possesses her own distinct name, story, quality, and mantras. These ten divine beings wield tremendous power, guiding individuals towards liberation and enlightenment. Furthermore, they possess the ability to fulfill the mundane needs of human life.
In the profound world of Tantra, the worship of Devi-Shakti takes center stage in a practice known as Vidya. Among the myriad tantric rituals, the Daśa Mahāvidyā emerges as a remarkable path of devotion featuring the worship of ten powerful Goddesses. Unveiled within the sacred pages of the Todala Tantra, these magnificent forms consist of Kali, Tara, Maha Tripura Sundari, Bhuvaneshvari, Chinnamasta, Bhairavi, Dhumavati, Bagalamukhi, Matangi, and Kamala. Each of these ten aspects encapsulates the essence of creation itself, embodying the power of Shakti.
The worship of these Devis can be done in different ways, such as simply reciting the mantra while worshiping the yantra for astrological purposes. Or, it can be done with elaborate tantric rituals to achieve various spiritual goals. The successful practice of these Vidyas grants many blessings. A Tantrik Yogi who uses these blessings for the greater good becomes a guide for others. However, those who become egotistical and use the blessings for personal gratification often turn into fake gurus, attracting followers solely for their own gain.
