Origins of Kumbh Mela.

The oldest foundation of the Kumbh Mela is portrayed in the Vedic writings of India as being developed from past days when the demons and the demigods created the nectar of immortality. It is stated that the demons and the demigods gathered on the coast of the milk ocean that is situated in the celestial area of the cosmos. The demons and the demigods came up with a plan to churn the milk ocean in order to create the nectar of immortality. Afterwards, they made an agreement to share the nectar evenly as soon as it was created.

The Mandara Mountain was utilized as the churning rod for churning the milk ocean and the king of serpents, Vasuki became the rope for churning. When the churning commenced, the Mandara Mountain started to submerge deep into the ocean and Vishnu incarnated as a mighty tortoise and sustained the mountain on his So, with the demons at Vasuki’s head and demigods at his tail, they churned the milk ocean for one thousand years.
The churning of the milk ocean initially generated a fatal poison that Shiva consumed without being affected. When Shiva drank the poison, some of it fell from his hands and were consumed by snakes, scorpions, and other lethal creatures. After Shiva consumed the poison, several magnificent items were generated. Initially, a Surabhi cow materialized which could produce limitless magnitudes of milk. Afterwards, a white horse called Uccaihsrava was then brought into being, along with a white elephant called Airavata. Then a precious gem is known as the Kaustubha-mani also appeared.
After all these occurrences was the apsaras, stunning dancing girls and a multitude of other amazing things emerging from the milk ocean. Finally, a male being named Dhanvantari came into sight holding the pot of immortal nectar in his hands. Seeing Dhanvantari with the pot of nectar, both the demons and demigods became apprehensive. The demigods were fearful of what would take place if the demons consumed their portion of the nectar of immortality and by force took hold of the pot.
Severe fighting broke out wherever the demigods went with the pot of nectar. In an effort to keep the nectar from the demons, the demigods concealed it in four places on the earth, Prayag (Allahabad), Hardwar, Ujjain, and Nasik. At each of these hiding places, a drop of immortal nectar dripped from the pot onto the earth. These four regions from then are said to have attained magical power.
After some time, the demigod’s overt woman, Mohini-murti advanced towards the demons. When the demons set eyes on the delightful splendour of Mohini-murti, they lost all self-control. Seeing her pleasant smile, slender hips and her overall beauty, the demons totally forgot about consuming the nectar of immortality. While the demons were baffled by her magnificence, Mohini-murti snatched the nectar and took it back to the demigods, who drank it right away.
Kumbh Mela received its name from the immortal Pot of Nectar portrayed in olden Vedic scriptures called the Puranas. Kumbha in the Sanskrit language denotes ‘ pitcher or pot and Mela signifies ‘festival’. Therefore Kumbh Mela basically represents the festival of the pot, or in this instance, a festival that commemorates the materialization of the pot of nectar.

WHO IS BAGALAMUKHI (PITAMBARA)?


Bagalamukhi is the Eighth Mahavidya 

Bhagwati Bagalamukhi (बगलामुखी), Bagala or Maa Pitambara  (माँ पीतांबरा)  is the eighth Mahavidya in the famous series of the 10 Mahavidyas. 

The word “BAGALA” is a distorted form of Valga, meaning that bridles or reins, like horses, are placed in and around the mouths of animals to control them. Mukha means face. BAGALAMUKHI is thus understood as the one who canShe has a golden yellow colour and is therefore also known as Pitambari or Pitambara Maa. Pita is yellow).

Expounding the good power of the Goddess Baglamukhi the text Mantra Maharnnav (मन्त्र महार्णव) states -“The Mantra of the Goddess has the facility of the divine weapon Brahmastra instilled in it and the Goddess simply strikes terror in and paralyses the enemies of her Sadhaks. Repetition of her Mantra is enough to prevent even a tempest.”

Bagala (the Goddess who seizes the Tongue): She is identified with the second night of courage and is that the power or Shakti of cruelty. She is described as the Devi with three eyes, wearing yellow clothes and gems, the moon as her diadem, wearing Champaka blossoms, with one hand holding the tongue of an enemy and with the left spiking him, thus do you have to meditate on the paralyser of the three worlds. 

She rules magic for the suppression of an enemy’s gossip. These enemies even have an inner meaning, and therefore the peg she puts through the tongue could also be construed as a peg or paralysis of our own prattling talk. She rules deceit which is at the guts of the foremost speech. She can during this sense be considered as a terrible or Bhairavi sort of Matrika Devi, the mother of all speech. 

According to “Todala Tantra”, her male consort is Maharudra. Seated on the proper of Bagala is that the Maharudra, with one face, who dissolves the universe. The pulling of the demon’s tongue by Bagalamukhi is both unique and significant. The 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 demon’s tongue is therefore symbolic of the Goddess removing what’s in essentiality a perpetrator of evil.

Bagalamukhi has Hypnotic Powers.  

Bagala may be a Goddess of speech, and intrinsically is said to Tara and considered a sort of her. When sound becomes manifest as light, Tara becomes Bagala. When the brilliant light of speech comes forth, then Tara gains the effulgence of Bagala and cause all things to become still. Bagala is thus the stunning radiance that comes forth from the Divine Word and puts the human or egoistic word to rest.

Bagala gives an influence of speech that leaves others silent and grasping for words. She gives the decisive statement, the irrefutable conclusions, the pronouncement of ultimate truth. Hence she is propitiated for fulfilment in discussions and debates. No one can defeat her because she has the true power of Self-nature.

The weapon that puts an end to all or any conflict and confusion is that the weapon of spiritual knowledge, the weapon of Brahman (Brahmastra). The highest sort of Brahmastra (ब्रह्मास्त्र) is the question “Who am I?” or “What is the Self?”

Bagala turns each thing into its opposite. She turns speech into silence, knowledge into ignorance, power into impotence, defeat into victory. She represents the knowledge whereby each thing must in time becomes its opposite. As the still point between dualities, she allows us to master them. We contact her grace once we see the other hidden in each situation and are not any longer deceived by appearances. To see the failure hidden in success, the death is hidden in life, or the joy hidden in sorrow are ways of contacting her reality. Bagala is that the secret presence of the other wherein each thing is dissolved back to the Unborn and therefore the Uncreate.

Bagala is another of the frightening sorts of the Goddess. Her colour is yellow. She is clad in yellow clothing and is adorned with yellow ornaments and yellow flowers (particularly the champak flower). With her left, she catches hold of her opponent’s tongue and together with her right, she strikes him on the top together with her mace. She sits upon a golden throne surrounded by red lotuses. By some accounts, she wears the crescent moon as a jewel on her head.

Who is Shri Tripura Sundari?

The 3rd Mahavidya “Shri Tripura SundariThere are ten Mahavidyas. The Shodashi(षोडशी) or Tripura Sundari is The third Mahavidya. Bhagwati Lalita Tripura Sundari (भगवती ललिता त्रिपुर सुंदरी) is the main deity of Shri Yantra (श्रीयन्त्र). The goddess Tripura Sundari is depicted in her Shodashi (षोडशी) aspect as a sixteen-year-old girl and is believed to represent sixteen kinds of desires. Tripura Sundari, also known as Shodashi, Lalita (ललिता) and Rajarajeshvari (राजराजेश्वरी).

Shodashi (the goddess who is 16 years old): It is the climax of the creative cycle when the entire universe is in full bloom like a flower. She is the presiding Deity of the Shri Vidya form of worship and is contacted either in the central circuit of the Shri Yantra or in your own yantra, the Nava-Yoni Chakra. Her anthropomorphic characteristics are brilliance, manifestation, sweetness, depth, fixity, energy, grace and generosity. She is sitting on the lotus that has blossomed out of the navel of Lord Shiva is a beautiful young girl of 16 years with four arms. Her complexion is like molten gold and Her beauty is continuously seen by Lord Shiva. At one point, she is being made one with Goddess Lakshmi, Lord Vishnu’s consort. 

 Bhagwati Tripura Sundari (त्रिपुरसुंदरी)  – The Beauty of the Three Worlds 

Sundari is no ordinary beauty. She is the most blissful and beautiful of all goddesses as she represents the ultimate bliss at the source of all joys. The highest beauty does not reside in any object, although it is not separate from objects. The highest beauty is perception: “to hold the Infinite in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour,” as the poet Blake so eloquently wrote. Beauty is derived from the light of consciousness that radiates through objects. It is never really contained in any object. Therefore, beauty can never disappear, but rather The light of beauty that we see in things is, therefore, the light of our own consciousness. By discovering it, we contact the sources of infinite delight within us. This is part of the Sundari revelation.

 The beauty of perception occurs only when the mind is cleansed of the known when the consciousness is cleansed of its conditioning and rests in pure consciousness without any memory residue. Then everything we see radiates with the light of eternity and is effulgent with the glory of our own Self as the Universal Self. Otherwise, the residue of our thoughts and emotions, like a dark film, obstructs the subtle and transparent beauty and presence in things, even though we can clearly perceive their physical characteristics. 

 Sundari represents the ultimate beauty of pure perception that arises when we see the entire universe in ourselves when we see all of nature as a reflection of the reality of consciousness. Sundari is, therefore, the beauty of nature but as seen through the spiritual eye of oneness – the view that the entire universe is Brahman (ब्रह्म) – there is nothing but God above, below, within, without, north, south, east or west, past, present or future. Sundari, therefore, is the Goddess of Vedantic knowledge, which is the knowledge of the Supreme or Divine Being. She teaches us that everything is the self and that the world is Brahman or the Absolute. From her perspective, Samsara is Nirvana (निर्वाण); the world of illusion merges with the Absolute. Hence, she is the most beloved Goddess form among Swamis and Vedantic Masters. She represents the knowledge of the Supreme Being. 

 The entire universe exists for the delight of consciousness, which is the game of the Divine Mother. Creation arises in joy and returns to joy. We are passing figures in the eternal game of it, who have not yet understood the source of the energy that Our pain and suffering is a delusion, a misconception born of ignorance and ego. Because we try to control or possess joy from the standpoint of the separate self, we separate ourselves from the true joy that is universal. the image of joy shows us the way out of our error, which is not denying ourselves happiness but discovering the true happiness we seek, which is to be one with everyone. Lalita awakens the receptive soul to the happiness that underlies everything. things.

 The great Yantra or energy pattern that underlines the entire universe, arising from the ॐ mantra. She is the deity who lives on the summit of Mount Meru, the cosmic mountain or the mountain of the spine, and gives the commands through which the entire universe moves. She is the divine love, which is the central motivating force behind the universe and which is the original impulse in our own hearts.

Sundari is also called Rajarajeshvari or “the highest ruler of the universe”. All the commands that govern the universe arise from it, including the command that enables us to develop spiritually or to give spiritual teachings in the world. We must seek their command in order to do something meaningful in life. However, their command is not based on authority but on love. To get their approval we just have to be open to their love. What she allows us is to love her and to love everything. However, in order to discover their commands, we must be willing to give up our own selfish desires and try to control things. Tripura Sunday is often depicted as a young girl at the age of 16. As such she is called “16” (षोड़श) or “the young girl” (बाला). It is at this stage of a woman’s life that the delightful aspect of her existence is most pronounced. It is their nature to play, seek new experiences and charm others. Your innocence attracts all that is true and good. Sunday is the power of consciousness, Chit Shakti. It is the consciousness of the Supreme Self, Paramatman(परमात्मन), as one with the Supreme Reality or the Absolute,(परब्रह्म). Because of true knowledge, it is called, Samvit (संवित)  which is the power to understand all things as consciousness itself. Bhagwati Lalita is thus the power of spiritual knowledge (ज्ञान शक्ति), which is more a question of feeling and perception than of thinking and analysis is. That is why she is the form of the goddess most worshipped by those who follow yoga. Bhagwati Shodasi is the form of the goddess who represents the pure consciousness and the bliss that flows from it. It combines the being of Kali (काली) with the knowledge of Tara (तारा) and adds the bliss dimension of spiritual realization.

Shri Yantra explained by Shri Anantbodh Chaitanya

What is Shri Yantra explained by Shri Anantbodh Chaitanya?

The Sanskrit term Shri yantra originates from “yan” or “yam” meaning “medium” and “tra” meaning “instrument” or “tool”. Here Shri represents wealth and Yantra is an instrument, apparatus or an amulet endowed with protective powers, its ultimate purpose is to unite us with our higher selves.


Shri Yantra holds supreme status among all mystic sciences and disciplines. Tantric gurus have collectively declared Shri yantra as the best medium for manifestation and wish fulfilment.
The Shri Yantra is considered to be the tool for obtaining and fulfilling all worldly desires and material manifestation. The Shri Yantra is a mathematically precise design and based upon Golden Proportion or Phi ratio. Everything that exists in nature, is constructed in the proportionately precise manner and this proportion is called the Golden/Phi ratio. The Shri Yantra means “holy instrument” and can also be known as the Shri Chakra or “holy wheel”. It contains all form of sacred geometry/golden ratio is mathematically precise and can also represent the union of the Divine Masculine and Feminine (The upward triangles meeting the downward triangles).


Shri Yantra has nine triangles that can be interlaced in such a way as to form 43 smaller triangles like a web; this web can be symbolic of the entire cosmos.

Staring at the central dot or ‘Bindu’ of the Shri Yantra is known and proven to create changes within the brain and the stimulation of the Pineal gland by focusing our attention on the ‘3rd eye’ area. The Pineal gland is a small endocrine gland in the brain. It produces melatonin, a serotonin derived hormone, which affects the modulation of sleep patterns in both seasonal and circadian rhythms. It’s the shape resembles a tiny pine cone (hence its name), and it is located in the epithalamus, near the centre of the brain, between the two hemispheres, tucked in a groove where the two halves of the thalamus join. 


The typical Shri Yantra with its central point (Bindu) and concentric circles of petals and other geometries are conceived of as a sacred dwelling in which the presiding deity and their entourage take up residence. So you move through each layer pay attention to what elements are being brought in.  Look at the number behind each of the segments like the 9 strings or why are there 4 triangles for the Shiva and Shakti.  
The Bindu represents the location of the highest manifestation of the deity as well as the focal point through which the deity transcends the relative plane, with its form and structure to merge into the formless consciousness.  To help visually understand, the Bindu is the centre of the Shri Yantra and the dot is the symbol of AUM – it represents the piercing, breaking or bursting through (Bindu Bhedana) and it is the final stage.  This is the very same formless consciousness in which the devotee merges with the highest truth.  The Shri Yantra is then fully activated in its Divine nature and reveals the true potential and nature of the devotee in this merging and loving Shri relationship with the Divine as the divine.


The Shri Yantra (called the Shri Chakra) is the symbol of Hindu Tantra also, which is based on the Hindu philosophy of Kashmir Shaivism.


The Shri Yantra is the object of devotion in Shri Vidya. The Shri Chakra is also known as the Nava chakra because it can also be seen as having nine levels. “Nine” comes from “Nau or Nava” of Sanskrit. Each level corresponds to a mudra, a yogini, and a specific form of the deity Tripura Sundari along with her mantra. These levels starting from the outside of the bottom layer is:


1.Trailokya Mohana or Bhupara, The earth square of three lines with four portals. This chakra fascinates the worlds. It has a mudra we call Sarva Sankshobhani mudra. Dram is the Beeja mantra of this mudra.


2. Sarva Aasa Paripuraka chakra a sixteen-petal lotus. It fulfils all desires or hopes. There is also a mudra we call Sarva Vidravani mudra. Dreem/Drim is the Beeja mantra of this mudra.


3. Sarva Sankshobahana chakra an eight-petal lotus. It is quite agitating. The mudra name of this chakra Sarvaakrshini mudra. Kleem is the Beeja mantra of this mudra.


4. Sarva Saubhagyadayaka chakra, composed of fourteen small triangles. It confers all good fortunes. It has Sarva Vashankari mudra. Bloom is the Beeja mantra.


5. Sara Arthasadhaka chakra, composed of ten small triangles. It fulfils all expectations. It has Sarvonmalini Mudra. Sah is the Beeja of this mudra.


6. Sarva Rakshakara chakra, composed of ten small triangles. It saves the devotee from all troubles. It has Sarva Mahankusha mudra. Krom is the Beeja mantra of this mudra.


7. Sarva Rogahara chakra, composed of eight small triangles. It removes all diseases. It has Sarva Khechari mudra. Hasakhapharem is the Beeja mantra.


8. Sarva Siddhiprada chakra, composed of 1 small triangle. It confers all fulfillments. It has Sarva Beeja mudra.  Hasoum Beej Mantra.
