Goddess Bhuvaneshwari (Mahavidya Bhuvneshvari)

Goddess Bhuvaneshwari is the fourth of the dasa mahavidyas who gives shape to the creation of the world. Goddess Parvati is the Sagun roop of Goddess Bhuvaneshvari. Her name itself means the ruler of the universe. She is the cosmos personified as Goddess. Worshipping her promotes a cosmic vision and absolves us from the narrowness of opinion and belief. She gives us world vision and a sense of the infinite.

She is also known as Maya which means illusion. When things are measured , we are in their limited forms and forget the underlying unitary space in which they appear. This is how illusion arises. We must understand that all manifest forms are merely waves in the infinite space of the Divine Mother. She is often depicted as having a crescent moon on her head with four hands and three eyes. In her two hands she holds the noose and the goad. With the other two hands, she gives the gestures that grant boons and dispel fears.

There are many temples dedicated to Goddess Bhuvaneshwari. The most important shakti peetha is located in Nainativu in Sri Lanka. Also the Utkala brahmins of Orissa worship her as the patron goddess of Bhubaneshwar.The Srividya upasakas also worship her as kamakhya and in south India she is also worshipped as Chandi.

Mantra for worshipping the Goddess Bhuvaneshwari:

She is worshipped with a single syllable Hirim which is one of the most important mantras. It is called the Devi Pranava or the equivalent form of Om for the Goddess.
