Kamakhya Temple Das Mahavidya Puja - Origin Of 10 Mahavidya

Kamakhya Temple Das Mahavidya Puja - Origin Of 10 Mahavidya

The “Brihat Dharma Purana” describes the mythology of how these ten “figures” appeared. According to this mythology, Sati, wife of Lord Shiva, wanted to go to her father’s house, because her father, Daksha, was organizing a huge “yagya” (fire sacrifice). Daksha invited everyone except Lord Shiva and daughter Sati. Furious, Sati insisted on attending the sacrifice, in spite of Shiva forbidding her from doing so. Her anger transformed Sati into a terrible presence, which multiplied into the ten Mahavidya. These Goddesses jointly subdued Shiva’s resistance and thereby, Sati proceeded ahead to attend the sacrificial ritual.
