Tripurasundari Mahavidya

Goddess Tripurasundari is one of the dasamahavidyas who is the Goddess of Srichakra. She is also known as Goddess Rajarajeshwari meaning the one who rules the universe. She is said to rule the three cities of Tripura. But in actual these refer to the three aspects of physical , subtle and supreme deities and she controls all of them.

Tripurasundari is the power of spiritual knowledge which is more a matter of feeling and perception rather than that of thought and analysis. Hence she is the form of Goddess most worshipped by Sri Vidya upasakas or the practitioners of Srividya. She represents pure consciousness and the bliss that flows from it. She combines the being of Kali with the knowledge of Tara and adds the bliss dimension of spiritual realisation.

The Bindu or the centre point of the Sri Chakra is the symbolic representation of the cosmic spiritual union of Shiva and Shakti. Apart from that the Sri chakra also embodies countless number of deities and represents the whole of creation.Hence by worshipping the Devi in Sri Chakra, one is actually worshipping the highest ultimate force in the Tantric form.

She is also worshipped as Goddess kamakhya in many parts of the world. One of the famous kamakhya temples is in Assam.

She is commonly worshipped with the chanting of Lalitha sahasranama in many parts of the country. However Sri chakra upasakas worship her with the shodashi mantra which is very closely guarded among the sri chakra worshippers.Even the mantra shashtra prohibits from giving the mantra to outsiders and hence people worship her with the general mantras. Mantra for the kamakhya Goddess is given :

Kamakhyam kama sampannaam kameshvarim harapriyam

kaamanaam dehi me nityam kameshvari namostute

kamakhye varade devi neelaparvata vasini

tvam devi jagatam mata yoni mudre namostute
