Chhinnamasta Mahavidya is the incarnation of Mother Goddess Shakti that appeared before the Devas, or Demi Gods, who sought for a wife for Shiva. Chinnamasta is one of the Dasa Mahavidyas – the ten goddesses. Chhinnamasta means ‘She whose head is severed.’
The text of the Gupta Lalitambika desribes Goddess Chinnamasta as follows: “She who is the embodiment of virtue, love, humanness, anger, valiancy, terror, odiousness, mysticism, humor and tranquility all put together.” It is quite a neat description of the Goddess. The name by itself connotes ‘one with the severed head’. She is refered as Prasanda Chandika and comes 6th in line of the ten Mahavidyas. There is mention of the Goddess in not only Hindu texts but also Buddhist Tantric scriptures. She is also called Vajreshwari and is likened to the thunderbolt of Lord Indra. Her eyes are expressive and some devotees also call her Indrani. Those who follow her become inspired and courageous.
