WHAT ARE THE ATTRIBUTES OF MAHAVIDYAS ? ARE MAHAVIDYAS CONTROLLER OF TWELVE HOUSES OF A HOROSCOPE
ATTRIBUTES OF MAHAVIDYAS;--
08 FACTS 1.MA Kali is Adi Mahavidya, the primary Mahavidya. She is the first and the foremost among the Mahavidyas. She is not only the first but the most important of the Mahavidyas. It is said, the Mahavidya tradition is centered on Kali and her attributes. Kali is the epitome of the Mahavidyas. The rest of the Mahavidyas emanate from Kali and share her virtues and powers in varying shades. 2. The Mahavidyas, as a group, form a most wonderful assimilation of contrasting elements and principles in nature. They all are intensely feminine, asserting the supremacy of the female. One could say they are the ‘anti-model’ of traditional docile housewife. They totally reject every authority and any type of dominance. They aggressively put down and overpower male ego and its arrogance. Their agitation often transforms into dreadful wrath . And that truly underlines the nature of the Mahavidyas. 3. Though the Mahavidyas are female they are not depicted as a wife. In the hymns devoted to some Mahavidyas their male spouses are mentioned. But, that detail is never stressed. Mahavidyas are also not associated with Motherhood or fertility. 4-They defy traditional concepts about women. Mahavidyas are symbols of female independence; symbols of the ‘other’ ways of being feminine; the way that threatens the male. They are highly independent, rebellious, and stubborn; and over-domineering as if possessed of ferocious obsession to pulverize and grind the male ego into abject submission.
5-Their wrath burns down every type of male arrogance. Incidentally, it is said, each Mahavidya is so independent and exclusive that she relates only to just a few that are close to her, but not to all the Mahavidyas in the group.ACTUALLY SHIVA IS CONSCIOUSNESS ( SOUL ) ...WHILE MATA IS SHAKTI / BODY --GROSS & SUBTLE....& SOUL IS ALWAYS SUBJUGATED BY BODY..... 6- By all accounts, the Mahavidyas as a group and as individual deities are the most bizarre set of goddesses in any religion or in any culture. The Mahavidyas have fierce forms;terrifying demeanor;agitating minds; strange and exotic characters ; untidy habits; shocking behaviors; and destruction-loving nature. They enjoy strong association with death, violence and pollution.
7-Some of the Mahavidyas are ghoul ( interested in death ) like deities of cremation grounds and corpses, sporting wild disheveled hair, hideous features... In most cases they preside over strange tantric-magical rituals. It is their outrageous aspects that set them apart from the other deities. 8- Mahavidyas are thus a distinctive group of deities. They are far different from the deities worshipped in the polite society. The Mahavidyas giving way to violent emotional expressions are shown as performing loathsome, socially despicable roles, indulging in all that is forbidden in a normal society. And in fact, they challenge the normally accepted concepts and values in an established social order. They bring into question the very notions of beauty, goodness, honor, respect, decency, cleanliness and physical comfort etc.
THE DECODATION OF THEIR APPEARANCE;-
06 FACTS;-- 1-There is another way of looking at their forms that are often disturbing and difficult to bear. This perhaps was the way they were intended to look. Mahavidyas are not meant to be pleasant or comforting. 2-Their ambiguous, enigmatic, contradictory and paradoxical nature and behaviors are intended to shock, jolt and challenge our conceited way of looking at the world that keep us in bondage. They kick hard to awaken us; and point out that the world is really much different from what it appears to be; and it surely is not designed to satisfy our comforting fantasies. 3-Mahavidyas are ‘anti-models’, provocative energies urging us to shed our inhibitions, to discard our superficial understanding of beauty, cleanliness, goodness or the ’proper’ way of doing things. They, in their own weird ways, challenge us to look beyond; and to look deeper and experience what lies beneath the façade of the ordinary world. 4- Some scholars have therefore commented: “The key to the understanding or appreciation of the Mahavidyas lies precisely in their radical or outrageous aspects”. 5-Thus, in sharp contrast to the tranquil renderings of their abstract forms, the iconographic images of Mahavidyas portray their terrifying aspects and aggressive expressions.
5-From an aesthetic point of view Mahavidyas suggest a flight from reality and take you to a totally different world, which is poignant, restless and aggressive. The interesting aspect of the Mahavidyas is that the images seem to have sprung from intuition or from a non-rational source, and yet they bring home the realities of life.
6-Pointing out to reality is in the nature of Tantra outlook. Tantra takes man and the world as they are and not as they should be.....It is said; the images should be viewed in the light of the meanings which underlie and generate the image. In case, the image and its meaning are disassociated, it then becomes a mere repulsive( revolting)picture. ARE MAHAVIDYAS BLEND OF CONTRADICTIONS?--
05 FACTS;- 1-The Mahavidyas in general are a strange amalgam of contradictions: death and sex; destruction and creation. In her creative aspect, Mahavidya is an enchantress - 'the fairest of the three worlds', radiating her benign powers. In her negative aspect her intensely fierce nature is made explicit by her terrifying features. 2-But at the same time, every Mahavidya is neither totally negative nor totally positive. Each is a combination of many awe inspiring virtues and magical powers. From the gross descriptions of ferocious deities Kali and Dhumavati it might appear they are devoid of pleasing, benevolent and such other positive virtues.
3-But, their namavalis (strings of one thousand and eight names) sing and praise them as oceans of mercy. In contrast, Kamala, given her association with Shri, surprisingly, carries within her demeanor a few fierce or terrible aspects. The Mahavidyas cannot easily be classified as those that are strictly of fierce (raudra) or benign (saumya) nature. 4- A couple of the Mahavidyas are pictured as beauteous, amorous and benevolent. But in the ambience of death and destruction in which they are placed and in the overall context of the Mahavidya tradition, they are meant to be fearsome, demanding submission of the male. For instance, the beautiful goddess Tripura Sundari’s terrible form as Tripura Bhairavi is taken as her authentic Mahavidya aspect.
5-The Mahavidyas, when pleased, might bless an adept; but that is often by destroying or harming or suppressing the adept's enemies or opponents. Thus destruction is at times the Mahavidyas’ mode of blessing. ARE MAHAVIDYAS INDIVIDUAL OR GROUP?-
08 FACTS;- 1-The ten Mahavidyas as a group are powerful. But, individually only a few can assert themselves on their own might. The characteristics of certain individual Mahavidya does not coordinate well with the group-characteristics though the Mahavidyas are said to be emanations from Kali.
2-Further, the texts do not also explain the inter-relation between the Mahavidyas or whether each in some way is connected or related with the others in the group. The Mahavidya texts, however, hastens to explain that Mahavidyas are indeed a group; and, they all are emanations of the Devi. It is said; each of her Vidyas is great in its own right. 3-The notions of superiority and inferiority among them should never be allowed to step in. All are to be respected alike. The differences among them are only in their appearances and dispositions. 4-It is also said that Mahavidyas are indeed various expressions of the Mother: Kali is Time; Bhuvaneshwari is space; the piercing word is Tara; the flaming word is Bhiravi; and expressed word is Matangi. Chinnamasta combines light and sound in her thunderclap; Bhagalmukhi stuns and stifles the flow free flow of things. The luminous desire is Sundari; and the delightful beauty is Kamala. 5-It is said; the Sadhaka prays to MA Kali to grant him virtues of : the generosity ofMA Chinnamasta; the valor in battle of MA Bagalamukhi; the wrath of MA Dhumavati; the majestic stature of MA Tripura Sundari; the forbearance of MA Bhuvanesvari; and control over enemies like MA Matangi. 6- There are other explanations which came up much later. MA Kali is said to represent unfettered absolute reality; MA Tara an expanded state but yet bound by the physical; MA Bhagalamukhi the fierce concentration; MA Kamala and MA Bhairavi with satisfaction of physical wellbeing and worldly wealth; while the other Mahavidyas symbolize the worldly needs and desires that eventually draws into MA Kali. 7-Some of the Vidyas have common characteristics. For instance:Ma Kali,Ma Chinnamasta,Ma Bhagalmukhi and Ma Dhumavathi are characterized by their power and force - active and dormant. Ma Tara has certain characteristics of Ma Kali and certain others of Ma Sundari. And she is also related to Ma Bhiravi,Ma Bhagalmukhi and MA Matangi in aspects of sound-force (sabda) express or implied. Whereas Ma Sundari, Ma Bhuvaneshwari, Ma Bhairavi, Ma Matangi and Ma Kamala have qualities of light, delight, and beauty.
8-The Tantras speak of Ma Kali as dark, Ma Tara as the white; and Ma Sundari as red.But, the explanations offered, in most cases, contradict the others. The Mahavidyas and their natures cannot easily be categorized into well defined types. There is no convincing unified view of the Mahavidyas....

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; THE TWELVE HOUSES OF A HOROSCOPE & REMEDY;--
03 FACTS;- 1-Usually for reducing effects of 9 planets in vedic astrology, remedies like doing mantra japam directly for planet (like for saturn 19,000 times etc) is done.But its not giving desired results because these days 99% vedic astrologers dont know proper vedas.They are just taking the vimsottari dasa years number of each planet and multiplying by 1000....thats wrong ! 2-There are different numbers given for planets like for saturn its 23,000 etc.But remembering dasa number is easy for those people, so they employ such shortcuts and fail. In modern days karma is too strong and in almost all cases we fail to do any proper remedy. 3-Dasa mahavidyas are about outerspace adhi devatas, which are beyond 9 planets and their effects. Entering into this field needs guidance of proper guru and its a mystic area.So it cant be done by everyone. But with the help of Dasa mahavidya sadhna ;we can expect relief.
