Maa Bhuneswari Devi

Bhuvaneshwari is the Queen (Ishvari) of the phenomenal world (Bhuvan). It is the prime force Parashakti, which manifests herself as the phenomenal world. As a queen, she is interested in the welfare of her subjects and resides in the hearth chakra.

Once Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva quarreled over who was supreme. When the quarrel became too serious, the Divine Mother took them to her abode, where they saw themselves as three women attendants, taking care of creation, preservation and destruction.

Bhavneshwari is one of the ten Mahavidyas - the others are Kali, Tara, Shodashi, Bhairavi, Chinnamasta and Dhumavati, Matangi, Kamala and Bagla Mukhi. The Mahavidyas represent some or other incarnation or manifestation of the Divine Mother. They are in this sense also to be regarded as Vidyas or different approaches to (tantric) knowledge.

Her bija sound is the same as that of Maya. Through the worship of Bhuvaneshwari the divine plan is realized and the illusionary nature of Maya becomes the play of the divine Leela. This brings a deep change in the emotions and in body chemistry.

Goddess Bhuvaneshwari
The name of the Mahavidya itself means the ruler of the world and a Sadhak of Bhuvaneshwari is always victorious on all fronts in life and becomes all-powerful. Even Ram had to propitiate the Goddess before defeating Ravan who had conquered even heaven.

A Sadhak of Bhuvaneshwari gains a mesmerising personality that draws all people to him and makes them readily obey his command. Diseases, enemies and problems are forever banished from his life and he has unexpected and huge monetary gains. Such a person conquers all problems in life - even the danger of untimely death. He leads a joyous family life and gains fame and respect nation and world wide. Whatever he wishes for is fulfilled, for he is bestowed with 64 divine virtues which help him succeed in every venture that he undertakes. He becomes a virtual Man of his Age. This Sadhana can be started on first day of any month.
