Chinnamasta The Goddess Who Cuts Off Her Own Head

Chinnamasta The Goddess Who Cuts Off Her Own Head

Chinnamasta The Goddess Who Cuts Off Her Own Head

Chinnamasta is one of the ten Mahavidya or forms of the Goddess Parvati.She has one of the most notable iconographies in the Hindu pantheon as she is usually depicted with a severed head with blood spurting from her neck. She is said to be a goddess of contradiction, a giver yet a taker of life, as well as being an embodiment of death as well as immortality. The narrative goes that when Dakiki and Varini asked the goddess for food, she then cuts her head, where the three spurts of blood are then directed to the mouths of the other two, drinking her blood. This also represents self-sacrifice which is often associated with Chinnamasta, too.

This painting portrays that very scenario in vibrant color.True to Madhubani tradition, the painting utilizes natural colors such as orange, red, blue, and green. Her skin is usually depicted red or orange as a symbol for the hibiscus plant or the sun. Art usually depicts her naked with only jewelry to cover her genitals but this painting added a creative touch and clothed her with patterns and stripes in lively colors. The flowers surrounding her are lotuses. On her left hand is her head while on the right is a scimitar or blade.She is also sometimes depicted with a mundamala (or necklace of skulls) as a sign that she is an aspect of the Divine Mother.The goddess is also stepping on Kamadeva (god of desire) and his partner Rati (also a goddess of desire) who are engaged in a sensual union on a cremation ground. This represents the relationship between blood and sex to the flow of life.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
