The Great Wisdom Mothers THE INNER YOGA OF THE MAHAVIDYAS
The Great Wisdom Mother Practice has it's origins in ancient India. It is the path of Shaktism, a bhakti path, devotion to God as Mother.
Shaktas believe, "the one Truth is sensed in ten different facets; the Divine Mother is adored and approached as ten cosmic personalities," the Dasa-Mahavidya ("ten-Mahavidyas"). The Mahavidyas are considered Tantric in nature, and are usually identified as:
Bhuvaneshwari – The Void, Fullness
Tara – The Goddess as Guide and Protector, or Who Saves
Kamala– Tantric Lakshmi
Bhairavi – Truth as Inner Light
Kali – Devourer of Time
Chhinnamasta – The Controller of the Granth Knots
Bagalamukhi – The Goddess Who Paralyzes Enemies
Sundari – The Goddess of Divine Nectar
Matangi – The Mother River
Dhumavati – The Void, Emptiness
The Movement Practice
Sacred Movement Ritual is a series of nine contemplations embodying the MahaVidyas. The movements or mudras, are expressions of their wisdom being felt and experienced through the body & consciousness. Each movement is a spiritual lesson, a doorway leading to the essence of the Divine Mother and the love she wishes to impart. The inner focus of this practice carries us to the oneness that is found in our heart.
