Kamakhya Puja

Kamakhya Puja

 

Kamakhya is one of the 51 sakti peeths and most popular in India. Kamakhya Devi is more powerful as the yoni of mata Sati had fallen there and is being worshipped in Kamakhya temple. It is also believed that this place is the centre point of whole universe. Das Mahavidyas (Kali, Tara, Shodasi, Bhuvaneswari, Chhinamasta, Bhairavi, Dhumavti, Bagalamukshmi, Matangi, and Kamala) are also worshipped in Kamakhya temple complex.

 

The most important part of the temple is situated in a cave almost 20 feet below from the ground. There is no image in the cave; a yoni shaped cleft is worshipped there with flowers, saree, chunri, sindur and prasad. A sanctum natural spring that flows through the Yoni is considered very powerful and is believed blesses with final emancipation that is Mokshya. Tantriks are come here to achieve their desired success as Kamakhya Devi is the goddess of tantras. And a tantrik feels incomplete without visiting this temple once in life.
