According to tradition, when Goddess was engaged in a bloody conflict with Durgasur, she let forth several types of energy (known as Shakti) from her body.
To battle Durgasur and his army, these Shakti Devis released powerful energy in the form of fireballs. (Chapter 72 of Kashi Khand). The war was finally won.
The Shakti Tripura Bhairavi is one among them. Worshipers of this deity will succeed in their endeavors and develop mental fortitude. Only a few gods are still around today out of the more than 90 different types of Shaktis. One or two of their idols are inside private homes where public worship is prohibited, and many of their temples or idols are no longer in use.
Bhairavi means “horror” and “beyond fear of death.” Bhairavi is derived from the words ‘bharana’ (to generate), ‘Ramana’ (to safeguard), and ‘Vamana’ (to disgorge). The cosmic functions of creation, maintenance, and annihilation are as follows. She is the fifth Mahavidya and one of the most powerful and renowned Goddesses.
Goddess Bhairavi is the Hindu Goddess of deterioration and, as a sparsha devata, she enjoys the interaction. She is also known as the Wisdom Goddess.
The universe depends on both creation and annihilation. Bhairavi personifies the notion of annihilation. She represents the transition that occurs as a result of the devastation, which is not always negative. She is also visible in self-destructive behaviors, such as consuming tamasic food, which is associated with ignorance and lust.
Sri Tripura Bhairavi’s idol is Swayambu (self-manifested). Along with enlightenment, the mother is said to bestow happiness and fortune on her worshipers. The statue of the mother in a very soulful pose, visible from the street, is located in this little shrine, in front of the main gate.
