Goddess Kameshwari

Goddess Kameshwari is a manifestation of Mother Goddess Shakti. She is closely associated with the Goddess Lalitha form. She is the queen of love. When Mother Goddess is Kameshwari, Shiva becomes Kameshwara, the lord of desire who is ever youthful.

Prayers, stories and worship of Goddess are mentioned in the Brahmanda Purana.

In some scriptures, Goddess Kameshwari is equated with Goddess Kamakshi.

There is a legend which states that once Brahma performed intense tapas to please Mother Goddess. She is said to have appeared before. Brahma called Her Kameshwari because her eyes were brimming with love for humanity.

Some scholars are of the view that Kameshwari is Kundalini – the psychic power coiled at the base of the spine as per yoga.

Goddess Kameshwari form is mainly worshipped in Srinagar and Kanchipuram.

Today, the true Sadhana of the Goddess is very rare and is mainly followed by rare Tantric followers.
