Dhumavati Jayanti – Dhumavati Mahavidya Jayanthi

Dhumavati Jayanti is believed to be the day when Goddess Dhumavati, a fearsome aspect of Goddess Shakti appeared on Earth. Dhumavati Jayanti 2018 date is June 20. It is observed on the eighth day of the Shukla Paksha or waxing phase of moon in the month of Jyestha. Dhumavati is the seventh Mahavidya among the 10 Mahavidyas.

Dhumavati is depicted as an ugly old lady who rides a horseless chariot. She is sometimes depicted as riding a crow. Symbolically, she asks the human beings to look beyond the superficial and understand the Supreme Truth from which all beauty and ugliness arise.

Dhumavati is propitiated by Tantric practitioners to overcome troubles in life and to fulfill their desires. There are very few temples dedicated to Goddess Dhumavati.

Hinduism lives because it has no physiological limits

Hinduism lives because it has no physiological limits, like that of an organism which takes birth, grows, decays and dies. Its eternal components being truth, righteousness, and cosmic order, it may well be called the homage of Divinity to itself.

It is eternal for not being static and for its ability to become new again, as per the explanation of the word ‘Sanatana’ given in the Atharva Veda.

Sanatanam enam ahuh uta adyah syat punarnavah (Atharva Veda, X. 8. 2.) – They proclaim Him to be eternal. But He may become new again even today.
