Why Some Images Of Goddess Bhadrakali Has Dots Or Poxes On Her Face? – Story

You might have noticed some images of Goddess Bhadrakali having dots or poxes on her face. There is an interesting story as to why she has poxes only on her face. The story is associated with wife of Demon Mahishasura found in folklore especially in North Kerala. Manodari, the wife of Demon Mahishasura, performed intense austerities to please Shiva. Her sole aim was to avenge Goddess Bhadrakali who had killed her husband. Shiva was not ready to appear before Manodari but Goddess Parvati insisted that He should appear before the wife of the demon. Shiva decided to appear only for a few seconds.

By asana one is freed from the tortures of duels such as pleasure and pain, profit and loss, etc. (Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra II.46-48).

One of the asana is samasana. Its importance is that it is a substitute or an alternative for two major postures, viz., padmasana and siddhasana.

Whatever we think or do is not lost; though apparently non-existent, it remains in the subconscious mind and then wakes up in the conscious plane. After repeated conscious acts we acquire a tendency. Each habit is a resultant of one class of impressions: suppose we read fiction or go to a certain place or talk or play every day, after a few days it becomes a habit, sometimes so strong that we find great difficulty in shaking it off. This resultant of past impressions has been given various names in Hindu scriptures as daiva (supernatural), adrishta (unseen) or niyati (destiny). When people find it beyond their power to check the course of habit, when they see it impossible to get mastery over their lower n
