Sri Bhuvaneshwari: 4th Dasa Mahavidya: Queen of the Spiritual and Materialistic Universe

Sri Bhuvaneshwari is the mother of the solar system and the creator of material space. She is the fourth tantric goddess of Dasa Mahavidya, an aspect of Kali, the terrifying form of Shakti. The Indian Vedic Story is so enticing that it makes you swirl in its narrative when you read it. We have read about the Tridev and their female counterparts, the Tridevi: Lakshmi, Saraswati, and Parvati. However, ancient scripture encourages the wisdom seeker to read and understand Devi Shakti. The reversed sages believe that feminine energy is the seed of all creation in Hinduism.

Sri Bhuvaneshwari is the source of truth and maya—the great illusion. She sustains and protects the three worlds—heaven, earth, and space.

Origin of Sri Bhuvaneshwari

When the whole universe was in darkness Surya, the sun god, appeared in the heavens. The sages begged for the ultimate energy source to create more worlds to live in.

Lord Surya was pleased with the devotion of the sages. He created the three worlds. The Supreme Energy appeared in the form of Bhuvaneshwari and protected the newly built worlds.


Once, Lord Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva quarreled to know who was the supreme among them. The event became too serious and unresolved.

Thus, Goddess Bhuvaneshwari took the Trinity into her abode and allowed them to find themselves as three women attendants of creation, preservation, and destruction.

She is the bija mantra of the Maya. She makes living beings realize their true nature and helps them fade out the illusionary Maya to connect with the ultimate energy source.


As the popular Vedic Story, the goddess Bhuvaneshwari emerged from the cosmic ocean to help Lord Shiva in the battle with the demon Andhaka. She protected and provided her energy to Lord Shiva and restored balance in the universe.


In another wonderful myth, the goddess Bhuvaneshwari once appeared before Lord Brahma. She requested that the creator of the universe grant her the power to govern the entire universe. Lord Brahma granted her wish, and thus Goddess Bhuvaneshwari became the embodiment of the universe.

It is also believed that Goddess Bhuvaneshwari has taken the form of the Goddess Earth to govern the elements. She is responsible for fertility, abundance, and growth.

As per the Rig Veda and Puranas, she is connected with the Varaha Avatar of Lord Vishnu and helped him make the earth fertile with the iccha shakti or desire.
