MOTHER CHAMUNDESWARI OF MYSORE

The Mahishasuramardini thus enthroned herself is called by a different name - Chamundeswari. It has another exhilarating episode connected with it. Varahapurana narrates that there were born once from Sri Krishna's left eye in Goloka eight Bhairavas - Ruruvu, Samhara, Kalu, Asitu, Krodhu, Bheeshana, Mahabhairava and Khatvanyu. They caused suffering to mankind in several ways. Pitying the victims, Mother Trikala - a form of Eswar sakthi killed Ruruvu, the worst of the lot by pealing his skin and slitting mundu-torse with utmost ease. She was then named Chamundi. So the Devi who slit the head of Mahishasura was reverentially called Chamundeswari. What-so-ever be the name, it was Saktiswarupini who killed Mahishasura. That Mahishasurapura underwent countless changes in shape, size, splendour during the yugas followed, but the hill enshrining Chamundeswari is remaining unchanged, rather it is glorified with sculptural and architectural embellishments by the worshippers, who were immensely benefited by her munificent boons as rewards for their devotion.
