 INTRODUCTION

Tantra Chudmani, one of the Tantric treatises, after due discussion and deep research furnishes 52 Sahkthi-Peethas inclusive of the Asthadasa Sakthi-Peethas, the widely accepted and largely visited kshetras of our Punya Bharat down the ages. Despite contradictions still rising their heads, the list of 52 Shakthi-Peetas is generally accepted for visitation and adoration, both by laymen and savants. Pilgrimage to them is reverentially undertaken to partaking the bliss they confer. Lifting the veil of mystery shrouding over them seems to be the staple food for the sustenance of intellectuals and academicians, and how long their hair-splitting arguments producing more sound than light continues is not known to themselves even. Have we to wait? No, Better enter into every mandir for the drsan of the Mother Sati manifested in multifarious forms and auspicious names and offer ritualistic worship in consonance with the prevailing traditions of the locality and time. For us, the spot of the peetha supposed to have blessed with the falling of Mother's bodily part, and the god-men who installed statues for public benefit is all the more important than any other factor, since the divine vibrations emanating from them anoint the bodies and afford a soothing comfort, if devoutly approached and soulfully prayed for.
