 MOTHER BHAVANI OF TULJAPUR

She turned herself into rudraswarupini times umpteen to prove that abstinate perversity must be met with adamantine wrath; despicable bigotry, could be milled to powder with callous bigotry, and sadistic brutality must be made to bite dust with intractable stubbornness, aided by many more allied traits; and finally justifies that virtuous wrath alone offers right solution and can silence once for all injustice. And as such, it holds as much exalted status as that of any other in the navarasas. It sees not distinctions of sex, nor confined to place, nor abides by the restriction of time. End justifies means under certain extra-ordinary conditions, though Santarasa is preferable to roudra.

Mother Bhavani, the personification of ferocious wrath taking her abode in the hill temple of Tuljapur is jagrit - living deity and is ever alert to taking reprisal against the offenders. She tolerates not injustice meted out to any, by any, at any time and in any place. Legends embody numerous accounts of her taking revenge upon the iconoclasts and wicked invaders through her human agency. This mother animated the ordinary, sublime, simple men into roaring lions by igniting virtuous wrath embedded in their hearts and became instrumental in founding empires.
