Once, Goddess Parvathi wet to have a bath in Mandakini River together with her two companions. After the bath the Goddess was thinking about the concepts of creation and life (sex). Meanwhile, her two attendants became hungry and beg the Goddess for some food. She consoled and asked them to wait until they reached home. But when they started pleading again and again she cut off her own head from the neck region and made the blood to come out in three jet forms. One of these blood streams is entered in to the mouth of her severed head while the remaining two spurts are directed to the mouths of her companions which enabled them to quench hunger. After this sacrifice the Goddess Parvati is renowned as Goddess Chinnamasta.
She stands on Kama and Rati who are join in sexual intercourse. Rama and Rati represents sexual desires, sexual energy, sexual force.Chinnamasta thus symbolizes self control which must be achieved before one undertake yogic practices. Her control of lust is represented by her standing on Kama and Rati and her perfection to self surrender, fearless to death and self sacrifice. The copulation couple too can symbolically represent the rhymatically flow of energy via sex and blood. The sexual aspect convey the vital energy that pumps up through Chinnamasta, having her blood spurs from the severed head, life force leaving the body but instead stream into the mouth of her devotees and into her own mouth too.
The eyes have prominence importance in hindus. The eyes of the diety informs us that it is not only us looking at the diety, but the diety is looking back at us. Therefore the eye contact between the devotees and deity is exchanged through the eyes.
Chinnamasta is said to have three eyes : right, left and a center
which is also known as the third eye or the eye of transcendent
knowledge. These three eyes represents : the moon, the sun and the fire.
