Maa Vindhyavasini Dhaam

On the banks of the holy river Ganga, rests the Vindhyavasini Devi Temple and is at a distance of 8km from Mirzapur. Here presides the Vindhyavasini Devi and on top of it, it is also one of the most revered Shakti Peeths known till date. Large mobs come here to visit the goddess and seek her blessings daily and ask for forgiveness for their sinful acts. People believe that Vindhyavasini Devi bestows benediction with no delay. With this faith, this place sees no isolation ever.


The mythological king of Ayodhya, Lord Ram performed few rituals in here on the Ganga river banks and this place is therefore known as the Ramgaya. Hence, when the pilgrims are done with the darshan of Shreeyantra, they must pay a visit to Ramgaya, which should be followed by a visit to the holy shrine of Mahatara, who is the goddess of tantra as per the beliefs and rituals. Once all of these places are paid a visit, one should head towards seeking the blessings of Lord Hanuman, who guards the eastern gate to Vindhyacha. On the eastern angle of the temple abodes the holy tricone, which is an exquisitely decorated and ornamented Devi Mahalakshami. As per the Devi Puran, the related stories and description of 108 Shakti Peeths is mentioned. It says that lord Vishnu cut the body of Sati into 108 parts with his sudarshan chakra. These parts fell at 108 different places on earth, with each part forming a Shakti Peeth and the Vindhyavasini (Mahalakshami) abode being one, is praised a lot. In her quest of eternal beauty attainment, Goddess Lakshami had worshipped Tarakeswar Mahadev at Tarkapuri, Vindhyachal when she bathed in the holy pond that was dug up by the demon king, Tarak. Post the holy bath, the Goddess Lakshami had undertaken Lord Shiva’s worship (tapasya) at Narayan Sarovar for long ten thousand years. Lord Shiva being pleased with her rigorous tapasya, blessed the Goddess Lakshami and established her as the presiding deity of Vindhyachal.


No matter how mythological the story is, the Vindhya Triangle (Tricone) has quite much of relevance to the depiction. Mahasaraswati’s shrine lies on one point of the pious tricone. The Goddess Mahalakshami, who is the goddess of learning and wealth, abodes on the other point. And, on the remaining point of the tricone, rests Goddess Mahakali, who is the destroyer of evils. The pilgrimage is to be commenced from the right side and must finish at the start point. Thus, the actual tricone pilgrimage is to be commenced from the Ashtabhuja (Mahasaraswati) and must end there itself. The Mahalakshami (Vindhyavasini) sits at the Tricone-Yantra’s eastern point.  On the southern point sits Goddess Mahakali and the Western point is for Mahasaraswati (Ashtbhuja). This is how the entire representation of the tricone yantra is depicted and the visitors follow the processes just the way they are meant to be.
