Whereas the Khanda represents Kalika. The worship of Devi in Shree chakra is regarded as the highest form of the Devi worship... Itis said that in the beginning God, who was one, wanted to become many and enjoy himself. As the first step to creation he created Devi - the total cosmic Female force. For the male part, out of his left he created Shiva, out of his middle he created Brahma and out of his right he created Vishnu. That is why many regard the Devi as more powerful than the Trinities and hence She is called Parashakti or Paradevi -Para meaning beyond. Chakra pooja or Yantra pooja Parashakti is shown holding the power of Mahavishnu to represent the force of righteousness which destroys evil in the form of Sudarshana Chakr. ਕੋਪ ਭਈ ਅਰਿ ਦਲ ਬਿਖੈ ਚੰਡੀ ਚਕ੍ਰ ਸੰਭਾਰ ॥ कोप भई अरि दल बिखै चंडी चक्र स्मभार ॥ Chandi in great anger, holding up her disc, within the enemy`s army; ਏਕ ਮਾਰਿ ਕੈ ਦ੍ਵੈ ਕੀਏ ਦ੍ਵੈ ਤੇ ਕੀਨੇ ਚਾਰ ॥੪੨॥ एक मारि कै द्वै कीए द्वै ते कीने चार ॥४२॥ She cut off the warriors into halves and quarters. ~Shri Dasam Granth Sahib Ji (SGPC translation) p. 186 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
