Goddess Dhumavati is often named as the seventh Mahavidya. Once, Mother Sati asked Lord Shiva to feed Her as She was very hungry. When Shiva didn’t pay much attention to Her requests, the Goddess eats Him to satisfy her extreme hunger. Lord Shiva then requested Her to leave Him and She agreed to do so as She was in a guilt of eating Her own husband. Shiva then rejected her by cursing her to assume the form of a widow. Another oral legend tells that Dhumavati was created by Mother Goddess Durga, in the battle against demons Shumbha and Nishumbha. Dhumavati’s literal name (“she who abides in smoke”) comes from her ability to defeat demons by creating stinging smoke.
This form of mother Goddess is very helpful to win over any enemy or to get rid of even the most evil spirits. When most horrific demons failed miserably before the Goddess, than how can our enemies, who are just human beings, even dare to come in front of person who is guarded by the Mother Goddess.
Provided below is a very significant Sadhana which should be performed to get rid of all sorts of enemies and to bring peace and harmony in life. Dhumavati’s outer inauspicious, fearful form reveals the dangers of considering sensory pleasures as fulfilment-giving. The winnowing basket, used to separate the husk from the grain, symbolizes the need to separate the outer illusory.
Dhumavati is described as a bestower of supernatural powers, a rescuer from all troubles and a granter of all desires and rewards, including ultimate knowledge and nirvana. Her worship is also prescribed for those who wish to defeat their foes. It is a myth that Dhumavati’s worship is considered ideal for unpaired members of society, such as bachelors, widows, and world renouncers as well as Tantrikas. Like any other form of the Goddess, worshiping Mother Goddess Dhumavati is considered fruitful for all the people.
It is incorrect to associate Mother Goddess Dhumavati with only inauspicious qualities, her thousand-name hymn relates her positive aspects too. She is often called tender-hearted and bestows boons. Dhumavati is described as a great teacher, one who reveals ultimate knowledge of the universe, which is beyond the illusory divisions, like auspicious and inauspicious. Her ugly form teaches the devotee to look beyond the superficial, to look inwards and seek the inner truths of life.
Presented below is a very powerful Sadhana procedure which is small and highly effective to get rid of even the most powerful enemies from life. One can also perform this Sadhana if the person is facing any malefic alignment of planets too, which might result in some sort of disaster in life.
