BHUVANESHWARI: An embodiment of space !
The element of space is less discussed unlike other four elements. Space element is very vast when compared to other elements. Space is the mother of all elements and its quality is sound and reverberation. From space comes the air, from air the fire, from the fire comes the water and from water connects to earth. These are not just the connections but purely an add ons, to make it more clear; space is vast and has only the quality of sound. Next comes air which has sound and feel. Next comes the fire which has sound, feel and touch. Next comes the water which has sound,feel,touch and smell. Last but not the least comes earth which has sound,feel,touch,smell and taste. Every human beings born on earth, in their childhood would have wished to eat soil. This is not a crazy thought but it is the connect we have with this earth.
To all these 5 elements space is the mother element. In human body each element controls various emotions and organs, which is scientifically proved by many institutions. The space element in human body controls the every desire and enthusiasm. For the word space itself signifies its importance on our lives. It is the most overlooked element. We need space in our head to think, we need space in our houses to keep things, even simple we need space to even run tech’s. So the very concept of space is what keeps us going tirelessly. A person stressed is due to the imbalance of this element. Goddess Bhuvaneshwari represents the element of space. She is not real but the reality itself. Bhuvaneshwari is the principle diety of shambavi peetam and the gurus are said to be the masters of this element, making them more related to reality. Bhuvaneshwari is not an diety to be worshipped rather than a way to attain the maturity that truly transforms and transcends the self.
