𝚃𝚑𝚎 𝚂𝚎𝚕𝚏-𝚂𝚊𝚌𝚛𝚒𝚏𝚒𝚌𝚒𝚗𝚐 𝙾𝚗𝚎

With skin as red as the colour of the hibiscus flower, and with dishevelled hair, 𝑪𝒉𝒊𝒏𝒏𝒂𝒎𝒂𝒔𝒕𝒂 𝑫𝒆𝒗𝒊 possesses a blue lotus near her heart. In her hand she also carries a knife, along with her own severed head. A serpent is draped around her neck, like a sacred thread. She also dons a garland of severed heads, bones and other ornaments around her neck.𝑪𝒉𝒊𝒏𝒏𝒂𝒎𝒂𝒔𝒕𝒂 𝑫𝒆𝒗𝒊 is also depicted with her left foot  positioned in a manner that shows she is always ready to keep moving forward, never looking back. 

One of her attendants, 𝑫𝒂𝒌𝒊𝒏𝒊, is light-skinned and represents the 𝑻𝒂𝒎𝒂𝒔 𝑮𝒖𝒏𝒂(ignorance, inertia, laziness), another attendant, 𝑽𝒂𝒓𝒏𝒊𝒏𝒊  is red-complexioned and embodies the 𝑹𝒂𝒋𝒂𝒔 𝑮𝒖𝒏𝒂(passion, activity, movement). Despite all the disturbing imagery, Chinnamasta Devi is considered 𝑺𝒂𝒕𝒕𝒗𝒂 (goodness, calmness, harmonious). All three individuals are interdependent, and together, they create a  well- balanced, continuous cycle of the flow of life and death.

This Divine Goddess is a representation of the awakening of the 𝑲𝒖𝒏𝒅𝒂𝒍𝒊𝒏𝒊 (connection with that divine essence). The Devi is deemed as being severe on herself as she sacrifices her head. This however, is symbolic of her immense control of all Gunas(as seen in her symbolic stance). She is considered a 𝒀𝒐𝒈𝒊 (ascetic) of the finest order. 

Severing her own head displays the quality of separting all emotions from duty, leading to complete spiritual advancement. She is called a pure 𝒀𝒐𝒈𝒊𝒏𝒊.
