Geführt von Shiva und Vishnu konzentrierten sie ihre Kräfte auf die Erscheinung von Bhairavi. Die Kraft von Shiva formte ihren Kopf, die von Yama ihr Haar, Vishnu ihre Arme, Indra ihre Taille. Alle Gottheiten übergaben ihr ihre Waffen. Sie wählte den Tiger/Löwen als ihr Reittier. In langen Schlachten besiegte sie die Gegengottheiten und am Ende deren König Mahisha, in Form eines Büffels, nachdem sie ihn in vielen Erscheinungen bekämpft hatte..Sie  besiegt ihn, schlägt ihm den Kopf ab und heißt danach Durga Mahisasura-Mardini, die Schlächterin des Mahisasura.

BHAIRAVI   ii

Bhairavi is a fierce and terrifying aspect of the Devi virtually indistinguishable from Kali, except for her particular identification as the consort of the Bhairava.

She is also called Shubhamkari, good mother to good people and terrible to bad ones. She is seen holding book, rosary, and making fear-dispelling and boon-conferring gestures. She is also known as Baala  or Tripurabhairavi. It is believed that when Bhairavi entered the battle field, her horrible appearance made the demons become weak and very feeble, and it is also believed that most of the demons started panicking as soon as they saw her. The consort of Goddess Bhairavi is Bhairava  an aspect of Shiva.

Bhairavi is seen mainly as the Chandi in the Durga Saptashati version of slaying Shumbha and Nishumbha. However, she kills and drinks the blood of Chanda and Munda the Chieftains of asuras, so the Goddess Parvati gives her a boon that she would be called Chamundeshwari. In other forms, she is also identified with Parvati or Durga. When furious, she is found sitting on a faithful donkey, with her mouth full of demons’ blood, her body covered with a tiger skin and skeleton. She also presents the abhaya mudra and vara mudhra, and she is shown holding weapons such as a trident, axe, and thunderbolt.

Bhairavi is also a title for a female adept in Kundalini Tantra. A Yogini is a student of Tantra, or an aspirent. A Bhairavi is one who has succeeded. Supposedly there are many more levels of achievement than these two, but Tantra is, in essence, a mystery religion, and one would have to be initiated, to learn them all. The name “Bhairavi” means “Terror,” or “awe-inspiring,” so the one who has achieved the state of Bhairavi, is beyond the fear of death, and therefore awesome.

Many South Indian Temples are dedicated to Bhairavi as Baala Tripura Devi. One of the famous shrines of her is in Jagannath Temple, Puri as Vimala. The Vimala temple is also known as a Bhairavi temple. In Brahmayamala Tantra Vimala is regarded as the Shakti of Purusottama Kshetra.
