(Hindu Deity)DHUMAVATI

Also known as ALAKSHMI

The Goddess of cemetries, widows, darkness, and all that kind of thing. Dhumavati is one of the Mahavidyas - the Ten Wisdom Goddesses.

Once upon a time Dakshayani was so hungry she ate Shiva, which we feel was a little disrespectful, but the day went from bad to worse as he cursed her to look like an old hag and left her widowed in the form of Dhumavati.

She is the smoky form of Devi who baffles newbies and clouds issues, and represents the foggy-eyed fear of mortality, eternal hunger and thirst. Her black crow is a symbol of the darkest magic and she is always angry.

This may make her sound like a mentalist unstable witch, which she is, but those who can see through the buckteeth and boils and spot the divine mother within will be blessed with immortality.

Dhumavati is best worshipped nude... in the still of night ... in a graveyard. But don't tell anyone you read it here.
