On the tantric path the divine feminine, SHAKTI, plays an important role in the spiritual awakening. The 10 Mahavidyas or Great Cosmic Powers are called the wisdom goddesses (”maha” means great and ”vidya” means wisdom) and they inspire and challenge the spiritual aspirant towards achieving the ultimate spiritual goal as well as being a daily guiding companion on the path.

CHINNAMASTA – The Cosmic Power of Infinite Courage
CHINNAMASTA, the Great Cosmic Power of endless Courage and transcendence of the ego. She manifests the supreme self-sacrifice: the cutting off of the head (the mind/ego) in order to discover what is beyond, instantly taking you beyond all limitations!
CHINNAMASTA manifests the true spiritual heroism, boldness and bravery. She helps the aspirant to immediately overcome tormenting and negative resonances, such as fear, anxiety, being stuck in the mind, temptations, demonic attacks, enabling us to achieve a heroic attitude, to look our fears and inner demons in the eye and with an instant enlightening flash of clarity and superior perspective severing their influence over us and setting us free.
CHINNAMASTA awakens in us an attitude of self-sacrifice, courageously and joyfully giving up everything which holds us back, daring to step into the unknown, to be without the apparent safety of the mind or anything familiar, in order to be able to rise to a new level.
The divine anger (oriented against all evil but especially against the ego) is the specific energy of CHINNAMASTA, which can act instantaneously and produce sudden transformations and change of perspective. She is known as the most efficient protector against any negative influence and the most fierce enemy of the ego.
