Chapter 3 – Bhandasura Vadham
Naama Manthram : 64 to 83 (20 Naama)
Divine mother revealed her divine form to the devotees who were pleading with her for protection from Bhandasuran.
Bhandan was born from the ashes of Manmathan. One of Siva’s Gana-pathy Chithragaman collected the ashes and made a human male form, thereafter Brahma named him Bhandan (means Good). To show gratitude, Bhandan pleased Lord Siva by chanting various Manthras and Slogas and received blessings. After some time, Bhandan decided to do penance (Thapas) and got boon from Brahma that he can be killed by only a female sakthi. This made him egoistic and forget his purpose of life. Bhandan started giving lots of trouble to all good people and conquered all three Realms viz. Bhulok, Swargam and Paathaal. His Kingdom is known as Sonitha Pura.
As per the supplication by devotees, divine mother had to kill him with the help of various divine Sakthis.
I consider Bhandan as our Soul (Jeeva – who is always good but due to ignorance it lives in a body and starts giving trouble to itself as well outsiders). After one’s death and cremation (The burned Manmatha, primary representative of free will to attract and control anyone in this universe), nature will reward a human body for the departed soul and the transmigration continues until it gets absorbed by the Divine Mother Paramathma from where all movements (Primordial Force) takes place. Jeeva, the Purusha (Male) joins Param Purusha or Para Sakthi (Female). End of the human body is the beginning of the divine journey. Please note body is completely different from Soul (Jeeva). Mortal Body can be male or female form, but the residing Jeeva/Soul is always Purusha to be realized through various divine practices.
Summary: The afflicted ignorant Jeeva (Bhandan) gets the help of Divine Mother to be united with Her and free from transmigration called Salvation.
