The Bahula Shakti Pith Temple, one of the 51 enshrined sites dedicated to Maa Sati, is situated in Bhardhaman district near Katwa in West Bengal. As legend has it, when Lord Vishnu sought to help soothe Lord Shiva’s pain by cutting off Goddess Sati’s body with his ‘Sudarshan Chakra’, her left arm fell at this very spot and thus a temple was erected here.

The Bahula Temple is a marvel of ancient architecture that embodies tranquility. Step into the courtyard and you will be welcomed by majestic red stone flooring, mantras fill the air as temple bells chime; this divine atmosphere envelops one in serenity and faith—it’s here where God can truly be attained.

The left arm of Maa Sati is said to have been cut down by Lord Vishnu’s Sudarshan Chakra in Ketugram when he attempted to save the world from Shiva’s destructive dance. The Sanskrit word ‘Bahu’ translates to ‘arm’, while ‘Bahula’ means lavish and symbolizes the bounty that this goddess brings. Thus, Bahula is worshipped alongside Bhairav Bhiruk – two incarnations of Mahadev and Mata Adi Shakti respectively. Notably, the term ‘Bhiruk’ stands for an individual who has reached a profound state through meditation or ‘sarvasiddhayak’.

The Bahula Shakti Peetha is renowned as a place where devotees are never denied; believers who come to her with true devotion in their hearts, can expect that she will hear and answer their prayers. Countless miracles have transpired here – the sight of Devi Bahula along with her sons Karthikey, god of fertility and war, and Ganesha rules over this divine realm — evoking an atmosphere of auspiciousness and blessings throughout.

To honor Shakti, the divine Mother Goddess, Lord Brahma conducted a sacred yajna. Upon completing it with success, the Great God Shiva and his consort Shakti emerged from this ritual – She was so powerful that she aided Brahma in creating the universe itself! Knowing he needed to give her back to Shiva, Daksha performed numerous yajnas until finally receiving Her as his daughter Sati.Daksha was displeased with his daughter Sati’s union to Lord Shiva and he neglected to invite them both to the yagna he hosted. Despite this, Sati insisted on going and when she arrived, her father egregiously insulted Shiva. Unable to bear such disrespect towards her beloved husband, Sati set herself ablaze in despair. In response of this injustice against his wife, Shiva assumed a wrathful form known as Veerabhadra; consequently destroying Daksha’s yagna and killing him while expressing great sorrow through dance – thus came forth the cosmic Tandav. Lord Vishu, with the aim of stopping the Tandav, used his Sudarshana Chakra, which cut through the Sati’s corpse. The parts of Sati body fell at varroas spots all through the Indian and neighboring country and these Sacred sites came to be called Shakti Peethas .
