Bhandasura

Bhandasura was a demon created from the ashes of

Kama,the god of Love, after Shiva blasted him with

His third eye. He was given the boon of being able to

absorb half the power of his opponents. (Shiva has a

reputation for being somewhat indiscriminating in

handing out boons..He was almost reduced to ashes once

Himself because of this particular failing!)

 

Bhandasura represents the power of ignorance, and his

city is Sunyata (Void). Lalita ("She Who Ever Desires

To Sport with Her Lord")arose in a very similar way as

Durga, and upon Her manifestation was approached by

Brahma and urged to take a husband. In reply, She

tossed Her garland high into the air and it fell down

around the Shiva Lingam, designating Her rightful

husband and counterpart in the form of the Supreme

Potency of the Universe. There was no honeymoon, She

departed at once to battle with Bhandasura.

During the battle, Bhandasura had an evil magician

scatter yantras among Her Shaktis, and apathy and

depression overcame them. In response, Lalita turned

and glanced lovingly at Her husband, and Ganesha was

born from that single glance. He stopped only long

enough to bow to His Mother, then, snapping off His

tusk, He picked up all the yantras with it like a

maintenance man with his spiked stick picking up

litter, and the Shaktis were instantly restored to

full fighting vigor.

At the end of the battle, Bhandasura tried to

exert the power of his boon upon Her, and was

overwhelmed; the Goddess's power is infinite in scope,

and half of Infinity is still Infinite..it was too

much for Bhandasura, demon of ignorance, and he went

down in death and defeat before Her, and all his

allies and his city were destroyed.
