The Self-Decapitated Goddess holds her own severed head in one hand, a scimitar in another. Chhinnamasta is associated with the concept of self-sacrifice as well as the awakening of the kundalini – spiritual energy. Her individual public worship is rare, due to her ferocious nature and her reputation of being dangerous to approach and worship. Her individual worship is restricted to heroic, Tantric worship by Tantrikas, yogis and world renouncers.
