The involvement of the word Tantra always relates to something negative and treacherous. But the fact is something else. Tantrik Vidhya was something which was practiced even by the Gods and it had supernatural powers. Shiva and Shakti are the major inventors or processors of these powers. If we think logically then Tantric Vidhya was invented in order to keep away the bad vibes from entering into other’s lives. This was for a good purpose but with time people practicing it in a wrong way. Let’s now discuss that which temples “the sacred places” practice tantric vidhya.
1. Vaital temple, Bhubaneswar, Orissa
This temple was constructed in the eighth century and is regarded as one of the most preferred places for practicing Tantrik Vidhya. It is said to be very powerful and mystical in terms of tantric powers. Here an idol of the Devi is worshiped which is known as Chamunda or Kali. The deity of Chamunda Goddess seems very furious and freaky. It stands on a corpse and wears a garland made of the skull.
