The Great Goddess Devi has many guises. She is one and she is many. She is "Ma" the gentle and approachable mother. As Jaganmata, or Mother of the universe, she assumes cosmic proportions, destroying evil and addressing herself to the creation and dissolution of the worlds. She is worshiped by thousands of names. As Bhairavi, she is fierce and magnificent all at the same time. Bhairavi is a bharatanatyam showcase regaling the beauty and strength of the many-splendoured Devi.
