Chinnamasta Altar (at Sri Kamakhya Mahavidya Mandir, 2010-12)

O secret form of Durga, great womb, the hidden vanquisher of evil, who obliterates the wrongdoing of seven births, help me, give me refuge!

I adore you, secret form of Kamakhya! I offer the puja of the three worlds to you! Please give me the various perfections of devoted practice eternally, O goddess who is Shiva’s beloved!
