This form of Mahisa, a demon of Kalanemi clan, with green body colour, is a rare Tantrika innovation. It combines with darker regions of the cosmos the earth’s fertility aspect and thus seeks to channel animal or rather misled energies into creative process, the Tantra’s primary objective. While meditating on this form of Mahisa the ‘sadhaka’ is able to harness his animal energies and use them for achieving higher goals.
