In Hindu mythology, Anandabhairavi is an incarnation of Goddess Parvati. Lord Shiva is called Anandabhairava, where ‘ananda’ means 'bliss', and ‘bhairava’ indicates 'anger', 'fear' and the like. Anandabahirava and Anandabhairavi are well portrayed in a verse in Ananda-Lahari, performing Tandava-Lasya dance. In certain aspects, Anandabhairavi is considered as the female guru and Anandabahirava as the male guru, together in sexual union, drinking the intoxicating wine of consciousness which is ananda itself.
