Ma Durga is the Goddess of divine power against all the evil forces. She is believed to be the mother of the universe.
Popularly depicted in a fierce form with multiple arms and carrying various weapons, Durga is widely worshipped for slaying the evil demon Mahishasur. Durga’s victory over Mahishasur is celebrated in the form of various festivals, such as Durga Puja and Navratri, in different parts of India.
As a Goddess, Durga’s form combines the joint powers of the Almighty Hindu Trinity- Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. She is the power behind the universal work of creation, preservation and destruction.
Durga has many forms and protects Her devotees from miseries and evils of the universe. Ma Durga, thus, is a powerful representation of the victory of good over evil.
