Believed as the root cause of creation, sustenance and annihilation, Goddess Durga is the principal form of the Mother Goddess in Hinduism. ‘Durga’ in Sanskrit means ‘invincible’ or the destroyer of sins, injustice, irreligion, cruelty & laziness.
The Hindu Goddess Durga is a unified symbol of all divine forces and is said to have manifested when evil forces threatened the very existence of the Gods. To destroy these demons, all Gods offered their radiance to her creation and each formed different parts of Durga’s body. She also obtained very powerful weapons, such as the Chakra from Lord Vishnu and the Trishul (trident) from Lord Shiva. Goddess Durga, hence, rose to power and killed the dangerous demon Mahishasur and all his great commanders.
