🔥One of the most invoked forms of the Great Goddess is her manifestation as the youthful, multi-armed deity who successfully battles the mighty buffalo demon that symbolizes among other things, the elemental powers of brutish ignorance. In her this incarnation she is referred to as Durga, the ‘unattainable’. The Great Goddess Durga was born from the energies of the male divinities when the gods lost the long drawn-out battle with the asuras (demons). All the energies of the gods united and became supernova, throwing out flames in all directions. Then that unique light, pervading the Three Worlds with its lustre, combined into one, and became a female form.
The Devi projected an overwhelming omnipotence. The awesome three-eyed Goddess was adorned with the crescent moon. Her multiple arms held auspicious weapons and emblems, jewels and ornaments, garments and utensils, garlands and rosaries of beads, all offered by the gods. With her golden body blazing with the splendor of a thousand suns, Durga is one of the most spectacular of all personifications of Cosmic Energy.
The tremendous power of the Goddess was poised ready for the grim battle to wipe out demonic forces, the asuras whose exaggerated ego-sense was destroying the balance of the universe, and whose sole purpose was to dominate and control. It was the universal war between knowledge and ignorance, truth and falsehood, the oppressor and the oppressed. The world shook and the seas trembled as the Goddess engaged the Great Demon Mahishasura and his hosts in fierce battle. The Goddess leapt into the air, and from above came down on the demon’s neck. She dashed him to the earth and sent the trident through his neck. He was half inside the buffalo and half outside, when the Goddess, with a swift and terrific stroke, beheaded him, and he died. The chief demon Mahishasura was thus dead, and the gods praised the Goddess, joyfully worshipping her with flowers, incense and fragrant paste! ✨🔱👁🔱✨ .
