New Fiberglass Durga Idol
Durga, Devi, Shakti, Bhavani, Parvati different parts of India know her by different names, but the reverence and respect and love for Maa Durga is the same throughout the country. Durga, a warrior Goddess, with her name translating to "the inaccessible" or "the invincible", is the most popular reincarnation of Goddess Shakti. Today many forms of her are worshipped in different parts, although she most popularly and commonly depicted as riding a Lion, ten hands adorned with ten different weapons, defeating and killing the buffalo demon ‘mahisasura’,

In Bengal and some other adjoining areas she is also worshipped with her whole family with Karthikeya, Lord Ganesha, Goddess Saraswati and Goddess Laxmi. Even while slaying the buffalo demon her face is lighted with smile which radiates peace and wellbeing for all.Legend has it that Mahisasura, the shape shifting buffalo was once terrorizing the world, kicking up dust, leaving destruction in his wake with his armies torturing pious sadhus(hermits) and disrupting yagyas and havanas. As the Devas and Asuras are locked in a perpetual battle symbolizing the ever recurring war between good and evil, Mahisasura was looking to gain edge over the Devas by getting stronger. He started penance and hardship in the form of Tapasya of Lord Brahma. Finally Lord Brahma appeared and granted him a wish. Mahisasura asked for immortality where ‘no man or animal’ in the face of the earth can kill him.
