Goddess Durga


Ancient culture Like Hindus knows very well that "everything happens for a reason". Destiny works a mysterious way for each and every living being in this cosmos.

This mysterious way is governed by the supreme source of energy Known as Shakti (Energy) or Urza. This Urza is the authoritative force, Which provides just a small portion of its energy so that universe could work properly, commonly known as Adishakti. Adishakti is infinite but it is also inseparable Part of Shiva Collectively called Shiv-Shakti. Adishakti is the same Energy which flows in our navel Kundalini Shakti. Energy is always conserved, It cannot be created or destroyed but it can transform from one form to another. In every epoch, this Urza or energy (Adi shakti ) takes various incarnations. Lord Shiva shares the House hold With Goddess Parvati who is One of the incarnations of this Urza. Goddess Parvati is the primitive form of Durga. Durga Maa is the warrior Goddess who is invincible.

Hail Goddess Durga

Lord Shiva (The transformer, Supreme consciousness) gets married to Parvati (daughter of Himalaya also known as Himavan). Lord Shiva is not just Parmeshwara. He is also the primitive teacher of the universe, Shiva was the first one, who equipped Saptarishis (7 primitive sages) with all the knowledge of the universe. These Saptarishis went around the world for spreading the peace and knowledge. Various proofs are available that Saptarishis influenced every part of the world.

Small story -

On the other hand Mahishasura the demon king offered austerities to Brahma. Mahishasura asked for immortality from Brahma but Brahma didn't grant his wish. Brahma knew very well that Mahishasura ego was his problem, which he had for Devas, So he boon him that his death is possible only in the hands of a woman. Mahishasura accepted the boon, he took it as an equality to immortality. He believed that if a man is not strong enough to defeat and slay him then how women will able to do that. He believed that it will be impossible for any women to kill him. He started the war with devas and defeated them.

Meanwhile, goddess Parvati covered her journey towards Shiva and tied household knot with Shiva. Shiva enlightens Parvati about all the cosmic knowledge which includes yoga, art, and self-realization. This enlightenment enables her to master the Supreme form of it. This illuminated the power of Adi-shakti in Parvati. After getting control over her powers goddess Parvati takes Incarnation of Durga Maa (Goddess Durga).

Jai mata di

According to epics like Shiva Puran, in that time demon king Mahishasura unleashed the terror on earth. His army killed many innocent sages. A new battle was about to start. So Goddess Durga rode towards the army of Mahishasura.



Mata Rani

Mahishasura Army was lead by many demons but they were so self-centric. They tried to attack Goddess Durga and the battle became more violent on every attack. Goddess Durga slays each and everyone in Mahishasura army. Now Mahishasura realized that his enemy is not ordinary, so he guise like a giant buffalo. But Goddess Durga with her trident beheaded Mahishasura and she established peace among sages. I bow down to Durga Maa ... Jai Mata Di

Blessing of Durga maa can heal all your anxieties; I remembered this classic song which I used to listen in my childhood.

This song is the devotional song where a newly married couple played by legendary superstar Rajesh Khanna who is also known as Kaka of Bollywood and Shabana Azmi takes their unconscious baby to Vaishno Devi pilgrimage. This scene is taken from movie Avtaar (1983). Every year million of devotees visit Vaishno-Devi. It is believed that goddess is so kind; she takes care all her children’s and blesses each one of them. In end of the song, goddess blesses the child consciousness.
