Durga -The word Durga (दुर्गा) literally means “impassable”,“inaccessible”, “invincible, unassailable”. The Goddess of energy and quality is the most discussed female god in Hindu religion. She is cherishing, wild and multi-dimensioned godess. With many names and many structures, Goddess Durga controls our hearts. While in one way she is known as a kind mother, in another way she is additionally called as the destroyer of evilness who conveys weapons in every one of her hands and is prepared to battle every wrong being. Durga is portrayed in the Hindu pantheon as a courageous lady riding a lion or tiger, frequently defeating the legendary bison devil. Durga Maa appears to be the wife of Shiva as she is another form of ‘Parvati’. She is a focal diety in Shaktism convention of Hinduism, where she is compared with the idea of extreme reality called Brahman.
Durga is loved in the wake of spring and pre-winter harvests, uniquely during the celebration of Navratri. One of the earliest evidence of reverence for Devi appears in the Rig Veda’s (Scripture of Hinduism) hymn.This hymn is also called the Devi Suktam hymn.
I am the Queen, the gatherer-up of treasures, most thoughtful, first of those who merit worship.
Thus gods have established me in many places with many homes to enter and abide in.
Through me alone all eat the food that feeds them, – each man who sees, breathes, hears the word outspoken.
They know it not, yet I reside in the essence of the Universe. Hear, one and all, the truth as I declare it.
I, verily, myself announce and utter the word that gods and men alike shall welcome.
I make the man I love exceeding mighty, make him nourished, a sage, and one who knows Brahman.
I bend the bow for Rudra [Shiva], that his arrow may strike, and slay the hater of devotion.
I rouse and order battle for the people, I created Earth and Heaven and reside as their Inner Controller.
On the world’s summit I bring forth sky the Father: my home is in the waters, in the ocean as Mother.
Thence I pervade all existing creatures, as their Inner Supreme Self, and manifest them with my body.
I created all worlds at my will, without any higher being, and permeate and dwell within them.
The eternal and infinite consciousness is I, it is my greatness dwelling in everything.
There have been different shows and movies that depicted the genuine side of this Goddess. In any case, relatively few of us know certain actualities about her. We have recorded down some lesser-known realities that everybody must read.
