Durga Devi

Goddess Durga , is the most popular incarnation of Devi and one of the main forms of the Goddess Shakti in the Hindu pantheon.The Goddess Durga is worshipped in her peaceful form as Maha Gauri. The demon Mahishasura did penance, and in return Shiva blessed him so that no man or god could kill him, only a woman. This emboldened Mahishasura, who became troublesome throughout the world, even conquering the gods in the heavens. The trinity of gods Brahma, Shiva and Vishnu decided to create a woman to defeat him, and together, combining their energies, they created Durga.

They gave her their weapons, too: Shiva gave her the trident, Vishnu a disc, Varuna a conch and noose, Agni a spear, Vayu arrows, Indra the thunderbolt, Yama a sword and shield, Vishvakarma an axe and armour, Himavat a lion, and the other gods many other beautiful gifts. Durga went to battle with Mahishasura, easily destroying his armies.
