  • In Hinduism, Durga is a fierce form of the Hindu Goddess, Shakti.

  • The name Durga means "the inaccessible" or "the invincible" in Sanskrit (an ancient Indian language).

  • Durga is the consort of Lord Shiva.

  • Durga is often depicted with many arms (from ten to a thousand) with many weapons, riding a lion, and battling or slaying demons, especially Mahishasura, the buffalo demon.

  • Durga's victory over the buffalo demon is described in the scripture Devi Mahatmya.

  • Durga's victory over the buffalo demon is celebrated in the festivals of Navaratri and Durga Puja.

  • Hindu goddess durga statue in brass
  • Weight: 0.9 KG
  • Crafted in India
Product Description:
In Hinduism, the goddess Durga, is the "the inaccessible" or "the invincible", or Maa Durga (Mother Durga) "one who can redeem in situations of utmost distress". Durga is a form of Devi, the supremely radiant goddess, depicted as having ten arms, riding a lion or a tiger, carrying weapons (including a Lotus flower), maintaining a meditative smile, and practicing mudras, or symbolic hand gestures. An embodiment of creative feminine force (Shakti), Durga exists in a state of svatantrya (dependence on the universe and nothing/nobody else, self-sufficiency) and fierce compassion. Durga is considered by Hindus to be an aspect of Kali, and the mother of Ganesha, and Kartikeya. She is thus considered the fiercer, demon-fighting form of Shiva's wife, goddess Parvati. Durga manifests fearlessness and patience, and never loses her sense of humor, even during spiritual battles of epic proportion. Celebrate this Indian Diwali puja festival with idols statues and sculptures of Hindu gods and goddesses.
