Mother Durga is the ultimate warrior against the forces of negativity in life. Her multitude of arms is symbolic of the combined power she holds from the nine incarnations of Lord Vishnu. In this Durga represents your united front against the forces of evil and wickedness in your life. Durga holds different weapons in her hands, symbolizing that you’ll need more than one weapon in your spiritual arsenal to defeat personal demons. For example, you’ll find selfishness is destroyed by detachment, while jealousy succumbs to desirelessness, and prejudice gives way to self-knowledge, and your ego falls when you have subtle discrimination. Mother Durga stands on the defeated demon Mahish, illustrating that evil is ultimately not all powerful when the gods unite. Under unity balance is restored. The balancing force is called Shakti or Durga. When Durga is shown standing on the lion she assures your freedom from fear. Durga says to her followers by this stance: “Surrender all actions and duties onto me, and I shall release thee from all fears.” The lion represents will, determination and power. Durga astride shows she has mastery over these qualities, which her followers will need to defeat the demon of ego. Pretty powerful messages for your spiritual life. –
