The power of the Supreme being
Goddess Durga represents the power of the Supreme being that preserves moral order and righteousness in the creation. Durga Puja is celebrated with happiness all over the world.
The puja and celebration represents the great victory of goddess Durga over the buffalo demon named Mahisasur. A puja is triumph of good over evil.
The Festival of Navratri celebrates nine nights dedicated to the nine divine forms of Goddess Durga.
Goddess Amba / Durga is symbolises the divine forces (positive energy) known as divine Shakti (feminine energy) that is used against the negative forces of evil and wickedness.
Ma Durga protects her devotees from evil powers, safeguards them and misery by destroying evil forces (negative energy and vices- arrogance, jealousy, prejudice, hatred, anger, agreed and selfishness).
Goddess Durga is the combined form of powers of Goddess Lakshmi, Kali and Saraswati.
Goddess Durga took the form of warrior goddess to protect Devas for fighting the demon, Mahisasur. Her divine shakit contains the combined energies of all the gods in the form of weapons and emblems.
Durga Maa is depicted as riding on a lion or a tiger. A tiger symbolizes unlimited power. Durga riding a tiger indicates that she possesses unlimited power and uses it to protect virtue and destroy evil. The lion is a symbol of uncontrolled animalistic tendencies (such as anger, arrogance, selfishness, greed, jealousy, desire to harm others etc.) and her sitting on it reminds us to control these qualities, so that we are not controlled by them.
