Durga has been a warrior goddess, and she is depicted to express her martial skills.
Her iconography typically resonates with these attributes, where she rides a lion or a tiger, has between eight to eighteen hands, each holding a weapon to destroy and create.
She is often shown in the midst of her war with Mahishasura, the buffalo demon at the time she victoriously kills the demonic force.
Her icon shows her in action, yet her face is calm and serene.
In Hindu arts, this tranquil attribute of Durga’s face is traditionally derived from the belief that she is protective and violent not because of her hatred, egotism or getting pleasure in violence, but because she acts out of necessity, for the love of the good, for liberation of those who depend on her, and a mark of the beginning of soul’s journey to creative freedom.
Durgapur, with much pomp and show is much set to welcome the endeavor for yet another time to feel the power in the presence of the Almighty in ourselves. Bolo Dugga Mai ki, Jai!
