Maa Durga is the all-powerful deity of Shakti. When Gods could not defeat demon Mahishasura, they sought Lord Shiva’s help. He asked them to release their powers and combine them in a female form. Thus emerged Durga with multiple arms, each adorning a weapon. Riding a fierce lion, She destroyed Mahishasura after a bloody battle and saved the universe by defeating evil forces of hatred, anger, ego and jealousy. The energised idol of Durga is made in parad, the most auspicious metal made by mixing mercury with silver. Parad Durga Maa will bring prosperity, health, goodwill, power, success and strength to you and your family.
Key words: Durga, prosperity, goodwill, power, success, strength
