VIJAYA DASHAMI FESTIVAL CELEBRATED ON 11-10-2016

VIJAYA DASHAMI

Duraga Devi

A bolt of lightning emerged from the mouths of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva, and a young, beautiful female virgin with ten hands appeared. The gods gave her their weapons, and Shakti coalesced to form the goddess Durga. On a lion who assisted her, Durga fought Mahishasur for nine days and nights; on the tenth day, Mahishasur was killed. Durga, as Shiv’s consort, represents two forms of female energy: mild and protective, and fierce and destructive.

The Goddess is the embodiment of Goddess Durga and is believed to possess the powers of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.

As per the tradition, it is auspicious to wear green clothes on the second day of Navaratri 2016 festival. The Goddess is also known as Bramhmacharini devi.
