- The story of Goddess Avatar is told in Durga Satpashti, offer red flowers to Goddess in Chaitra Navratri
Right now Chaitra month is going on and after the new moon of this month Chaitra Navratri starts. There will be Chaitra Navratri from Tuesday, April 13 to Wednesday, April 21. In these days, different forms of the Mother Goddess should be worshiped. Mother Goddess has taken many incarnations to slay the demons. Goddess Maa incarnated as Durga to slay Mahishasura. For this reason the Goddess is also called Mahishasuramardini.
According to Pt. Manish Sharma, Jyotishacharya of Ujjain, Durga Saptashati tells about the incarnation of Goddess. In the old times, a demon named Mahishasura had taken the gods out of heaven and took possession of them there. No god was able to defeat him.
Departing from heaven, all the gods reached Shiva and Vishnu. Shiva and Vishnu became enraged by Mahishasura’s terror. At that time, a sharp appearance of the face of all the gods appeared, this sharp turned into a goddess form.
The face of the goddess with the glory of Shivji, the hair with the glory of Yamraj, the arms with the glory of Vishnu, the moon with the glory of the moon, the toes with the glory of the sun, the nose with the sharpness of Kuber, the teeth with the sharpness of Prajapati, with the sharpness of fire. The goddess’s ears originated from the three eyes, Sandhya’s radiance, Bhrkuti and Vayu’s radiance. In this way the goddess was born from the glory of the gods.
All the gods presented their powers to the Goddess who had descended. Shiva offered Trishul and Agnidev his power to the goddess. Lord Vishnu gave the Sudarshan Chakra. Varun Dev presented Shankh, Pawan Dev gave bow and arrow, Devraj Indra gave Vajra and Ghanta, Yamaraja presented the punishment. Prajapati Daksha gave the garland of crystal, Brahmadi gave the kamandala, Suryadev gave his glory. Samudradev presented jewelery. The lake never gave a wreath of flower flowers, Kuberdev gave a divine pot full of honey, Mount Raja Himalaya presented the lion. In the same way, there are many more.
Goddess Durga killed Mahishasura with these powers from the gods. The goddess is called Mahishasuramardini because of killing Mahishasura. Special worship of Goddess Durga should be done in Chaitra Navratri. If there is not much time for worship, then visit the Goddess daily and offer red flowers.
