Devi Durga is greatly revered in the eastern part of India. She is believed to be the destroyer of evil in the form of Demons. I want to know the origin of Devi Durga and her different forms in which she is also worshipped.

According to Vedic scriptures Goddess Durga is a symbol of power. She is worshipped in nine different forms and is therefore termed Nava-Durga. Each of the nine manifestation of Durga is worshipped with full devotion during Navratri.

Devi Durga is a very special deity able to appear in nine different forms each of which is endowed with unique powers and traits. Can you share with us about the different powers of Nava Durga?

Durga Mata is regarded in northern India as the gentle bride epitomizing family unity, while in southern India she is revered more in her warrior aspect.
