Preface to This Edition

There is a popular need for works dealing with our Gods and goddesses. This need is felt and voiced because of the prevalence of worship of deities without a proper understanding of the true significance of legends, symbolism of forms and knowledge of the details of worship based on authoritative texts and original sources.

Durga kosha is intended to be a comprehensive work on the Goddess Durga : mythology relating to Durga which is found in our Agama texts and iconographic manual and the worship details and rituals contained in our kalpas and puja-patalas. Durga is a popular deity in our country, and her puja is extensive as well as elaborate. There are numerous shrines to this goddess, and collective as well as household worship of Durga is prevalent. An account of the culture-element in iconography and worship would therefore be welcome not only to the students on Indology but also to the general public.
