Of Beauty And Ferocity, Simhavahini Devi Durga

Of Beauty And Ferocity, Simhavahini Devi Durga

The simhavahini Devi Durga is a sight to behold. She is a powerful feminine presence, born to annihilate adharma at the very root. She fulfills a purpose that is beyond the scope of the entire Hindu deva pantheon, Mahishasuravadha or the slaying (‘vadha’) of the buffalo-demon (Mahishasura). She is as strong as She is beautiful, as invincible as She is fair, as omnipotent as She is nariroopa (womanly manifestation).

The oil painting that you see on this page depicts the beauteous Devi in a vivid red saree and a gold crown, with Her gorgeous black mane cascading down Her back. The jewels that encircle Her halo of pale gold match the ones studded densely on to Her crown. Around Her neck is a garland of fresh flowers, a devotional offering. She is ashtabhujadharini, the one possessed of (‘dharini’) eight (‘ashta’) arms (‘bhuja’). In each of those hands is a weapon or a divine implement.

The word simhavahini is a portmanteau of ‘simha’ (lion) and ‘vahini’ (rider). Nothing less than a lion suffices Her purpose, as sturdy and determined as She is. Note the brushstrokes that have gone into the mane and the revealed musculature of the creature, proof of the painter’s skill as well as shraddha. An aura of blue surrounds Devi Durga’s haloed head, which contrasts with the textured purple ink background of the composition.
