The Beauteous Simhavahini Devi Durga

Colors available: 2
Current: Brown Gold

Devi Durga is born of the wrath of all the devas of devaloka (realm of existence of the devas) combined. They were overwhelmed by the sabotaging antics of Mahishasura, the buffalo-demon, when they gathered to give birth to Devi Durga. As a Devi, She embodies the extremes of wrath and prowess. In Her asankhya (innumerable) hands, She wields the finest weapons, each of which has been bestowed upon Her by the likes of Lord Brahma and Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva.

On this page you see the ashtabhujadhari (eight-armed) Devi Durga, with one of Her anteriormost hands raised in blessing over Her devotees. Coloured in the wrath and raw ferocity of Her Mahishasuramardini iconography (‘mardini’ is Sanskrt for ‘slayeress’), it is easy to overlook the tranquil and beauteous side of Devi Durga. After all, She is the wife of Lord Shiva and the queen of the Hindi devi pantheon. This brass composition captures the beauty and grace of Her solitary image.

She mounts (vahini) the back of Her simha (lion). The silk of Her dhoti lies in lifelike folds over Her lalitasana legs. Her long, slender torso is bedecked with ample gold jewellery, fit for a queen as powerful as She is. Her crowned and haloed countenance bears a composure of calm and determination and independence. The engraved aureole and intricately sculpted pedestal frame the composition.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
Thank you for your wonderful service and amazing book selection. We are long time customers and have never been disappointed by your great store. Thank you and we will continue to shop at your store
