This is one of the most dynamic and conventional representations of Goddess Durga where she is shown fighting the demon known as Mahisha. The painting portrays the goddess dispatching the bearded demon to a glorious end, driving a spear into his chest.

The ten-armed Devi is poised aggressively with one leg on the demon's shoulder and the other supported on her lion. Her ten arms are fanned around her, forming a resplendent mandala-like halo around her. Each hand holds a different implement, which, starting clockwise are: arrow, lotus, chakra, trident, sword, shield, conch, mace, bow and the tenth pulling at the demon's hair. Her lion mount provides his own share by gnawing at the villain's right knee.

Durga's trident is shaped like a spear at the other end. When the goddess thrusts it into the demon and blood starts oozing out, he spreads open his chest, welcoming his glorious end. Even though engaged in an action which in conventional terms would be deemed as violence, the goddess nevertheless is, as always, the epitome of Supreme Beauty. The talented artist, knowing this very well, has not left any stone unturned to highlight her feminine beauty and charm. This includes a long array of tresses, reaching nearly down to the demon, delicate and colored lips and a profusion of ornaments on her body with an especially beautiful nose ring.

The highlight of this artwork is the unique color scheme, which only an artist having a firm command over all aspects of his art, including line, material and iconography could achieve.

IAs a serious student and teacher of Bhagavad Gītā, Upaniṣad and Jyotiṣa I have found you have some good editions of English with sanskrit texts. Having texts of high quality with both is essential.   This has been a user friendly experience
