the mother goddess who conquerors demons on the battlefield, is also known as
Durgatiharini- the remover of misfortune. With her presence, she wards off the
visible and invisible foes.
Durga is mounted on her lion, who is sitting down comfortably. Devi is present
in this brass idol as Ashtabhuja- eight-armed, carrying powerful weapons. Ma
Durga holds a lotus bud, a fortuitous symbol associated with mother goddesses.
Her right hand raised in the gesture of fearlessness assures the troubled mind,
reminding it of the transcendent presence of the Ashtabhujadhari Durga.
