Vedic Statue - Durga Devi - 4"

This exquisite white resin Statue of Durga Devi is handcrafted in Oregon, USA by Mission Studios, and is part of their Vedic Collection. The height of this statue is approximately 4 inches.

Goddess Durga is the Mother Goddess and believed to be the power behind the work of creation, preservation, and destruction of the world, a unified symbol of all divine forces. She is the goddess of power and strength and  has many facets and appears in many manifestations. Durga is depicted as having 8 or 10 hands representing the eight quadrants or ten directions in Hinduism suggesting that she protects devotees from all directions. She preserves moral order and righteousness in the universe.

The lion represents power, will and determination. Mother Durga riding the lion symbolises her mastery over all these qualities. This suggests to the devotee that one has to possess all these qualities to get over the grip of ego. The universal mother seems to be saying to all her devotees: "Surrender all actions and duties onto me and I shall release thee from all fears."
