Wallpaper Description:
The Beauty of Hinduism. This is one of my favourite pictures of all time. I love the happy and peaceful colours. Durga is a great protector. She is the divine mother of Hinduism. Shiva above Durga's right shoulder is highly worshiped in India and very popular around the world. Chanting ( Namah Shivaya ) It is 5 syllables when said and chanting 5 times will bring peace to the mind and protect you from a threating or evil forces. Shiva is a mighty protector as is the Beautiful Durga also known as Mata.

In Hinduism, the Goddess Durga (दुर्गा, "the inaccessible"[1] or "the invincible"[2]) or Maa Durga (Mother Durga) "one who can redeem in situations of utmost distress".[citation needed] Durga is a form of Devi, the supremely radiant goddess, depicted as having ten arms, riding a lion or a tiger, carrying weapons (including a lotus flower), maintaining a meditative smile, and practicing mudras, or symbolic hand gestures.

An embodiment of creative feminine force (Shakti), Durga exists in a state of svātantrya (dependence on the universe and nothing/nobody else, i.e., self-sufficiency) and fierce compassion. Durga is considered by Hindus to be an aspect of Kali, and the mother of Ganesha, and Kartikeya.[3] She is thus considered the fiercer, demon-fighting form of Lord Shiva's wife, Goddess Parvati. Durga manifests fearlessness and patience, and never loses her sense of humor, even during spiritual battles of epic proportion.

The word Shakti, means divine feminine force, and Durga is the warrior aspect of the Divine Mother. Other incarnations include Annapurna and Karunamayi (karuna = kindness). Durga's darker aspect Kali is represented as the consort of god Shiva, on whose body she is often seen standing.

Durga's form is blindingly bright, as a radiant goddess (devi), with three lotus-like eyes, ten powerful hands, lush hair with beautiful curls, a red-golden glow from her skin and a quarter moon on her forehead. She wears a shiny attire emitting fierce rays. Her ornaments were carved beautifully of gold, with ocean pearls and precious stones embedded in it.

The many arms holding weapons signify the unattainable energy that Maa Durga possesses. Different weapons suggest the idea that she can face any evil force without consideration. It also meaning in terms of spiritual world and the materialistic world.

The Goddess of nature !!
Prevails or rather dwells in the Ultimate !!
The Goddess is the creator of the universe !!
By illusion the reality is concealed by Maya !!
The description in the line of epic is good !!!
