Durga- The supreme mother

A manifestation of the Supreme Power Adishakti herself, Devi Durga is the embodiment of the three flowing channels of primordial energy (and the subsequent kundalini powers) – 

Maha Lakshmi (Central Energy Channel), 
Maha Saraswati (Right Energy Channel) and 
Maha Kali (Left Energy Channel). 

These energies mold together to generate the ultimate source of energy as Ma Durga.The Supreme power and the mother of all Gods and Goddesses, Maa Durga is the ultimate primordial being and  establishes the supremacy of goodness over evil. The Durga stuti evokes the divine mother in all the forms in which she is manifested in all existence.

  8. I don't want to comment but I want to know. I was also a devotee of Goddess Durga. But I am confused now.
    Many sources say that Goddess Durga is merely the external manifestation of the supreme being whom we call the paramatma or parambrahm and she has to work according to the paramatma or parambrahm's will.some sources also say that srikrishna is the paramatma or parambrahm and Goddesses Durga is only his maid servant. Some sources say that she is the wife of the kaal or parambrahm and submissive to him. Some sources say that she is the consort of shiva and subservient to him.
    Now I have also read that while appearing as mahishasuramardini from the combined energy of all the gods, Goddess Durga introduced herself as identical to the supreme paramatma or parambrahm in static form and paramshakti in dynamic form but not as the mere creation of the Gods' combined energy.
    I have also read from other sources that the word Allah was originated from a sanskrit word Amba which means Goddess Durga and according to the islamic faith Allah said "be it " and the universe was created from mind without anyone's help. Some articles also reveal that Jesus'God and Muhammad's allah are the same Goddess Durga and Jesus himself described Goddess Durga as his virgin mother and worshipped her as the Supreme one.
    Now being universal mother how can Goddess Durga be anyone's consort? Everything and everyone including all the forms of other Gods and Goddesses and the paramatma or parambrahm (if it not be Goddess Durga herself ) should have been her creations and her children. She, being omnipotent should have created the universe from her mind without anyone's help. Goddess Durga should have been dominant over everything and everyone including all the forms of other Gods and Goddesses and the paramatma or parambrahm (if it not be Goddess Durga herself ).
    I have searched constantly in the inner core of my heart and gradually found that it is Goddess durga only who has all the super qualities to be the one and only supreme. With due respect to all other forms of Gods and Goddesses and the paramatma or parambrahm (if it not be Goddess Durga herself in static form and paramshakti in dynamic form) I have found none who is equivalent to Goddess Durga . With full respect to all other forms of Gods and Goddesses and the paramatma or parambrahm (if it not be Goddess Durga herself ) ,I have found all of them may have potency and character to be demigods merely and submissive to Goddess Durga but not the supreme.
    Are these information and beliefs true?
    These information and beliefs may be wrong also.but then I will have none to whom I can take shelter and whom I can worship with all love and devotion as the Supreme. I have to continue a dejected life throughout then but still I want to know the truth .PLEASE REPLY.

    1. Goddess Durga meaning "the inaccessible" or "the invincible"; durga is the most popular incarnation of Devi and one of the main forms of the Goddess Shakti in the Hindu pantheon. Durga is the original manifested form of Mother Adi-Parashakti. She is Adi- Parashakti herself. The Devi Gita also known as Parvati Gita declares her to be the greatest Goddess. Thus, She is considered the supreme Goddess and primary deity in Shaktism, occupying a place similar to Lord Krishna in Vaishnavism. According to Skanda Purana, Goddess Parvati accounted the name 'Durga' after she killed the demon Durgamaasura. Goddess Parvati is considered to be the complete incarnation of Adi Parashakti or Goddess Durga, with all other Goddesses being her incarnations or manifestations. Whatever deity one is worshiping, ultimately, they are worshiping her. Adi Parashakti or Mahadevi, the Supreme power, is called Durga Shakti as per Devi-Mahatmya. Adi parashakti or Devi Durga is a Hindu concept of the Ultimate Shakti or Mahashakti, the ultimate power inherent in all Creation. According to Markandeya Purana, Durga, Parvati or Chandika, the original form of Adi Parashakti is Goddess Lakshmi and Goddess Saraswati in her mild form; Goddess Kali and Goddess Chandi in her wrathful form. Adi parashakti or Devi Durga is a Hindu concept of the Ultimate Shakti or Mahashakti, the ultimate power inherent in all Creation. This is especially prevalent in the Shakta denomination within Hinduism, which worships the Goddess Devi in all Her manifestations.
