The Hindu Goddess Durga is the mother of the universe and believed to be the power behind the work of creation, preservation, and destruction of the world. She is depicted as having eight or ten hands and Durga riding the lion symbolises her mastery over all these qualities. Durga incarnated as the united power of all divine beings, who offered her the required physical attributes and weapons to kill the demon "Mahishasur" who threatened the gods.
