Goddess Durga: The Most Powerful Woman

Goddess Durga supreme power: India, a beautiful land of rich culture has given birth to many influential women throughout history.

We bask in the glory of having seen many powerful women in the fields of politics, law, and order, business, sports, arts and literature, medicine, and astronomy to name a few.

Now, let us refer to the world history that is millions of centuries old. Once, the most powerful woman was created to protect the universe and she was worshiped even by the Great Trinity (Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu, and Lord Shiva.)

She is empowered with the creative potency of Lord Brahma, the preserving potency of Lord Vishnu, and the destructive potency of Lord Shiva and is thus, called Brahmani, Vaishnavi, and Rudrani respectively.

She is also the combined form of the powers of goddesses Lakshmi, Saraswati, and Kali. She successfully accomplished the task of protecting the universe from the cruelties of the demon Mahishasura and was named Mahishasura Mardini.

We worship her as goddess Durga, the invincible one. Durga stands for “Durgatinashini”, the one who eliminates suffering. She is the divine mother who protects the three worlds from evil, misery, and ignorance, and guides in the path of victory, truth, and righteousness.

Mantra to please Goddess Durga supreme power:

“Om Sri Durgaya Namah”

Significance of the mantra:

This is a powerful mantra of Goddess Durga and the chanting of this mantra relieves one of all the physical, mental, and economic problems.

Durga Gayatri mantra:

The following is the Durga Gayatri mantra suitable for recitation by the people who are initiated by a guru into the chanting of the Gayatri mantra:

“Om Kathyayanaya Vidhmahe Kanya Kumari Cha Dheemahe Thanno Durgaya Prachodayath”


“Let me meditate on the goddess who is the daughter of Katyayani. May the maiden goddess give me a higher intellect. And let Goddess Durga illuminate my mind.”

It is important to note that any mantra recitation generates immense energy and the same needs to be returned to the universe in the form of tarpan or in the form of blessings to the near and dear.

The reciter can give away the energy to the universe through tarpan by reciting “tatsa brahmarpana mastu” at the end of the mantra recitation.

One can also distribute the energy through rays by blessing the near and dear. Whenever the energy tarpan is performed to the universe, one receives blessings from the universe.
