*~* Maa Durga *~*

** Om Jayanti Mangala kali bhadra kali kapalini
Durga shama shiva dhatri swaha swadha namostutae **


Her presence bequeaths power, her grandeur unparallel; her beauty captivates the heart to the core, her glimpse eliminates the evil and with her arrival festival season begins. Such is the splendor of Maa Durga... and the festival of Navaratri lifts up the spirit of joy inside us. There are lots of memories associated with Durga Pooja, the celebrations, sound of drums and aarti, happy faces all around, bright lights, but what has always took my breath away… is the magnificent statue of Maa Durga.

As festival season has started …I have decided to decorate my blog with festive colors too…and what could be better than attempting to paint Maa Durga... below is my humble attempt.

















I wish you all a very happy and prosperous Durga Pooja.

  6. Again the goddess has graced our land with her love, compassion and benovelence. This again reminds us that real pleasure of life is not in taking but in giving. To begin with we can offer and give greetings in the name of holy mother.
    Jai Mata Di. -- RAM

    नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमो नम:"
    "या देवी सर्वभूतेषु मातृरूपेण संस्थिता।
    नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमो नमः।।"
    "या देवी सर्वभूतेषु श्रद्धारूपेण संस्थिता।
    नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमो नमः।।"
    या देवी सर्वभूतेषु बुद्धिरूपेण संस्थिता।
    नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमो नमः।।"
    May Ma Durge bestow upon you and your family her blessings this Navratri and always. - Great piece of work - Kandarp
