Legend of Maa Katyayani
According to religious mythology, Maa Katyayani was manifested by the combined energies of the gods. With the power of a thousand suns, three eyes, black hair and many hands, Goddess Katyayani incarnated on earth to slay the demon Mahishasura.
In Hinduism, Mahishasura was a powerful half-human half-buffalo demon who used his shape-shifting abilities in evil ways. Enraged by her twisted ways, all the Devas combined their energies to create Maa Katyayani, and the battle between the Goddess and the demon is marked as the ‘victory of good over evil’.
Maa Katyayani, also known as Mahisharsuramarthini, who killed the deceitful demon, has a deep significance in Hinduism. Maa Katyayani is said to have many hands, which are blessed with clear weapons bestowed by the deities.
Shiva gave her a trident, Vishnu a sudarsana sugar, Angi deva a tart, Vayu deva a bow, Indra a thunderbolt, and Brahma a Rudraksha with a water pot.
