Legends speak of Goddess Durga as a creation of the three most powerful Devas (Gods) in the Hindu Pantheon – Brahma (the creator), Vishnu (the preserver) and Shiva (the destroyer). According to the sacred text Bhagvatam, once a son called Mahishasura was born to an Asura (demon). Born as an Asura, he saw the victory of Devas over Asuras in every fight. Annoyed by the constant defeat of the Asuras, Mahishasura decided to perform a tapasaya (a long penance) to please the Devas. Years went by. Impressed by Mahishasura’s dedication, Lord Brahma decided to grant him a boon. Elated at such an opportunity, Mahishasura asked Brahma to bless him such that neither a man nor a God could kill him. Thus, his death would lie only in the hands of a Woman. Hence, Durga came to be known as Mahishasura Mardini (The Killer of Mahishasura). This last scene is replicated in many of the idols of the Devi worshipped in the Durga puja.
