Hinduism - Who Is Navadurga In The Hindu Pantheon?

 

Navadurga ("Nine Durgas") is a Hindu goddess.

Durga is the collective term for nine different manifestations of the Goddess Durga, who is both powerful and deadly.

During the Navaratri festival, which takes place in October or November, one of the "nine Durgas" is worshipped on each of the nine nights.

Each goddess has her own individuality while also being a manifestation of Durga.

The Goddess is known for her flexibility; all female divinities are considered as expressions of a single grand Goddess at the end of the day.

Mahalakshmi, Mahasaraswati, Yogmaya, Raktadantika, Shakumbhari Devi, Durga, Bhramari, and Chandika are the nine Durgas, in order of adoration.
