The significance in the idol

The significance in the idol (Vishwa Roopa Darshana)

The magnificent idol of Shree Durga is a Chaturbhuja (four-armed) image. It stands holding the Shanka (conch) and Chakra (discus) in the upper hands and Dhanus (bow) and Trishula (trident) are being held in the lower hands.

Shanka and Chakra symbolizes protection and the fulfillment of wishes of the good (sishta rakshana), while Dhanus and Trishula symbolizes the destruction of the evil (dushta samhaara). The fallen Mahishasura stamped under the feet signifies the suppression and destruction of the evil .The horns on the head of the fallen demon Mahishasura represents the egotism in us! This makes us forget the God. But the idol shows and symbolizes the destruction of such ego.

The majesty of the image lies in the facial features. The divine serenity of the ever smiling face is a rare gesture found in the idol of Durgadevi during the act of asura samhaara (culling of demons)! This divine serenity signifies tranquility, peace and bliss.

In totality, the idol symbolizes the destruction of ahamkaara (resultant of tamoguna). The serene, blissful smile promises protection for the pious and good. It reassures a devotee of the blessings along with Jnana and Bhakti. Thus, the transcendental magnificence and grace of Durgadevi is reflected in idol at Kunjarugiri temple.
