Maa Katyayani Emerged From The Powerful Anger Of The Divine Mother Inherent in the male gods And Manifested As The Warrior Form Of Maa Durga, With Incomparable Effulgence Shinning Through the universe. All the gods presented Maa Katyayani With Weapons For the battle against mahishasura. After Slaying mahishasura, Maa Katyayani Began To Be Known As Maa MahishasuraMardini. Maa Katyayani’s Beheading Of mahishasura With Her Sword Is a metaphor for viveka, which is the ability to discern between the apparent and the real, the transient and the eternal.

The gopis of vrindavana are the ideal teachers from whom one can learn the art of pure love. The gopis are the eternal manifestations of the internal spiritual potency Of Bhagwan Shri Krishna. They symbolize The Highest Form Of Pure Love And Unwavering Devotion For Him. The gopisโ€™ affection for Lord Krishna is a supreme tribute to the creative power of love, which transforms a gross physical emotion (kama) into divine love (prema). Traditionally, the gopis worshipped Maa Katyayani to attain Bhagwan Shri Krishna as their husband. Their worship reflected their purity of steadfast devotion and love. Women who can learn from the gopis and instill purity of love and affection in their hearts are Blessed with compatible life partners by praying To Maa Katyayani.
