Hindu Mythology about Origin Of Maa Durga
As per Hindu mythology, the Origin Of Maa Durga is started from here. There was once a Demon or Danava called Mahishasura. He was partly a buffalo and partially demon. Mahishasura worshipped Lord Brahma for several years to draw his attention. As a result of his hardship, Lord Brahma appeared in front of him and granted him with an opportunity to make a wish. Out of vain, he wished for immortality against every God and Man.

As no man or god could now kill him, he started considering himself as immortal. He took over the entire earth and marched up to the heaven with his army, ending up taking over it successfully. Due to this, the gods had to run down to Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh to seek help for bringing this to an end. Being men, none of the three Supremes had the ability to take Mahishasura down. They now had to bring someone in, who was powerful but not a God or a Man. And that is why Gods and Goddesses invoked MaaDurga.
Maa, was a ten-armed Goddess. Every God presented her with a weapon each; starting from the Sudarshan Chakra, the Trishool, the Lotus, the Vajra, the Bow and Arrows, the Crunch, the Spear, the Club, the Sword and her Lion. With all these, she went down all by herself to bring the proud Buffalo Demon to an end.
The battle between the two went on for ten straight days. Ultimately, at the end of the tenth day, Maa was able to put her trident through the chest of Mahishasura. In India, we all celebrate this day as Vijay Dashami. We celebrate this day as the day of victory of evil as well as the victory of women.
