Durga literally means 'inaccessible'. Durga, according to the Rig Veda, is the Primodial source of energy, who has produced the universe, even the substratum above the Supreme 'Brahman' and is actually a manifestation of 'Brahman' himself. Her energy pervades the entire universe and moves along with 12 Adityas, 11 Rudras and 8 Vasus (who are the primary Gods of the universe). Durga, is the Goddess, the mother of the creation and the giver of boons of all kinds. She is one of the forms of Parvati and the consort of Lord Shiva.
