Mackenzie Brown, is both a culmination of centuries of Indian ideas about the divine feminine, as well as a foundation for the literature and spirituality focussed on the feminine transcendence in centuries that followed. Thus, it can be concluded that the text was composed before the 7th century CE. The saguna forms of her, asserts the text, are Mahakali destroyer, Tamasic , Mahalakshmi sustainer, Rajasic and Mahasaraswati creator, Sattvic , [34] which as a collective are called Tridevi.

The nirguna concept Avyakrita, transcendent is also referred to as Maha-lakshmi. At the beginning of each episode a different presiding goddess is invoked, none of whom is mentioned in the text itself. The sage instructs by recounting three different epic battles between the Devi and various demonic adversaries the three tales being governed by the three Tridevi , respectively, Mahakali Chapter 1 , Mahalakshmi Chapters , and Mahasaraswati Chapters Most famous is the story of Mahishasura Mardini — Devi as "Slayer of the Buffalo Demon" — one of the most ubiquitous images in Hindu art and sculpture, and a tale known almost universally in India.

Vishnu manifests from all pervading Narayan and goes into deep slumber on Adi Sesha. Brahma sings to the Great Goddess, asking her to withdraw from Vishnu so he may awaken and slay the demons. Devi agrees to withdraw and Vishnu awakens and vanquishes the demons. Here Devi serves as the agent who allows the cosmic order to be restored. She is a great Warrior Goddess, representing divine anger and the lethal energy against evil.

The episode stages a world under attack by a form-shifting Mahishasura , an evil demon who uses deception to disarm his opponents, ultimately taking the form of a buffalo demon. He defeats the male gods individually, who fear total annihilation of the forces of good. They team up, combine their individual strengths and channel it into endowed Durga.

Riding a lion into battle, Durga captures and slays the buffalo demon, by cutting off its head. If a community or individual cannot recite the entire Devi Mahatmya composition, the middle episode alone is recited at a puja or festival.
