2. Puranic origin of the Mother Goddess is given in the “Story”section of the society’s web-site: www.vedantacalgary.com.This story is from a section of “”The Markandeya Mahapuranam”and it is based on the “Devi Sukta”of Rig-Veda,book 10,sukta 125, where the DEVI declared Herself as the essential POWER of every system. The Power of DEVI consists of both GOOD and EVIL.
Mother Durga represents the mother Nature[or divine power] who keeps the evil[ demonic power] under Her feet[ or control].
The sages of the Vedas prayed to stay in the path of RITA[ right ,order,good action ,divine path or Law]. From Rig-Veda ,book 1,sukta 90: madhu vata rityate …
The sweet winds blow for the person who follows the right[or rita] path.
