BHIMASHANKAR

Shiva assumed his gigantic form and joined battle with Tripura. But the legions that the asur had collected round him were so vast and the mettle of his warriors so tough that Shiva decided to call out Gaur to his aid, The Goddess armed to her teeth, got on the ferocious lion that was her usual vahan and proceeded towards the battlefield. She exerted herself to such effect that the demonic troops ran helter- skelter in all directions and were not to be stopped by their leaders. In this desperate situation one Durghashasur, an asur of great bodily prowess and immense courage stepped forward.

Sporting his huge ‘gada’ and shakti’ the asurchallenged the goddess to a battle. The shakti he hurled at the goddess was cut off in mid-air by her. Then he wielded his bow and showered her with arrows. The missiles had sharpened points that listened in the sunshine creating an impression of torrential rains pouring on the goddess. This was rather too much for her. She decided to put an end to this nuisance, and she delivered a mighty blow of her fist on the chest of the asur. Down went the huge form of Durghash, blood gushing forth form his mouth. There was a great uproar in the demonic camp and retreat was prompt.
