To know the meaning of Shakradi Stuti, 10th shloka onwards, listen to the above audio.
Durga Maa has got a thousand hands, but she is famous as the eighteen-handed Goddess. This is mentioned in the Vaikrithika rahasya of Durga Saptashati - अष्टादशभुजा पूज्या सा सहस्रभुजा सती.
Durga Devi represents the combined power of all the Devas. When Devas were ousted from e Swarga by Mahishasura, their anger came out of their bodies, merged together, and became a mountain of fire. This later assumed a feminine form as Durga Devi. She manifested to eliminate the evil Mahishasura and protect the Devas.
