Historical Background

In Hindu legend, Mahisha is a buffalo-headed monster. It is an Asura. The goddess Durga fought Mahisha after the Asuras had overthrown the Devas (Hindu gods) temporarily. First Indra tried to defeat Mahisha, but he lost. Then Kumara tried, but he lost. Then Vishnu tried, first as the Avatar Narasimha, then as the Avatar Varaha, but both attempts failed. Shiva opened his 3rd eye, which can fire out a death ray, but Mahisha absorbed the blast unphased. Mahisha was immune to all forms of weapons. The Devas created, using all their shaktis (the power of the gods, considered to be feminine) and merging them, a warrior goddess to help them take back power, Durga. She managed to slay Mahisha with her bare hands and feet as well as many of the Asuras who overthrew the Devas.
