The eighth manifestation of Great Goddess Durga is MahaGauri. The white goddess, the fairness of her being is constantly compared to the conch, moon and kund flowers. All her adornments, clothes and jewelery are always white. She is always envisaged and worshiped as an 8-years old.

Due to Intense and prolonged nature of her arduous tapasya, the body of Sati was shriveled and blackened. When Shiva was moved bu her devotion, he consented to take sati as his consort and bathed her body with the waters of the celestial river Ganga and immediately her body became dazzling white and returned to the fresh vitality of 8-years old, the age at which possibly the goddess as a young girl heard the words of Narada muni, which moved her to seek the most perfect of bride-grooms, Shiva as her consort.

Mahagauri holds in 2 of her hands the Trishool and Damroo, symbols most closely associated with Lord Shiva. The benign goddess symbolizes the purity of childlike innocence as well as the unwavering determination needed to fulfill her arduous meditation.
