The Goddesses of Navratri

Navratri celebrates the power of the feminine; good over evil, positivity over negativity. This portrait is of Parvati, the first Goddess celebrated on the first day of Navratri. She is often seen with a lotus in one hand and a trishul in the other.  I'd like to think of her as a "will tolerate no nonsense" Goddess.
