Goddess Sri Kanaka Durga will be adorned as Sri Lalita Tripura Sundari Devi on ‘Aswayuja Suddha Panchami’ on Sunday, the sixth day of Dasara festival.

She will be seated in the lap of Lord Siva flanked by goddess Sri Lakshmi Devi and Sri Saraswati holding ‘Vinjamarams’ (fans) in their hands to serve Her as described in Lalita Sahasranama Stotram as ‘Sachamara ramavaani savya dakshita sevita’.

The goddess is golden hued and has lotus in her hand. She holds flowers, a noose, a goad and a sugarcane bow, with noose representing attachment, goad standing for repulsion, sugarcane bow signifying the mind and arrows standing for the five senses.
