The trident🔱 in Devi DURGA’S hand represent the threefold miseries that the embodied being suffers.
Adhibhautik (miseries due to bodily inconvenience. Disease.
Adhyatmik (miseries caused by psyche)
Adhidaivik (miseries caused by higher forces and other living entities)
Her name denotes her commission as the superintendent of the material world. Durga is formed from two words. “dur” difficult. And the first two letters of the word “gata or gati” which means to walk, or movement, or assail.
So “dur” plus “ga”, becomes Durga. Meaning unassailable, difficult to traverse.
Now bear in mind that Sri Krsna spoke in Bhagavad gita chapter 7 verse 14, and note the word “duratyaya” in the verse, similar to Durga, as mentioned earlier.
daivi hy esa guna-mayi
mama maya duratyaya
mam eva ye prapadyante
maya etam taranti te
This Divine energy of Mine, consisting of the three modes of material nature, is difficult to overcome. But those who have surrendered unto Me can easily cross beyond it” Bhagavad-Gita 7:14.
In conclusion until and unless one becomes “Narayana parayana” (one’s life becomes fully saturated with Krsna Conscious disposition), one would constantly be subjected to the constant swatting of the threefold miseries mentioned earlier, as administered by Durga. Durga also mean a fortress, or a jail House, A closed door.
“Hari bhajana vina sukha santi nahi” without Hari bhajana (Worship of God), one cannot be happy or experience peace of mind..”
