Durga Ma slays the slothful Demon of Dumbness

The progenitors of human kind offer Sacred Speech to their sacrificial fires in order to feed the Gods and Goddesses. Pleased, the Gods and Goddesses give blessings of prosperity and progeny to the humans. But enter the Demons who attempt to stop the articulation of Sacred Speech in order to defeat the Gods (starve them, for example). The Gods and Goddesses come together as the One that they really are, manifested as the Mother Goddess Herself, whose true nature is Creation or Sacred Speech, Itself, and this Durga Ma slays the slothful Demon of Dumbness. This is “analogy” which is not fixed in time.
