Difference Between Goddess Chandi And Goddess Durga

Goddess Chandi and Durga are manifestations of Mother Goddess Shakti. According to Markandeya Purana, Mother Goddess Shakti took the form of Chandi and annihilated numerous demons. But what is the difference between Chandi and Durga.

Goddess Chandi is an unimaginably ferocious form of Goddess Shakti. When Goddess assumes the form to annihilate demons she is Chandi.

Goddess Durga is a benevolent form of Shakti. When Goddess assumes the form of a savior she is Durga.

It must be noted that Goddess Shakti took thousands of forms in his fight against the army of demon Mahishasura.
