Durga is the supreme Goddess who can bring light to the earth, a force for peace amid the powers of evil. She is the feminine force or Shakti created by the gods to combat the evil male power that had percolated through the world; and from her sprang the Goddess kali to join the fight, and the vehicle for this fight was the Tiger !. Why? Perhaps because tiger and man were deemed to have been born from the same mother, so the Tiger was seen as a man's sibling, but also as the king of the forest, a power on earth that was beyond reach of any mortal.
