Goddess Lalita devi, the utmost form of Goddess Parvati, appears with beautiful smile in red sari, three eyes and having a goad, noose, bow of sugarcane and the flowery arrow in Her four hands. She is guarded by other Gods and Goddess like Laxmi, Saraswathi, Shiv, Vishnu, Brahma, Rudra, and Ganesh. She sits on Sri Chakra.
The main purpose of birth of Lalita devi was to defeat demon Bhadasur, formed from the ashes of Kama deva, who disturbed God Shiva in his meditation.
But the reason behind this was to wake up lord Siva who can have a child to Maa Parvathi to kill the Demon named Tarakasura. But Shivji unaware of this fact turned Kamdev into ashes with his third eye. Later one of the Pramath Gana made an idol with this ash. Shivji, realizing his mistake starred at the idol and turned it into a great power. This power changed as a demon named "Bhandasura". He tried to conquer this entire creation with his energy. At that time Maa Parvathi took the form of Lalitambika and destroys the demon and blessed him with his previous form of Kamdev. All devatas praised her and accepted as the head of this creation as "Maha Samragni'.
Goddess Lalita Tripura Sundari is the popular form of Shakti upasana in recent times. She is the main deity who occupies the "Meru" of the Sri Chakra and worshiped as Para Devata.
