Holy Flower

The shoeflower that belongs to a group of plants called hibiscus is offered to many gods during worship, but it is with Durga that the flower is chiefly associated.

The flower is called Jaba in Bengali.

According to the legend, when the goddess Durga assumed the form of Kali to destroy evil, the hibiscus plant gave the red colour of its flowers to the goddess’ eyes so that they would glow red with anger and strike terror in the heart of the enemies. The goddess was touched by the gesture and offered to grant the plant any boon that it asked for.

"I wish to serve you forever," said the plant, simply. Its wish was granted. The goddess promised to bless anyone who offered her Java flowers.

I was astonished that you have given so much information through your web site - Actually I was reading a webpage on the life history of Bhogar through which I got your web site. Even though this would help science students, you have made it so simple for others also to read and understand, especially with pictures. May your service continue for a long time to come. With Best Wishes. Sankara Narayanan
