Chandi is depicted as the supreme reality and is an amalgamation of Maha Saraswati, Maha Lakshmi and Maha Kali. The Goddess is described as a great energy. She assigned Lord Shiva as her messenger to the demons or asuras Nisumbha and Sumbha. Another legend mentions that the Goddess is known as Chandi as she annihilated the asura Chanda. Although there are not many Puranic references to the significance of the Chandi Vinayaka form but still the combination of Lord Ganesha and Goddess Chandi is of utmost importance.
