The Tridevi (English: ‘three goddesses’; Sanskrit: त्रिदेवी tridevi) is a concept in Hinduism conjoining the three consorts of the Trimurti (Great Trinity): Saraswati the goddess of learning and arts, cultural fulfillment (consort of Brahmā the creator); Lakshmi the goddess of wealth and fertility, material fulfillment (consort of Vishnu the maintainer or preserver); and Parvati (or in her demon-fighting aspect Durga) the goddess of power and love, spiritual fulfillment (consort of Śiva the destroyer or transformer).

In the Navratri ("nine nights") festival, "the Goddess is worshipped in three forms. During the first three nights, Durga is revered, then Lakshmi on the fourth, fifth and sixth nights, and finally Sarasvati until the ninth night."[1]
