Google is showing the wrong meta description of my website in SERP

When I search by URL of my website https://www.auraleague.com/ or name Auraleague it shows wrong description

& when I search by site:auraleague.com then its shows right description (it means that the website is crawled properly but not indexed properly)

Somebody help me.............

My website URL is https://www.auraleague.com/

This may be a signal that your meta description does not represent the main content of the home page and the subject of the website. 
 A meta description tag should generally inform and interest users with a short, relevant summary of what a particular page is about.
Use site-level descriptions on the main home page or other aggregation pages, and use page-level descriptions everywhere else.
Include clearly tagged facts in the description. The meta description doesn't just have to be in sentence format; it's also a great place to include information about the page. For example, news or blog postings can list the author, date of publication, or byline information. This can give potential visitors very relevant information that might not be displayed in the snippet otherwise. Similarly, product pages might have the key bits of information—price, age, manufacturer—scattered throughout a page.
Use quality descriptions. Finally, make sure your descriptions are truly descriptive.
Your meta description content: 
Aura & Company is the Best law firm in Delhi NCR, Ahmedabad, Jaipur - India. If you are looking for any kind of Lawyer or Legal Services then do contact us
Check how it meets Google’s recommendations above: 
-  Is there here "generally inform and interest users with a short, relevant summary of what a particular page is about"? Your information "Aura & Company is the Best law firm" is unlikely to be considered relevant. Any business can declare it. This is not unique business information.
- Is there here "site-level descriptions on the main home page or other aggregation pages, and use page-level descriptions everywhere else"? Your meta description does not have concrete facts for a unique view of the business. 
- Is there here "clearly tagged facts in the description"? Your meta description has no facts about the specialization of this law firm.

In my humble opinion, your meta description is a simple, boastful statement that has no confirmation. 
Users may be interested in the specialization of a law firm. Therefore, it may be useful to focus on the options that this business offers. Leave a business assessment for users. Self-assessment is incorrect and may be considered false.

It may also be useful to check the hierarchical structure of the home page (scroll down to Heading-level outline):

Here, there is practically no specific and useful information. Check out the following Google recommendations
Use heading tags to emphasize important text
Since heading tags typically make text contained in them larger than normal text on the page, this is a visual cue to users that this text is important and could help them understand something about the type of content underneath the heading text. Multiple heading sizes used in order create a hierarchical structure for your content, making it easier for users to navigate through your document.
Best Practices
Imagine you're writing an outline
Similar to writing an outline for a large paper, put some thought into what the main points and sub-points of the content on the page will be and decide where to use heading tags appropriately.
Avoid:
  • Excessive use of heading tags on a page.
  • Very long headings.
  • Using heading tags only for styling text and not presenting structure.

by the way ......are you 100% sure that this is the only reason that my meta description is not showing?

From the page linked earlier, 
Google's generation of page titles and descriptions (or "snippets") is completely automated and takes into account both the content of a page as well as references to it that appear on the web. The goal of the snippet and title is to best represent and describe each result and explain how it relates to the user's query. We use a number of different sources for this information, including descriptive information in the title and meta tags for each page.
So the 'snippet' is based on the content. it MAY use the meta description sometimes, but not using it doesnt mean ANYTHING wrong with it.  Google simply doesnt use it most of the time.

As noted Google DOESNT usually show the meta description. It normally creates snippet from the CONTENT. 
 
Only sometimes, will it used the meta description. 
 
 
If you 'expect' it to show the meta description, you will be disappointed.
