Maa Katyayani: Navratri

Maa Katyayani: Navratri

चन्द्रहासोज्जवलकरा शार्दूलावरवाहना।
कात्यायनी शुभं दद्यादेवी दानव घातिनी॥ 

Day six is for Divine Katyayani having three eyes and four hands.

The sixth form of Mother Durga is known as ‘Katyayani’, who is worshiped on the six day of Navaratri. The legend behind her name goes thus: Once upon a time, there was a great sage called Kata, who had a son named Katya.

Kata was very famous and renowned in the lineage of saints. He underwent long austerities and penance in order to receive the grace of the Mother Goddess. He wished to have a daughter in the form of a goddess.

According to his wish and desire the Mother Goddess granted his request. Katyayani was born to Kata as an avatar of Durga.

Jai Maa Ambe 🙂
