Navratri 2020: Worship Maa Chandraghanta on day 3 — Mantra, significance, puja vidhi

The auspicious nine-day festival of Navratri is underway and Thursday is the third day of the festivities. The day three of Durga Puja,  tritiya, is dedicated to Maa Chandraghanta. 

Adorned with the crescent moon on her head, Chandraghanta is the one who is responsible for the establishment of justice and dharma in the world.

The ten-armed Goddess, Mata Chandraghanta is the destroyer of evil and enforcer of good sense and morality. According to some legends, she holds a bell-shaped like a crescent moon in her hand and hence her name -is Chandraghanta. 

This form of Devi Durga is responsible for establishing justice (dharma) in the world. Seated on a tiger, Goddess Chandraghanta is depicted with Dashabhuja or ten hands.

It is believed that Maa Chandraghanta blesses her devotees with grace, bravery and courage. Therefore, all the sins, physical sufferings, mental tribulations and ghostly hurdles of the devotees are eradicated.

Jai Mata Di
