Navratri 2021 4th Day: Know About Kushmanda Devi Puja Vidhi, Stotras

Kushmanda Devi is known as Ashtabhuja as she has eight hands and rides a lioness. She holds the Kamandal, Dhanush, Bada and Kamal in the four right hands and Amrit Kalash, Jap Mala, Gada and Chakra in the left hands.

According to scriptures, when Lord Vishnu started creating the universe, Kushmanda Devi smiled like a lotus flower and dispelled the darkness. Maa Kushmanda is hence said to create the universe from ‘nothing’. Her smile is the source of the universe and the planets and stars appeared after that.


Devotees chant Om Devi Kushmandayai Namah a hundred and eight times in front of the Kalash that was installed on the first day of Navratri.

Prarthana: Surasampurna Kalasham Rudhiraplutameva Cha || Dadhana Hastapadmabhyam Kushmanda Shubhadastu Me

Stuti: Ya Devi Sarvabhuteshu Maa Kushmanda Rupena Samsthita || Namastasyai Namastasyai Namastasyai Namo Namah

                             jai Mata Di
