Navratri Day Nine- Worshipping Goddess Siddhidatri


Navratri Day Nine- Worshipping Goddess Siddhidatri

On the ninth day of Navratri, Goddess Siddhidatri is worshiped. Siddhi means meditative ability and Dhatri means giver. She is seated on a lotus and has four arms which hold a lotus, mace, conch shell and discus. This day is also observed as Mahanavami. As per Hindu mythology, Lord Shiva had attained all the siddhis by the grace of Goddess Siddhidatri and this is the reason why his half body was that of the Goddess; he was known as Ardhanareshwara. 


Puja procedure

On this day, a special havan is performed. After worshipping Goddess Siddhidatri, other Gods and Goddesses are worshiped and mantras from the Durga Saptashati are also recited to invoke the Goddess. The Beej mantra such as Om Hreem Kleem Chamundaye Vichay Namo Namah should be recited 108 times while giving ahuti in the havan. The prasad should be distributed among the devotees present for the havan at the end.
