Maa Kushmanda - 4th Day of Navratri

On the fourth day of Navratri, Goddess Kushmanda is worshipped. Her name is formed with three words — 'Ku', 'Ushma' and 'Anda'; Ku stands for little, Ushma stands for warmth and Anda means egg. It stands for someone who created this universe as a small cosmic egg. It is believed that the Goddess created this universe with her smile. She has eight arms holding Kamandalu, Gada, Chakra, Dhanush, lotus-flowers and other edges and a japmala. She rides a lion and since she has eight arms, she is also known as 'Devi AshtaBhuja'. She blesses her devotees with brightness, peace, and clarity.

To seek her blessings, the mantra given below can be chanted on the 4th day of Navratri:

 

Ya Devi sarvabhuteshu Ma Kushmanda Rupena Samsthita
Namastasyai Namastasyai Namastasyai Namo Namah
