6th Day of Navratri - Maa Katyayani

Wednesday, October 21, 2020

On the 6th day of Navratri, Maa Katyayani is worshipped. As per Hindu mythology, Goddess Parvati took the form of  Maa Katyayini to kill the demon Mahishasura. Katyayini appears as a warrior Goddess. She took birth as the daughter of Sage Katyayan and that is why she is known as Katyayani. She is represented by four arms. Her upper left hand has a sword and her lower left hand represents lotus. It is believed that while worshipping the Goddess, her devotees feel 'Agya Chakra' which shows them the path to sacrificing everything for her and she fulfills the wishes of her worshippers. Praying to Maa Katyayini helps in improving one’s marital life and provides relief to her devotees from all the troubles in their life. 

Expert Vedic astrologers at Astroyogi could guide you on how to perform Navratri Poojas based on a detailed horoscope analysis.

 

According to Hindu mythology, sage Katyayana performed penance to get Goddess Durga as his daughter. Goddess Durga accepted his request and was born in the ashram of Katyayana. Meanwhile, Mahishasur’s army reached heaven to overthrow the Gods and that is when the deities, Brahma, Vishnu, and Mahesha requested Goddess Durga to end the torment of Mahishasur. Sage Katyayana was the first one who got the privilege to worship her, hence the name Katyayani. It is believed that the Goddess took birth on Krishna Chaturdashi and Katyayana worshipped her on Shukla Saptami, Ashtami, and Navmi. On the tenth day, she killed Mahishasur.
