Maa Chandraghanta - 3rd Day of Navratri

She has a half moon on her forehead in the shape of a bell which gives her the name 'Chandraghanta'. She rides a lion, has ten arms, three eyes and possesses three weapons in her hands that demonstrate bravery and strength.
On a table, place the Goddess’s idol or picture and then sprinkle some Ganga Jal. On the table, place some water in a brass or sand pot and keep a coconut above it.
