Goddess Worshipped on the third day of Navratri: Maa Chandraghanta

Posted on


With an imagery of Goddess Shakti roaring in anger this form of Shakti is the more furious one. She is completely different from those earlier forms and shows when provoked she can be the terrible or malevolent. The name Chandraghanta comes from the crescent moon worn by her on the head. She rides a tiger, is endowed with profound anger and violence and is also known as Chandra-Khanda devi.

She helps the worshipper with any sort of Benefit is bhoot-pret badha. According to the legend in this form, Durga uses her divine sound of the temple bells to get rid of all the evil and negative energies.

Chandraghanta Devi Mantra: Prindajapra vararoodha chandakopstha kairyutha, prasadam thanuthe mahyum Chandraghantethi vishrutha

Which means- May that Durga Devi, who rides on Tiger, who is endowed with intense anger and violence and is renowned by the name of Maa Chandraghanta, bestow her grace on me.
