Surrounded by Siddhas, Gandharvas, Yakshas, Demons and Gods who are worshiping her, in this form Durga removes ignorance and she provides the knowledge to realize That or Brahman. Basically in this form, the almighty Goddess provides ‘Siddhi’ or knowledge thus her name Siddhidatri or the one who gives knowledge. She is one who was worshiped by Lord Shiva to become in the form of Goddess Ardhnarishwara, then Goddess Shakti Appeared from the left side of Lord Shiva.

 

Maa Siddhidatri Mantra; Siddha Gandharva yakshadhiyie asuraira marairapi, sevya maana sadaa bhooyaath siddhidaa siddhidaayaani.

 

Which means, May the ever victorious Siddhidayini Ma Durga, who is always worshipped by the hordes of Siddha, Gandharva, Yaksha, Asura and Deva, bestow success at my every venture.
