    Maa Siddhidatri worshipped on 9 th Day of Navratri

    The ninth manifestation of Goddess Durga is Siddhidatri, worshipped on the ninth day of Navaratri. Maa Siddhidatri has supernatural healing powers. This Goddess is admired to offer all types of Siddhi (perfection) to her devotees and thus recognized as ‘Siddhidatri’. She is always in a heavenly, happy and charming pose. She has four arms and sits on a lotus. Her arms hold Gada (bludgeon), Chakra, Shankh (scallop shell) and lotus flower.

    Worshipping Goddess Siddhidatri on the final ninth of Durga Navratri bestows all Siddhis to her worshippers and it marks the successful completion of their Navratri Poojan Utsav. Acoording to the Markendey Puran, there are significantly 8 types of “Siddhis” namely – Anima, Mahima, Garima, Laghima, Prapti, Prakyamya, Inshitva, and Vashitva respectively. Thus, by worshipping Devi Siddhidatri, the devotees can certainly attain all Siddhis.

    The Goddess Siddhidatri should be worshipped with the chant of following Mantra:

    या देवी सर्वभू‍तेषु माँ सिद्धिदात्री रूपेण संस्थिता।

    नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमो नम:।।

    Happy Navratri Navmi to all of you and I hope that Maa Siddhidatri grants all your wishes and desires.
