NEW DELHI: The auspicious nine-day pageant of Navratri is underway and Monday (October 19) is the third day of the festivities. The day three of Durga Puja, i.e. tritiya, is devoted to Maa Chandraghanta. 

Adorned with the crescent moon on her head, Chandraghanta is the one who’s liable for the institution of justice and dharma on this planet.

 The ten-armed Goddess, Mata Chandraghanta is the destroyer of evil and enforcer of excellent sense and morality. In keeping with some legends, she holds a bell-shaped like a crescent moon in her hand and therefore her title – Chandraghanta. This type of Devi Durga is liable for establishing justice (dharma) on this planet. Seated on a tiger, Goddess Chandraghanta is depicted with Dashabhuja or ten fingers.

It’s believed that Maa Chandraghanta blesses her devotees with grace, bravery and braveness. Due to this fact, all of the sins, bodily sufferings, psychological tribulations and ghostly hurdles of the devotees are eradicated.


Chant these mantras to hunt Maa Chandraghanta’s blessings:

पिण्डजप्रवरारूढ़ा चण्डकोपास्त्रकैर्युता
प्रसादं तनुते मह्यं चन्द्रघण्टेति विश्रुता
Pindaajpravrarudha CHandakopastankaeryuta
Prasad tanute chandraghanteti vishruta
