Navratri Day 6: How to worship Maa Katyayani? All you need to know


On the day 6 of Navratri, Maa Katyayani is worshipped. As per the religious texts, Goddess Parvati was born at the home of sage Katya and this is why, this form of Goddess Parvati is known as Katyayani. Ancient texts mention that Maa Katyayani was created to combine the powers of Gods Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva to kill demon Mahishasur. In the course of time, Mahishasura got to know about Katyayani from Chandha and Mundha, who went on to tell him about her mesmerising beauty. Mahishasur then sent her a marriage proposal with Dundubhi as his messenger. Goddess Katyayani smiled on receiving the proposal and told Dundubhi that according to her family tradition, Mahishasur will have to defeat her in a fight to get married to her.

About Maa Katyayani

Goddess Katyayani rides on a lion and has four hands. The Goddess carries lotus flower and sword in her left hands while her right hands are in Abhaya and Varada Mudras. It is believed that planet Brihaspati is governed by Goddess Katyayani.

Katyayani and Mahishasura had a fierce battle where Mahishasur transformed himself into a buffalo while the goddess struggled to fight him. However, she then climbed onto his back and surprised him with her move. Unable to shake her off, Mahishasur died as Katyayani placed her foot on the demon’s neck and then pierced her Trishul into his neck and cut his head off.
