Navratri 2019 Day 4: Worship Goddess Kushmanda; Know Puja Vidhi, Mantra and Aarti

Ma Kushmanda, often considered the fourth incarnation of Ma Durga, represents the earth, as a whole. She is prayed to, for improvement in health, wealth and strength. Popularly known as Ashtabhuja Devi because of her eight hands, Devi Kushmanda is said to have created the whole universe, just by flashing a little bit of her smile. Her name signals her main role: Ku means "a little", Ushma means "warmth" or "energy" and Anda means "cosmic egg".

Worshipped on the fourth day of Navratra, Goddess Kushmanda is said to be really fond of Pumpkin, so it is imperative to offer the vegetable in her puja.
