  • If milk or items made of milk are offered to Goddess on the third day of Navratri, suffering ends
  • During Navratri, worship Maa Chandraghanta for knowledge and bliss
  • Maa Chandraghanta is the third reincarnation of goddess Durga

Maa Chandraghanta is the third reincarnation of Goddess Durga. She represents knowledge, justice and bliss. Maa Chandraghanta spells doom for enemies but is loving and compassionate for the devotees. She is known to be the married form of Maa Parvati who started wearing half-moon after her marriage to Lord Shiva. She has got Chandramauli Shivji as her husband. She came to be known as Chandraghanta because her forehead is decorated with a crescent moon, which forms the shape of a bell.

Her third eye is considered to be open all the time. This means she is ready to battle the demons. Maa Chandraghanta is usually portrayed with ten hands who has Trishul, Gada, Sword, and Kamandal in her four left hands and her fifth left hand is in Varada Mudra. In the rest of her four hands she carries a lotus flower, an Arrow, a Dhanush and Japa Mala and keeps the fifth right hand in Abhaya Mudra.
