Chandraghanta


The third aspect of Maa Durga’s power is Devi Chandraghanta. She is worshipped on 3rd day of Navratri. She has a half moon (Chandra) in the shape of a bell(ghanta) on her forehead, therefore she is called Devi Chandraghanta. Color of her skin is shining like that of gold. She has 10 hands and has weapons like bow and arrow, swords etc. Her vehicle is a lion. She is always ready to fight battles. The sound of bells made by her is enough to scare the mightiest and cruelest of all demons. Third day of Durga Upasana is of great importance. As she is ever ready to fight battles, so she is quick to remove all obstacles and misfortunes of her devotees. Her vehicle is Lion, so whoever worships her becomes brave and strong like a lion.
