Third Manifestation of Goddess Durga-(Maa Chandraghanta)

Worship Maa Chandraghanta on the 3rd day of Navaratri

Today is the third day of Navratri. Hence, Goddess is worshipped in Her Chandraghanta form. Those who worship Goddess Chandraghanta on the third day of Navratri are blessed with eternal strength and everlasting happiness. The Goddess wears the half moon in a bell shape. Hence, this form of the Goddess is known as Chandraghanta. She has a golden complexion, possesses ten hands and rides a tiger. She has weapons in her eight hands. And in the remaining two, one hand has a bell and the other is in the pose of giving blessings to Her devotees.
During the battle between the Gods and demons, the horrible sound of the Goddess’ bell or ghanta sent thousands of demon to the abode of death. Her warrini pose shows Her eagerness to destroy all the bad forces which are troubling Her devotess.
Goddess Chandraghanta is the representation of Supreme bliss and knowledge. It is said that by Her blessings, all the sins, sufferings, bad energies etc are eliminated from Her devotees’ life. By riding a tiger She inspires Her devotees to be fearless. By worshipping Goddess Chandraghanta one gets rid of all the worldly sorrows and attains supreme spiritual bliss. The mantra dedicated to Goddess Chandraghanta is given below: Om Devi Chandraghantayayi Namah (108 recitation of this mantra).

Pindaj Pravaarudh chandkopastrkairyuta I Prasadam Tanute Madhyam Chandraghanteti vishrutaa
This means “Oh Goddess Chandraghanta who rides a tiger and holds weapons in Her 10 hands, shower your blessings on me.”
So, chant this mantra and get blessing from Goddess Chandraghanta on the third day of navratri.

The gem among the navratnas associated with Mother Chandraghanta is Hessonite, the gemstone for the manipur chakra– The gem of a planet that has everything to do with worldly desires. Natural hessonite also known as gomedh or gomedhaka is the gemstone of planet Rahu or the North Node of the Moon. People having Rahu as a negative planet in their horoscope or are facing troubles related to health or carrier should do fast on this day and should pray to Maa Chandraghanta to minimize the ill effects of badly placed Rahu and the ones having Rahu as a positive and beneficial planet in their horoscopes should wear a Natural, fine quality, astrologically approved Hessonite (Gomedh) on this day.

वन्दे वाच्छित लाभाय चन्द्रर्घकृत शेखराम्।
सिंहारूढा दशभुजां चन्द्रघण्टा यशंस्वनीम्॥
कंचनाभां मणिपुर स्थितां तृतीयं दुर्गा त्रिनेत्राम्।
खड्ग, गदा, त्रिशूल, चापशंर पद्म कमण्डलु माला वराभीतकराम्॥
पटाम्बर परिधानां मृदुहास्यां नानालंकार भूषिताम्।

कुशिष्याम कुटिलाय वंचकाय निन्दकाय च।
न दातव्यं न दातव्यं न दातव्यं कदाचितम्॥
