कूष्माण्डा माता – Maa Kushmanda – Mantra, Stotra, Kavach, Aarti

Goddess Kushmanda, the fourth form of Goddess Durga, is worshiped on the 4th day of Navratri (Navratri Chaturthi). As per the Hindu mythology, Lord Vishnu was able to start creating the universe when Maa Kushmanda smiled like a flower which blossomed with a bud. She created the world at the time when there was eternal darkness all around. Since she created the universe, she is called Adiswarup and Adishakti. It is said that her complexion glows with a golden light that radiates from her persona.

Goddess Kushmanda rides on the lioness. She is also known as Ashtabhuja Devi as she has eights hands in which she holds Kamandal, bow, arrow, a jar of nectar, discus, mace and a lotus, and in one hand she holds a rosary. It is believed that all the power to bestow Siddhis and Niddhis are located in her Jap Mala. The divine blessing of Maa Kushmanda helps you fulfill your desires and bring light into darkness establishing harmony in your life.

Kushmanda Devi Story

According to Durga Saptshati, Goddess Durga, the supreme goddess of power or Adi-Parashakti, appeared in the form of Siddhidatri from the left side of Lord Shiva’s body. After taking the form of Siddhidariti, Goddess Parvati started to live inside the core of the sun and, hence, came to be known as Kushmanda Devi. Kushmanda Devi became the only goddess who resides in the core of the sun, from where she controls the entire solar system.
