Mother Siddhidatri

The worship of Mother Siddhidatri on the Ninth day of Navaratri

Mother Siddhidatri is worshiped on the ninth and final day of Navaratri. The worship of Siddhidatri, the ninth form of the mother Durga, brings great siddhi (spiritual powers) to her devotees. Siddhidatri Mata is also considered another form of Mother Saraswati. The festival of Dusshera is celebrated on the next day after worshipping Siddhidatari Ma.

Mother Siddhidatri's Form 

The form of Goddess Siddhidathri is very gentle, she has four arms. In the right arm, the mother has taken chakra and (gada) mace and in the left arm there is a conch and lotus flower. There is also a Lotus flower on the seat of Mother Siddhidatri. Mother's vehicle is the lion. This day is also called Ramanavmi. The next day of the Shardhi Navaratri, that is, the tenth day is celebrated as the victory of Rama over Ravana.

The puja method is as follows-

On this day, Mother Siddhidatri should be offered nine types of flowers, fruits, navaan prasad, and food with navras(9 tastes). First of all, you must worship the kalash (holy urn) by meditating about all the gods and goddesses in it. After this, you must chant the mantras of the Mother Siddhidatri and worship her. On this day, you must offer food to nine girls and only then food should be eaten. With this, Mother Siddhidatri is pleased and with her blessings, all your deteriorating work will begin to prosper.




Story of mother Siddhidatri

Lord Shiva also received many spiritual powers or achievements with the help of Mother Siddhidatri. It was with the grace of the Mother that Mahadev's half-body transformed into a Goddess and he became famous as Shiva Ardhanareshwar(halfwoman). According to Shiva Purana, Lord Brahma, the creator of the Universe, noticed that the number of animals, birds and humans was not growing. According to Akashwani, then Brahmaji vowed to create a maithuni (reproduction)of the Universe. When Brahma asked Lord Vishnu about this, he asked Brahama  to worship Lord Mahadev.

After this Brahmaji practiced penance to satisfy Shiva with Shakti. Parmatma Shiva was satisfied with the  penance of Brahmaji, who came to  him by assuming the form of Ardhanareshvar(halfman and half woman). After this he separated the part of the goddess power from his body. Then Brahmaji praised and honoured  that supreme Shakti. Being pleased with the praise of Brahma, Shakti created another power like her own, who, was born as Himalaya's daughter Parvati, and met Mahadev.

Mantra of Mata Siddhidathri:

Ya Goddess Sarvabhuteshu Mother Siddhidithri Rupen Sanstia,

Namastasye Namastasye Namastasye Namo Namah.
