Navratri 2022 Day 6: The sixth form of the Goddess Parvati is Katyayani. Also known as the fierce and warrior form of Goddess Parvati, she is known to have taken this form to kill the demon Mahishasura. She was born in the house of sage Katya, hence she was named Katyayani. The idol of Adishakti sits on a ferocious lion, and is represented with three eyes, and four hands. Her right hands can be seen in the Varada mudra and Abhaya mudra (representing the removal of fear). With the crescent moon adorning her forehead, two of her left hands carry a lotus and a sword. Devotees believe that worshipping Maa Katyayani helps in getting rid of their sins. It is also said that she improves the marital lives of her devotees.
On the sixth day, devotees need to worship the Kalash and the idol of Goddess Katyayani along with chanting Mantras having stotr path with flowers in hands. The puja should end by performing aarti of Maa Katyayani. After worshipping Goddess Katyayani, you should also worship Lord Brahma and Vishnu
