Worship Goddess Skandmata - Fifth Day of Navratri

Worship Goddess Skandmata - Fifth Day of Navratri

The fifth day of the Navratri festival marks the worship of the fifth incarnation of Goddess Durga, Skandmata devi. Lord Kartikeya, also known as Skanda Kumar, is her son who also happens to be the brother of Lord Ganesha. Kartikeya commanded the troop for the war against the demons. Goddess Skandmata is the wife of Lord Shiva and the daughter of Himalaya. She is worshipped in the same manner as the other devis on the previous days of the Navratri festival. Goddess Skandmata is also known by other names like Maa Gauri (as she possesses Gaur Varana), Uma, Parvati (being the daughter of the king of the mountains the Himalayas), Maheshwari (as she has been married to Lord Mahadev) and Padmasana (being seated on the lotus in a meditative pose). 

Goddess Skandmata has four hands and three eyes, her complexion is very bright and fair. She carries lotus flower in her upper two hands while in her right hand below she holds Skanda kumar in his infant form in her lap. The fourth left hand remains in Abhay mudra for blessing her devotees. Goddess Skandamata is also seen seated on a lotus flower very often and that is why she is also known as Devi Padmasana. She symbolizes the pure relationship between a mother and son and that is the significance of the fifth day of the Navratri Puja. 

Mantras and Shlokas

The following mantras and shlokas should be chanted on the fifth day of the Navratri festival so as to please Goddess Skandmata and seek her blessings.

नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमो नमः॥
