About Day Four Of Navratri
The fourth day of the Navratri is again a very auspicious moment and it must be celebrated with great determination. The fourth day is made to worship goddess Kushmanda. Kushmanda Devi is said to have created the Universe. She is known for her warmth and it is believed that the Universe was a void full of darkness and evil vibrations, but Kushmanda Devi came and scattered light in every dark corner of the Universe and that gave birth to life on Earth. Devi Kushmanda is also said to have eight hands and that is why she is also known as Ashtabhuja Devi. She rides the lion and has a Kamandal, Bada, Dhanush and Kamal in her hands.
“Ku” means little, “Ushma” means energy, and “Anda” means cosmic egg. And hence, this day is dedicated in worshipping the goddess who created the world and every organism living in it.
How To Please The Goddess
Devi Kushmanda is a sweet and warm goddess who appreciates the efforts of all her devotees. So, if you wish to achieve the love of the goddess and the siddhis and Niddhis, you should offer her red coloured flowers such as hibiscus or gudhail.
