Devi Avatar: MAA KUSHMANDA
The 4th day of Shardiya Navratri commemorates Maa Kushmanda, avatar of Maa Bhagwati. As the popular belief states, with just a flash of her radiant smile the goddess created the whole universe (Brahmanda) and thus the name, Kushmanda came into being. It is also believed that when the universe had no form and darkness cocooned it, Maa Kushmanda with her laughter spawned the universe to the form that we know today. Due to this, she’s known as Aadishakti or Aadiswaroopa of the universe. Maa Kushmanda has 8 arms, which popularised her another name Ashtbhuja. Her seven hands carry Kamandal, Bow, Arrow, Lotus flower, Amrit Kalash, Chakra, and Gada, and the eighth hand carries a Jap mala which delivers Siddhis and Niddhis. The goddess likes ‘Malpua’ as her offering. Worshipping Maa Kushmanda activates the Anahat Chakra, which cures all health ailments, sadness, and ends your sorrows.
