Devi Avatar: Maa Skandamata


On the 5th day of the Shardiya Navratri, Maa Skandamata is worshipped. The day commemorates the mother of ‘Skanda’ (Kartikeya) that’s why the name. Paying homage to the goddess balances your Vishuddh Chakra, and removes the blockage in your creative and intellectual wisdom.



She mounts a lion and sits in a lotus position, due to which she’s also known as Goddess Padmasana. The goddess has four arms. She carries her son, Skanda Kumar in her right arm, the upper two arms hold a lotus flower each, and her right lower arm is raised in the Abhay mudra. According to a legend, it’s believed that after completing her meditation Goddess Skandamata married Lord Shiva and gave birth to a boy, Skanda. Under the leadership of Lord Skanda, the deities triumphed over the demons. The 5th day of the Shardiya Navratri celebrates the mother of Skanda, Goddess Skandamata who imbues us with good values, health, wealth, and prosperity. It’s auspicious to use orange color and bananas while paying homage to the goddess.
