    About Goddess Katyayani

    Maa Katyayani is depicted as having three eyes and four hands. She holds a sword in her upper left hand, while a lotus flower is seen placed in her lower left hand. Now, let’s talk about her right hand portion. Maa Katyayani right side half shows a calmer positioning; her upper right hand and lower right hand are in protecting and allowing gestures, respectively. Maa Katyayani was born to Sage Katyayan, after he voluntarily held a penance to beget Maa Durga as his daughter. Hence, she is known as Maa Katyayani. The sixth day of Navratri is also considered to be very important by the Sadhaks, as this day is believed to be the appropriate one to observe spiritual practices. It is also believed that if a strict penance is followed to please Maa Katyayani by women who is facing delays in her marriage, Maa definitely eliminates such hurdles.

It is said that worshiping Devi Katyayani helps a follower attain Dharma, Kama, Moksha, Artha. The rituals start with worshiping the Kalash.

Navratri Day Seven – Invoking Katyayani Ma

Katyayani Ma
Katyayani Ma
On Navratri Day Seven, Monday, October 19, 2015, we invoke and worship Katyayani Mata, the 6th manifestation of Durga. Katyayani Mata rules Jupiter. It was the great Rishi and Grammarian, Katyayana, without whose commentary, the Vedas become obscure, who used the power of his Sacred Speech to invoke Adi Shakti, Herself, and She is born as his daughter to save Speech by slaying the Great Buffalo Demon, Mahishasura, who oppresses the sacrifice. The very repository of mantras, which we may intuit as the unfolding lotus, Katyayani Mata blesses Her devotees with her two mudra hand gestures of abhaya, “no fear”, and varada, “the giving of boons.”
She may be invoked and worshipped with the following mantra:


षष्ठी देवी: देवी कात्यायनीKatyayani

षष्ठी देवी: देवी कात्यायनी (Katyayani)
दुर्गा जी का कात्यायनी अवतार (6th Form of Navdurga)
कात्यायनी देवी दुर्गा जी का छठा अवतार हैं। शास्त्रों के अनुसार देवी ने कात्यायन ऋषि के घर उनकी पुत्री के रूप में जन्म लिया, इस कारण इनका नाम कात्यायनी पड़ गया। नवरात्र के छठे दिन कात्यायनी देवी की पूरे श्रद्धा भाव से पूजा की जाती है।
कात्यायनी देवी का स्वरूप
दिव्य रुपा कात्यायनी देवी का शरीर सोने के समाना चमकीला है। चार भुजा धारी माँ कात्यायनी सिंह पर सवार हैं। अपने एक हाथ में तलवार और दूसरे में अपना प्रिय पुष्प कमल लिये हुए हैं। अन्य दो हाथ वरमुद्रा और अभयमुद्रा में हैं। इनका वाहन सिंह हैं। देवी कात्यायनी के नाम और जन्म से जुड़ी एक कथा प्रसिद्ध है।
क्यों पड़ा देवी का नाम कात्यायनी
एक कथा के अनुसार एक वन में कत नाम के एक महर्षि थे उनका एक पुत्र था जिसका नाम कात्य रखा गया। इसके पश्चात कात्य गोत्र में महर्षि कात्यायन ने जन्म लिया। उनकी कोई संतान नहीं थी। मां भगवती को पुत्री के रूप में पाने की इच्छा रखते हुए उन्होंने पराम्बा की कठोर तपस्या की।
महर्षि कात्यायन की तपस्या से प्रसन्न होकर देवी ने उन्हें पुत्री का वरदान दिया। कुछ समय बीतने के बाद राक्षस महिषासुर का अत्याचार अत्यधिक बढ़ गया। तब त्रिदेवों के तेज से एक कन्या ने जन्म लिया और उसका वध कर दिया। कात्य गोत्र में जन्म लेने के कारण देवी का नाम कात्यायनी पड़ गया।
