Skand Mata - Navratra day - 5

Skanda Mata:
The fifth swaroop of Ma Durga is Skand Mata. Kumar Kartikeya is 'Skand' and his mother, Parvati, is Skanda mata. Skand is the commander-in-chief of all the Gods. He rides a peacock. Praying to Skanda Mata, not only brings blessings from the Goddess but also from Lord Kartikeya.

Skanda Mata carries the child form of Kartikeya in her lap and rides a Lion. She has 4 arms.

So wonderful is the blessing of Skanda Mata that the devotee experiences every heavenly joy and fulfillment on earth. She blesses one with every happiness. Skanda also bestows the devotee with powers of success and victory. One should therefore, praise Skanda Mata with steadfast devotion and a clear heart.

Durga Mantra: 

This powerful Mantra is taken from the Fifth Chapter of Durga Saptasati. The Gods bow 

before the Goddess Jagdamba and praise her various forms, that exist within each person, 

in the form of Courage, Wealth, Forgiveness, Kindness, Thirst etc.
