Kushmanda Devi

|| Kushmanda ||
Fourth day of Navratri decidated to Kushmanda Devi

On the fourth day Mata Durga is worshipped as her Ma Kushmanda swarup. She is depicted as seated on a lion, and possesses eight arms. She resides in solar systems and represents all knowledge. Seven types of weapons are shown in seven hands and prayer beads in her right hand. She likes the offerings of “Kumhde.” Therefore her name “Kushmanda” has become famous. She is also known as ‘Krishnamanda’ and is believed o have created the universe,so she is called as Adi Swarup. She is also called ‘Astbhuja’. Worship of Ma Kushmanda brings light into darkness and ignorance, gives true knowledge,destroys ego, disease, sorrow, depression, ignorance. “Kumbh Bhand” means to see cosmic vivacity in Pindi shape or knowledge of cosmic intricacies in human race. The abode of Mata Kushmanda is in Bhimaparvat

Mantra to chant:

"Om dukha hantraya namah" Kushmanda devi manifests eight arms, holding weapons and a rosary (mala), she is seated on a tiger and her aura is like the sun. Special benediction: This aspect of Devi destroys sorrows of the mind and ego by harmonizing the macro-universe with the inner micro-universe of the individual. This makes available all realms of the external universe to the individual internally through meditation. She is the birthing mother presiding over birth and rebirth. The abode of Kushmanda is in Bhimaparvat. We see streams of dark orange and golden light and golden drops that end in little drops of golden light entering the spinal column. These act like a spiritual surgical knife, destroying negatives and false ego positions. This is a good day to meditate on letting go bad habits/activities, asking forgiveness, being in touch with your true inner reality and position in the universe; your relationship with yourself, the universe, others in it and the Divine.Remind yourself that all power of the self comes through her grace. As the false ego is surrendered - you will get a red blanket of auspicious light covering individuals, homes and place of worship. Offering: Four pears - accept and share with others in the evening; offer candles lamps morning-evening. Mentally offer all fragrant flowers, fruits, gems, clothing.
