Mantra to chant :

"Kaali Kaali Mahakaali Kalike Paapharini, Sarva Vighna Hare Devi Narayani Namostute" Devi Siddhiratri is seated upon a lotus, surrounded by her devotees, manifests four arms, and grants 8 siddhis--perfections, to her devotees, as well as 18 other benefits. Siddhiratri devi's famous pilgrimage centre is located in Nanda Parvat in the Himalayas. Special benediction: Most activating of spiritual awareness and consciousness--We see discs of golden light over crown chakras, instilling bhakti--devotional service to the Supreme, and liberation from karmic bindings. The energies of Sri-Sri Sita and Ram manifest fully on the 9th-10th night for the victory celebrations on the 10th day--Vijay Dashani or Dusshera. The 10th day is the victory of Lord Ram over evil and negativity, and the spreading of His Divine Grace in the material world. Offering: 9 oranges or 1 each of all previous 8 fruits and 1 orange; accept and share with opthers in the evening; offer candle/lamp morning-evening. Mentally offer all fragrant flowers, fruits, gems, clothing. This day and night of the navratri should be spent in meditation on her form – even though you may be working – snatching a few moments of mentalsadhna and offering of sindhoor, lotus and chandan physically or mentally will bring fulfillment and satisfaction to you and your family.
