The Nine Avatars of Maa Durga and significance of the Navadurga:


Maa Shailputri

Goddess Parvati gave birth to Lord Himalaya's daughter following her self-immolation. She was Maa Shailputri in this incarnation. Shail means mountain in Sanskrit. Shailputri, then, refers to the mountain's daughter. On the first day of Navratri, adoration is offered to the goddess Shailputri.


Maa Brahmacharini

After taking on her Kushamnada form, Maa Parvati gave birth at the residence of Daksha Prajapati. In this avatar, Goddess Parvati was a powerful Sati, and people revered her as Goddess Brahmacharini. Lord Mangal, the source of all good fortune, is governed by the Goddess. She underwent extensive penance in order to marry Lord Shiva. She underwent 1,000 years of flower and fruit fasting and another 100 years of eating only leafy vegetables while she slept on the floor as part of her penance.


Maa Chandraghanta

Maa Parvati's married avatar is the goddess Chandraghanta. After marrying Lord Shiva, the Goddess took the name Maa Chandraghanta and decorated her forehead with a half- or crescent-moon. On the third day of Navratri, she is revered since she rules over Shukra.


Maa Kushmanda

Goddess Parvati started living inside the Sun's centre after taking the Siddidatri form so the Sun could release energy to the universe. Maa Kushmanda has the power and capability to live inside the Sun, and the glow and radiance of her body are as luminous as that of the Sun. The Goddess has eight hands and is known as Ashtabhuja Devi.


Maa Skandamata

Goddess Parvati acquired the name Maa Skandamata when she gave birth to Lord Skanda/Lord Kartikeya. Worshippers of this manifestation of Goddess Parvati also receive Lord Kartikeya's blessings. The goddess Skandamata rides the vicious lion while holding the infant Murugan in her lap. She is referred to as Goddess Padmasana and sits atop a lotus flower.


Maa Katyayani

Goddess Parvati assumed the persona of Goddess Katyayani in order to exterminate the monster Mahishasura. It was Parvati's most ferocious incarnation as the Warrior Goddess. On the sixth day of Navratri, adoration is offered to Maa Katyayani. Goddess Parvati is known as Katyayani because, according to Drik Panchang, she was born at the residence of the sage Katya.


Maa Kalaratri

Goddess Kalaratri was the name given to Goddess Parvati after she shed her golden skin in order to slay the demons Shumbha and Nishumbha. She is regarded as Goddess Parvati's most ferocious manifestation. Maa Kalaratri has a dark skin and travels on a donkey. She is portrayed as having four hands; her right hands are in the Abhaya and Varada Mudras, while her left hands are holding a sword and a lethal iron hook.


Maa Mahagauri

Goddess Shailputri was incredibly attractive and endowed with a fair complexion at the age of sixteen. She acquired the name Goddess Mahagauri as a result. Rahu, the planet, is under her rule. Goddess Mahagauri is compared to the conch, the moon, and the white flower of Kunda because of her fair skin tone. She also goes by the name Shwetambardhara since she only dresses in white.


Maa Siddhidatri

Hindu texts claim that at the beginning of the cosmos, Lord Rudra prayed for creation to the shapeless Adi-Parashakti, the supreme Goddess of Power. She descended from Lord Shiva's left side in the shape of Maa Siddhidatri, giving rise to the term Ardha-Narishwar for the entire being. She is the Goddess who holds all Siddhis and grants them to her followers.
