Share1 Bookmarks 66 Reads1 Likes

Skandamātā (स्कन्दमाता) - the name comes from Skanda, an alternate name for the war god Kartikeya, and Mātā, meaning mother. As one of the Navadurga, the worship of Skandamātā takes place on the fifth day of Navaratri. Her abode is in Vishuddha chakra. Skandamātā is four-armed, three-eyed, and rides on a lion. One of her hands is in the fear-dispelling Abhayamudra position while the other is used to hold the infant form of her son Skanda on her lap. Her remaining two hands are typically shown holding lotus flowers.


सर्व मङ्गल माङ्गल्ये शिवे सर्वार्थसाधिके।

शरण्ये त्र्यम्बके गौरि नारायणि नमोऽस्तु ते॥

सभी मंगलो में मङ्गलमयी, कल्याणकारी, सभी मनोरथो को पूर्ण करने वाली,

शरणागत वत्सला, तीन नेत्रो वाली शिव की पत्नी आपको नमस्कार है।

English translation: Auspiciousness of all things auspicious! O consort of Shiva, fulfiller of all our goals! Our only refuge! O three-eyed Gauri! O Narayani! Our salutations to you.
