SPRING NAVA RATRI ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ KATYAYANI ~*~ 6th Day

                                                                       6th Day

Katyayani. The son of "Kat" as "Katya".  Rishi Katyayan was born in this "Katya" lineage. Katyayan had observed great penance, it was his wish that Maa Durga be born as his daughter. The Goddess acceded to his request. Meanwhile, army of the powerful demon Mahishasura, who could only be killed by a warrior Goddess, had reached heaven to overthrow the Gods. Thus the trinity of Gods – Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva, got infuriated and they created the Goddess Durga, who was a culmination of the powers of all deities. Sage Katyayana had the first privilege to worship her, so she was also named Katyayani. As a result she took birth as a daughter of Katyayan and herefore her name is "Katyayani". She is a manifestation of Sri Laxmi-ji, has three eyes and eight hands. These are eight types of weapons missiles in her seven hands. Her vehicle is the Lion.  This is the daughter form of Durga. Here is she a loving daughter. She is the epitome of love but won’t hesitate to rise up in anger to defend righteousness and Dharma. It is believed that Maa Katyayani persistently battles against evil and deceitful entities.  To get Lord Krishna as their husband the gopis worshiped Maa Katyayani Devi in Vraj.  So she is established as the Queen of Vraj. She blesses and protects. Special benediction: Kaatyayani devi is very protective and grants boons and fulfils wishes–especially relating to obtaining the association of the Supreme Divine–Sri Krishna. A yellow light of satisfaction emnates from her eyes and spreading into the eyes of people and allowing one to be satisfied with what is being seen and received in life. She radiates crescent-shaped yellow energies, which descend at our finger tips, empowering us to do good and appropriate action.
