Maa Siddhidatri – Overview

 

Goddess Siddhidatri, who is worshipped on the ninth day of Navratri, is the ninth manifestation of Goddess Durga (NavaDurga). She is Maa Parvati’s ultimate manifestation. Sitting atop a perfectly blossomed lotus or a lion, Maa Siddhidatri has four hands and is clutching a discus, conch shell, trident, and mace.

The goddess Siddhidatri rides the lion while seated on a Lotus. She is pictured with four hands. The Goddess is holding a lotus flower in her left hand, a chakra in her right hand, a gada in her left hand, and a shankh in her left hand.

The Goddess is endowed with eight supernatural abilities, or siddhis, called AshtaShiddhi. These are Ishitva, Vashitva, Anima, Mahima, Garima, Laghima, Prapti, Prakambya, and Garima.

Garima refers to being impossibly heavy, Anima refers to shrinking one’s body to the size of an atom, and Mahima refers to expanding one’s body to an infinitesimally enormous size.

Laghima denotes becoming airy, Prapti denotes having omnipresence, Prakambya denotes fulfilling one’s desires, Ishitva denotes having total authority, and Vashitva denotes the ability to control everyone. Siddhidatri blessed Lord Shiva by bestowing him with all eight abilities.

The Story of Maa Siddhidatri

 

The universe was completely dark before it was created, and there was no indication of life. The universe was created by Goddess Kushmanda’s radiant smile. The Trimurti was afterwards created by Maa Kushamanda: Bramha, the Creator God; Vishnu, the preservation God; Shiva, the destroyer god.

As they came into being, Lord Shiva pleaded with Adishakti to grant him perfection. Therefore, Maa Kushmanda created a different goddess who gave Lord Shiva 18 different Siddhis. These included the ten forms of perfection that Lord Krishna spoke about, as well as the eight supernatural powers known as AshtaSiddhi. She was hence referred to as Siddhidatri or the giver of Siddhis.

For the rest of the cosmos, Lord Bramha had to build it. But in order to create life in the universe, he needs a man and a woman. Lord Brahma worshipped Goddess Siddhidatri and begged for assistance because he was unable to identify a solution. The goddess transformed half of Lord Shiva’s body by herself in order to solve Lord Brahma’s problem.

Lord Shiva was referred to as Ardhanarishvara after that. After viewing Ardhnarishwar, Lord Brahma recognised the distinction between a man and a woman. He was able to bring life to the world as a result.

Maa Siddhidatri and her significance

 

The goddess Maa Siddhidatri is regarded as having power over the planet Ketu. To counteract the negative effects of malefic Ketu in a horoscope, perform Maa Siddhidatri puja. She is credited with eradicating negative thoughts and substituting them with constructive ones. A devotee of Maa Siddhidatri may discover inner tranquilly and spiritual fulfilment.

By Maa Siddhidatri’s grace, one can also overcome hurdles in life like worry, anxiety, and dread. Sincere prayers from devotees result in prosperity, strength, wisdom, and knowledge in life.

She is highly revered among Siddhas who engage in intense ascetic practises like meditation in order to acquire various Siddhis. Such Siddhis are difficult to achieve since they require the devotee to go through a number of stages in order to activate their innate spiritual abilities.

When a devotee meditates on the Goddess Siddhidhatri with complete devotion, she is reputed to exhibit her supreme compassion in addition to bestowing wishes to siddhis, ascetics, or sages.

We reach Siddhidatri, She Who Grants Perfection, the Goddess’ ninth and last form as we make our way toward Absolute Fulfilment. Each day of Navaratri is significant, but the ninth day is the most significant because it marks the end of Durga puja.

Siddhi is an acronym for success, accomplishment, fulfilment, and total attainment. It has to do with reaching one’s objectives successfully. It can also signify preparation or maturity, having reached the appropriate age or having the appropriate mindset.

However, in the context of spirituality, siddhi is defined as the acquisition of exceptional abilities, such as superhuman, telepathic, and intuitive skills; these abilities are frequently connected with but are not limited to the eight supernatural powers.
