Navaratri – Day 6

The sixth day is dedicated to Maa Katyayani.  In this form, She is the partial expansion that took birth in Sage Katya’s home and gets her energy from trinity and demi Gods.  She is the creative force of nature and the force behind the mental power that controls life and death.  Her 3rd eye symbolizes the inner eye which symbolizes looking inward.

Mantra: Ya Devi Sarvbhuteshu Trishna Roopen Samsthita; Namastasyai Namo Namah; Ya Devi Sarvbhuteshu Tushti Roopen Samsthita; Namastasyai Namo Namah; Chandrahasojjwalkara Shardoolvaravahana; Katyayani Shubham Dadyad Devi Danavaghatini.

Translation: May the ever watchful Durga Devi Katyayani, who holds shining a Chandrahasa (Sword) in her hand and rides a magnificent lion and destroys the demons, bestow welfare on me.
