Day 6 of Navaratri is here, and today we celebrate Katyayani. Some versions say she was born to the sage Katyayana Rishi, as he had asked the divine for maa Durga to be born to her after a great extent of Tapas— the Tridev (Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva) were enraged and as a result she was born with the abilities of all deities to Katyayana Rishi as Katyayani. An alternative version would be that Katyayana Rishi was the first to worship her and hence her name came about to be Katyayani. It is also said that she was prayed to by Radha, Sita and Rukmini for good spouses.
Maa Katyayani resides in the sixth chakra, the Ajna chakra. This chakra is placed in the third- eye area, and when you focus on this point while praying to her, she will bestow upon you good health and wealth, and if you pray to her for a good spouse wholeheartedly she will bless her devotee with one. By praying to her, you will have great perseverance and strength getting through disease, sorrows and fears. In order to remove the sins from many lives and make your karmic slate clean, it is said that one must religiously pray to Maa Katyayani.
As we move forward, we need to have this perseverance to get through these times, to have the strength and confidence that we can get through the good, bad and ugly.
