Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi on Sunday bowed to Maa Siddhidatri on the occasion of Mahanavmi. She is worshipped on the ninth day of Navratri, the ninth form of Goddess Durga.
Shri Narendra Modi said that may the blessings of Maa Siddhidatri bring success in everyone’s life.
is the final form of Durga, celebrated on the final night of Navaratri. Her name means "giver of supernatural power," and Hindus believe she bestows blessings upon all deities and devotees of the faith. Siddhidatri grants wisdom and insight to those who appeal to her, and Hindus believe that she can do the same for deities who worship her as well. Like some of Durga's other manifestations, Siddhidatri rides a lion. She has four limbs and carries a trident, a spinning disc called a Sudarshana Chakra, a conch shell, and a lotus. The conch, called a shankha, represents longevity, while the spinning disc symbolizes the soul or timelessness.
