Written by Aravind   |   Posted: 10/05/2016 05:41 PM IST

Skandamata  is the fifth form of the Goddess Durga. Her name comes from the word, Skanda another name of war god Kartikeya and Mata is the term for mother. As one of the Navadurga, Her worship takes place on the fifth day of Navaratri.

Skandamta is four-armed and rides on a lion. She carries in her hand, a lotus, a water material and a bell. Her one hand is in abhaya mudra. Lord Skanda can be seen in her lap. She possesses four arms out of which two hold the lotus flowers. One of her hands is always in the abhaya mudra and with the other she holds her son Skanda in her lap. Her complexion is white and she is seated on the lotus. So, she is also called Goddess with a lotus-seat (Padmasana).

Skandamata possesses the brilliance of the sun and fulfills all the desires of her devotees. He who is selflessly devoted to her, attains all the achievements and treasures of life. The worship of Skandamātā purifies the heart of a devotee. While worshiping her, the devotee should have absolute control over his senses and mind. He should free himself from worldly bondage and worship her with a single-pointed devotion.

Her worship is twice blessed. When the devotee worships her, Lord Skand, her son in her lap, is automatically worshipped. Thus, the devotee happens to enjoy the grace of Skandmata along with the grace of Lord Skand. If a devotee worships her devoid of selfishness, the Mother blesses them with power and prosperity.

The devotees who worship Skandamata shine with divine splendour. Her worship is ultimately conducive to salvation. She is regularly known as "The Goddess of Fire"
