HAPPY DUSSEHRA DAY 4. Chaturthi

Greetings to all on the eve of Chaturthi, the 4th day of DUSSEHRA

सुरासम्पूर्णकलशं रुधिराप्लुतमेव च ।
दधाना हस्तपद्माभ्यां कूष्माण्डा शुभदास्तु मे ॥

Surāsampūrṇakalaśaṁ rudhirāplutamēva cha |
Dadhānā hastapadmābhyāṁ kūṣmāṇḍā śubhadāstu mē ||

‘Goddess Kushmanda who holds two pitchers full of Madira and Blood in her lotus hands, be propitious to me.’

Kushmanda is the fourth form of the mother goddess and is worshipped on the fourth day of Navaratri. The meaning of the name ‘Ku-shm-anda’ is as follows: ‘Ku’ = a little; ‘ushma’ = ‘warmth’; ‘anda’ = ‘the cosmic egg’. So she is considered the creator of the universe. The universe was no more than a void full of darkness, until her light spreads in all directions like rays from the sun. Often she is depicted as having eight or ten hands

She holds weapons, glitter, rosary, etc., in her hands, and she rides a lion.

Regards,
YS Yadav,
State President,
