Navaratri 3rd day Pooja - Goddess Chandrakanta Devi

The third day of Navaratri Pooja glorifies Goddess Goddess Chandrakanta Devi, who is worshiped with great dedication by devotees. The Pooja is performed on ‘Tritiya Tithi,’ the third day of the waxing phase of the moon in the month of ‘Ashvin.’ The Goddess is depicted riding a tiger, and a crescent moon adorns her forehead. She takes on the name ‘Chandrakanta’ from this attribute, which means ‘the one with a moon on her forehead.’ Goddess Chandrakanta also represents the married form of Goddess Durga. She is depicted with ten different weapons in her arms and remains ever vigilant in her crusade against the forces of evil. However, this fearsome aspect of the Goddess transforms into a compassionate and loving Mother for those who worship her without malice. The essence of her spirit is always accessible to her devotees, and she is ever willing to wipe out their sorrows and afflictions. By praying to her, we can overcome all our negativity and lead a life filled with peace and happiness.

One should perform the Navaratri Pooja on the third day of the festival by offering jasmine flowers to Goddess Chandrakanta since these are said to be her favorite. A strong dose of devotion and meditation also goes a long way towards pleasing the Goddess. Making the sixteen types of offerings and concluding the Pooja with an Aarti (light offering) is also sure to please the Goddess and bring down her blessings for the well-being and prosperity of the family.
