Katyayani Mantra: Meaning, Significance and Benefits

Girls of the marriageable age recite these mantras to receive the blessings of maa Katyayani for fast engagement. Worshiping Maa Katyayani removes obstacles that stand in the way of love and blesses the devotees with a fruitful and happy marriage. Mata Katyayaniis one of the nine forms of goddess Durga and is mostly worshiped during the nine days of Navratri. The divine goddess maa durga is the manifestation of shakti, the other half of lord shiva, and maa Katyayani is one of the many forms of Durga. Also known as the representative of feminine energy, maa Katyayani remains the fierce manifestation of female energy. Maa Katyayani is considered the sixth form of Durga and is accordingly worshiped on the sixth day of Navratri.

The demon mahishasura once gained a lot of power by obtaining boons and wreaked havoc on the lives of everyone. When he and his henchmen were getting out of control and there was no one who could stop him, the three most powerful gods of Hindu mythology, Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva came together to combine their powers. With the combination of the strengths and might of all three gods, they created a fire from which goddess Katyayani came to life. She was the divine entity of female energy and power who had the brilliance of uncountable suns. Her form was that of a warrior who had three eyes and long black hair.

She had 18 arms and in each arm, she was assigned various war weapons and objects that represented battle and victory. She held, in each of her arms many powerful weapons like a trident, discus, conch, dart, sword and shield, bow and arrows, thunderbolt, mace and battle-axe, rosary, and rose water. Mounting the lion which is her vahana, she charged forward with the intention to kill and destroy mahishasur and his henchmen. Fearing her, Mahishasur ran and hid inside a dead buffalo. But his efforts were all in vain as he couldn’t escape goddess Katyayani’s anger and was slain by her.

In the Bhagavata Purana, it is written that worshiping the Mata Katyayani will bring fortune to those who are looking to get married and for a devoting husband. Mostly known as Katyayani vrata, it was firstly followed by the gopis(maiden) of bhir Bhoomi, the land of Krishna to attain Krishna as their husband. Usually followed during the winter months of Margashirsha, young girls follow strict rules like partial fasting to pray and please goddess Katyayani.
