Maa Siddhidhatri Puja 2022: Legend Associated With This Day

In ancient times, when the world was a deep void enveloped in darkness, with no trace of life, Goddess Kushmanda gave a smiling and joyous look at the world. Smile is the sign of life, usually, and hence, Goddess' divine and radiant smile bestowed life to the universe. Creation began and the divine Trinity (Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva) were born, as the first divine beings. Lord Shiva prayed to the goddess to bless him with perfection. As a response to this, another form of goddess emerged from her, who empowered Lord Shiva with 18 aspects of perfection.

Lord Shiva, imbibed Ashtasiddhis (8 aspects of perfection) along with 10 more aspects of perfection. Lord Brahma found it difficult to create female and male forms for the first time and at this point goddess intervened and created Ardhanareeshwara from Lord Shiva's form. Half of this form was man, and the other half was woman. Lord Brahma, who was challenged by the inability to create a human form, was infused with tremendous powers to create the universe and its inhabitants. Therefore, Goddess Siddhidatri empowered both Lord Brahma and Lord Shiva by enhancing their capabilities.

जय सिद्धिदात्री मां, तू भक्तों की दाता।
तू भक्तों की रक्षक, तू दासों की माता।
तेरे नाम से मन की होती है शुद्धि।
कठिन काम सिद्ध करती हो तुम।
जभी हाथ सेवक के सिर धरती हो तुम।
तेरी पूजा में तो ना कोई विधि है।
तू जगदम्बे दाती तू सर्व सिद्धि है।
रविवार को तेरा सुमिरन करे जो।
तू सब काज उसके करती है पूरे।
कभी काम उसके रहे ना अधूरे।
तुम्हारी दया और तुम्हारी यह माया।
रखे जिसके सिर पर मैया अपनी छाया।
सर्व सिद्धि दाती वह है भाग्यशाली।
जो हैं तेरे दर का ही अंबे सवाली।
हिमाचल है पर्वत जहां वास तेरा।
महा नंदा मंदिर में है वास तेरा।
मुझे आसरा है तुम्हारा ही माता।
भक्ति है सवाली तू जिसकी दाता।

Maa Siddhidhatri Puja 2022: Significance

The ninth day of Navaratri is the concluding day, in which Ma Siddidatri is worshipped. Siddhi translates to "perfect grasp" of a discipline and dhatri, means one who gives. So, Goddess Siddhidaatri empowers the practitioner with the siddhi/proficiency/grasp over the occult vidyas/occult sciences. She bestows perfection, wisdom, and spiritual knowledge to those in the innermost circle of her devotees and those who genuinely worship her. She is also worshipped by the world of demons, but she is surrounded by devatas all the time.

The Goddess is another powerful avatar of Adishakti, the primary goddess who is the deity for Lord Shiva himself. Since she grants her devotees with whatever they ask her for, she is called Siddhidatri (the goddess who grants mastery of paranormal and worldly vidyas/disciplines). Those intending to enhance their spirituality must worship Goddess Siddhidatri.
