Chaitra Navratri 2024: Day 9 – Maa Siddhidatri

Maa Siddhidatri is the ninth and final form of Goddess Durga, worshipped on the ninth day of Chaitra Navratri. Her name is derived from two Sanskrit words: “Siddhi”, meaning perfection, and “Datri”, meaning one who grants. She is the bestower of all siddhis (perfections) and spiritual powers. She is depicted as seated on a golden throne, holding a lotus flower in one hand and a trident (trishul) in the other.
