The fourth day of Navratri is dedicated to worshipping Goddess Kushmanda, the fourth manifestation of the Nava Durga. Ku stands for little, Ushma for energy, and Anda for the cosmic egg. As a result, the Goddess is the universe’s energy source. Here, the entire cosmos is depicted as an egg, and Devi is tasked with dispelling the gloom with her heavenly smile. Goddess Parvati thought to reside in the sun’s core and release energy into the universe, assumed the form of Goddess Kushmanda. She has healing abilities and is as radiant as the sun. The Goddess has eight hands and rides a lioness. In her left hand, she has Amrit Kalash, Jap Mala, Gada, and Chakra, while in her right, she has Kamandal, Dhanush, Bada, and Kamal.
Worshipping at temples gives us tremendous strength and wisdom, yet many individuals are not destined to go to Kedarnath or Mata Devi temple and receive darshan. Nakshatrika offers a special online darshan to all of these individuals. Additionally, Nakshatrika can make reservations for their clients at the temples.
History and origin of Goddess Kushmanda:
It takes place during a time when the universe was just a huge, dark emptiness. Nowhere could be found any signs of the outside world. But suddenly, a glorious light that is always present spread forth and illuminated every crevice of the nothingness. This ocean of light had no shape. It started to take on a precise form and eventually took on the appearance of a Divine Lady. She was the very embodiment of Goddess Kushmanda. The universe was created as a result of Goddess Kushmanda’s silent smile. She was responsible for creating the cosmic egg. The darkness vanished completely with her smile, giving rise to a completely new cosmos. With her quiet grin, she infused the universe with life and light.
The earth, the sun, planets, stars, galaxies, and all other celestial bodies were made. But the Sun God was necessary for the world to support life. The Goddess, therefore, positioned herself between the sun. She then evolved into the source of vital energy and light. The sun’s force is embodied in Goddess Kushmanda, who gives the planet life. As a result, when she sits inside the Sun God’s core, she is the source of all energy. She exuded a body of energy from her smile. And light and creation emerged from that powerful energy. When Gods, lower-class people, or other celestial entities honour her, she always grins.
