The fifth form of Maa Durga is that of Skandamata. Being the mother of Lord Skanda, she is known as Skandmata. They are worshiped on the fifth day of Navratri-puja. On this day, the mind of the seeker is situated in the ‘pure’ cycle. Lord Skanda sits on his lap in child form. Skandamata has four arms. This right hand is holding Lord Skanda in the lap and the lotus flower in the other. Her one left arm is in boon form and the other arm also has lotus flower.
Its color is completely white. She sits on the lotus seat. For that reason, she is also known as Padmasana Devi. She rides a lion. After meditating on the mother, the seeker moves towards a pure conscious form. Her mind is completely engrossed as Padmasana Maa Skandamata, freed from all cosmic, worldly, mystic bonds. At this time, the seeker should move towards worship with full caution. He should continue on the path of cultivation while keeping all his meditations focused. Worshiping Maa Skandamata fulfills all the wishes of the devotee.
The seeker begins to experience ultimate peace and happiness in the world of death itself. For him, the gate of salvation is automatically accessible. Along with the worship of Skandmata, the worship of Skanda God is also done on its own. Only this goddess has this specialty, so the seeker should pay special attention to the worship of Skandamata.
Being the goddess presiding over the sun, their worshipers are endowed with supernatural aura. This supernatural halo is always a circular circumference. Therefore, we should try to come to the mother’s shelter by keeping the mind pure with concentration. There is no better way to relieve the sufferings of this terrible death world and make the path of salvation accessible. Read More…
