 - Sakshi Post

On Navratri 2021 Day 3, devotees worship Goddess Chandraghanta. Navratri is dedicated to nine avatars of goddess Durga - Shailaputri, Brahmacharini, Chandraghanta, Kushmanda, Skanda Mata, Katyayani, Kalaratri, Mahagauri, and Siddhidatri.

On the third day of Navratri, people worship Maa Chandraghanta Devi and the Goddess is all about fearlessness and courage. Maa Chandraghanta Devi is also known as Chandrakhanda, Chandika, or Rannchandi. She has half moon-shaped like a bell on her forehead, so, she is called Chandraghanta. The vehicle of Chandraghanta is a tiger or lion and her abode is in Manipura Chakra.

The color of the third day of Navratri is Grey and it signifies the destruction of evil. 

Puja Vidhi:

Wake up early in the morning, take a bath and wear fresh clothes. Offer Kesar, Ganga jal, and Kewra to the goddess and then dress the idol in golden-colored clothes. Offer yellow flowers and lotus to the idol. The naivedhyam for today can be sweets, panchamrit and mishri.
