ESpiritual: On 3rd Navratri control your fire and negative energies


Dr KK Aggarwal    23 September 2017

Chandraghanta is worshipped on the third day of Navratri

SHE is shown with golden skin and riding a tiger. She is depicted with 10 hands and 3 eyes with a crescent moon on the head.

Eight of HER hands display weapons. The rest two are in the mudras or gestures of boon giving and stopping harm (Varada and abhay mudra) indicating protection.

Out of eight hands, 5 hold Bow and arrow (to bend, focus, one point determination; bow and arrows also represent energy; holding both the bow and arrows in one hand indicates control over both potential and kinetic energies), trishul (balance), sword (sharp intelligence) and mace (power to destroy the evil). The remaining three hands hold a rosary (tapas), lotus (detached attachment) and Kamandalu (acceptance).

In Ayurveda, SHE represents the control over the fire element.

In Yogashastra, SHE represents the solar or Manipura Chakra with the Bija sound RAM.

Sound of her bell terrifies demons as well as all enemies.

SHE represents protector and bravery.

Spiritual message on the 3rd Navratri: One should continuously (beaded rosary) control the fire (solar plexus) within by using our sharp intelligence (sword) and balancing the mind (Trishul) by focusing on one point (arrow and bow), practicing detached attachment (lotus), accepting things as they are (Kamandalu) and killing the negative energies by using gada (power) when needed.
