Maa Siddhidatri Story- Ninth Day of Navratri

When the universal mother was gripped with the idea of projecting creation, she, first of all, created lord Shiva. During the beginning of the creation of the universe, Lord Shiva worshiped Adi Parashakti to endow him with perfections. For this purpose, the universal mother (Durga) produced goddess Siddhidatri from her own person. Mythology says that Lord Shiva was blessed by Siddhidatri by giving all the eight Siddhis of rare perfections and powers. Lord Shiva was thereafter was also glorified by the name Ardhanariswar. She thus appeared from the left half of Shiva.

Having acquired the siddhis from goddess Siddhidatri lord Shiva created Lord Vishnu who in turn created lord Brahma who was entrusted with the task of the creation whereas lord Vishnu got the task of protection and Lord Shiva that of destruction.

Maa Siddhidatri Aarti – Ninth Day of Navratri

जय सिद्धिदात्री माँ तू सिद्धि की दाता। तु भक्तों की रक्षक तू दासों की माता॥

तेरा नाम लेते ही मिलती है सिद्धि। तेरे नाम से मन की होती है शुद्धि॥

कठिन काम सिद्ध करती हो तुम। जभी हाथ सेवक के सिर धरती हो तुम॥

तेरी पूजा में तो ना कोई विधि है। तू जगदम्बें दाती तू सर्व सिद्धि है॥

रविवार को तेरा सुमिरन करे जो। तेरी मूर्ति को ही मन में धरे जो॥

तू सब काज उसके करती है पूरे। कभी काम उसके रहे ना अधूरे॥

तुम्हारी दया और तुम्हारी यह माया। रखे जिसके सिर पर मैया अपनी छाया॥

सर्व सिद्धि दाती वह है भाग्यशाली। जो है तेरे दर का ही अम्बें सवाली॥

हिमाचल है पर्वत जहां वास तेरा। महा नंदा मंदिर में है वास तेरा॥

मुझे आसरा है तुम्हारा ही माता। भक्ति है सवाली तू जिसकी दाता॥
