About Goddess Chandraghanta

Devnagari Name: Chandraghanta

Origin

After getting married to Lord Shiva, Goddess Parvati became known as Chandraghanta for donning the half moon.

Nomenclature

The word Chandraghanta is made of two Sanskrit words ‘Chandra’ and ‘Ghanta’. Here Chandra means ‘the moon’ and Ghanta means ‘bell’.

Here the word Chandra comes from the fact that when Parvati married to Shiva, she donned an adornment on her forehead which was half-chandra (literally half moon) that appeared like a bell. From then Goddess Mahagauri became famous among her devotees as Devi Chandraghanta for her new form.

Depiction of Chandraghanta

Chandraghanta goddess is depicted with the sacred mark of half-Chandra on her forehead. She is portrayed with a tigress as her vahan or vehicle on which she mounts. She possesses ten hands.

Her four left hands carry trishul (trident), gada, talvar (sword), and a Kamandal. The fifth hand rests in Varada Mudra that is a pose of giving blessings to the worshippers.

In other four right hands, Devi Chandraghanta carries teer (arrow), dhanush (bow), Kamal-phool (Lotus flower), and a Japa Mala (garland). Her fifth hand poses in Abhaya Mudra that is a form of giving blessing of becoming fearless.

Favorite Flower

Devi Chandraghanta’s favorite flower is Jasmine. It is known as “Chameli” in Hindi.
