Significance of Sidhidatri Puja

As Goddess Sidhidatri is that form of Durga who existed from the beginning and owned the supreme power, she possesses all kinds of Siddhis. So people worship her to get the blessings of a special type of Siddhi from her.

Sidhi generally is not considered as the normal blessing for some material or stuff. People who worship hard for gaining some siddhi, seek some special type of ability or supernatural power at the spiritual level.

What humans and what Deva (Angelic saints, living in heaven)! It is believed that she is worshipped in heavenly places too. Other than them, Sidha, Gandharva, Asura, and Yaksha also pray to her for specific Siddhi(s).

Goddess Siddhidatri is believed to govern the planet Ketu. She supplies energy and direction to Ketu for functioning.

Ayudha Puja

For Saraswati or Ayudha Puja: Warriors show gratitude towards the Devi, decorate their weapons and worship them. The musicians play their musical instruments to offer prayers to Goddess Saraswati.

Traders such as farmers, pottery makers, carpenters, smiths, and shopkeepers decorate and worship their tools, equipments, and machinery. It is done with both the stuff they use and the stuff they keep in their shop to trade.

Students thank their teachers, show respect, express belongingness, and take their blessings. This is a popular tradition in South India.

About Goddess Siddhidatri

Devnagari Name: Siddhidatri

Origin

As per ancient Hindu religious texts, Adi-Parashakti had emerged from the left half of Shiva in the form of Siddhidatri.

Because of this fact that Goddess Parvati had appeared from the half left of Shiva, he is addressed as Ardha-Narishwar.

Lord Rudra had worshipped the Adi Parashakti at the beginning of this universe as she was the supreme power during that time.

Nomenclature

The word Sidhidatri is made of two Sanskrit words ‘Sidhi’ and ‘Datri’. Here Sidhi means ‘the blessing’ and Datri means ‘giver, the one who gives’. Thus the literal meaning of Sidhidatri is the Sidhi-giver or the one who gives a blessing.

Goddess Sidhidatri is also known as Devi Saraswati who is believed to be the goddess of knowledge who possesses all types of Siddhis. People worship her for enhancing their knowledge.

Depiction of Sidhidatri

Sidhidatri goddess is depicted sitting on the lotus (Kamal ka Phool) and with four hands. Her Vahan or mount is the lion which she rides with regal posture.

Goddess Siddhidatri, a form of Durga’s portrayal with four hands looks majestic. She holds the flower of Lotus and a Shankh in her two left hands. Her other two right hands carry a Gada and a Chakra in each.

Favorite Flower

Goddess Siddhidatri’s most liked flower is Night Blooming Jasmine that owns a very sweet fragrance and is called Raat Ki Rani in Hindi.

Navratri Parana (For who do Kanya Puja on Maha Navami)

Sharada Navratri culminates in the celebration of Durga Puja, followed by Dushehra.

Maha Navami: Rama Navami

Chaitra Navratri culminates in the celebration of Rama Navami, the birthday of Lord Rama which falls on the ninth day of Chaitra month as per Hindu calendar ‘Panchang’. Among Vaishnava temples, Rama Navami is preceded by the Ramayana recital programs for the next nine days as Ramayana is one of the most significant Hindu texts of religious value which revolves around Lord Rama who is believed to be the avatar of Hindu God Vishnu.
