Today is the sixth day of Navratri. On this day, devotees worship Goddess Katyayini and prefer to wear red color as it signifies beauty and fearlessness. Katyayini Maa is known as the fierce and warrior form of Goddess Parvati. Katyayini Devi sits on a ferocious lion and has 3 eyes, and 4 hands. She carries a lotus and a sword in her left hand and the right ones are seen in Varada, and Abhaya Mudra.
Devotees need to worship the Kalash and the idol of Goddess Katyayini. Puja is done by chanting mantras and at the same time offer flowers to goddess. While worshipping Katyayini, one should also worship Lord Brahma and Vishnu.
Naivedhyam: Offer honey, jaggery, and roasted Bengal gram as naivedhyam.
