Comments The ninth day of the navratris marks the conclusion of the worship of the nine forms of Goddess Durga. This is the day Mother Siddhidatri is worshipped – she who can confer powers unbeknown to the humankind, the various siddhis! To siddh a power is to attain the power, and the capacity to bestow that power lies with Mother Siddhidatri. She is worshipped by the devas, asuras, gandharvas, kinnar, yakshas, manushyas. Shiva himself, worshipped her and was blessed with supernatural powers. 


According to the sacred texts, there are 8 main different types of siddhis. Goddess Siddhidatri is regarded as the amalgamation of the powers of eight other forms of Durga worshipped on previous days.
