New Delhi: The auspicious occasion of Navratri began on October 10 this year and will be on till 18th, with Vijayadashami being celebrated on the 19th of this month. The entire country is immersed in the festive spirit of this 9-day long festival. Navratri or Durga Puja marks the victory of good over evil.

During these 9 days of Navratri, a particular form of Goddess Durga is worshipped by the devotees. On the sixth day of Navratri, Goddess Katyayani is prayed to. Katyayani happens to be the second name for Goddess Parvati in Amarakosha—the Sanskrit lexicon.

Devi Katyayani is associated with the red colour, similar to Maa Durga. According to Skanda Purana, Devi Katyayani is referred to as being created from the spontaneous anger of the Gods which ultimately killed the demon – Mahishasura.
