According to traditional Story, the battle of Maa chandi with Mahishasura happened during the nine days of Navaratri and finally ended with Mother’s victory on the 10th Day called as Vijayadasami, the day following Navaratri.

Devotees Should chant this for victory over calamities and mitigation of their negative karma.


Essence of Mahishasura Mardini:

Astrologically Bull symbolises the Mahisasura which signifies over ambition, Aggression, over confidence, Power, Unpredictable nature, Perseverance and male Fertility. it is a symbol of fertility through sacrifice.Bull being a Taurus sign seen for the arrogance (bully nature), direction-less ambitions, fighting nature, hunger for power, pride and excessive sexual desires those are uncontrollable for any being if it is being afflicted by the Nodes and Rajasic Planets.  Symbolically bull is masculine in nature so there is an implication of the bull signifies strength,valor , over aggression and male fertilisation, the more you preserve the fertility more you have strength, valor and courage to fight and more you can balance your mundane desires those are moving aimlessly or direction less in nature. The more you loose Veera (the Male fertility) , more you loose control over you anger, balance and the more you feel weak internally and physically.  Historically it is a symbol of fighting ability and male fertility that gives valor and magnanimity.

In Spiritual Reality, over sexual desires leads to higher passion, Aggression, and loose control of temper for every men, ultimately it  will leads to many weaknesses which generates fear of losing power inside any soul which is symbolically represented by the Mahishasura, is a  Bull (Taurus) that shows to get anything in any cost and The goddess Chandika (Rising Moon in Shuakal Pakasha ) represents the trans-formative and filtering power and with the help of divine mother force any men can conquer  their asuric tendencies as seen in the form Mahishasura in them. In Vedic Trends Chanda or chandals represents those who are mean , having higher passion, anger prone, or cruelty in their nature. Logically they shows animalistic and impurity in soul.

When such qualities are in excessive quantities it is called as called chandalas or those who lives in Tamas Guna means considered as impure, devoid of pure energy required to reach higher chakras.  Mahaishasura as The buffalo represents brutality and vile human nature.Two horns signifies the evil hidden in creation. This is the reason why the battle between Maa Chandika and Mahisha asura is symbolism  of the battle between good and evil.Even it also shows the transformative process human beings can purify their animalistic sexual nature present in mind and body and only divine mother has that capability to turn a animal into human. One, who aspire to purify their minds and bodies should unconditionally surrender  to Divine Mother durga, surrendering unconditionally to her would take up the responsibility of your life and transform you miraculously.Thus, Reciting Mahisasura Mardini and reading about the story of Mahisasura represents the deeper and a higher spiritual lessons for those are  seeking liberation.

Those who are facing trouble in controlling higher desires and passions because of the animalistic nature (tamas) in mind and body and always feel restless, lack of peace and instability in their spiritual practice, they should pray to the Mother Goddess  Durga to transform them into a positive person with the preponderance of sattva Guna. The Divine Mother will help you to control your animalistic passions and become a divine and pious person even She will helps you in destroying your evil karma to move further in the path of higher liberation or mukti from all mundane desires.


Maa Durga and story of Mahishasura



Story of Battle between Maa Durga and Mahisahsura  lying from the Deva and Asura Sangram when Devas were defeated by the Asuras and they were controlling by the Demons. Thousands of years ago, there was a Demon called Mahishasura. He was part demon and part buffalo born from the union of the Asura Rambha and Beautiful female Buffalo Mahisi actually the princess Shyamala cursed to be a buffalo.

Later Mahishasura meditated for thousands of years so he could please Lord Brahma and in return be blessed with immortality and power. After much penance,  Lord Brahma came to him and said, “I am very pleased with your devotion. Ask me any boon that you desire.”

The arrogant Mahishasura said, “Lord, I don’t want any man or God to be able to kill me and only i can be killed  by a women.”

Armed with this boon, Mahishasura considered himself immortal, as no man or God could lay hands on him. He went berserk. In his rage and pride, he practically destroyed the Earth. The lands were soon covered in his darkness and his massacres were widespread. Not only that, he chased away the Gods out of heaven.

Scared, the Gods went running to Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva and narrated their misfortune.They pleaded for protection and said that if something was not done soon, the heavens and the earth and all the beings there, would be destroyed.The lords Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva were hopping mad. They conferred for a moment. And then they held each other and started to radiate a blinding light. A light never seen before. A light so bright, that even the sun paled in comparison. Seeing this, the other Gods also joined in and the light shone even brighter. Out of this beautiful light, was born the ten armed Goddess Durga, the embodiment of Adi Shakti.


Being a woman, there was nothing stopping Goddess Durga from killing Mahishasura, as his boon only protected him from men and Gods. Such was the cunning and smartness of Lord Brahma.

One by one the gods approached her and gifted her a dazzling array of weapons.

The mighty Sudarshan chakra was given to her by Lord Vishnu.

Lord Shiva gave her a dangerous Trishul.

She got a Quiver full of arrows from Lord Varuna, the God of the Sea.

Lord Yama, the God of Death, gave her a powerful Sceptre.

Lord Indra, a Thunderbolt, to rattle the earth.

Lord Vishwakarma, the Architect of the Gods, a menacing axe.

Kaal, or Time, gave her a sharp sword.

She got a kamandal, or pitcher, from Lord Brahma.

Agni gifted a flaming dart.

Airavata, Indra’s white elephant, gave Goddess Durga a bell.

Its noise helped her confuse the demons.

The mighty Himalayas gave Goddess Durga a lion to ride upon.

Armed with ten weapons gifted to her by the gods, one for each arm, she looked ready to show Mahishasura who the boss was and went into battle with him.

Maa Durga battled Mahishasura for ten whole days.

On the tenth day, she managed to chop off his head with her sword.

This shows the essence of why Navaratri festival is to be celebrated for 9 days and then in 10th days victory is to be celebrated after defeating and slaying the demon.

Astrological Importance of Devotion of Maa Durga

In astrological importance Worshipping of  the Maa Durga and Maha Kali has dependent on the phases of Moon ( 4th house - House of aspiration for Bhakti Marg and Moksh) and Moon being Karka of Mother represented by the Divine Mother and Goddess Devi Bhagwati (Durga).  Strength of the moon in Natal chart in between the two phases shows which which Form of the divine mother helping us in conquering our desires, and we should seek divine blessings to kill our Demon in resides in our mind, body and soul.When Moon is stronger in Shukla pakasha  is well placed in chart it shows the blessings of  Mother Durga and when Moon is weak or debilitated in Krishna Paksha it shows the form of Bhadra kali or blessings of Maa Kali to conquer the negative traits those are controlled by mind.

One can worship Goddess Durga/Kali based on the position of the moon in natal, Karkamsa and D20 chart after analysing the paksha bala and influencing of various planets on Moon  :

Below are following information on Form of Divine mother based on Moon signs placements in different signs, as seen in any chart:

1) When Moon is in Aries it  Shows Mother Chamunda (those who kills Chand and Mund, highly aggressive in nature shows nature of Mars with it is with moon).

2) When Moon is in Taurus it shows the motherly figure form of Durga so it should give worshipping of  Maa durga, as rahu Mool trikona sign is taurus.

3) When Moon is in Gemini it also shows Durga when divine Mother helps her devotee to get their budhi in right path as its exaltation sign is Rahu exaltation where one need to seek right devotion rather than moving toward unrighteous path.

4)  When moon is in Cancer it shows Goddess Kali, the natural House of Kali when mother sits in the natural sign of Moksha and bhakti and aspires devotee toward true devotion to sacrifice all the comforts and seek dark deity in motherly form for mukti and bhakti.

5) Moon in Leo shows the form of Kali who is in fierce form ready to burn the Kundalini of devotee in right path for perfect Sadhana.

6) When Moon is in Virgo it shows the  Durga who is intelligent enough to guide the devotee budhi in right dharmic and Karmic path.

7) When Moon is in  Libra it shows the form of Kali who is encouraging the devotee the follow the path of right dharma when it is a matter of Karmic relations.

8) When moon is in Scorpio it shows the form of  Kali as moon start getting weaker in this sign where Dark energies rises too in this sign, so to get protection from those energies worshipping kali is always best suggested in Asthami tithi in Krishna pakasha. Astrologically its Ketu own sign too.

9) When Moon is in Sagittarius it also shows the form of  Kali where devotees are in deep sadhana for awakening their kundalini Shakti for getting higher spiritual and dharmic wisdom. Astrologically Ketu gets exaltated here.

10) When Moon is in Capricorn it shows the form of  Kali where she sits in Shamshaan where devotes aspires for getting the siddh sadhana or blessings in their path. Devotees here are very good in sadhana too. Here goddess kali guides devotees toward right path for moksha.

11) When Moon is in Aquarius it shows the form of Durga the own mooltrikona sign of  Rahu where Mother durga kills the internal Kama,  hidden desires those are hurdles in the path of true wisdom and true spirituality. Here devotees need to surrender their desires in order to get blessings from Maa durga.

12) when Moon is in Pisces it shows the form  Kali, the Mool-trikona sign  of Ketu where divine mother aspires devotees toward moving in the path of Moksha and for understanding true sadhna and diving deep in bhakti and spirituality.

For understanding the true nature of  Divine mother as Natural Ishata from Natal chart one need to check the relation of Moon with other planets in D1, D9 ( trines from Karkamsa) and D20 chart ( Moon and trines/lord from D20 lagana). Most important relation or influence with the 5th house/Lord is most important in understanding which Deity is influencing us in our bhakti marg it could be of Shiva, Gauri or Vishnu but when that planet is influenced by the Moon it changes its form in Devi form (Either Durga/Kali, depending on Pakasha bala of moon). For e.g If  Moon is placed in the 5th house influenced by mars  then it shows the form of  Chamunda. When Moon is influenced  with the Saturn then it shows the form of  Kali. When Moon is with Ketu house in 5th house or it is being influenced by the Ketu or  it is placed in sign of Mars it also shows Kali. When Moon is placed with Rahu either in 5th or trines to lagana it shows the form of  Durga. Even Rahu alone in 5th house shows the form of Durga as Natural deity in chart. The Same principal we can See from trine from Karka amsa too, When Moon, Saturn, Mars or Rahu falls in trine from Karkamasa it also shows the form of devi depending on the which sign they are placed. Usually Watery signs shows the Devi form and Fiery  and Dual Signs shows Vishnu form as Natural Deity but  before approaching to natural deity one must need to thoroughly analyse the D20 chart. Even Placement of Venus with Rahu or Moon also shows form of Maha-maya as in  Maha-laxmi form or can say one of Shakti peeth of Devi. When  Moon is  influenced by Mercury it shows the form of  Tripura Sundari  or form of Lalita Devi.




Even we can further Divides Goddess Durga 9 forms in different planets as worshipped during Navratri.

1) Sun Shows worshiping of  Shailputri
2) Moon Shows gauri
3) Mars shows form of  Skanda Mata
4) Mercury shows form of  Katyayani Mata
5) Jupiter shows form of  Brahmacharini
6) Venus shows form of  Kushmandi
7) Saturn shows fierce form of  Kalaratri
8) Rahu shows  Chandraganta 
9) Ketu shows Siddhidatri

O most valued treasure of Siva, why do You not fulfill my wishes, You who have charming locks of hair, O Daughter of the Mountain, hail unto You, hail unto You.
तव विमलेन्दुकुलं वदनेन्दुमलं सकलं ननु कूलयते


किमु पुरुहूतपुरीन्दु मुखी सुमुखीभिरसौ विमुखीक्रियते ।

मम तु मतं शिवनामधने भवती कृपया किमुत क्रियते

जय जय हे महिषासुरमर्दिनि रम्यकपर्दिनि शैलसुते ॥ २० ॥


20. O Goddess Uma, deign to bestow on me also Your compassion, You who are always inclined to shower compassion on the weak, O Goddess Rama, may You be hailed as the Mother of the universe. You are my mother also. I too am Your son. You may reject my prayer if it is not proper. Deign to remove my sorrow.

अयि मयि दीन दयालुतया कृपयैव त्वया भवितव्यमुमे


अयि जगतो जननी कृपयासि यथासि तथानुमितासिरते ।

यदुचितमत्र भवत्युररीकुरुतादुरुतापमपाकुरुते

जय जय हे महिषासुरमर्दिनि रम्यकपर्दिनि शैलसुते ॥ २१ ॥



21. (Salutations to the Divine Mother) You Must Bestow Your Grace on Me, O Mother Uma, Who is Compassionate to the Miserable. O Mother of the Universe; Just as Your Grace is Showered (on the Devotees), In the Same Manner are Your Arrows Scattered (on the Enemies). Please do Whatever is Appropriate at this time, O Worshipful Mother, to Remove My Sorrows and Afflictions which has become Difficult for me to bear. Victory to You, the Destroyer of the Demon Mahishasura, Who has Beautiful Locks of Hair and Who is the Daughter of the Mountain.
