Nava Durga Skandmata
Painting - Poster Colors On Paper
Skandamata is the fifth aspect of Goddess Durga and hence worshiped on fifth night of Navratri festival. Parvati being the mother of "Skanda" she is called "Skandamata" (mata- mother). She is that aspect of Parvati that created the whole universe.She is the fifth of the Nav-Durgas (Nine Durgas). I have depicted Her according to the description given in following mantra.
सिंहासनगता नित्यं पद्माश्रितंकरद्वया |
शुभदास्तु सदा देवी स्कन्दमाता यशस्विनी ||
May the renowned Durga Devi Skandamata who is eternally seated on a throne and whose hands are adorned with lotuses, be ever propitious to me.
