Day 3 - Chandraghanta - Red

      The colour signifies the passionate red, signifying life, health, courage, and love. Chandraghanta, an avatar of Goddess Durga, bears a crescent moon on her forehead. Sati, reborn as Parvati, sought to marry Lord Shiva through intense penance. Lord Shiva agreed but arrived at the wedding in a terrifying form, adorned with ash, matted hair, snakes, and a procession of eerie beings. Parvati transformed into Chandraghanta, a golden-complexioned goddess with ten arms wielding weapons. She prayed for a noble wedding procession and Lord Shiva appeared as a handsome prince. Their marriage on this day is celebrated as Maha Shivratri. Chandraghanta removes sins, distress, mental and physical suffering, and ghostly obstacles. She showers love, peace, and prosperity to devotees. Worshiping her brings success in all aspects of life
