Day 5 - Skanda Mata - Yellow

      Embraces us with the vibrant warmth of yellow. Skandamata, the fifth avatar of Goddess Durga, is worshiped on the fifth day of Navratri. She is the mother of Kartikeya, another form of Parvati, and is often depicted holding Kartikeya in one hand while blessing devotees with the other. She rides a lion and sits on a lotus. Kartikeya defeated the fearsome demon Tarakasura. Worshiping Skandamata brings blessings of peace, prosperity, and salvation
