Significance of Maa Shandmata-fifth form of Goddess Durga as flashed by me on the f.b. on October 12,2910.

Bishwanath Singh :
Today being the 12th of October 2010 happens to be the fifth day of Mavratri.The fifth form of Shakti is known as Skandamata (also known as Padmasana). She is the mother of Kumara or Skanda or Kartikeya, who was chosen by Gods as their commander in the war against the demons. She has three eyes and four arms. Her two ...hands hold lotuses while the other two hand display defending and granting mudras, respectively. Her mount is a lion.The legend goes that demon Tarakasur pleased Brahma with extreme penance and asked for immortality. Brahma refused and asked him to wish for something else. Tarakasur being very clever asked for a boon that only the son of Lord Shiva could take his life. Tarakasur thought Lord Shiva would never discard his vow of celibacy, so there would be no son and he would never die. The boon was granted and Tarakasur started tormenting the world thinking that he was invincible. All the Gods asked Lord Shiva for help. They requested him to get married. Lord Shiva was reluctant but agreed so that the terror spread by the demon could end. After taking human form, he married Parvati and had Kartikeya or Skandkumar who later killed Tarkasur.

Bishwanath Singh :
Let us join all to pay our humble obeisance's to the lotus feet of the holy mother Skandmata-the fifth form of Nav Durga being the mother of Skanda, the leader of the army of gods who is the son of Shiv and Durga as Parvati Hemvati and seek Her bliss for well-being of all living-being of this universe! Skandmata is a deity of fire, with three eyes and four hands. She is depicted as being seated on a lotus, with Skanda seated on her lap.
