Today is the ninth tithi of Ashwin Mass and the moon is in Uttar shad Nakshatra. Today is the day for worshipping Maa Bhagwati. You can get all siddhi by worshipping her. This aspect of Maa Durga is considered the greatest form and salvation giving Maa.
The ninth Aspect of Maa Durga is believed as Maa Siddhidaatri. Maa Siddhidatri is considered as the giver of all forms of achievements [Siddhi]. The Goddess Siddhidatri is capable of giving all types of occult powers and she is also the possessor of twenty six different wishes to give her worshipers. According to the Brahmavaivart Purana there are 18 types of achievements which are Anima, Mahima, Garima, Ladhima, Prapti, Prakaamya, Ishitva, Vashitva, Sarvakaamaal, Saadhita, Sarvagynatva, Durshravana, Parkaayapraveshan, VakaSiddhi, Kalpavrushatva, Shrishti, Samharkaransaamarthya, Amaratva, Sarvanyayakatva, Bhavana and Siddhi.
According to Devi Purana, Bhagavan Shiva got all the achievements only by the grace of Maa Siddhidaatri. That is why his half body was turned in to the Devi and he was renowned as Ardhanareshwar. Dev, Danav, Gandharva, Kinnar, Yaksh and Manushya worship Maa Siddhidaatri to get achievements or sidhhi. ‘Siddhi’ is a Sanskrit term which means ‘perfection’. Goddess Siddhidatri has four arms. She holds a Chakra in her right lower hand and a mace in the upper hand. In the left lower hand there is a conch and in her upper left hand a lotus flower. She is seen as seated on a lotus flower with the lion as her mount.
Maa Durga removes ignorance and she provides the knowledge of realisation to Brahmins. She is always surrounded by Siddhas, Gandharvas, Yakshas, Demons and Gods who are worshiping her. The Siddhi is the realization that everything is Supreme Being or Brahman. If a “sadhaka” worships her with his full faith he can get all “Siddhis” and nothing remains unattainable from him in the universe. Siddhi means enlistment. She is complete form of Shakti which is power of Shiva. Without Shakti
Shiva will be “Saab” which means powerless
Siddhidatri Maa is the representation of wealth, health, and happiness. Maa Siddhidatri is capable of rendering all forms of success to her devotees. Devi Siddhidatri is also known as Devi Lakshmi and her consort is Lord Vishnu. She is the ultimate form of the Maa among all the Navdurga. After worshipping all other aspects of Devi, Navratri Pooja is culminated by praying to Devi Siddhidatri.
