Mythological tale related to Maa Chandraghanta

According to the ancient texts, the gods and asuras fought a prolonged war in the distant past and had Indra Dev as the gods’ lord and Mahishasura as the Asuras’ lord. Mahishasura won the battle, defeated the gods, and took control of Indra Dev’s throne to rule over heaven. 

The gods became concerned and rushed to Brahma, Vishnu, and Mahesh (collectively known as Tridev) to seek a solution to the problem. They revealed that the demon Mahishasura had captured Indra, Chandra, Surya, Vayu, and other gods and deprived them of their authority before taking control of heaven.

The gods said that because Mahishasura rules over them, they can go nowhere in heaven. Hearing this, Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu, and Lord Shankar became enraged. The three deities’ mouths began to emit energy because of their rage, and this energy combined with the one that emerged from their bodies. 

Following this, it began to expand in each of the ten directions. A celestial deity only then appeared there. Goddess received Trishul from Lord Shankar, while Mother received Chakra from Lord Vishnu. Similarly to that, other gods gave the mother their weapons. The deity received an hour from Indra Dev. Surya Dev also offered the goddess his sword’s sharpness and a lion to mount, and she was named Maa Chandraghanta after that.

The war between the demon and the goddess

Following this, Mata was totally ready for the battle with Mahishasura. Mahishasura, the demon, realized that his time is near after seeing his gigantic appearance. More hordes of demons joined the conflict after Mahishasura commanded his army to attack the mother. 

Nevertheless, Mata Chandraghanta slayed each one of them at once. Along with killing Mahishasura in this battle, Devi obliterated many other demons too.
