Maa Chandraghanta Vrat Story

Maa Durga took the form of Maa Chandraghanta to eliminate the terror of the demons. A demon named Mahishasura had usurped the throne of Devraj Indra. He wanted to rule heaven. Knowing this desire of his, the deities became very worried. The gods sought the help of Tridev i.e. Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh for this trouble. Hearing this, Tridev became furious. Due to this anger, a goddess was born out of the energy generated from the mouths of all three. Lord Shankar gave him his trident and Lord Vishnu his chakra. Then in the same way all the other deities also handed over their weapons to the mother. At the same time, Indra gave his mother an hour. After this Mother Chandraghanta came to kill Mahishasura. Seeing this form of the mother, Mahishasura realized that its time is near. Mahishasura attacked Mata Rani. Then Mother Chandraghanta killed Mahishasura. Thus the mother protected the gods.
