The belief in the presence of a divine power is what keeps us going forward in the face of all adversities. The situations that we meet, the ways we follow in our lives might sometimes go opposite to our expectations.In these situations, we need to reaffirm our beliefs into that superior presence through certain rituals to clear the doubts that circle our heads and see the greater good that lies ahead for us.
Nava Chandika Homam is one such ritual that helps one gain the control and balance of one's life by the blessings of Goddess Chandika- the fiercest manifestation of Goddess Durga. This Homam is performed by devotees seeking a solution to the unending problems of life. Chandika Homam is carried out with full fervor and virtue.
The ten arms of Goddess Durga symbolize that she protects her devotees from all directions-the eight corners and from the sky and the earth. The weapons are Conch, Bow & Arrow, Thunderbolt, Half bloomed Lotus, Sword, Sudarshan Chakra, Trishul, Abhaya Mudra and Mace. The presence of various weapons in her hands teaches us the way of life. From knowledge to wisdom to love and Loyalty, she provides her benevolent assistance in every aspect of life.
Shankha / Conch - The sound emanated from the conch shell is believed to be the most pure and sacred of all the sounds in the universe. ... As Goddess Durga holds both the bow and arrows in Her hands, it shows that She is the one who controls all the sources of energy in the universe.
