Day 9 Navratri Goddess
Maa Siddhidatri, the ninth and ultimate form of Goddess Durga, is worshipped on the ninth day of Navratri. Mahasiddhi, which translates to “the giver of all siddhis” (supernatural powers), is another name for her.

Navratri Ninth day
Mahanavami is the name given to the ninth day of Navratri. Since it signifies the conclusion of the nine-day fast and the victory of Goddess Durga over the demon Mahishasura, it is the most auspicious day of the Navratri festival.
Devotees offer special pujas and aartis to Maa Siddhidatri on Mahanavami. They also offer her other sattvik foods and til, or sesame seeds, as bhog (food).
