SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend
Devi Katyayani is the sixth aspect of Divine Mother. She took human form and was born to sage Katyayan, hence she was named as Katyayani. It was the most violent form of Goddess and she also astride a lion with three eyes and four arms. One hand (left) holds a weapon and the other a lotus, the other two hands display defending and granting gestures respectively. She looks deep into everything which her third eye signifies. This golden colored complexion aspect of Goddess is the creative force of nature. There is a legend behind her existence on earth as Gopis who adore Lord Krishna selflessly used to pray to Katyayani Devi to get Shri Krishna as their beloved. She is the prior force behind the mental power that control life and death cycle.
