Katyaayni is the sixth form of Goddess Durga. Sage Katyaayan was the son of the great sage Kat. Katyayan had observed rigorous penance and worship of "Bhagavati Paramba with a desire to get paramba daughter. The wish was granted and she took birth as a daughter of Katyaayan and therefore named as "Katyaayni". She has four hands. The top right hand is positioned in a gesture of providing courage and the other hand is positioned in a gesture of rendering a boon. The top left hand is holding a sword and the other holding a lotus. The Goddess is mounted on a lion and she is worshiped on the sixth day of the Durga puja. If one worships the deity with a pure soul he attains success in religion, wealth, passion and salvation. Disease, sorrow and fear are eliminated.
