Story of Maa Skandamata
This is the story of Skandamata Devi, the 5th day of Navratri Goddess: According to a Hindu story, the demon Tarkasur irritated Lord Shiva by controlling Earth. The demon received a gift from Lord Brahma promising that only the son of Lord Shiva would be able to destroy him. Lord Shiva was an ascetic, thus Tarkasur was sure he would never get married. But much to the chagrin of the demons, Lord Shiva wed Goddess Parvati. They soon received a son named Kumar Kartikeya as a gift. Tarkasur was slain by Lord Kartikeya using his extraordinary abilities. Other gods admired Lord Kartikeya's mother, bestowing upon her the name "Skanda Mata." It is akin to worshipping her son, Lord Kartikeya, to adore Skandamata Devi. According to beliefs, the prayer will be addressed to both deities, the mother (Skanda Mata) and her child (Lord Kartikeya).

जय तेरी हो स्कंदमाता।
पांचवां नाम तुम्हारा आता।
सब के मन की जानन हारी।
जग जननी सब की महतारी।
तेरी ज्योत जलाता रहूं मैं।
हर दम तुम्हें ध्याता रहूं मैं।
कई नामों से तुझे पुकारा।
मुझे एक है तेरा सहारा।
कहीं पहाड़ों पर है डेरा।
कई शहरो में तेरा बसेरा।
हर मंदिर में तेरे नजारे।
गुण गाए तेरे भक्त प्यारे।
भक्ति अपनी मुझे दिला दो।
शक्ति मेरी बिगड़ी बना दो।
इंद्र आदि देवता मिल सारे।
करे पुकार तुम्हारे द्वारे।
दुष्ट दैत्य जब चढ़ कर आए।
तुम ही खंडा हाथ उठाएं
दास को सदा बचाने आईं
'चमन' की आस पुराने आई।
