Kushmanda 4th Navadurga and the ENTREPRENEUR

Today we worship Maa Kushmanda, 4th Roop of Adi Shakti.
The word Kushmanda is made of three other words that are “Ku + Ushma + Amnda= Kushmanda”. Here “Ku” is “Little”, “Ushma” is “Warmth or Energy” & “Anda” is “Egg” , means the one who create the universe as “Little Cosmic Egg” with the energy of Her divine smile is called “Kushmanda”. 
She is the one who created the entire universe and filled it
 with sunlight and vibrancy with her Solar cosmic smile. Before her was all still and dark.
We remember today the "CREATOR" aspect of Maa. This day is dedicated to all the women who have dared to break the norms and create their own little bright world, whether as HOMEMAKER or an an ENTREPRENEUR.
The core of Suraymandala (Sun) is the residence of Devi Maa. She is the only one who has the power & strength to live in the core of Suryaloka (Sun). Her body shines like the glowing Sun. All directions get light from Her Divine smile including the Sun God itself.
She has 8 arms with 6 weapons in them. She PERSONIFIES THE FEMALE POWER who can both be ruthless and kind, be nurturing as well as fierce to achieve her goals.
