Siddhidatri Maa – Goddess Siddhidatri Mata

Siddhidatri Maa is worshiped on the ninth day of Navratri and she is ninth among the Navadurgas. Siddhidatri Mata is worshipped for fulfillment of desires.

Swami Turiyananda – Words to Contemplate

One should be consistent in thought and words. It won’t do to let the lips utter something which the mind does not approve. What the mind thinks, the lips too should express, and vice versa. What has once come out of the lips must be carried out at all cost. One who acts thus finds everything getting favorable to him.
Control of the senses is not to be brought about by violent effort. Only by realizing Him it is perfectly achieved. But at first one must struggle for this end. Afterwards it becomes quite natural. Still one should never be over-confident. Just as an intelligent hunter catches a deer and ties it up, so after succeeding in controlling the organs one should be alert, and continue to hold the mind and organs in check.
All trouble is over if the palate and sex impulse are conquered. … When the palate is controlled the sex impulse is also controlled. Unless the senses are brought under control there cannot be any spiritual progress.
