The Legend Of Mata Chandraghanta

If we go by the texts of Shiva Maha Purana, Mata Chandraghanta is none other than the divine manifestation of Mata Shakti of Shiva himself. In other words, the other side of Shiva’s personality accompanies Mata Shakti. The tiger or a lion, which is a symbolic gesture of bravery, is used by Devi Chandraghanta as her carrier. The important thing to note here is that the tiger is also a carrier of earlier forms of Mata Durga, which also symbolizes that goddess Chandraghanta resorts to belligerence when provoked. This form of Devi is known as Chandi or Chamunda in which the ferocity of the deity knows no bounds but it is assumed to destroy the evil force. On the other hand, the deity maintains a serene individuality.
