Navratri Festival Special 2013 - Did you know? - Part 4

Goddess Olwen

Mata Kushmanda and Welsh Goddess Olwen

Maa Kushmanda, is worshiped on fourth day during Durga Pooja during the Navratris. She is said to be the power that gives the Sun its power to nourish. Her abode is at the centre of the Sun. Kushmanda is the one who begins the cycle of creation by creating the anda or egg-shaped universe which grows and expands till pralaya.

The Welsh Goddess Olwen, who is the patron of the arts, creativity, excellence and the sun. Her symbols are late-blooming flowers, red and gold items and rings.  She is also called ‘the Golden Wheel, which signifies the wheel of creation and dissolution’, or the beginning of the cycle of the world. She is thus close to the depictions of Kushmanda.
