On the third day of Shukla Paksha of Chaitra month, Goddess Maa Chandraghanta is worshipped. The goddess holds the moon on her forehead for an hour, hence her name is Chandraghanta.

Aarti of Maa Chandraghanta
Jai Maa Chandraghanta Sukh Dham, who completed all my work. Like the moon, you are a giver, you are absorbed in the bright rays of the moon.
The one who calms anger teaches sweet words. The owner of the mind is pleasing to the mind, you are the moon bell.
The one who brings the beautiful spirit, the one who saves in every crisis.
Every Wednesday, whatever you meditate on, with reverence, tell me humility.
Make the idol moon shape, light the flame of ghee in front of it.
Tilt your head and say your mind, have full hope, Jagdata.
Your place in Kanchipuram, your honour in Karnataka. Naam Tera Ratoon Maharani, protects the devotee Bhavani.
