About Goddess Shakambhari

Goddess Shakambhari (Sanskrit: शाकम्भरी) is an incarnation of Mata Parvati or Adi Parashakti Chandika. Shakambhari means "The One who nourished mankind with fruits and vegetables". There was a time when a famine lasted for hundred years and thus the supreme Paramashakti took avataar as Shatakshi-Shakambhari and gave food to the starving and thus saved the humanity and the world. Goddess Shakambhari has four hands with a bluish skin tone. Mata Shakambhari holds a bow and a lotus in the upper left and right hands respectively and holds fruits and vegetables in the lower right and left hands.

After the completion of Goddess Shakambhari Navratri, devotees celebrate Shakambhari Purnima on the Purnima Tithi of Paush Maas. Maa Shakambhari is regarded as the Goddess of fruits and vegetables or the Goddess of vegetation.
