Day 5 – Panchami
Goddess Skandamata mounts on the ferocious lion. She carries baby Murugan in her lap. Lord Murugan is also known as Kartikeya and brother of Lord Ganesha. Goddess Skandamata is depicted with four hands. She carries lotus flowers in her upper two hands. She holds baby Murugan in one of her right hand and keeps the other right hand in Abhaya Mudra. She sits on lotus flower and because of that Skandamata is also known as Goddess Padmasana.
The colour of purity and peace, you can wear a white colour sari, kurta or lehenga to pay your respect to Maa Skandamata on this day. White goes well with almost any colour, so you can just take your pick!
Pair your elegant white outfit with either pearls and any shade you love.That is no coincidence: white allows to play with accessories like no other.
