The name Chandraghanta is the compound of two words, ‘Chandra’ meaning moon...
comes from the word “Chandra “means crescent moon worn by her on the head “ghanta” in the shape of a bell. She is the one who establishes justice and wears crescent moon on her head.

She is depicted as the goddess riding on a lion and radiating golden hue; she gives a gorgeous look. She has ten hands and three eyes. In her five hands, she holds armaments like the bow, arrow, discus (Sudarshan-Chakra), sword, and mace (Gada) It is a huge mace which is the main weapon of Hanuman. It is a blunt mace, made up of either wood or metal. The weapon is also used during exercise by wrestlers in India. Other three hands carry rosary (pooja maala), Lotus, and kamandal (pitcher), and the remaining two hands shows gesture blessing her devotees. She always appears in readiness for fighting with the demons (negative forces). Her roaring voice is like a tumultuous sound of a bell that always causes the atrocious villains, demons and devil to tremble.

One unique feature of her appearance is that that she always ready to go to war; still her face has got the serene effect, like a cool breeze in a moonlit night.

She is always in a ready to bless her believers to experience the instant fulfilment of their desire. When devotees invoke her, the sound of her bell will protect them from evil spirits and her lion will make them brave and fearless like her.

By the grace of Goddess Chandraghanta, all the sins of the devotees get nullified.  They became brave and fearless accompanied by serenity and humility.  Their face, eyes and the entire body get effulgent, and their voice becomes divinely sweet. They always emanate an invisible radiation of divinely lighted atoms. The divine action is beyond the perceiving capacity of physical eyes, but the devotee himself, and his associates experience this fact now and then. They can get rid of all worldly desires and attain the goal to get united with the supreme soul.
