Vedic Origin - As per the traditional story, once upon a time, there was a sage named Kata. He had a son whose name was Katya. In his family, Katyayana became a sage and gained worldwide popularity. He practiced penance for many years to appease Maa Shakti. At the time of boon, sage Katyayana requested Mother Goddess Durgas to take birth as his daughter. The goddess was very pleased and accepted his request. Later on, when the cruel acts of the demon Mahishasura crossed every limit, the trinity of Gods i.e. Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva became very angry. And hence, they created a goddess by distributing some part of their great power, in order to destroy the demon. As sage Katyayana was the first person to worship this goddess, she was named Maa Katyayani.
