Worship of Goddess Brahmacharini on the First Day of Navratri

Along with Shailputri, the first day of Navatrati is also dedicated to Goddess Brahmacharini, the Goddess of Swadhisthana Chakra. Brahma means penance and charini means whose achar (behavior) is that. So she is the one who does penance or tapasya. When Goddess Parvati knew that she wanted to marry Shiva, she followed a path of austerity and performed extreme "tap" or penance. She spent one thousand years, only on fruits and beet-roots. She spent one hundred years by eating leafy vegetables only. During this period of time she suffered the torment of nature like torrential rains, scorching sun and biting cold, under the open sky. After such a difficult routine she lived only on dry Bilva pattaras (leaves) fallen on the ground for three thousand years. She kept her engrossed for twenty-four hours in worshiping Lord Shiva. After that she gave up eating even these dry leaves. For several thousand years she went on without any food and water. After a hard penance of several years, she was finally successful in pleasing Lord Shiva. Shiva represents the soul or self within and Durga is the mind. This union indicates that after several penances and self-control one trains oneself to achieve the self.

She is worshiped on the First day of Navratri 2018 to acquire the power to abstain from food and water and to develop mastery over the mind, body and senses. By the grace of Maa Brahmacharini, you strive to move forward in life without getting disheartened by the numerous challenges coming your way. Goddess Brahmcharini blesses you with great emotional strength and you may be able to keep your mental balance and confidence even in the darkest hour. She inspires you to hold on to your ethics and march on the path of duty. By the grace of Maa Brahmacharini, you strive to move forward in life without getting disheartened by the numerous challenges coming your way. She holds a rosary in her right hand and Kamandalu in her left. SHE personifies love and loyalty. Mata Bhramacharni is store-house of knowledge and wisdom. Rudraksha is HER most adorned ornament.


Brahmacharini Mantra & Puja Vidhi:

Goddess Brahmacharini is the second manifestation of Maa Durga and is worshipped second during Navratri nights. "Brahm" means "Tapa" or penance, hence She is also known as Tapa Charini. Goddess Parvati took birth in the home of Daksha Prajapati and in this form She was a great Sati. It is Her unmarried form that is worshiped as Goddess Brahmacharini. She followed extreme penance to get Shiva as Her husband and followed severe austerity because of which She is called Brahmacharini.

During Her penance She spent a 1000 years on a diet of fruits and flowers and another 100 years on a diet of vegetables. She also slept on the floor during the entire duration. She used to stay in open spaces regardless of the extreme climates. It is said that She was on a diet of Bilva leaves for about 3000 years while praying to Lord Shiva. Soon She gave up food and water but continued Her penance. After She quit eating Bilva leaves She was called Aparna. She immolated Herself after wishing for a father who would respect Her husband Lord Shiva.

She is shown walking on Her bare feet and has two hands, the right hand holds the Japa Mala and the left hand holds a Kamandal.

  • Goddess Durga truly does protect not only me but the entire family

    Dear Kantiji, I made the head mala with 1 Mukhi in the center and placed the nine, 9 mukhi beads in two pairs on each side of the head with the ninth 9 mukhi at the rear of the mala. I, however felt that I wanted to have the 1 Mukhi Rudraksha with me all the time so it became part of a mala containing 1 through 14 Mukhi including a newly acquired 9 mukhi I asked Ms. Neeta for, plus Ganesha Bead and GauriShankar totaling 28 Rudraksha in total. I tried wearing the nine 9 mukhi as a braclet but found that my activities placed them in harm's way. I was afraid that I would inadvertently hit them on close

  • The most happy news for us

    Dear All, Good Day. I first purchased a Akarshaya Siddha Mala from RC. Immediately after that I was given the additional responsibility of photographing all my company�s activity. For short it can be called as I became the official photographer of my company. After that I got my bank loan to clear off all my financial issues. I did that. Along with that I went for an Indra Mala. This time after much delay from my side I got the mala which was reserved to me by Neetaji (which was energized on the 9 days of navratri). I started wearing both malas and my spiritual levels are increasing very muc close

    Dear Mayank   I recd my Shani prasad and pictures today. I have really started to feel the vibes already.   for eg:- I was checking the parcel status online this morning & it was scheduled for delivery only on Saturday. But I was very eager to have it today, as we had a very big meeting in the office where some things were to be decided, and that's why I wanted to have it before the meeting.   I tried to convince very hard the UPS people to send it today itself, but nothing worked with them. But I still kept praying that I get it before I go to the meeting. The miracle was t close
