Today is the eighth day of Navratri. It is also known as Maha Ashtami or Durga Ashtami. Today, the eighth avatar of power Mother Mahagauri is worshipped. The Goddess is called Mahagauri due to her fair color. In the days of Sharadiya Navratri, the worship of the girl has special significance. It is said that little girls are the replica of Goddess itself. The day of Ashtami and Navami is considered the best day for worshiping the girls. On this day, people worship Kanya and observe the fast. It is believed that by offering food to these girls, Maa Durga gets pleased and gives blessings of happiness and prosperity to her devotees.
Why is kanya puja on Ashtami and Navami important?
During Navratri, female worship is of great importance. The Navratri fast of devotees is completed only after the nine girls are worshiped as the reflection of the nine goddesses. Maa Durga after getting pleased by the offerings or dakshina showers the devotees with blessings.
Auspicious time of kanya puja
