Maa Brahmacharini

Chaitra Navratri 2022 began on April 02 (Saturday). It is Day 2 of the auspicious nine days and is dedicated to Goddess Brahmacharini. The second avatar of Maa Durga is Maa Brahmacharini who signifies love, loyalty, wisdom, and knowledge. She is said to be the unmarried avatar of Goddess Parvati. It is believed that she governs the planet of Mangal and carries a rosary in one hand and kamandal in the other. Brahmacharini stands for a devoted female student who only desired to marry Lord Shiva. Maa Brahmacharini is symbolic of love and immense strength. 

According to the folklores, she was born in The Himalayas. Devrishi Narada influenced her thoughts and as a result, she practiced tapa or penances with the determination to marry Lord Shiva. The goddess spent hundreds of years doing tapa. The word 'Brahm' in the name Brahmacharini means Tapa. One can please the Goddess with mantra, 'Om Devi Brahmacharinyai Namah॥'.

Then the Goddess is offered paan and supari. For performing her puja, you need flowers, roli, akshat and sandalwood.
