Shardiya Navratri Day 2 (Maa Brahmacharini): Singnificance and Celebration

The second day of the Shardiya Navratri isdedicated to Maa Bhramcharini, who is known as the symbol of wisdom andknowledge. 

Today, October 8 (Friday), is the second day of the Shardiya Navratri and is after Maa Bhramcharini, who is known as the symbol of wisdom and knowledge. Goddess Brahmacharini is depicted holding a japmala and wearing a white saree, according to the visual description. On this day, devotees should bring a jasmine blossom to Maa Brahmacharini's statue, as it is Goddess Brahmacharini's favourite flower.


Maa Brahmacharini is a dedicated female student who wished solely to marry Lord Shiva. She is Goddess Parvati's unmarried avatar. Goddess Parvati's unmarried mediating form is referred to as this. Devi Brahmacharini is a goddess of love and great power. In one hand, she holds a rosary, and in the other, a Kamandal. She is thought to be in charge of the planet Mars. Love, loyalty, intelligence, and knowledge are all symbols of Maa Brahmacharini. The rudraksh mala depicts her sacrifice for Shiva during her jungle existence and the kamandal, or water utensil, represents the fact that she had nothing but water in the latter years of her devotion.


Goddess was reborn as Parvati, King Himavanth's daughter, and she decided to do sacrifice in order to win Lord Shiva's affection. Her tapasya lasted thousands of years, and not even the whims of nature, such as extreme cold, hail, or rain, could break her solid resolve. Tapasyacharini was her given name as a result of this. According to tradition, she survived solely on bilva leaves, and in the final part of her sacrifice, she only drank water. Lord Brahma blesses her after witnessing her sincere dedication, leading her to Lord Shiva and becoming his wife.

Devi Brahmacharini is noted for her true and pure devotion as well as her dedication. The narrative of Brahmacharini demonstrates that followers might achieve their aims by worshiping her.


Lord Shiva and Maa Brahmacharini are both revered. Flowers, rice, and sandalwood are arranged in a kalash and presented to her. Milk, curd, and honey are used to perform Abhishek on the deity. Aarti and mantra chanting are performed for her, and she is given prasada.
