What is Goddess Brahmacharini Puja?
The ‘pious’ or ‘sanyasin’ form of Goddess Durga which is Goddess brahmacharini, is worshipped on the second day of navratri festival. Her severe penance (tapa) defines the loyalty and love for lord Shiva. ‘Brahma’ refers to the tapa that Maa Brahmacharini performed for thousands of years without even consuming food for achieving Shiv Ji as her consort (husband). Goddess brahmacharini puja is a sign of gaining strength and wisdom, as she is the bank of knowledge and wisdom. One achieves the stability and passion in life inspiring from her strict tapa and the strength to overcome any kind of hurdles.
Significance of the Puja:
The three worlds were shaken by the severe penance of Goddess Brahmacharini, so the level of her austerity is worth praising. Worshipping her on the second day bestows the devotees with the strength to perform fasts for nine days. The worshipper attains emotional as well as mental balance to face the hard times and an inspiration to cross the darkest hours. She is also worshipped for the desire of a perfect life partner as she did for Lord Shiva. Goddess Brahmacharini also helps to get rid of the negative energies like selfishness, ego, greed and cruelty.
