Maa Brahmacharini - 2nd Day of Navratri
On the second day of Navratri, Goddess Brahmacharini is worshipped. Brahmachari's name means the one who practices penance, with Brahma meaning penance and Charini meaning a female follower. She is also known as Tapaswini, Tapasyacharini or Parvati. She holds a rosary in her right hand and a water utensil in her left hand. Her devotees are rewarded with virtue, peace, compassion, happiness, prosperity, and nobility.
For performing puja of Goddess Brahmacharini, you need flowers, roli, akshat, sandalwood and you need to make proper arrangements for her bath. For the bath, you will require milk, curd, sugar, and honey and offer paan and supari to the Goddess and at the end pray to the Navagrahas and your Ishta Devta.
While worshipping, keep a flower in your hand and chant the mantra given below:
Idhana Kadpadmabhyamshmalak Kamandalu
Devi Prasidtu Mayi Brahmacharinyanuttma
Now give a bath to the Goddess with Panchamrit - a mixture of five foods used in Hindu worship and puja, usually honey, sugar, milk, yogurt, and ghee. After giving a bath to the Goddess, offer different kinds of flowers, akshat, and sindoor. The Goddess is believed to be fond of hibiscus and lotus flowers, so offer a garland made out of these flowers to her and then perform aarti.
