Maa Brahmacharini: Navratri

दधना कर पद्याभ्यांक्षमाला कमण्डलम।
देवी प्रसीदमयी ब्रह्मचारिण्यनुत्तमा॥

Second day of Navaratri is dedicated to Goddess Brahmacharini.

‘Brahma’ here refers to the meditative aspect of Brahmacharini and is always depicted as pious women or Sannyasin. Brahmacharini derived from ‘Brahma’, a form of Durga/Shakti that  indicates ‘Tapa’ or ‘penace’. This form Durga is two-armed and carries a rosary and sacred water pot (Kamandalu).

She enlightens us in the magnificent embodiment of Durga with great powers and divine grace.  She is blissful and endows happiness, peace, prosperity and grace upon all devotees who worship her. Filled with bliss and happiness, she is the way to emancipation – Moksha.

Brahmacharini is associated with the pious form of Goddess Shakti. She is believed to be that aspect of Mother Goddess, which was present in Sati and Goddess Parvati, when they both did intense austerities to get Lord Shiva as husband.

Goddess Tara and Goddess Chamunda are also worshipped on this day in western region and some parts of North India. In many regions the first three days of Navratri is dedicated to the worship of Goddess Durga.
