Goddess Durga, According to Vedic beliefs, all beings in this world are part of the same Paramatma or Brahman. However, the initiates from the Sanatan tradition have been worshiping various deities according to their needs or preferences. For example, those who want to acquire wealth belong to Lakshmi, those who seek to acquire knowledge belong to Saraswati, those who seek to do martial arts or adventure work belong to Kali, those who manage the state belong to Narayan, those who seek to attain Ganesha belong to Siddhi, Vitaragi belongs to Shiva
In addition to the spirit, nature also has a great role to play in the creation and operation of creation. Nature itself is called power. Shakti has three main characters, Mahakali, Mahalakshmi and Mahasaraswati. The word Shakti refers to Durga and is the aggregate form of Durga, Mahakali, Mahalakshmi and Mahasaraswati. So there are innumerable forms of nature or power or Durga. One form of Durga is worshiped every day for nine days during Navratri.
Goddess Durga is such a power, by worshiping her, one can attain harmony in power, wealth, knowledge, intellect, art and literature. By worshiping the same deity, all the necessary aspects of life can be achieved in a balanced way.
However, the working method of any deity is different from what we think. They do not take bribes. They seek or protect the seeker only by taking care of the overall behavior rather than the appearance, thought, and formality. Let me do this, God, it is absurd to try to bargain whether I will worship you or offer such a thing. Devotees who have devotion or devotion to Ishtadev have no shortage and should not ask for anything.
Goddess Durga is the mother of all creatures but she is always ready to solve the problems of those who call her or treat her like a mother. There is no doubt that those who are practicing it are making relative material and spiritual progress.
Man’s life is greatly influenced by his destiny, the thoughts and feelings that arise in his mind and the environment around him. Sadhana or worship helps to gradually adapt to that environment. Going to the temple once, or offering incense, or offering sacrifices are secondary to a long life span. Frequent worship alone can leave some positive imprints on a person’s life, just as many people seem to be walking on the ground.
The fruits of a balanced time and effort in sadhana are lasting, but it is useless for a person whose thinking is deceitful, whose diet is unbalanced, and whose behavior is antisocial or selfish.
It is said that Navratra is an opportunity to give a positive turn to life. It is not limited to meeting, eating, gambling and having fun. Can go Navratri is an invaluable opportunity to awaken the self-esteem and confidence of those who have lost their enthusiasm and frustration in life.
There are some methods of worshiping Goddess in Navratri. Methodically established daily worship, philosophy of Shakti Peethas, recitation of Goddess Durga Saptashati, Siddha Kunjikastotra recitation, chanting, hymns, worship of virgins, silence etc. are some examples of this. Durga Bhagwati’s sadhana (Sattva, Raj and Tama) is worshiped in all three aspects, i.e., it combines the three aspects of knowledge, karma and bhakti. There may be, but the sadhana of Durga Bhagwati is simple and safe, and only what is possible and known can be done without complicating it.
Just as the body and mind get tired from the day’s work and feel the need to rest in the evening, so by taking some time off from regular work and doing sadhana, we can get a new energy. It is better to take Navratri as a festival to accumulate (recharge) energy through sadhana, not to expend energy.
Chanting of Goddess Durga can be done from the rosary and also mentally. For chanting, the mantra ‘Om aaye hrin klin chamundaai vichche’ is added to the nine syllables. It is called a mantra because it can be done with concentration and totality in the mind. Ain (Mahasaraswati’s Seed Mantra) while Hrin and Klin are the Seed Mantras of Mahalakshmi and Mahakali respectively. People of any caste, creed and faith can benefit by worshiping Bhagwati.
Today, the issue of women’s empowerment is rising with more vigor. Of course, the treatment and treatment of women as second-class citizens and the use of various forms of violence are reprehensible. This sadhana performed on Navratri gives strength to women. How can the women of this world be second class when the male and female deities are equally revered and worshiped?
