Story behind the name Brahmacharini

Mata Brahmacharini is a living example of a goddess who did severe penance to attain Lord Shiva. When Maa Durga Parvati came to know about her divine love for Mahadev, Narad ji advised her to follow the customs and rituals of rigorous penance of long ages. While doing penance, he had to bear the painful tortures of nature like severe cold, fierce flames of the sun, and thunder of rain.

Moreover, many believe that Maa Durga continued her austere penance for thousands of years and ate only bilva leaves to survive. For many hundreds of years, Mata abstained from water and food and thus devoted herself entirely to the worship of Lord Shiva. This great penance glorified her by the name ‘Brahmacharini’ and Lord Shiva accepted her as his wife.

On the second day of Navratri Puja, Durga devotees worship Goddess Brahmacharini to gain the strength to abstain from food and water for nine days of fasting. At the same time, devotees chant mantras and make stutis (invocations) to seek the immense blessings and grace of the Goddess. Devotees can increase their stamina by worshipping the Goddess wholeheartedly.

It is not just a miracle, but the grace and magnificence of Goddess Brahmacharini, who bestows her devotees with great strength to bear the unpredictability of nature. The second day of Navratri Puja is for Devi Brahmacharini. So worship the almighty on this auspicious day and receive her immense blessings.
