The First day of Navratri is dedicated to Goddess Shailputri.

The nine holy nights of Navratras have finally arrived. As Navratri is dedicated to nine forms of Goddess Durga, we must also know that each night of Navratras is dedicated to each form of Durga Devi. Here, we will talk about Mata Shailputri.

“ This time, Mata is arriving on a swing. This is not very favorable for the followers; due to this, natural calamities may take place and it may also bring in mutual tension. However, Mata’s departure will take place on elephant, hence, this will bring in pleasant times after Navratri. You should carry on your offerings and rituals even in odd situations. Mata will definitely bless you.”

Shailputri Mata is depicted to ride on a Vrisha (bull). She holds a Trishul (trident) in her right hand, which symbolizes to protect nature from impending dangers and a lotus flower in her left hand. Muladhara Chakra is connected with Shailputri Mata; Muladhara Chakra represents the journey of a person from his/her birth to their spiritual awakening. It is said that until and unless this Chakra is energized, an individual doesn’t have the power to perform a worthwhile task in life. Hence, Goddess Shailputri is worshiped by devotees for such a spiritual awakening.
