Ashadha Gupt Navratri 2022 Day 3: Maa Chandraghanta Puja Date, Mantra and Rituals, And Significance

As per scriptures, the four Navratris correspond to four different yugas, the Krita, Treta, Dwapara and Kali. Chaitra Navratri was the predominating festival of Krita Yuga, and Treta yuga preferred Ashadha Gupt Navratri. Similarly, Dwapara yuga held Magha Navratri as important.

Kali Yuga celebrates Sharad Navratri in full fervour and devotion as it happens to be the most prominent Navratri of all. Parvati is the original goddess Durga with nine avatars, out of which each avatar is demarcated for worship on the days of Navratri.

Chandraghanta Puja 2022: Significance

Goddess Chandraghanta is peaceful but pre-equipped for battle at the same time. All her weapons are meant to destroy the opponents of her devotees and to establish dharma. It is believed that the sonorous sound from the bell on her forehead strikes terror in the heart of any evil spirit and evicts this negative energy in case her devotees are possessed by them. She particularly likes the Jasmine flower.

While Maa Brahmacharini manifests in the ascetic form of her premarriage days, Maa Chandraghanta is the married form of Goddess Parvati. Mahagouri began to apply a crescent-shaped tilak on her forehead, soon after her marriage with Lord Shiva because of which she came to be known as Chandraghanta. Goddess Chandraghanta is the ruling deity for the planet Shukra. If Goddess Chandraghanta is placated with worship and prayers, planetary afflictions related to Venus will be eliminated from your horoscope.
