By ForeZorba Vikash Kumar;
There are a number of legends, beliefs and so called history behind this immemorial custom of goddess worship since ancient times. And I am here neither extending superstition, magnification of ritual nor undermine the faith of lacs of people. But I always forward this proposition “first know than believe” (पहले जानो फिर मानो). On request of few corporate people who consult me for their astrological inquiry, urged guidance over performing worship of this remarkable goddess “Shakti”(power) for wealth and well being, which suites their busy schedule and demanding intellectual work keeping their logical outlook intact. Catering their need with my hobby along with my study and research of 18yrs, I am making you to realize the power of mantra with physical serenity to attain worldly and spiritual desires.
This article will first give a very brief description about this Navaratri, Methods of purification and Mantra Mounts for attracting good vibes.
This female embodiment blessing and for gaining power this festival of nine nights is devoted to the power. Four times in a Hindu calendar this festival is celebrated out of these two are prominent and called as Prakat Navratri and rest two are Gupt Navratri. This Navaratra which is taking place from 25th September to 03rd October 2014 comes under Prakat Navaratri. Where worship of nine forms i.e. Durga, Bhadrakali, Jagadamba, Annapurna, Sarvamangala, Bhairavi, Chandika, Lalita, Bhavani and Mookambika of this goddess is done on nine consecutive days. This again differs in name from region to region or faith to faith.
Besides all the mythical story of Ram, Raavan, and Durga, there is a pertinent story which is based on psyche power that the Kshatriyas used to go in a kind of hibernation and drive them out from participating in any vigorous warlike activities all through winter season. So before this hibernation and after finishing their war activity they worship this symbol of shanti and as soon as winter got over they would worship Devi for nine days again and start with their war activities. They express their gratitude upon their win and survival and pray to goddess as you saved this time become my savior at each time. With continuous nine days mantra chanting performed through self and mass auto suggestions; they used to make their mind concrete for any situation come their way.
A compact process of purification and mantra chanting:
Transforming a malodorous atmosphere into essence filled one, you need to clean it and then provide a mechanism to spread a pleasant smell. Similarly purification of body is much required in process of empowerment of self and with bestowing of good fortune.
Therefore, for purification one need to do fasting on all days which is not very possible for our corporate people so one need to be on either fruit diet on all days with or salt-less food or else a combination of both will do.
As we worship different Devi on the nine days so the mantra for that is also different. Shailputri Devi, Bhramcharini Devi, Chandraghanta Devi, Kushmanda Devi, Skandmata Devi, Kaatyayani Devi, Kaalratri Devi, Mahagauri Devi, Siddhiratri Devi. So we request and welcome Devi and worship by reciting the given set of 6 mantras with different reps, in the given chronological order. The pronunciation of mantra should be strictly in order and correctly audible fulfilling the acoustic theory.
Chanting this mantra 108 times or 25 times depending upon your suitability.
या देवी सर्वभुतेषु शान्तिरूपेण संस्थिता I
या देवी सर्वभुतेषु शक्तिरूपेण संस्थिता ।
या देवी सर्वभुतेषु लक्ष्मीरूपेण संस्थिता I
या देवी सर्वभुतेषु बुद्धिरूपेण संस्थिता I
या देवी सर्वभुतेषु मातृरूपेण संस्थिता I
नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमो नमः II
Now on each day of Navaratri we worship with a particular mantra on different days. Mantra for each day is given under according to the form of goddess. You need to recite mantra for day 1 on the first day similarly for other day and variation in this highly discouraged.
Day-1 ॐ ऐं ह्रीं क्लीं चामुण्डायै विच्चे उँ I
Day-2 ॐ ह्रीं दुं दुर्गायै नमः I
Day-3 ओम सर्वा मंगल मंगलये शिवे सर्वरत साधिके I
शरन्ये त्रियंबके गौरी नारायानी नमोस्टुते II
Day-4 उँ दुःख हन्तराय नमः I
Day-5 ओम हरींग महादुर्गया नमः I and ओम नित्याया नमः I chant separately 108 time each
Day-6 ॐ ह्रिंग कत्ययिनी नमः I
Day-7 दुर्गा क्षमा शिवा धात्र स्वाहा स्वधा नमोस्टुते I
Day-8 ॐ नित्या बुद्धाये नमः I
Day-9 काली काली महाकाली कालिके पाप हरिणी, सर्वा विघ्ना हारे देवी नारायानी नमोस्टुते I
This can be chanted 108 times or 25 times but whatever you decide on first day you need to stick with it or rest of the days.
जयन्ती मङ्गला काली भद्रकाली कपालिनी ।
दुर्गा शिवा क्षमा धात्री स्वाहा स्वधा नमोऽस्तु ते II
This all time fruitfull mantra if clubbed with the above mantra leads you always to the desired realm-
ॐ भूर्भुवः स्वः
भर्गो देवस्य धीमहि
धियो यो नः प्रचोदयात् ॥
For attracting wealth and good vibes to the house or place where these have been chanted. This should be recited 108 times for better result but 54 times will also do.
दुरगे स्मृता हरसी भितिमशेष जंतो
स्वस्थैः स्मृितामाति मतीव शुभां ददासी
दरिद्रे दुःख भायहरिणी का त्वदान्ये
Without Lord Shiva nothing can be saved so this mantra should be chanted in conclusion of the Mantra chanting Mounts.
ॐ नमः शिवायI
Concluding with your reasoning conscience the refraining from certain acts, deeds and foods should be always exercised. Nothing is beyond your positive thinking and constructive logic dais. So keep thinking and wait for my next article on this or other segment.
