The Astrologer of Kashi knows from Chakrapani Bhatt that 5 things should be done during Shardiya Navratri so that Mother Durga is pleased and the fast and worship are also successful.


It is important to do these 5 things during Shardiya Navratri
1. Durga invocation

According to religious beliefs, Mother Durga comes to earth from Kailash with her family in her vehicle on the first day of Navratri. If you observe fast during Navratri, then you should invoke Goddess Durga before worshiping and welcoming her. Invocation means that you are calling Matarani to your place for some special accomplishment or purpose. Inviting them to come. It is said that one should not go to anyone's house without invitation.

2. Kalash installation
If you keep a fast for 9 days or keep fast on first and Ashtami then you should establish Kalash. According to Devi Purana, it is necessary to establish Kalash before worshiping Goddess Bhagwati. At the time of puja, the Kalash is installed as a symbol of the goddess's power and the place of pilgrimage. Kalash is considered a symbol of wealth, happiness, prosperity, etc. Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, and divine maternal powers reside in the Kalash.

3. Kanya Puja
Navratri is considered incomplete without Kanya Puja. Kanya Puja is performed on the day of Durga Ashtami and Mahanavami. Girls are considered to be the form of Mother Durga. Because of this, 1 to 9 girls can be worshiped during Navratri. In this, you can include girls between 2 years to 10 years. By worshiping Kanya one attains all kinds of happiness, glory and prosperity.

4. Navratri Havan
Havan also has importance in Navratri. Without this the puja will not be complete. The materials you offer at the time of Havan are received by the Navagraha, Gods, and Goddesses. Being pleased with it, helps in achieving your objective. Performing Havan provides mental peace and positive energy.


5. Respect for women
Mother Durga and Kanya are worshiped during Navratri. Maa Durga herself is Adishakti, she is nature, and it is from her that this entire universe is created. He is the life and air. Only through Him, Shiva becomes complete, only then the concept of Shiva-Shakti comes true. He is called Ardhanarishwar. Navratri is a festival of respect for women. If you do not respect your mother, sister, wife, daughter or other women then Navratri fast and Durga Puja will not be fruitful for you.
