Ashtami of Navratri: One who gives fame, fame and prosperity
Monthly Durga Ashtami fast is observed every month on the Ashtami date of Shukla Paksha, but the Ashtami that falls in Navratri is considered to have special significance. It is also known as Maha Ashtami. This date is considered to be the ultimate benefactor and bringer of fame, fame and prosperity. It is believed that by worshiping Maa Durga duly in Navratri, all the troubles are destroyed and the enemies are conquered. Along with this, Kumari Puja is also done on Ashtami Tithi.
Mother gives all accomplishments on Mahanavami
On the last day of Navratri i.e. Mahanavami, mother Siddhidatri, who bestows all accomplishments, will be worshipped. Like Ashtami Tithi, Navami Tithi also has special significance in Navratri. On this day, nine girls representing nine forms of Maa Durga and one child should also be invited and worshiped by inviting the form of Batuk Bhairav to his home. Also, if Goddess Saraswati is established, then her immersion can be done on Navami. Since this is Manvadi Tithi, there is also a law of Shradh on this day. On this date, after taking a bath early in the morning, there is a tradition of donating according to the devotion throughout the day.
