Day 1 of Navratri 2023 includes a vidhi, bhog, and mantra for Maa Shailputri

This year, the much-anticipated celebration of Navratri begins on October 15 with the first day being devoted to the veneration of Goddess Shailputri. The moon is thought to be governed by Goddess Shailputri, the bestower of all fortunes, and adoring her can help counterbalance any negative impacts of the moon, according to She is regarded as an embodiment of Adi Shakti.

According to legend, after self-immolating as Goddess Sati, she was resurrected as Lord Himavat, the daughter of Lord Himalaya. Since “Shail” in Sanskrit refers to a mountain, the name Shailputri, which means “the daughter of the mountain,” is appropriate. She is also referred to as Parvati and Hemavati. She was married to Lord Shiva, just like she had been in her former life as Goddess Sati.
