Navaratri – Day 1

The first day is dedicated to Maa Shailputri.  She takes birth as the daughter of the Great Himalayas.  She is the goddess of nature in which she exhorts mankind to maintain the natural balance and live in harmony. All the energies of world converge into her.

Mantra: Ya Devi Sarvbhuteshu Prakriti Roopen Samsthita; Namastasyai Namo Namah; Vande Vanchhitalabhay chandrardhakritshekharam; Vrisharudham Shooldharam Shailputreem Yashasvineem.

Translation: May the illustrious Shailputri Durga, whom I salute and whose head is adorned by a half-moon, who rides Nandi, a bull and carries a spear fulfill the desires of my heart.
