Every year we know two popular Navaratris in in the Hindi month of Chaitra(Around March) and Ashwin (Around October), Apart from these two there are 2 more Navatrais which fall in the month of Ashadh (usually June-July) & Magha(usually fall in Jan-Feb) months of Indian lunar calendar. These are called Gupt Navaratris.
Nine Goddesses of Navratri- Navratri Devis
The Divine Paramba Shakti is worshiped in All Navaratra , however in common Navatrais( Chaitra & Ashwin) people worship the nine form of Goddess Durga
- Kushmanda- कूष्मांडा
While in Gupt Navaratris Tantriks worship ten Mahavidya forms of Goddess AdiShakti.There are
- Sodashi Tripur Sundari-षोड़शी त्रिपुर सुंदरी,
- Matangi – मातंगी ,
Each of these Mahvidyas have a specific method and a mantra to do their Sadhana. Usually their ‘sadhans’ extends into several days to attain their siddhi. However in Navaratris this can be accomplished in the nine days itself as the spiritual merit of these mantras chanted and sadhana increases by hundredfold thus enabling faster progress towards ‘siddhis’ of these Mahavidyas.
All navaratras are very powerful periods of worship and performing sadhanas. Apart from the deities mentioned above.
Usually the sadhanas performed in Gupt Navratris are done are Vammargi(Left Path) .Which assure fatser accomplishments of Sadhanas. But this depends on the Goddess worshiped as well. As Kamala, Tripur Sundari, Kamal, Matangi are soft sadhans (सौम्य साधना) while Kali Tara, Bagalamukhi, Ghoomavati, Bhairavi, Chhinnamasta are fierce sadhanas( उग्र साधना).
