Navratri Nine Goddesses

Ten Mahavidyas

While in Gupt Navaratris Tantriks worship ten Mahavidya forms of Goddess AdiShakti.There are

  1. Mahakali-महाकाली,
  2. Tara-तारा,
  3. Bagalamukhi-बगलामुखी,
  4. Bhuvaneshwari-भुवनेश्वरी,
  5. Sodashi Tripur Sundari-षोड़शी त्रिपुर सुंदरी,
  6. Chhinnamasta-छ्हन्नमस्ता,
  7. Matangi – मातंगी ,
  8. Kamala-कमला,
  9. Bhairavi-भैरवी,
  10. Ghoomavati-घूमावती.

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).
