CHAITRA NAVRATRI 2020 – MAA MAHAGAURI PUJA ON ASHTAMI
Mahagauri is the eighth manifestation of Maa Durga and is worshipped on the eighth day of Navaratri. According to Hindu Religious Books Maa Mahagauri has the power to fulfill all the desires of her devotees. The one who worships the goddess gets relief from all the sufferings in life.
Mata Mahagauri has four arms. Her right arm is in the pose of allaying fear and right lower hand holds a trident in it. She holds a tambourine in her left upper arm and the lower one is in the form of a blessing.
All the ornaments and textiles of Mahagauri are of white color, hence they are also called as Shwerthambordhara.
Mahagauri is worshiped on the eighth day of Navratri and coconut is offered to the mother.
There is a law to donate coconut on this day. It is accepted that applying coconut to the mother fulfills the wishes of the childless.
