Day 1 - Shailputri Mata

Shaiputri maa is worshiped just after the Ghatasthapana process.

Shailaputri is a Sanskrit name which means the daughter of the mountain Shaila means Mountain, Putri means Daughter

Maa Durga had taken birth in the home of the Parvat Raj Himalaya (Raja
of the Himalayas) Hence, this incarnation of hers got the name Shailputri.

The name of the King of the Himalayas was Hemavana. Hence, she also got the name Hemavati.
In her previous birth, she was the wife of Shivji & putri of Raja Daksha. So, she also has names like sati. Once,Raja Daksha organized a big Yajna event. He didn’t invite Shivji. But, Sati couldn’t resist it and she arrived there. During the Yajna, Daksha insulted Shivji. She
could not take it and jumped into the fire of Yajna. Later, she took birth in the home of Mountain deity as Parvati & married Shivji again.
Shailputri  Mata governs the planet Moon in astrology. Worshiping her can eliminate all the bad effects of Moon.


ॐ देवी शैलपुत्र्यै नमः॥

वन्दे वाञ्छितलाभाय चन्द्रार्धकृतशेखराम्।
वृषारुढां शूलधरां शैलपुत्रीं यशस्विनीम्॥
स्तुति : 

या देवी सर्वभू‍तेषु माँ शैलपुत्री रूपेण संस्थिता। नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमो नम:॥

अंग्रेजी का रिलीजन शब्द सनातन धर्म से थोड़ा भिन्न है रिलीजन से विश्वास का भाव सूचित होता है और विश्वास परिवर्तित हो सकता है l किसी को एक विशेष विधि में विश्वास हो सकता है और वह इस विश्वास को बदल कर दूसरा ग्रहण कर सकता है लेकिन सनातन धर्म उस कर्म का सूचक है जो बदला नहीं जा सकता l
उदाहरणार्थ ना तो जल से उसकी तरलता विलग की जा सकती है ना अग्नि से ऊष्मा विलक की जा सकती है ठीक इसी प्रकार जीप से उसके नित्यकर्म को विलग नहीं किया जा सकता, सनातन धर्म जीव का शाश्वत अंग है एवं जब हम सनातन धर्म के विषय में बात करते हैं तो हमें श्रीपाद रामानुजाचार्य के प्रमाण को मानना
चाहिए कि उसका ना तो आती है ना अंत जिसका आदि और अंत ना हो वह सांप्रदायिक नहीं हो सकता क्योंकि उसे किसी सीमा से नहीं बांधा जा सकता जिसका संबंध किसी संप्रदाय से होता है, सनातन धर्म को भी सांप्रदायिक मानने की भूल करेंगे किंतु यदि हम इस विषय पर गंभीरता से विचार करें और आधुनिक विज्ञान

The four arms represent sides to human personality in learning: mind, intellect, alertness, and ego, by one interpretation.

knowledge is represented by the book in one hand;

▪Rani Durgavati was a Chandel Rajput. She was born at the Kalinjar fort, Banda, Uttar Pradesh. Chandel Rajputs were the builders of the beautiful city of Khajurao,which had 85 magnificent temples, of which 22 still survive.

She inherited the Gond Kingdom after her husband,
Dalpat Shah died in 1550 A.D. As Vir Narayan, her son was too young at that time, Durgavati took the reins of the Gond kingdom in her hands.. Baj Bhadur after ascending the throne of Malwa in 1556 A.D., attacked the Gond kingdom but his army was routed. His defeat was so decisive
that he never dared attack Rani Durgavati’s kingdom ever again.

Thereafter, in 1564 A.D., the Mughal Emperor, Akbar decided to invade Rani’s kingdom and sent a cavalry of 50,000 with heavy artillery, under the command of Abdul Mazid Khan.
