Mahagauri Mata - Navratri Eighth Day

Mahagauri Puja

Mahagauri Mata is worshipped on the eighth day of Navratri. Maa Mahagauri is known for fulfilling all the wishes of her devotees. Her name means: “Maha’ - great/immense & ‘Gauri’ - white. As she is quite fair in complexion, she got this name ‘Mahagauri’.

About Mahagauri

Goddess Mahagauri has four arms and rides on a bull. One right arm stays in Abhaya Mudra, whereas second one carries the Trishul (trident); and one left arm holds the Damru (a small hand drum), the other one stays in Varada Mudra.

Legend

The tough penance of Maa Parvati to get Lord Shiva as her husband hampered her skin. Due to all the calamities of nature, her complexion got black. When Shiva accepted her, he cleaned all the dust and other impurities from her body in the river Ganga. Hence, her real complexion came out, which was extremely white. Therefore, she got this name ‘Maha Gauri’.

Astrological Aspect

Planet Rahu is ruled by the Mahagauri Maa. Worshipping her helps in pacifying the ill effects of this planet.
