Ghatasthapana Puja Vidhi For Sharad Navratri First Day

The festival of grandiose, Navratri always begins with the ritual of Ghatasthapana. The first day of Sharad Navratri commemorates the invocation of the Goddess Shakti. The Aadishakti blesses her devotees on the very first day as we perform the pujan of ghatasthapana. A specific muhurat is chosen for the Kalash Sthapana by abiding by the rules designed for it.

Ghatasthapana Muhurat Rules

To calculate the Ghatasthapana, one must follow the below mentioned rules:

●  The Kalash Sthapana would happen on the same day, even if there is only one Muhurat that is coming under the Pratipada after sunrise.
●  The Amayukta Pratipada, i.e. the Pratipada that is prevailing on the day of the Amavasya will be considered the first day in case the Pratipada after the sunrise is for less than one minute or is not happening on any day.
●  The Sharad Navaratri must not be celebrated on Amayukta Pratipada in any other case than the one mentioned above.
●  In case the Pratipada goes on for 2 sunrises, the first one would be the only one considered. The second day would not be counted in this case.
●  Amayukta Pratipada must be avoided if you want to commemorate Goddess Chandika on the first day of Sharad Navratri. In the mentioned situation, you can consider the Pratipada of Dwitya.

Muhurat rules for Ghatsthapana on Sharad Navratri

●  The first one - third part of the day is the best time period to start with the Ghatsthapana.
●  Abhijit Muhurat is the best time to start Kalash Sthapana.
●  If the Vaidhritti Yoga is prevailing, the Ghatsthapana must be postponed for a bit during the Sharad Navaratri. However, there is no prohibition on this time frame.
●  Another rule that must be followed is that the Ghatsthapana must be done before mid - day, with accordance to the Hindu daytime.
●  During the pratipada of the Sharad Navratri, the Dwi-Swabhava Lagan Meen prevails in the morning; this is also an auspicious time for pujan.
●  Nakshatras that could be considered for the Ghatsthapana on Sharad Navrarti are Moola, Shrawan, Danistha, Uttarabhadrapada, Ashwani, Rohini, Uttarashadha, Punarvasu, Pushya, Hasta, Revati, and Uttara Phalguni.

Note: After 16 Ghatis from the Sunrise, i.e. after the mid of the Hindu day, the Ghatasthapana mustnt be performed.

Things Required For Kalash Sthapana

The following things must be used while performing the Ghatasthapana:

●  A broad Earthen Pot
●  Red Cloth
●  7 types of grains
●  Mauli
●  Marigold flowers and garland.
●  Gangajal (normal water could also be used for this)
●  Garden soil
●  A kalash
●  Betel Nuts
●  5 leaves from the Ashoka or Mango tree.
●  Coconut with its husk intact
●  Unbroken rice grains

How To Perform Ghatasthapana

●  In a broad earthen pot, sow 7 grains in the garden soil.
●  Add adequate water to it.
●  Fill the Kalash with water, and tie the mauli around it.
●  Wrap the coconut with intact husk in red cloth and tie a mauli around it.
●  Next, place the wrapped coconut on the Kalash, as well as the mango leaves at the mouth of the Kalash.
●  The process of Ghatasthapana invokes the Goddess into it as the prayers begin.

Mantras

●  Vrat Sankalp

Mantra recitation for the people who observe fast for 9 days:

ॐ विष्णुः विष्णुः विष्णुः, अद्य ब्राह्मणो वयसः परार्धे श्रीश्वेतवाराहकल्पे जम्बूद्वीपे भारतवर्षे, अमुकनामसम्वत्सरे
आश्विनशुक्लप्रतिपदे अमुकवासरे प्रारभमाणे नवरात्रपर्वणि एतासु नवतिथिषु
अखिलपापक्षयपूर्वक-श्रुति-स्मृत्युक्त-पुण्यसमवेत-सर्वसुखोपलब्धये संयमादिनियमान् दृढ़ं पालयन् अमुकगोत्रः
अमुकनामाहं भगवत्याः दुर्गायाः प्रसादाय व्रतं विधास्ये।

Above mentioned mantra holds major importance on each day of the Sharad Navratri.

The Mantra contains numerous words which require modification, depending on your name, the name of the day, and the name of your gotra. They are mentioned below-

●  The word that needs modification first is the word “अमुक”. The first word with Amuk is “अमुकनामसम्वत्सरे”. In this you’ll have to alter it as per the name of the Samvastara.
●  Next comes the name of the Gotra. In अमुकगोत्रः, you are supposed to say the name of your Gotra.
●  In case of अमुकनामाहं, you are supposed to say your name.
●  Similarly, in अमुकवासरे, the अमुक will be replaced with the name of the day.
●  In case you observe the fast for 1, 2, or 3 days ,. days, the Mantra will be changed a bit. On the day of the fast, the Mantra will be recited with the name of the Tithi instead of “एतासु नवतिथिषु”.
●  For example, Mantra for observing a fast on the seventh day will be recited as below:

ॐ विष्णुः विष्णुः विष्णुः, अद्य ब्राह्मणो वयसः परार्धे श्रीश्वेतवाराहकल्पे जम्बूद्वीपे भारतवर्षे,
अमुकनामसम्वत्सरे आश्विनशुक्लप्रतिपदे अमुकवासरे प्रारभमाणे नवरात्रपर्वणि सप्तम्यां तिथौ
अखिलपापक्षयपूर्वक-श्रुति-स्मृत्युक्त-पुण्यसमवेत-सर्वसुखोपलब्धये संयमादिनियमान् दृढ़ं पालयन्
अमुकगोत्रः अमुकनामाहं भगवत्याः दुर्गायाः प्रसादाय व्रतं विधास्ये।

●  For the eighth day of Sharad Navratri, “सप्तम्यां” has to be modified into “अष्टम्यां”. Similarly, words need to be changed in accordance to the days that the mantra is being chanted on.

Shodashopchar Puja Sankalp

While performing the Shodashopchar Puja during the Sharad Navaratri, the below mantra must be chanted everyday:

ॐ विष्णुः विष्णुः विष्णुः, अद्य ब्राह्मणो वयसः परार्धे श्रीश्वेतवाराहकल्पे जम्बूद्वीपे भारतवर्षे, अमुकनामसम्वत्सरे
आश्विनशुक्लप्रतिपदे अमुकवासरे नवरात्रपर्वणि अखिलपापक्षयपूर्वकश्रुति-स्मृत्युक्त-पुण्यसमवेत-सर्वसुखोपलब्धये अमुकगोत्रः
अमुकनामाहं भगवत्याः दुर्गायाः षोडशोपचार-पूजनं विधास्ये।
