Magha Gupt Navratri Ghatasthapana is an extremely essential religious ritual that is done during Magha Gupt Navratri. It has long been traditional to conduct this ritual both during Magha and Sharad Navratri. However, it is considered that Ghatasthapana or Kalash Sthapana should always be performed at an auspicious time. In such a case, Ghatasthapana Muhurta is popular due to the Sharad Navratri festival, which is celebrated with zeal across the nation, but Magha Gupt Navratri Ghatasthapana is also performed in an auspicious Muhurta.
Ghatasthapana is regarded as a symbol of the commencement of Navratri, the Shakti Sadhana festival. Devotees fast and worship Goddess Durga for nine days starting today. On the first day of Navratri, Pratipada Tithi, it is conventional to conduct Ghatasthapana or Kalash Sthapana, and Maa Durga is invoked.
According to religious scriptures, for doing Magha Gupt Navratri Ghatasthapana the most suitable time is the first one third of the day of the Pratipada Tithi. However, if you are unable to perform Ghatasthapana during this time, it is preferable to perform Ghatasthapana during Abhijeet Muhurta. Ghatasthapana should be avoided if Chitra Nakshatra or Vaidhriti Yoga is formed at the moment. Although there is no prohibition in religious scriptures against creating Kalash during this period, it is still best to avoid Ghatasthapana. It is essential to know that Ghatasthapana is never performed in Solah Ghati at night, in the afternoon, or after dawn.
Let us inform you that ascending is also very important during the auspicious time of Magh Gupt Navratri Ghatasthapana. In such cases, we attempt to include Dvi-Swabhav Lagna when determining the Muhurat for Ghatasthapana. During Sharad Navaratri, at sunrise, the dual nature ascendant is powerful in Virgo, and if the conditions are favorable, Ghatasthapana can be performed.
