Brahmacharini

Creator of Universe


The second aspect of Divine Mother is Brahmacharini Devi. She is worshipped on 2nd day of Navaratri. She is known as Brahmacharini because she created this Brahmand( universe). Devi Brahamacharini's persona is all illuminated and grand. She has Jap Mala (Prayer Roasory) in her right hand and Kamandala in her left. At the start of creation, Brahmaji created noble men. But they were unable to continue with his creation work. Brahma was very surprised and saddened so he went to Sada Shiva for solution. Sada Shiva said without the help of Devi there could be no propagation of life. So all Devatas went to Mother Bhawani and requested her help. She created female form and created womb in females so the nature and universe could expand. The child is said to have nine powers of Devi, 16 Sanskara and 42 Guna (virtues) of Parents out of which 36 are of mother.
