Today in this episode, we are going to tell you some such measures, by which you will get the blessings of Maa Durga and you will get happiness and prosperity in life. So let's know about these remedies...
Establish these forms of mother
To get special blessings of Maa Durga, establish an idol or picture of Bhagwati Durga, Bhagwati Lakshmi and Maa Saraswati at the place of worship in your home. Decorate them with flowers and worship them according to the law.
Fast for nine days
Keep a fast by remembering Maa Durga for nine days with a sincere heart and full devotion. If you do not have the power to keep all the fasts, then do fasting on the first, fourth and eighth day. By doing this, you will get the special grace of Mother Bhagwati. For 9 days of Navratri, make the feet of Goddess Lakshmi coming inwards at the main gate of the house.
Light a candle in the name of mother
Light a candle in your house for nine days in the name of mother. Also, chant the Navarna Mantra Om Ae Hreem Klein Chamundayai Vichai at the time of worship. Light an unbroken flame for nine days of Navratri to ward off evil eyes. If you cannot do this, then put 4 cloves in ghee in front of the goddess in the morning and evening for nine days and light a lamp. According to Vastu Shastra, the Akhand Jyoti should be kept in the direction of the fire direction i.e. south-east angle. According to Vastu Shastra, doing this removes the diseases of family members and wins over enemies.
Must recite Durga Saptashati
During Navratri, Durga Saptashati must be recited. If one has less time, then to take full advantage of Durga Saptashati, one should first recite Kavach, Keelak and Argala Stotra. After this recite the key source. By doing this the fruit of the entire recitation of Durga Saptashati is attained. Unmarried people, after reciting Argala Stotra and Keelakam daily, offer pudding to the Mother Goddess by offering lotus flowers to her for a speedy marriage. In the evening, sitting on a red seat, recite Vishnu Sahasranama and Lalita Sahasranama and offer a lotus flower to the mother daily.
Red colored seat for worship
Always use red colored asanas while worshiping. Keep in mind that the seat should be red and woolen. If you do not have a red colored seat, then take a blanket and put another red cloth on it and worship it while sitting on it. After the worship is completed, bow down to Asam and keep it.
Wearing red clothes during worship
Wear red colored clothes while worshiping. Wearing red color is considered auspicious. Not only this, also apply tilak of Roli. Actually, wearing red clothes gives you special energy.
Offer milk to mother mixed with honey
After waking up in the morning, after taking bath, mix honey in milk and offer it to the mother. Keep it near the place of worship and then by consuming it you will get strength.
Offer offerings of nine types of dry fruits
During Navratri, offer five types of dry fruits in red chunari and offer it to the goddess for the whole nine days and later take this prasad. By doing this the unfulfilled hopes of your mind will be fulfilled.
In Navratri, worshiping 9 girls on Ashtami and Navami Tithi gives special results. These nine girls are considered equal to the nine forms of Maa Durga. While feeding the girls, make them sit in the north or east direction and eat food according to your ability. By doing this all the Vastu defects of the house are removed and there is prosperity in the house.
Keep good things in the safe
Buy any auspicious material of gold or silver like Swastik, Om, Shri, Kalash, lamp, Garuda bell, pot, lotus, Shriyantra, Mukut, Trishul etc. and offer it to the Mother Goddess. On the last day of Navratri, tie that material in a pink cloth and keep it in the vault.
