The second day of Sharadiya Navratri is dedicated to Maa Brahmachari

Significance: She is the Devi Yogini and Devi Tapasvini before marriage and an embodiment of the female energy.

Colour: Imbibe the colour Green on this day to celebrate the sense of tranquillity, prosperity, fertility, and growth.

Mantra:

या देवी सर्वभूतेषु सृष्टि रूपेण संस्थिता

नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै  नमस्तस्यै नमो नमः

करपद्माभ्यामक्षालाकमण्डलु देवी

प्रसीदातु मई ब्रह्मचारिण्यनुत्तमा  

Translation: May the supreme Brahmachari Durga, who holds the rosary and kamandalu in her lotus hands and whose nature is to attain Sachchidanandamaya Brahmaswarupa – the Existence-Knowledge-Bliss absolute, be propitious on me.
