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 Orange on this day to initiate tranquillity, brightness, and knowledge.

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.
