The first form of Nav Durga during Navratri is glorified as Shailputri and worshipping her on the first day of Navratri is said to form the dedication for the next 8 days to follow. It is sad that she brings Moolchakra and Muladhara at one place so that devotees can commence their Navratri Pujan auspiciously.
Devi Shailputri is worshiped along with Mahadev as her consort. She is the daughter of Parvatraj Himalaya and thus named Parvati. As per the mythology, Maa Shailputri is the goddess of Muladhara Chakra and worshipping Shailputri on the first day of Navratri helps in awakening this chakra of devotion and dedication to begin the spiritual journey for next nine days.
What Is Maa Shailputri Puja?
One cannot begin the devotional journey for nine days of Navratri without awakening their spiritual self. The worshipping of Maa Shailputri on the first day of Navratri energizes Muladhar Chakra, which until recently was lacking power and strength to face difficult situations in life. Shailputri Pujan on the first day of Navratri helps in concentrating on Muladhara, which is considered to be the starting point of any spiritual discipline.
