Nav Chandi Puja


Nav Chandi Puja, observed over nine days, venerates Goddess Chandi for strength and victory, performed with devotion during Navratri to seek her blessings for courage and protection.

Nav Chandi Puja is a special and rare ritual that is typically performed during Navratri, a Hindu festival. The main significance of Nav Chandi Puja lies in Navratri, where a recitation of the Durga Saptashati Paath is performed. It is a potent sacrificial ceremony that involves the chanting of the Durga Saptashati Mantra each day during Navratri. Nav Chandi is unique because it harnesses the power of the Durga Saptashati Mantra, and its recitation during Navratri is believed to have great spiritual benefits.

This puja and Yagna (fire ritual) are conducted to counteract the negative effects of planetary positions and to fulfill various desires, including health, wealth, strength, prosperity, and success in life. It is believed that Nav Chandi Yagna can remove obstacles, enemies, and the adverse effects of celestial bodies. By performing this Yagna, devotees seek blessings from Lord Ganesha, Lord Shiva, the nine planets (Nav Grah), and the nine forms of the Goddess Durga (Nav Durga) for overall well-being and success.


Nav Chandi Puja serves multiple purposes and is believed to bring various benefits, including:

  1. Fulfillment of Desires: Nav Chandi Puja is performed to fulfill the wishes and desires of the worshiper.
  2. Health and Longevity: This puja is believed to bestow good health and contribute to a long and prosperous life.
  3. Name and Fame: It is thought to bring fame, recognition, and prosperity to the devotee.
  4. Moksha (Salvation): Some perform Nav Chandi Puja with the goal of attaining moksha or liberation from the cycle of birth and death.
  5. Counteracting Malefic Planetary Effects: The puja is said to mitigate the adverse effects of malefic planets in one’s astrological chart.
  6. Purification of Mind, Body, and Environment: Nav Chandi Puja helps in purifying the mind, body, and soul of the worshiper, creating a serene and sacred environment.

In essence, Nav Chandi Puja is a powerful and comprehensive ritual with the potential to bring about positive changes in various aspects of life.
