Navratri 2017- Know The Auspicious Time to Worship, Ghatasthapna Muharat and Puja Vidhi.

Happy Navratri

The celebration begins on September 21st, most of the Hindus will be on fasting with the faithful and worshipping nine different avatars of Goddess Durga in this 9- days.

The first day of Navratri, Shailputri is worshipped as a mother, this day the Kalash is set up and on the urn Swarthik is made. After the mouli is tied on the Kalash and it is filled with water and kept ready for nine days. On the day of Ashtami of Navaratri some people worship their daughter and some do worship on a ninth day. The fruits of Navaratri are not found without the virgin worship. The most important worship is Virgo and people considered little girls (under age 13) to be the form of mother Durga.

Happy Navratri

The Kalash sthapna or ghatasthapna is the most important ritual as it marks the beginning of the Navratris.  To invoke Goddess Durga, Ghatasthapna is the way and the correct muhurat for the ritual is the most important.


As per the Drik Panchang, these are the thithis for Pratipada:

Pratipada Tithi Begins- 10:59 on 20/Sep/2017
Pratipada Tithi Ends- 10:34 on 21/Sep/2017

Ghatasthapana Muhurta- 06:12 to 08:09 will last for almost two hours, the Drik Panchang says.
Duration- 1 Hour 56 Mins

However, some astrologers say that the kalash sthapna is best done in the 'Abhijit Muhurat'.
Abhijit Muhurat for Ghatasthapana- 11:46 am to 12:34 pm

The devotees, Ghatasthapana must be done in the right muhurat as there would be a Rahu kaal later in the day. Rahu Kaal begins on 3:16 pm

9 Days of  Navratri are celebrated with an avatar of Goddess Shakti.
