Nava Durga Brahmacharini
Painting - Poster Colors On Paper
In Hindu mythology, Brahmacharini is one of the nine forms of Goddess Durga. She is worshiped on the second night of Navratri festival. Here word Brahma refers to Tapa. So Brahmcharini means Tapa Charini The one who perform Tapa or penance. Parvati earned this name when she practiced severe penances of Lord Shiva. She is the second of the Nav-Durgas (Nine Durgas). I have depicted Brahmacharini according to the description given in following mantra.
दधाना करमद्माभ्यामक्षमालाकमण्डलू |
देवी प्रसीदतु मयि ब्रह्मचारिण्यनुत्तमा ||
May the supreme Brahmachari Durga, who holds rosary and kamandalu in her lotus hands and whose nature is to attain Sachchidanandamaya Brahmaswarupa the Existence-Knowledge-Bliss absolute, be propitious on me.
