9-Navamee Vrat-9th Day Vrat
Agni Puraan, 21
Aashwin Shukla Navamee - Gauree Navamee Vrat
Aashwin Shukla Navamee (9th Day of Nav Raatri days before Dashaharaa) is
the day for this Vrat. Keep fast on this day and worship Devee. This
Navamee is called Pisht Navamee, that is why after keeping this fast, one
should eat Pishtaann.
If there is a Yog of Ashtamee and Mool Nakshatra and Soorya is in Kanyaa Raashi (Virgo
Sign), that is called Mahaa Navamee. It destroys all sins. This day one should worship
9 Durgaa establishing them at one place or at separate places. One should keep 18-armed
Mahaa Lakshmee picture or idol flanked by other Devees. They should be established in this way - Rudrachandaa,
Prachandaa, Chandograa, Chandnaayikaa, Chandaa, Chandvatee, Poojyaa, Chandaroopaa, and
Ati-Chandikaa. And in the center should be 18-armed Ugrachandaa Mahish Mardinee Durgaa.
Their 10-letter Mantra is - "Aum Durgey Durgey Rakshasi Swaahaa".
