Sharad Navratri Rituals 

  • The person makes a vow to observe a fast on the first day of Navratri. People commit to fast for a maximum of 2, 3, or 9 days on this day.
  • After making the decision, barley is planted in the earthen altar, which is then mounted on the Kalash. Let me explain. The Kalash is seen as the form of Lord Ganesha. Hence this tradition is kept because the Hindu religion dictates that Lord Ganesha must be worshiped before beginning any auspicious task.
  • Keep the Kalash after cleaning the place with Gangajal. After that, pray to the gods.
  • Put seven varieties of grains, some coins, and soil into the Kalash, then decorate it with five different leaf types.

Importance And Ritual Of Lighting Eternal Flame (Akhand Jyoti)

To continuously burn the eternal flame for the nine days of Navratri is advised in the scriptures. After lighting the Akhand Jyot, extra care should be taken to ensure that it is never left alone and is never extinguished, even accidentally. It is believed that lighting an Akhand Jyot during Navratri pleases Bhagwati Devi, who then grants her devotees’ wishes. In addition, take extra care to ensure that the Akhand Jyoti is always lit with only pure cow ghee. If pure ghee is unavailable, you can still light an Akhand Jyoti with oil.

An Akhand Jyot is lit on the first day of Navratri to fast and honor the mother for the nine days of Navratri. By doing this, happiness, tranquility, and prosperity are maintained in the home while enabling a person to complete all their desired chores. The Akhand Jyoti is to be protected according to the rule.      

  • On the right side of the mother’s image or deity, the Akhand Jyot should be placed. On the other hand, if you’re using oil to start an eternal flame, keep it to the mother’s left.
  • Additionally, keeping the Akhand Jyoti in the northeast is always lucky because this direction is believed to be the location of the gods.
  • You should take extra caution to avoid repeatedly replacing the wick in the Akhand Jyoti.
