Mata Brahmacharini Form

Brahmacharini means the one who practices penance. This form of the Goddess is full of light and extremely grand. This Brahmacharini Mata has a rosary of chanting in her right hand and a kamandal in her left hand.

Story of Brahmacharini

In her previous birth, this goddess was born in the form of a daughter in the house of Himalaya, and with the advice of Naradji, she performed severe penance to get Lord Shankar as her husband. Due to this difficult penance, she was named as Tapashcharini i.e. Brahmacharini. She spent a thousand years eating only fruits and flowers and for a hundred years, she lived only on the land.

Fasted rigorously for a few days and endured the harsh hardships of rain and sun under the open sky. She continued to eat Bilva leaves and worship Lord Shankar for three thousand years. After this, she even stopped eating dried Bilva leaves. She continued to do penance by remaining waterless and fasting for several thousand years. She was named Aparna because she stopped eating leaves.

Due to severe penance, the goddess’s body became completely emaciated. Gods, sages, Siddhagans, and sages all praised Brahmacharini’s penance as an unprecedented virtuous act and said – O Goddess, to date no one has performed such harsh penance. This could only be possible with you. Your wishes will be fulfilled and you will get Lord Shiva as your husband. Now leave penance and return home. Your father will be coming soon to call you.
