(1 of 9)NAV DURGA - 9 Forms of Devi DURGA worshiped during NAV RATRI

I would like to describe to you the nine forms of sree durga mata - the Nav Durga.

First Durga Shailputri (Daughter of Mountain)

She is a daughter of Himalaya and first among nine Durgas. In
previous birth she was the daughter of Daksha. Her name was Sati - Bhavani. I.e. the wife of Shiv. Once Daksha had organized a big Yagna and did not invite Shivaji. But Sati being obstinate, reached there. Thereupon Daksha insulted Shivaji. Sati could not tolerate the insult of husband and burnt herself in the fire of Yagns.

In other birth she became the daughter of Himalaya in the name of Parvati - Hemvati and got married with Shivaji.

As per Upnishad she had torn and the egotism of Indra, etc. Devtas.Being ashamed they bowed and prayed that, "In fact, thou are Shakti, we all - Brahma, Vishnu and Shiv are capable by getting Shakti from you."
