sudha sl,

The Devi Mahatmyam is a collection of 700 Slokas on Sri Durga from Markandeya Purana

Navaratri is celebrated four times a year. They are Ashada Navaratri, the Sharada Navaratri, the Maha Navaratri and the Vasantha Navaratri.

Of these, the Sharada Navaratri of the month of Puratashi and the Vasantha Navaratri of the Vasantha kala are very important.

If you refer to the agni purana, then it is said that the Puratashi and Panguni (in Tamil months) i.e. Asvin and Chaitra are like the two jaws of Lord Yama. If one wants to escape the mouth of Yama, then one should celebrate Navaratri on these two occasions.

A similar analogy is presented in the devi bhagavatam. Devi bhagavatam also talks in detail on how one should observe fasts, and how one should meditate/work on these days.

According to legend, Durga sat on the tip of a needle for nine days, doing a severe penance to destroy the evil Asura Mahisha. On the first three days, she meditated as Herself, the next three days as Mahalakshmi and the last three days as Sarasvati.

This signifies progression from tamsik, to rajasik to satvik and eventually obtaining liberation. The tenth day during Sharada Navaratri is called vijayadashami to signify the victory on the day of dashami.

It is, however, a long tradition that one reads the devi-bhagavatam or the devi mahatmyam (Durga saptashati, 700 verses on Durga) during this period. Devi bhagavatam notes that Rama meditated and fasted for nine days after Sita was kidnapped by Ravana.

It is considered auspicious to recite the Devi Maahaatmyam during Navaraatri as follows:

Chapter 1 on 1st day.

Chapter 2 to 4 on 2nd day.

Chapter 5 and 6 on 3rd day.

Chapter 7 on 4th day.

Chapter 8 on 5th day.

Chapter 9 and 10 on 6th day.

Chapter 11on 7th day.

Chapter 12 on 8th day.

Chapter 13 on 9th day.

Chapter 14 on 10th day. (…)
