jagaddhAtrI pujA

jagaddhAtrI pujA, one of the most important festivals of bangavAsis ( Bengalis )is the worship of sakthI or the divine power. It is basically a festival with a long series of rituals followed on every day of the pujA. Like durgApujA this Deity is also worshipped for three consecutive days of mahAsaptamI , mahAashthamI and mahAnavamI .
{ This year timings based on Indian Standard Time:
saptamI : 18th November, 2015 Wednesday
asthamI: 19th November, 2015 Thursday
navamI: 20th November, 2015 Friday
dashamI: 21st November, 2015 Saturday  }
The ruling to perform the special pujA of the goddess on the ninth lunar day of the light fortnight in the month kArtika  (in our regional dialect we pronounce it kAtI   ) has been mentioned in krityakarmodaya by srInATha AcharyachudAmani of th15-16th CE. It is the time of the year when the weather is at its moderate best giving the air a festive touch. The formal difference between durgA ( durgai) and occurs in Tantra Literatures. It is that between Devi Durga and jagaddhAtrI lies in mAyA tantraM and jagaddhAtrI is mentioned with reference to durgA in tantrasAra of krishnAnanda AgamavAgisha . As per ancient paurAnika lore of the Hindu scriptures, soon after the victory  the devAs became highly egoistic. They thought because of lending to durgA their instruments the mighty asuras were vanquished. To make them understand that the primordial power is alone behind every action, then paraMshivA ( parambramha ) appeared before the devAsin the form of effulgent yaksha .
Bewildered by its presence one by one the devas approached yaksha. First the god of wind vAyU. The yaksha asked him what he could do. The vAyU replied that he could throw away huge trees, tumble high mountains. The yaksha then placed a small grass and asked him to move it. The vAyU utilised all his powers but lo! he could not even displace it. So also the god of fire Agni, could not even burn it. Likewise one by one the devas failed. And it dawned on them that their powers are in reality not their own but derived from the supreme power who as protecting mother holds the entire creation and therefore called jagaddhAtrI . ( shrUtI ref: kenopnishada ब्रह्म ह देवेभ्यो विजिग्ये तस्य ह ब्रह्मणो
विजये देवा अमहीयन्…..
…..
स तस्मिन्नेवाकाशे स्त्रियमाजगाम बहुशोभमानामुमाँ
हैमवतीं ताँहोवाच किमेतद्यक्षमिति….
. )
Anybody who worships jagaddhAtrI becomes absolutely ego less and a true servant of the world which is nothing but a manifestation of the Brahman.

In tantra she is depicted as being the colour of the morning sun, three-eyed and four-armed, holding chakra, conch, bow and arrow, clothed in red, bright jewels and nAgaygnopavitha , a symbol of Yoga and the Brahman. She rides a lion standing on the dead karIndrAsura, the Elephant Demon. “Jagaddhatri arises in the heart of a person,” said Sri Ramakrishna, “who can control the frantic elephant called mind.” Recitation of jagaddhAtrI stotra has highly spritual benefits so I’m also including that. Either one should worship jagaddhAtrI in a lamp / jalakumbha/shivaling with panchopchAras and should recite this stotra or  meditation on stotra should be done .It was grace of hemAvatI ( jagaddhAtrI ) that devas were able to recognize paraM brahma so let all of us try to seek grace of jagaddhAtrI  so we too can recognize brahman.
