Hitherto Unknown Secrets !

Oh SHaunak and other  rishis listen One should worship MAHALAKSHM , MAHAKALI as present in SARASWATI as also in the form of DURGA during the nine days starting from prathama of Ashwayuj shukla paksha.

For any reason one cannot worship all the nine days then one can start the worship from MOOLA NAKSHATRA ONWARDS . or atleast on the ninth day one should definitely worship godess saraswati .One will get permanent happiness through this vrat and all the sins will vanish .

we shall enumerate a practical example to highlight this vrat . ONCE upon a time in dwapar yuga there was a KING by the name RAAJVARMA of KINGDOM KAUTUMBI  . He was truthful and abiding by the dharma . He was very caring and towards his subjects and also towards his family .

He had a very beautiful , good looking bright  lusturous skinned women of good qualities as his wife by name CHANDRAMUKHI .

One day in kAUTUMBI war broke out among the brothers of the KING to divide the kingdom , All the aspirants of the throne waged the war along with their armies onto RAAJVARMA . 21 days day and night battle went on and lastly owing to vidhi [destiny] RAAJVARMA lost the battle as all his army was destroyed . RAAJVARMA along with his wife went into the forest hit by bad luck . Destiny as it were the king and wife went without food for many a days in the jungle which was dense .

Many days of hunger thirst and sleeplessness made the king suffer ill health and unable to walk in the deep jungle . Pativrata wife Chandramukhi , took her disease struck husband onto her back and making a loud cry went deeper into the jungle in search of shelter food and rest .

SAGE ANGEERAS [ ancestors of chiraan ] was deep into meditation in the forest , hearing the loud cry of anguish of a woman in the jungle sage Angeeras was deeply perturbed and curious too . He went into the direction of the cry and found a helpless woman struggling alongwith her diseased husband . The sage took pity onto the couple , brought them to ashram . after feeding them and medicating the KIng ,. ASKED about his state and advent into the forest ,

CHANDRAMUKHI retold the miseries they had to undergo as a result of defeat in the war and asked for the remedies to end their miseries .

Sage Angeeras said let me tell you the remedy for your miseries to come to an end ,10 yojan from here there is a Panchvati kshetra , by the banks of the river  Saraswati devi has appeared there in the form of DURGA , go and serve her alongwith your husband . Your sufferings will end ,

Ashwayuj month was approaching ,  Chandramukhi learnt all the methodology of the pooja of SARASWATI in the form of DURGA there with the help of a bramhin priest nearby . NINE days she worshipped with concentration and devotion . and on the nINTh day DEVI appeared in the dream of the Chandramukhi blessing her and her husband .

Happy at the dream  , both couples completed their VRATA by offering pada pooja to the Sage ANGEERAS and his wife and gathering whatever they could from nearby places , KHEER [ PAYASAM] was prepared as naivedya [prasad] to goddess Saraswati and with moolmantra of SARASWATI DEVI  a homa was conducted ther in the temple . After as completion of the vRATA Sage Angeerasa and his wife were given dana and CHandramukhi took blessing of the sage .

DEVI SARASWATI was  pleased by Chandramukhi and her vrata . SO chandramukhi became pregnant and after nine months a lovely boy was born . Sage Angeerasa did the jatahkarma to the boy and gave him the name ” SURYAPRATAP ” .

The prince was growing  like shuklapaksha moon . and by the grace of rishi Angeeras and his teachings learnt all the weaponry and astra shastras in a very short time , He was learned  in all the fields to become an able KING .

By the permission of his guru SURYAPRATAP waged a war onto KATUMBI kingdom and with a fierce fight defeated all his enemies and snatched back his Kingdom . Alongwith his mother and Father ascended the throne of KAUTUMBI ,

From that day onwards RANI CHANDRAMUKHI  carried out Saraswati vrat every year with pomp and gait and having obtained the grace of KALI MAHALAKSHMI SARASWATI in the form of DURGA lived happily with all the pleasures and fortunes .

Those born as humans should always yearn for the grace of Godess SARASWATI and by her graceful glance should obtain all the fortunes . Those who tell this story or listen to it get the KrUPAKATAKSH of GODDESS SARASWATI and his sins will be destroyed and one will obtain SAYUJYA by divine blessings of LORD PARSHURAM as present in MA SARASWATI in the form of DURGA .

krishnarpanamastu .

  1. Guruji what does krupakataksh and suyujaya mean?


    • Guruji u belong to very learned lineage…no wonder u have so much knowledge and your remedies work when the remedies of high profile astrologers charging a bomb also don’t work…!!!!!hehe 🙂

      I remember having read this article long ago….an thus i remebered u belonged to a very nice lineage but i had forgotten with time and was always wondering the name of Sage Angeeras 🙂

    thank u my dear i did this pooja last yr was not able to read the katha
    this year i am lucky enough to find this
    thank u very much


    • One thing to note in this story is when sat tapatraya strikes a person .. even sages dont prescribe instant remedies …Though Sage is capable pf destroying the sins of the person taking his shelter … though he is capable of blessing instant success ….[ remember when a curse of sage ca take effect immediately so also a boon ] but here there is no HARI sankalpa thus sage prescribed a vrata ….doing this vrata was prarabdha ….so sat prarabdha cannot be changed ,,..

    Are madhwas allowed to worship kali? I thought mahakali is a kooshmaanda devata.. In your article you suggest Mahakali in the form of saraswati devi, but is direct worship of Sri Mahakali devi allowed for us?


  4. Nice post!

    It was on the Shukla Paksha that i started putting kolam and lighting 2 diyas early in the morning with 12 namaskarams. I was advised to do so.

    I reminded early in the morning to do this. But I do this by 6:15 am in the morning, by that time i wouldnt have taken bath even.

    Is that fine to do this before taking bath?


  5. Guruji when is moola nakshatra?

    and Guruji 9th day is on october 16th??
    I want to keep a fast that day…Guruji what is the procedure??
    am i supposed to read some particular story that day (Vrat Katha)??
    and what other things must i follow to undertake the fast successfully Guruji?
    Is the fast supposed to be a nirjala fast (without water) ?
    Though my parents keep fasts during Navratra but i do not wish to ask them 😦

    However Guruji I am sure lot of people would want to undertake this fast….please tell if we need to observe some special procedure as well..


    • today is moola nakshatra , there is no fast in this vrat , we worship our books , light diya which should be lit allthrough the nine days , five days or three or atleast one day . , but japa is necessary .


      • Thank you Guruji…my father carries out all these things…he lights diyas all 9 days and does japa also… Guruji what is the Japa that i can do??


  6. Many thanks for this post. Hadn’t heard of this story before.. I thought Saraswathi and Durga are different goddesses.
    Also, is it not Ksheera Vrata during Dassera? How come kheer is in neivedya?
