Why Is Kanya Puja Performed?

The Main Reason Behind the Puja

The ritual and tradition of Kanya Puja is a very important part of Navratri. It is celebrated because it is said in scriptures that every human has a part of god inside them. However, the god remains only if the human continues to stay kind and innocent.

Children are usually considered innocent and pure. They have no evil thoughts inside them. Thus, it is believed that worshipping a child for a day can have faster results. This is because if a child is happy then God is happy as well.

Kanya Puja is celebrated on the 8th and 9th day of Navratri. It represents 9 different goddesses. Their names are: Kumarika, Trimurti, Kalyani, Rohini, Kali, Chandika, Shambhavi, Durga and Subhadra.

Important Factors of Kanya Puja

Little girls usually sit in the Kanya Puja. They are considered to be a replica of NavDurga goddess. Hence, they are worshipped on the 8th and 9th day of Navratri. People actually invite girls to their houses and offer them food as we offer it to god. Hence, it is called as bhog.

The reason behind doing this is that the Goddess Durga will be pleased. She is worshipped in various forms during these nine days. Also, it is said that Goddess Durga had actually killed a cruel demon during this time by taking an avatar of a small girl. Hence, the goddess will be impressed.

Although, an important thing to remember is that the girl that is worshipped should be healthy and completely free from all the diseases and even physical issues. Also, you need to invite girls based on your desire. If you want to glory and fame, then invite kshatriya girls. On the other hand, if you want wealth and prosperity, then vaishya girls and if you wish to have a son, then Shudra girls. Brahmin girls are invited to fulfill all sorts of desires.

Kanya Puja Vidhi and Rituals

Some various traditions and rituals need to be followed while performing Kanya Puja. There should be 9 girls only. Thus, invite all the girls beforehand. If some girl cancels, you will have time to invite another girl.

Once they come, make sure to wash their feet. After that, give them clothes and gifts. Gifting clothes is compulsory and with that, it is a good idea to give one more item. Arrange a special pedestal for that day in your house and ask the girls to sit there.

Perform aarti on all the 9 girls. After that, put tilka, rice grains and vermilion on their forehead. Then offer them food and water. The food usually comprises of puri, chana and halwa. Women devotees then have to touch their feet after they are done.

Decorate the House Before Performing the Puja

Various preparations need to be done before the Kanya Puja. However, do not forget to clean and decorate your house as well. It is important to have some decorations so that a proper festive vibe is created.

Kanya Puja is usually done in the morning and thus, decorating the house with lights is needed. Instead, you can have flower garlands and torans at your home entrance. Apart from that, you can also do rangoli near the entrance.

If you have a center table, then decorate it well. You can put some fresh flowers in a vase. Apart from that, just covering the tabletop with an embroidered cloth will also look very nice. Also, a pedestal needs to be arranged for the rituals. Make sure to decorate that with flowers and paints if possible.
