First day of Navrate - Shailputri

Durga Pendent Sati married shiva ascetic for love against the whishes of her powerful father King Daksh. When Daksh hosted a yajna to which all the good were invited save sati and her spouse the daughter of the house decided to attend festivities uninvited and against the advice of her husband . in order to convince shiva to let her go to her paternal house, sati created or unleashed the ten mahavidyas on shiva.

At her paternal house anble to bear the insult offered to her husband by Daksh. Sati jumped in the secred fire and died. And a grief crazed shiva flung the body of sati over his shoulder and dance the tandav and threatened to destroy the world. As pieces of Sati's bodies fell to the earth after being dismembered by Vishnu's chakra, the 51 Shak- tipeeths, or centres of female energy such as Kamakhya in Assam and Kalkaji in Delhi were estab¬lished wherever a part fell.

The same Sati was re-born as the daughter of Shail, and thus called Shailputri. Alternately she is also known as Parvati or Hi- mavati. Espousing Shiva in this lifetime too, she is worshipped on the first Navratra as the first manifestation of the Durga or the Great Goddess. Seated astride a bull and depicted against the mountains, this is a benign goddess who is saturated with gen¬tleness and blessings. A dutiful daughter, the perfect wife, she is also the symbol of the fulfillment of the desires whose thwarting led to the tragedy of Sati.

As a potent force and facet of the female energy, Shailputri claims as her own the Muladhar Chakra. Sym"bolised by a lotus with four petals, this is the lower most chakra, the one which forms the base or foundation of the seven energy centres within the human body.
