Navratri 2022 Day 2 Significance:

It is believed Maa Brahmacharini governs Lord Mangal, the provider of all fortunes. Additionally, the lotuses attached to her body symbolize knowledge, and the white saree represents purity. By worshipping her, virtues such as penance, renunciation, dispassion and restraint improve inherently. One can also enhance their ethical conduct. Additionally, one can achieve all of their goals by praying to the Goddess.

The colour for the second day of Navratri is red. It symbolizes passion and love.

The vibrance of Red colour is associated with Devi or Goddess. For your Navratri mandir decoration, you can use fresh roses and create a large “OM” symbol in the background or you can also use Red chunari or dupatta and create your mandir background setup with it. The second day of the nine days belongs to Goddess Brahmacharini. The Goddess who did severe penance. The word ‘Brahmcharini’ is a derivative of the word Brahma.
