Mula Nakshatram in Ashwayuja masam, during devi Sharannavaratri is the Janma Nakshatram of Goddess Sri Saraswati matha.
Aksharabhyasam on the day is very auspicious and a blessing to the children. Also, we perform pustaka pooja for successful learning.
Kanya / Kumari pooja
Girls below the age 5 years (Kanyaka) are treated as the manifestation of Lalitha devi, the source of the universe. The pooja performed to Kanyaka is directly received by maa Durga and we get the abundant blessings from Mata.
Similar to Kanya pooja, Sumangali pooja is also very important during the devi nava ratri. The pooja involves worshipping a married woman, Sumangali, considering her as a manifestation of Goddess Durga.
It is believed that Goddess Lalitha devi gives many folds (Sahasra) of what ever we offer during Kanya pooja and Sumangali pooja
