Jai Maa Vaishno Devi - Mata Vaishno Devi Darshan - Happy Navratris Beej Mantra

Beej Mantra for Goddess Mahakali, Mahalakshmi, and Mahasaraswati - Navratras Pujan - OM AIM HREEM KLEEM CHAMUNDAYE VICHAY

Significance of Mata Vaishno Devi

Mata Vaishno Devi is the holy cave-shrine of Goddess Mahalakshmi, Mahakali, and Mahasaraswati. It is a very popular pilgrimage among Hindus. Devotees from around the world visit the shrine everyday. It is located in the serene-niches of Trikuta Mountains, forming a part of lower Himalayas.

In the cave shrine, there are-images of three deities or Goddess Mahakali, Mahalakshmi, and Mahasaraswati and all three of them are considered to be forms of Maa Shakti; Goddess of Energy.

Fortunately by Goddess Durga's grace, me with my family have been visiting Mata Vaishno Devi every year. My three-and-a-half-year-old daughter, Shronika and my wife accompany me to the trip. We all take Goddess Durga's name and happily enjoy the pilgrimage. Last year we also had a chance to visit Golden Temple in Amritsar and did darshan of Wahe Guru Ji. I am uploading a few photographs of Mata Vaishno Devi with some information about the places we use to visit during our trip.

Mata's auspicious Navratras have started and today is the first navratra. I have fasted today and my wife has kept all the seven fasts as she used to keep. We will visit Maa Vaishno Devi in 2016 if maa will call us.

In 2015, I poured all the love streaming through my heart and soul in the feet of my beloved mother Maa Kali. I am very thankful to Maa Kali - Om Kali Ma as she fulfilled my wish. People take her wrong as she is goddess of death and destruction but she destroys our ego and hate. She is so lively, lovely and vibrant. She is blissful and charming. Her dark color is deep and intense and she is motherly and full of divine energy. I asked her to show me the path and she is constantly helping me. I have complete faith on her and by her grace I will definitely realize all my dreams.

I pray to all three mothers to lift the poor and helpless and wish good luck to everyone. Under her guidance I will spread love and respect of other human beings and also animals and birds. My dear friends, when you come in refuge (sharan) of Mataji, do confess and share all your pains, and sorrows. Promise her that you will follow her advice and ask her to show path and she will definitely guide you. Then she will start giving you hints so strong that you cannot ignore these. Don't feel shy from her as she knows everything. All the wrongdoings you have done with yourself or with other people. Ask her to please forgive.

Jai Maa Kali

Jai Maa Lakshmi

Jai Maa Saraswati

Halemane Muralikrishna from South India on April 07, 2020:

Mr Rajinder, I liked the Pahadwali Mata and the Vishnodevi Katra, Valley photos very much. I think visiting here during less crowded periods will be enjoyable. Very nice article and very nice photos.

Rajinder Soni (author) from New Delhi, India on April 07, 2016:

It is difficult to get accommodation at Bhawan. It is better to stay at Katra in any of the hotels or at Niharika Guest house maintained by Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board. At Bhawan the online bookings get over within seconds of release.

jyoti on October 26, 2015:

Can we get accommodation in Bhagwan after reaching there .actualy they are not showing online accomadation. Whenever we open the official site it shows not available. Or is there any other way to get an accommodation. We are planing for end of dec n have a kid along

jai mata di, he maa ,hmari galtiyo pe dhyaan na dijiye aur ham par kripa kijiye maa

Rajinder Soni (author) from New Delhi, India on December 15, 2012:

Hello Debashish, I have never heard and it also does not sound true of what that person is saying to you. You can visit Mata's holy shrine, Ardhkuwari, and Bhairo Baba temple as many times as you like in your lifetime. Mata does not put restrictions or hurdles in front of devotees but it's our own people on earth who do it. Following customs and traditions is a very good thing but following them unlogically or following a culture that hinders your visit to your deity is a useless thing.

DEBASISH PAL on December 15, 2012:

I VISIT MAA VISHNO DEVI IN FOUR TIME AND THREE TIME I VISIT ARDHKUWARI BUT ONE PERSON SAY THAT ARDHKUWARI IS VISIT ONE TIME IN A LIFE . IT IS TRUE OR NOT .
