Brahmacharini stands for a devoted female student who only desired to marry Lord Shiva. She is the unmarried avatar of Goddess Parvati. This form is considered as the unmarried mediating form of Goddess Parvati.  Devi Brahmacharini is symbolic of love and immense strength. She holds a rosary in one hand and a Kamandal in the other. It is believed that she governs the planet of Mangal. Also Read – Chaitra Navratri 2021: Here’s How You Can Celebrate Lord Ram’s Birth Amid COVID19 Crisis

She also signifies love, loyalty, wisdom, and knowledge. Brahmacharini is a combination of two Sanskrit roots – Brahma (shortened from Brahman), means “the one self-existent Spirit, the Absolute Reality, Universal Self, Personal God, the sacred knowledge” and charini is the feminine version of one who is a charya, which means “occupation with, engaging, proceeding, behaviour, conduct, to follow, going after”.

According to Hindu mythologies, she was on diet of Bilva leaves for 3000 years while she prayed to Lord Shankar. Later she even stopped eating Bilva leaves and continued her penance without any food and water. She was known as aparna when she left eating Bilva leaves. Goddess Brahmacharini followed a strict fasting regimen while staying at an open place in scorching summers, harsh winters and stormy rains.
