Important things related to Navratri

Shailputri Devi, the first form of Maa Durga, is worshiped after the establishment of the Kalash on the first day of Navratri. Most people observe the first fast of Navratri on this day. Those who cannot keep fast for 9 days of Navratri, they keep fast on the first day and Durga Ashtami. This is called the ascension of Navratri.

Girls are worshiped on the day of Maha Ashtami and Havan is performed on Mahanavami or Dashami. But in many places, Havan is performed on the day of Durga Ashtami. Even though people fast for the entire 9 days, they still perform Havan on Navami or Dashami and perform Parana on the day of Dussehra.
