Shyamala Navratri 2022 Dates

Every year, the Hindu calendar celebrates four Navratri festivals.  Those are

  1.  Vasantha Navratri in the month of Chaitra 
  2. Varahi Navratri in the month of Ashada
  3. Sharda Navratri in the month of Ashvayuja 
  4. Shyamala Navratri or Matangi Navratri in the month of Magha

 
Every year, these four Navratris occur. Chaitra and Ashwayuja Navratri are well-known. The other two are Gupta Navratri and Gupta Navratri. Only those who have a tradition perform this. Gupta Navratri is predominantly observed in North India. Gupta Navratri is not like other pujas and Vratas in that it does not welcome everyone. These are carried out in complete secrecy. Goddess Durga is worshipped in nine forms, known as Navadurgs, throughout the nine days of Gupta Navratri.
 
In South India, this Navratri is celebrated as Shyamala Navratri. These Navratri are very special. Devotional worship of Goddess Shyamala on Navratri brings good jobs, higher ranks, education, and prosperity. Puranas and Itihasas also tell us that develop strong relationships between husbands and wives and get married quickly whos looking for marriage In order to kill the demon Bhandasura, Adi Parasakti emerges as Sri Lalita Devi and re-creates all god and Goddess. In order to create a goddess, Shyamala originated and she got appointed as Prime minister (Mantrini) of Goddess Lalitha. For that reason, Shyamaladevi is also known as Mantrini Devi. This mother is called Matangi in Dasha Maha Vidya.
 
This Navratri is known as Shyamala Navratri in South India. This Navratri is very special in the Hindu calendar. On the Navratri festival, devotional worship of Goddess Shyamala provides favorable jobs, higher positions, education, and prosperity. Puranas and Itihasas also advise us to build strong relationships between husbands and wives and to marry soon for those who are looking for a spouse. To destroy the demon Bhandasura, Adi Parasakti takes the form of Sri Lalita Devi and re-creates the entire universe. Shyamala was created in order to generate goddesses, and she was appointed as Goddess Lalitha's Prime Minister (Mantrini). Shyamaladevi is also known as Mantrini Devi because of this. In Dasha Maha Vidya, this mother is known as Matangi.

How did this mother get the name Mathangi?

Matanga Maharshi is a companion of Himavantha (the father of Goddess Parvathi). He has worshipped Shyamala for many years, and his dream for Shyamala to become his daughter has been granted. Shyamala was born as Matanga's daughter and became known as Matangi Devi, as per his wishes. Godess Shyamala is also known as Neela Saraswati, Geya Chakra Vasini, Laghu Shyamala, Vagvadhini Shyamala, Nakula Shyamala, Hasanti Shyamala, Sarvasiddhi Matangi, Vasya Matangi, Sarika Shyamala, Shuka Shyamala, Raja Matangi.
