Navratri Kanjak Puja

Whom to Worship?

The believers worship 9 girls between the ages of 2 and 10 along with a boy. This boy is considered as Hanuman Ji who is also termed as langur.

During Navratri, these girls are believed to be the avatar of the nine goddesses who are worshipped throughout the Navratri Festival.

In case you don’t find 9 girls, you can do the ritual with 7 or 5 girls. However, if more than 9 girls happen to come to your place, then welcome each one of them with the same enthusiasm.

Why to Worship?

As mentioned above, these girls are worshipped as the nine goddesses whereas the boy as Hanuman Ji.

Hence, it is believed that without doing this, one can not really please the Goddess Durga and the rest.

When to Worship?

You should worship the girls at the end of your 9 days long fast, on the 10th day.

However, people who do not keep this 9 days long fast, like to do this ritual on the 7th, 8th or 9th day of the festival. You should do it in the morning after cleaning the entire house, the puja place, kitchen and everything else.

How to do the ritual?

If you are worried about the rituals, then you should simply follow these steps that I am mentioning below:

  • You should start by inviting the girls over to your house.
  • You should welcome them with your entire family.
  • You should clean their feet and take blessings from them.
  • Then have them seated and put tilak on their forehead.
  • Give them the food you prepared for them. People generally like to offer them chane, halwa and puri.
  • Offer them food, money, fruits and whatever you wish.
  • Take their blessings again and send them home.

Importance of Kanjak Pujan

Believers have their faith on the importance of Kanjan Puja. It starts with believing that the nine girls are representing the nine goddesses of the festival while the boy represents Hanuman Ji. It is important to please these kids in order to please the real goddesses watching over you.
