Navratri occurs four times in a year. The one that is celebrated in the month of Chaitra is also called as Basant Navaratri. The other name of the one celebrated in the month of Ashadh is Varsha Ritu Navaratri. In the month of Aswin, the Sharadiya Navaratri is observed and the Sishir Navaratri falls on the month of Magha. These four Navratris are grouped under two heads namely Prakat or open type and Gupt or the secret type. While those falling during the months of Chaitra and Aswin are Prakat Navaratris, those observed during the months of Ashadh and Magh are Gupt Navratris. Here are some Gupt Navratri Mantras for you.
The essence of Navratri Worship
The general rule of all the Navratris is to worship mother goddess in her different forms. While the most common kind of worship includes the celebration of the Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati forms of divinity, Shakti worship heralding the nine forms of Durga is highly popular and said to be efficacious in winning the grace of Ma Durga.
The nine forms of Durga worshipped on the nine days of Gupt Navratri includes Shailaputri, Brahmacharini, Chandraghanta, Kushmanda, Skandamata, Katyayani, Kalratri, Mahagauri, Siddhidatri. Chanting some popular mantras during Gup Navratri can help win the blessings of Ma Durga towards different ends in life.

Procedure for chanting Gupt Navratri Mantras
The most favourable times to chant these mantras are dawn and dusk. You need to take bath, maintain a pure heart, sit in front of the image or picture of goddess and chant the chosen mantra 108 times or in convenient cycles. Mantras are no doubt highly powerful. However, the most important aspect in getting the desired benefit out of them is to chant them with full concentration and faith.
Down the history, divine grace has been rewarding genuine prayers and granting people with reasonable expectations. However, greedy use of mantras shall often yield negative results as God always sees the purity of heart and rewards it appropriately.
