Worshiping the mother in Navratri provides freedom from sin. The purity of thoughts comes to mind. Every type of negativity is removed. Mothers increase the strength and intelligence of their devotees. Mata Mahagauri had done austerities for many years to get Lord Shiva as her husband. Pleased with penance, Lord Shiva accepted Mother Mahagauri.
Due to severe penance, the body of Mata Mahagauri became black and a layer of dusty clay settled on it. Then Lord Shiva bathed them with Ganges water. By bathing Lord Shiva, the mother’s body glowed like gold. Since then, the mother’s name was Mahagauri.
