    I wan to know how to break the fast, I mean what pooja should I perform to break he fast on the 9 day. and please let me know when should I break the fast is it on navami or astami?


      You can break your fast on Navami. Before breaking the Upavas you should perform Devi Udwasana Puja and chant Devi Apada Uddaraka stotram.

      Devi Apadoddaraka stotram’s main purpose is to pray the Goddess to forgive us for any faults that we have done during the fast and puja.

    What i understood from this article is that fasting is very much related to detoxification of the body & health due to changing climate during Navratri period..
