Mahagauri is a goddess who took up austere practices to get Shiva as her husband.Such was the extremity of her austerities and the duration of time that passed, she became completely dark and covered in dirt. Shiva, impressed the resolute devotion came and himself cleansed her, with the result that Mahagauri gained a cosmic radiance and gained her name.|

She is depicted as a radiant goddess, who rides a bull, has three eyes, four hands – in one hand she holds a trident, another a damru and the other two hands are in the varmudra and abhay mudra. She is visualized by the yogi as an eight year old girl. This is precisely why Kumari Puja or “kanya pujan” is done on ashtami or the eighth day of the Navratris. This ritual is a homage to the virgin goddess.
This day, the meditation is focused on all the chakras one by one, signifying the eternal journey of the soul.

The round button shaped pearl is fully natural and treatment free. This natural Australian pearl has a radiant white color and has smooth and blemish free surface.
