Sharad Navratri Ghatasthapana Rules

Ghatasthapana Muhurta falls on Pratipada Tithi.
Ghatasthapana Muhurta falls during Chitra Nakshatra which cannot be avoided.
Ghatasthapana Muhurta falls during Vaidhriti Yoga which cannot be avoided.

Ghatasthapana is one of the significant rituals during Navratri. It marks the beginning of nine days of festivity. Our scriptures have well-defined rules and guidelines to perform Ghatasthapana during a certain period of time at the beginning of Navratri. Ghatasthapana is the invocation of Goddess Shakti and doing it wrong time, as our scriptures forewarn, might bring the wrath of the Goddess Shakti. Ghatasthapana is prohibited during Amavasya and night time.

The most auspicious or Shubh time to do Ghatasthapana is the first one-third of the day while Pratipada is prevailing. If due to some reasons, this time, is not available then Ghatasthapana can be done during Abhijit Muhurta. It is advised to avoid Nakshatra Chitra and Vaidhriti Yoga during Ghatasthapana but those are not prohibited. The most important factor to consider is that Ghatasthapana is done before Hindu midday while Pratipada is prevailing.
