Navaratri factually means ‘nine nights’. This festival is observed twice a year, formerly in the beginning of summer and once more at the onset of winter. During Navaratri, we raise the energy aspect of God in the outline of the universal mother, commonly referred to as ‘Durga,’ which exactly means the remover of sadness of life. She is also referred to as ‘Devi’ (goddess) or ‘Shakti’ (energy or power).
It is this energy, which assists God to proceed with the work of formation, safeguarding, and devastation. In other words, you can say that God is static, completely eternal, and the Divine Mother Durga does the whole lot. Truthfully speaking, our worship of Shakti re-confirms the scientific theory that energy is everlasting. It cannot be formed or shattered. It is always there. In India, the festival begins on the new moon day falling amid September 15 & October 15. In East Asia, it starts on the 9th day of the 9th lunar month.
In India, the main theme is the celebration of truth over iniquity. It is celebrated as Garbha-Dandiya, Ramlila, Golu and Durga Pooja in different parts of the country. It is perhaps the most significant Indian festival you have never heard of. Fundamentally, it is an art festival and the merriment of good over the evil. Women take an innermost stage by enchanting navratri songs in this festival and it is a celebration of feminine traits such as dance, music and adornment. It is celebrated over 10 days in September-October. It is also a souvenir of the momentous status of women in India and how they held lot more power in ancient India.
Every year the beginning of summer and the beginning of winter are two very significant junctures of climatic change and solar influence. These two junctions have been selected as the sacred opportunities for the worship of the divine power because we believe that it is the divine power that offers energy for the earth to move around the sun, causing the transformation in the outer nature and that this divine power must be thanked for preserving the correct balance of the universe. Due to the amends in nature, the bodies and minds of people endure a considerable change, and hence, we worship the divine power to bequeath upon all of us enough potent powers to preserve our physical and mental balance.
Navratri is alienated into sets of three days to adore dissimilar aspects of the utmost goddess. On the primary three days, the Mother is raised as a prevailing force called Durga in order to demolish all our impurities, vices and faults. The next three days, the Mother is adored as a donor of saintly wealth, Lakshmi, who is considered to have the power of conferring on her devotees the infinite wealth. The final set of three days is depleted in worshipping the mother as the goddess of knowledge, Saraswati. In order have all-around achievement in life, we need the blessings of all three aspects of the divine mother; therefore, the worship for nine nights. Thus, you should join your parents in worshipping ‘Ma Durga’ all through the Navaratri. She will bequeath on your prosperity, auspiciousness, opulence, facts, and other potent powers to cross every hurdle of life. Remember, everyone in this world worships power, i.e., Durga, since there is no one who does not love and longs for power in some shape or the other.
