Navratri (10 – 18 October 2018)
(Navaratri is the main festival to be celebrated by Hindus in India)
Navaratri is a nine-day festival celebrated in Hinduism which is dedicated to Goddess Durga. On the tenth day after its ninth day, Vijayadashami, that means Dussehra, is celebrated. Shardhi Navaratri is considered as the most important and important mountain in all the Navaratri, hence it is also called Maha Navaratri. During this nine different forms of the mother are worshiped. In the same way, in a year, Chaitra, Ashadh, Ashwin and Magh, together with the Navratri four times come in the month, but Navratri, from the curse of the Shukla party of Chaitra and Ashwin month, is very popular. Due to being in the spring, due to Vasanti Navratri, Vasanti Navaratri is also known as Shardhiya Navaratri, Navratri of Ashwin Mas coming in the autumn. In Chaitra and Ashwin Navaratri, Ashwin Navaratri is said to be called Mahanta Vratra.
One reason for this is that this Navratri falls right before Dussehra, Navratri is opened only on the day of Dussehra. In nine days of Navratri, different forms of worship of the mother are also seen as worship of Shakti.
There are nine different forms of Mother Shailputri, Brahmacharini, Chandharghanta, Kushmanda, Skandmatata, Katiyani, Kalratri, Mahagauri and Siddhidatri Mata. On the first day of Navratri, the substitution is done. After this, the mother is worshiped and fast for nine consecutive days. Fasting is opened on the tenth day after the worship of Kanya.
